Healthy snacks can help you stave off extreme hunger (which can causing overeating when you finally do eat) in between meals.

The Top 15 Healthy Snack Options

Below are some of the top healthy snack options you can use when true hunger strikes. And don’t forget to practice eating slowly even when snacking!

#1 Banana

Full of fiber and potassium, bananas are one of the more dense, filling fruits. They make a great snack alone, paired with some peanut butter, or as the base of a smoothie!

#2 Carrots and Hummus

You can’t go wrong with hummus. And carrots are the perfect crunchy addition. Plus, they’re full of healthy beta carotene that is good for your eyes and skin health. Combine that with the protein and fiber in the hummus (from chickpeas) and you have a great snack.

#3 Shelled Edamame

Edamame (soy beans) are packed with protein and really satisfying. You can buy them fresh or frozen and shelled so they are easy to grab-n-go. These are also great roasted or in salads.

#4 Overnight Oats

A cup of oats gives you a healthy dose of manganese — 70% of your daily requirement — plus magnesium and vitamin B1. And the soluble fiber in oats keeps you full and regulates blood sugar, helping you feel satisfied for a longer period of time.

Overnight oats are a great option for having something healthy to grab and eat on-the-go if needed. Simply combine oats with some milk, chopped up fruit, nuts or seeds, dried fruit, cinnamon and a little sweetener, if desired, stir together in a mason jar, and let sit overnight. In the morning, you can reheat and eat or enjoy cold.

#5 Green Smoothie

Blend up some spinach, banana, and a frozen fruit like blueberries or peaches. For a little more substance, you can add some peanut or almond butter. This makes for a great quick snack or breakfast. Plus, it helps you get in your greens!

#6 Air-popped Popcorn

Use an air popping machine to make yourself some healthy popcorn at one without the added oils that come in store-bought popcorn. Then you can add your own spices to enjoy.

#7 Frozen Grapes

If you like popsicles, these are a great alternative. Pop some grapes in the freezer for a few hours, then take them back out for a tasty, healthy frozen treat!

It’s naturally sweet, refreshing, and full of vitamins. Watermelon is great because it fills you up quickly (due to the high water content) with few calories.

#9 Homemade Trail Mix

Buy salt-free, oil-free, sugar free versions of your favorite nuts and dried fruits, and combine them for a wholesome snack.

#10 Berries and Yogurt

Just make sure the yogurt contains no added sugar. This might be harder to find, but most health food stores will have a brand that offers it. Beware of the popular commercial yogurt brands; they are packed with sugar galore!

Add some berries, such as blueberries or raspberries, into your yogurt for a tasty treat that is filling and satisfying, plus it’ll be full of probiotics (from the yogurt) and antioxidants (from the berries).

#11 Avocado Toast

The combination of wholesome healthy fat with whole grains is great here. Use whole wheat (preferably sprouted) or gluten free whole grain bread. Toast it and spread mashed avocado on toast. Sprinkle with a little pepper or salt and enjoy!

In case you’ve forgotten the components, you just rinse and chop celery into about 2-inch slices, add a layer of peanut butter (or other nut or seed butter) on the side that curves in, then top with a few raisins.
