Healthy Snacks Under 150 Calories

If you have not already guessed, I love snacking, particularly on sweet snacks. I love snacking between my main meals and snacking on sweet snacks to curb my mid afternoon sweet cravings. Yes, snacking on fresh fruit is good but sometimes I just want that something extra.

But snacking can be quite dangerous, especially when I grab store bought muesli bars, protein balls or biscuits. This is mainly because these store-bought snacks are calorie laddened and can be up to 300-400 calories per serving which is the same amount of calories as main meals for some of us. Whilst store bought snacks are easy to grab, they also contain unnecessary amount of sugar, additives and presevatives

So, I would like to share with you some of my go-to snack options that are 150 calories or under per serve. Most of these snacks are homemade, but there are also simpler snacks such as peanut butter with crackers, handful of nuts, etc. I have also included some snacks that I have before bed if I am having the munchies. I hope these snack options will spice up your eating options during the day πŸ™‚
