If you’re giving up on snacks in order to cut calories, you are wrong -to lose weight, snacks are the constitutional part of the process. Having snacks is the chance to fuel your organism between meals. Of course, all you have to do is choosing the healthy nutritious snacks.

Here is the list of 8 nutritionist-approved choices:

1. Raspberries and honey with Greek yogurt

This trio with its sweet, creamy taste gives you the needed combination of fiber, protein and healthy fats. Plus, the vitamin C from the raspberries increases the body’s ability for burning fats. Combine one cup of raspberries, a ½ tbsp. of honey and one container of Greek yogurt.

2. Grapes and walnuts

A handful of walnuts and a cup of grapes together are a powerful combination of natural sugars, healthy fats, fiber and protein. All of this is in the function of making more longstanding energy.

3. Edamame

One-third of your daily protein and fiber needs makes one cup of edamame. Suck them right from the shells, to make them last longer.

4. Banana and peanut butter

Eat a banana with spread peanut butter on it. The carbohydrates will give you an energy spike and quick mood, while the proteins will keep your energy going for a long time. One study in the British Journal of Nutrition shows that if you eat peanut butter at a start of your day you won’t have big appetite during the day.

5. Oatmeal and blueberries

Full of fiber, oats are not just a breakfast served food, but you can eat them whenever you like. They help in regulating blood sugar levels. Blueberries on the other hand provide you with vitamin C and add some sweetness without any harmful sugar. Try a cup of soaked oatmeal, topped with a handful of blueberries.

6. Apple with cheese

Consuming one apple daily could prevent weight gain. One study shows that cheese might too. Combine an apple slices with sharp cheddar cheese and enjoy the perfect salty and sweet mix.

7. Soynuts and cheerios

Maybe this is not the most usual pairing, but you should definitely try it. Mix 100 gr. of salted, roasted, soynuts with 200 gr. of Multigrain Cheerios, and you’ll be enamored. The salty and sweet combo along with protein and fiber makes this a scrumptious snack.

8. Pear slices and almond butter

For the perfect protein and carb combination pair a pear with some almond butter. Boost its health properties with a pinch of cinnamon.
