Avocado toast

Mash up half an avocado, which gives you your dose of good fats, slather on whole grain toast, and drizzle over a squeeze of lemon— even honey, if you’re hankering for something sweet.

Smoothies

Whip up a batch with yogurt and your favorite fruit! Remember to avoid papaya and pineapple.

Hummus, veggie sticks, and pita bread

Chop some of your favorite veggies, unwrap some pita bread and enjoy.

Baked potato with yogurt and chives

The creamy, rich mix of the potato with yogurt in place of sour cream will satisfy any carb cravings.

Almonds

Almonds are a great choice because they are high in minerals – just a handful will help take the edge off your hunger.

Apple slices

These really fill the need for something sweet, juicy, and crisp.

Crackers

These are great to keep nausea at bay. Try them with hummus or peanut butter.

Popcorn

Buy corn and pop it at home to save on calories. Sprinkle salt and pepper and munch away!

Yogurt

The probiotics in yogurt will keep your immune system strong. Add chopped fresh fruit to make a yummy snack.

Sorbet

Instead of ice creams that are laden with fat; have a refreshing fruit-flavored sorbet with fresh fruit as toppings.

Dried fruits

Get a lightly salted or totally unsalted mix of dried fruits and nuts — they pack a heart-healthy punch and will keep you feeling fuller and longer than a carb-heavy snack.
