Little Tree's Favorite Healthy Snacks

I usually get a lot of questions on what my favorite snacks are, so I figured I would do a little round up on the blog to share with you guys. I kinda fell off the wagon with posting healthy recipes (been so busy!) but I plan on starting to share more recipes starting next week, so stay tuned for that! When sticking to a healthy snack I try to choose something that is healthy, but also satisfies a craving. Before starting my working regiment I used to be crazy about carbs. I still do love carbs, but now I moderate carbs into my diet as opposed to overloading on them. Hope this gives you guys a little more info on my daily eating habits, what are some healthy things you guys like to snack on?

Quest Protein Chips & Quest Bars- As you guys know I have always loved Quest bars, and just recently tried their protein chips. Being an avid chip lover I am excited to have a healthier chip option, and happy that they have so many flavors to choose from. The chips have 21g of protein in each bag with only 5g of carbs which is awesome. My favorite bags are sea salt, sour cream and onion and of course salt and vinegar. The only downside to these chips is that they leave your mouth a little dry- but just make sure you keep water on hand and you'll be good to go. As far as the quest bars go, you guys can read my previous post about my favorites. I've tried almost every flavor they have and I love them for an on-the-go snack or quick meal.

Bare Chips- {Apple & Coconut}- These yummy chips are a new find for me and I am hooked! They come in all different flavors but my favorites are their apple and coconut chips. They're baked, gluten free and 100% natural. They're a really good source of fiber too, which makes them even better for a healthier diet. These come in handy for me when I am having a specific chocolate craving. I love the chocolate bliss chips and even tried adding some of the chips to my yogurt and fruit parfaits. I really love anything that promotes a healthy lifestyle while still maintaining flavor, and these chips do just that. They're good for you, and taste delicious too!

Cucumber & Goat Cheese Crumbles- This combo is perfect for those days when all I want to do is snack! My mom started cutting up whole cucumbers for Ryan and I to snack on and we just got hooked. We drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top and crumble feta and it's the perfect healthy combo that keeps our hungry tummies at bay while we wait to eat our main meal. We also use this as our version of a salad since we're both not crazy about tomatoes. Two of a kind, right? ;)

Pasta Chips- I've talked about pasta chips in the past, and they are still one of my favorite go-to snacks. I made a spinach and cilantro dip that paired perfectly with them last year. (read that here) These are delicious chips that are made with italian herbs and are inspired by italian dishes. They have everything from alfredo to garlic olive oil, and my personal favorite sea salt. It really tastes like you're eating a delicious plate of pasta with homemade sauce! They have 60% less fat than regular chips and are really good to add to a cheese platter or to any homemade dip.

Yogurt & Granola- I used to hate yogurt and now it's one of my daily snacks. Although I can't really eat it plain, I love finding good granola to mix in with it. I found my favorite granola and I have been finding it in select grocery stores in my area and literally buying about 7 bags at a time!My favorite yogurt is Chobani (obviously it's greek haha) and my favorite granola is . It has dark chocolate chunks in it and cinammon with oats.
