Healthy snacking is an important aspect of a healthy nutrition plan. It helps keep blood sugar levels steady and helps us consume enough calories evenly throughout the day to keep our energy up and our glycogen tanks refueled for training.

Here is a list of simple, 200- to 220-calorie snack options you can try out this month. They all require very little preparation, and most can easily be stored in the fridge at home or at work, or even in a cooler in your car if you are often on the road.

  • 1 large apple with 1 tablespoon almond or other nut butter
  • ½ cup 2% cottage cheese with 2 cups chopped cantaloupe
  • 1 Chobani single-serve Greek yogurt with 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 10-12 rice crackers with 4tablespoons hummus
  • 3 Dole pitted dates with 1tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 rice cake with 1tablespoon nut butter
  • 8 rice crackers with 2 tablespoons goat cheese and 1.5 tablespoon red pepper jelly
  • 2 tablespoons hummus with 2.5 cups carrot sticks
  • 8 celery stalks with 2 tablespoons organic peanut butter
  • 1 slice of Ezekiel bread with 1 tablespoon raw nut butter and 1 tablespoon St. Dalfour fruit jam
