Part of Beating Sugar Addiction For Dummies Cheat Sheet

If you’re in a hurry, it can be difficult to come up with a healthy snack instead of one that’s loaded with sugar and chemicals. Here’s a list of ten healthy snacks that you don’t have to cook, so that you can grab, gobble, and go:

  • Can of low-sodium tuna in water

  • Celery boat filled with peanut butter or chicken salad

  • Coconut milk (unsweetened) with a scoop of whey protein

  • Cucumbers or bell peppers with salsa

  • Cup of cottage cheese or Greek yogurt

  • Half an apple topped with (real) peanut butter, almond butter, or cheese

  • Handful of nuts

  • Hard-boiled egg

  • Lettuce roll stuffed with sliced turkey breast

  • Raw veggie plate and hummus

Keep some of these snacks prepped in your refrigerator or pantry so they’re ready to grab when it’s snack time. You can also portion some out in glass storage containers to take with you to work or when you’re on the run.
