• Peanut butter with fruit or veggies: “Peanut butter makes a great dip. You can dip celery, baby carrots, sliced apple — even mango,” says Giancoli. However, it’s high in calories, so watch your portions.
• Hummus with whole-wheat crackers: “Hummus is another great dip. Pair it with whole-wheat crackers or whole-wheat pitas,” says Giancoli.
• Fruit: OK, this isn’t rocket science. Fruit is fast and easy to grab on the go. And if you’re stuck at your computer, Giancoli suggests placing a bowl of grapes nearby. “It takes time to eat grapes, and if you’re the type who likes to eat as you work, this is a healthy option.”
• Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, pistachios — these are all good, filling, snack options. But just like peanut butter, you need to watch your portion size. Giancoli suggests looking for individual serving bags.
• Popcorn: “Popcorn is a great college snack. Not only is it a whole grain, but visually, it looks like a lot of food,” says Giancoli. Just try to skip the bags loaded with salt and butter.
