Snacks for Better Energy

Fage Total 1% Greek Yogurt

Per 7-ounce container:
150 calories
2 g fat
23 g protein

Greek yogurt has more than double the protein of standard American-style yogurt. Make it a simple parfait by adding fruit, nuts, seeds, or granola.

Fiber One 0-2% Cottage Cheese with Fiber

Per ½ cup:
80 calories
2 g fat
10 g protein
5 g fiber

Cottage cheese is famous for its abundant supply of complete protein, but the 5 grams of fiber come from the addition of a natural plant compound called inulin. Top your curds with canned or fresh fruit for an ultra-sweet snack (or dessert!).

Sabra Sun Dried Tomato Hummus

Per 2 Tbsp:
70 calories
6 g fat
2 g protein
1 g fiber

If you don’t already keep hummus stocked in your fridge, add it to your shopping list right now. The creamy puree of chickpeas and sesame seeds carries a balanced mix of protein, fiber, and healthy fat, and it pairs well with just about anything you can dip.

Wholly Guacamole

Per 2 Tbsp:
60 calories
5 g fat
1 g protein
2 g fiber

With so many faux-guacamoles at the supermarket, it’s important to find one good brand and stick to it. So let me introduce you to Wholly, the supermarket’s most reliable purveyor of authentic, avocado-based guac. Oils, starches, and artificial colors are nowhere to be found in this package.

Eden Organic Pumpkin Seeds

Per ¼ cup:
200 calories
16 g fat
10 g protein
5 g fiber

Not only are they loaded with protein and fiber, but pumpkin seeds are also one of the world’s best sources of magnesium, a mineral that helps strengthen bones and improve blood circulation.
