We’re well into the new year, and you’re trying to keep to your resolutions. You’re likely in the groove with cooking healthy for mealtime, but what happens when you’re hankering for a snack? These easy and healthy snack ideas can help you treat your body right even when you’re craving an afternoon snack.

Mango Salad

Dice up a mango. Toss it in a bowl with a small handful of toasted coconut, some lime juice, and a small pinch of salt.

Kale Chips

De-stem one bunch of kale and tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces. Toss them with one tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of paprika, and a pinch of salt. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray and bake the kale chips at 350 until crispy (12 to 15 minutes).

Banana Dippers

Slice a banana into one-inch sections. Spread a little peanut butter on the end of each piece and dip them into some granola or chopped nuts. You can also freeze for a chilly treat.

Homemade Hummus

In a food processor, combine a 15-ounce can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained) with a clove of garlic, ¼ cup of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon of ground cumin. If you want to add even more flavor, you can add in a couple tablespoons of tahini or a pinch of paprika. Transfer your hummus to a bowl and slice up bell peppers and carrots to dip.
