Some popular healthy snacks include whole wheat English muffins with peanut butter, nut mixes, light microwave popcorn and quesadillas. These foods tend to be high in vitamins and minerals and low in saturated fat.
An English muffin with peanut butter contains about 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Nut mixes normally contain beneficial monounsaturated fats and healthful phytochemicals, such as phytosterols and lignans. Light popcorn is a crunchy alternative to potato chips and other high-fat fried snacks. Healthy quesadillas can include nutritious ingredients such as beans and avocados; whole wheat tortillas and reduced-fat cheese further increase the nutritional value.
