Many experts say to eat three square meals a day and at least two snacks. Some believe the best way to eat is to nosh on six small meals a day.

When they’re talking snacks, though, they’re not talking about chips and dip or candy bars. Those types of treats have their place, but most of the time it’s best to stick to healthy snacks. Healthy snacks don’t have to be dull, though! With a little planning, healthy snacks can be tasty little treats all on their own.

Veggies With Hummus

Hummus can be paired with just about anything. You can make your own or you can buy some ready-made at the store. Most grocery stores have a wide variety to pair with your favorite veggies. Why eat your vegetables plain when you can dip them in some healthy hummus for an extra protein kick? Hummus gets its protein from the chickpeas it’s made from.
