3. Apple slices & peanut butter
“Another idea is to always pair fruits with proteins or fats,” says Kirkpatrick. Easy snacks: Apple slices smeared with a little peanut butter, or pear slices with a small cube or two of cheese. “Nut butters are great but are highly caloric, so you don’t need much, just a little schmear,” says Dr. Peeke. You can also try carrot sticks dipped in a little hummus or guacamole, as an alternative. In terms of calories, one apple cut into slices with a little bit of peanut butter has about 200 calories, which is in the good-for-you snack range.
Popcorn has long been hailed the king of collations saines. “So long as it isn’t slobbered over with tons of butter and salt, it’s okay since it has a lot of fiber,” says Dr. Peeke. En réalité, research shows that popcorn may have more fiber and antioxidants than vegetables. As for portion size, you get a lot of bang for your buck with popcorn, as long as it’s air-popped. Three cups of air-popped popcorn only add up to 93 calories, which is ideal if you’re someone who likes to eat more than just one handful of a snack.
