What Healthy 200-Calorie Snacks Look Like

Healthy snacks can be a great tool for keeping you on track throughout the day. They power you through that mid-morning (or afternoon) slump so you don’t end up starving and overeating at your next meal, and they give you energy to stay focused while you’re at work or on the go.

The trick to creating a great snack is in the power balance, combining produce and protein to ensure you stay satisfied until your next meal. The fiber in the produce provides a few hours of staying power, and the protein sends a message to your brain that you’re full and satisfied. Adding a little healthy fat doesn’t hurt either.
