As someone who has lost 30 pounds and kept it off for nearly 10 years, people ask me all the time to reveal the secret behind my weight-loss success. Surprisingly enough, achieving and maintaining a slimmer figure is no big secret at all! An effective, prosperous weight-loss journey really comes down to what you eat, especially when hunger strikes out of the blue. Maybe you follow a healthy meal plan, but are you also mindful of what you eat in between meals? Those 3 PM afternoon slumps or mid-morning lows can trigger blood sugar crashes, as well as some intense carbohydrate cravings. That’s where go-to weight loss snacks will rescue you! Snacking smart will keep your energy levels up, blood sugar stable, and your tummy satisfied. That’s exactly why we’ve grouped together a foolproof list of 50 snacks that’ll save you from sabotaging your weight-loss goals. These clean and healthy recipes require little to no prep, and make smart snacking not only easy, but also downright delicious! From nachos to sorbet, these recipes cover a wide range of food bases certain to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Remember that moderation is key when it comes to shedding pounds and losing inches, so exercise portion control! Be sure to check out 7-Daily Menus: How I’ve Maintained My Ideal Weight for 10 Years . 1. Roasted Banana Smash This super easy recipe is sweet and versatile. For a delicious afternoon snack, spread Roasted Banana Smash on 1/2 whole-grain English muffin. 2. Tera’s Clean Protein Powder Use clean protein powder to make a delicious workout smoothie or afternoon snack. Tera’s Protein Powder also comes in a delicious dark chocolate flavor. When you’re short on time but still want to eat clean, try our Chocolate Meal Replacement Shake . 3. Frozen Red Grapes (10) When that late-night craving hits, stay out of the pantry and grab a handful of frozen red grapes instead. Did you know that frozen grapes have a texture similar to ice cream? 4. Blueberries Combine 1/4 cup blueberries and 1 teaspoon honey with 1/2 cup Greek yogurt for an ultra creamy snack. 5. Popcorn (2 cups) air popped with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and black pepper Enjoy two cups air-popped popcorn with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and a sprinkle of black pepper for a snack that hits the spot every time. Or, try Skinny Popcorn , which comes in individual bags with only 100 calories per serving. Now that’s delish! 6. Clean-Eating Deviled Eggs Everyone loves deviled eggs.

No-Bake Mini Apple Cheesecake Each of these delectable mini apple cheesecakes is under 200 calories, so snack away without any guilt! 9. Raisins (1/4 cup) and one apple Fruit is high in fiber, which makes it a great weight-loss snack. Try a tart apple with some unsweetened raisins for a filling sweet treat. 10. Almonds (12) lightly roasted Roast in 325 degree oven for 12 minutes. Add a sprinkle of sea salt and enjoy. Eat this crunchy treat, instead of store-bought almonds made with cottonseed oil and other unhealthy ingredients. 11. No-Bake Workout Bars An absolute favorite workout bar that has loads of superfoods and 14 grams of quality protein. After a workout or run it’s time to refuel our bodies, and this bar does just that. 12. RxBar Protein Bars These have 100% real ingredients.
