Healthy Snacks Under 150 Calories

17 Easy, Healthy Snacks Under 150 Calories

Not all snacking is unhealthy. In fact, some research shows that regular snacking can promote faster, healthier weight loss [1]. Pro-snacking experts suggest eating every 3-4 hours to keep hunger at bay and minimize overeating (or unhealthy eating) at mealtime.

Here are eight easy, healthy snacks that will keep both your mouth and your waistline happy.

Homemade Snacks Under 150 Calories

If you’ve jumped on the meal prep train or at least decided to pack snacks ahead of time, grab one of these protein- and fiber-packed options!

1. Apple & Peanut Butter

Combine a high-fiber, water-rich apple with one tablespoon of protein-packed peanut butter to satisfy anytime hunger. This popular snack rings in at a tidy 150 calories

For reference, one tablespoon of peanut butter is about the size of a poker chip. Make sure you choose a natural peanut butter that only contains peanuts and salt. Avoid spreads with added sugar and those labeled “light” or “low-fat.”

2. Turkey Lettuce Wrap

Wrap two ounces of thin turkey and a thin slice of provolone cheese in a large romaine lettuce leaf for a quick, filling snack. This 130-calorie wrap is delicious and nutritious and may even help keep anxiety at bay due to turkey’s high tryptophan content.

Try to use low-sodium turkey slices to keep your salt intake in check. If you’d like an extra punch of flavor, add some mustard, horseradish, or pepper to spice up your wrap for no extra calories.

3. Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Craving a special sweet treat? Dip one cup of strawberries in 1 oz of melted dark chocolate. Dark chocolate provides lots of antioxidants. While this snack feels super special, it only costs about 135 calories. Just make sure your dark chocolate is at least 70% cacao.

4. Avocado on Whole Wheat Toast

Top a slice of 100% whole wheat toast with a quarter of an avocado for a creamy and crunchy 150-calorie snack. Avocados are a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and the fiber and fat content in this snack will keep you full for longer to help curb hunger pangs.

When choosing toast, make sure the loaf is “100% whole wheat,” not just “wheat.” Wheat breads that are not 100% whole wheat have a little more fiber than plain white bread.

5. Yogurt & Raspberries

A small container of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt pairs perfectly with a cup of fresh raspberries to make a refreshing, low-fat, high-fiber treat. This 150-calorie snack is a great alternative for when you’re craving ice cream. Greek yogurt is full of protein, and the fiber in raspberries helps regulate your blood sugar levels.

Choose plain yogurt to limit added sugars. If you don’t like the bitterness, add a bit of honey and/or cinnamon to soften the taste.

6. Hard Boiled Eggs and Carrot Sticks

Hard-boiled eggs are a classic “diet food” for good reason. They’re nutritional powerhouses and, when paired with carrot sticks, make a filling, high-protein, and low-calorie afternoon snack.

One egg plus 1 cup of carrot sticks or slices comes out to about 120 calories. Carrots are full of dietary fiber and vitamin A, while the egg provides plenty of protein plus fat-burning choline and essential B vitamins.

7. Peppers & Hummus

Keep yourself satisfied until your next meal by combining a cup of sliced bell peppers with 3 tbsp store-bought hummus. Sweet and crunchy bell peppers in a rainbow of colors provide lots of vitamins A and C, while hummus contains protein and anxiety-reducing tryptophan. Both snack components contain plenty of fiber.

8. Fruit & Nut Mix

There aren’t tons of options for healthy snacks under 100 calories, but a handful of 20-25 pistachios is one of them. Plus, removing the shells slows you down, so you can’t plow through them mindlessly. Pistachios are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, a variety of B vitamins, and vitamin E.

If you prefer a selection of fruit and nuts, a great combination for less than 150 calories is a mixture of 15 pistachios, 12 almonds, and a tablespoon of dried Tibetan goji berries. Almonds have similar health benefits to pistachios, and goji berries are said to be the most nutritionally dense fruit on earth. They are high in fiber, vitamin C, and many antioxidants, along with other vitamins and minerals.
