Snacking is a great way to keep your metabolism revved and provide the body with extra nutrients between meals. For folks trying to focus on healthy and quality foods, finding guilt-free snacks can be a challenge. Here are six recipes to nourish the body and avoid the guilt of empty calories.

  • Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bites are easy to prepare and eat on the go. With any snack, a small serving goes a long way and these bites pack a powerful punch.
  • Roasted chickpeas are full of nutrients and fiber and can be prepared to suit either savory or sweet tastes. Sesame garlic roasted chick peas or   crunchy honey almond chick peas are quick and will tide you over.
  • To boost your protein intake, try blueberry yogurt protein bites. Made with just four common ingredients and loaded with belly-friendly probiotics, this snack is perfect for a late night treat in place of ice cream.
  • If you need a snack with a salty crunch, beet chips are fool-proof and full of magnesium, vitamins and fiber.
  • Snacks are a great way to increase the amount of vegetables in your diet. Make veggies fun and pair them with a dip. Homemade roasted red pepper hummus and skinny veggie dip are healthier versions of popular dips without the added junk.
  • It doesn't get healthier than frozen grapes. Wash the grapes and then pop them in the freezer for a guilt-free alternative for when the candy cravings hit.
