I’m still trying my best to make smart decisions when it comes to snacking and typically opt for food combinations that include a healthy dose of protein, fat and carbohydrates since I know this will keep me satisfied for much longer. Today I’m teaming up with CVS to share some ideas for filling snack pairings you can easily assemble when you’re limited on time!
Five Easy Snack Duos
- Greek Yogurt + Almonds
Greek yogurt has been a snacktime favorite of mine for years. With so many different flavors available these days, it’s easy to eat this one frequently without ever getting sick of it. Topping a cup of the yogurt with nuts adds a crunchy texture and a dose of healthy fats that helps keep me feeling satisfied.
- Cottage Cheese + Dried Fruit
As a big-time fan of sweet and salty flavor combinations, this duo is a big-time favorite. Cottage cheese is a great source of satiating protein and sprinkling a bowl with dried fruit only amps up the flavor!
- Granola Bar + Nut Butter
Spreading peanut butter (or any nut butter!) on top of a granola bar seriously enhances the flavor! Plus, the addition of nut butter adds creaminess, protein and healthy fat to this delicious snack.
- Air Popped Popcorn + Trail Mix
I love this combination because I can eat an entire bag of trail mix in one sitting if I’m not thinking about it. By adding fiber-rich air popped popcorn to the mix, I am able to amp up the volume of trail mix without eating my bodyweight in the higher-calorie trail mix staples like nuts, dried fruit and chocolate pieces. Plus, the flavor combinations in this particular duo are endless!
- Fresh Fruit + Mixed Nuts
This one has been a staple of mine for years and with good reason. It’s perfectly portable, making it a great option for on-the-go nutritious snacking.
