Healthy Snacks for College Students on the Run

 

 

1) Celery and peanut butter.

Celery and peanut better are choice healthy snacks for college students — they are the perfect balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat that will satisfy any craving. Substitute almond butter or sun butter for an even healthier alternative.

2) Fresh fruit.

Super easy snack for college students — just grab a banana or apple on your way out the door! The fiber found in most fruits will fill you up between classes. If you prefer your fruit prepared a certain way like chopped pineapple or diced mango, do that the night before to simplify your morning routine.

3) Greek yogurt.

A great source of protein, Greek yogurt is sure to quell your appetite. The Chobani brand is everyone’s favorite (check out their new apple cinnamon and passion fruit flavors) but you can also get snack packs of cheaper Greek yogurt at your local grocery store.

4) Nuts.

Look for almonds, cashews, walnuts, or pistachios in particular. Snacking on a handful of nuts can help lower your cholesterol level and provide you with some healthy fatty acids. Feel free to mix together a few varieties and throw in some dried fruit or granola for a homemade trail mix.

5) Edamame.

Also known as soybeans, edamame are packed with antioxidants and protein. Sprinkle on some sea salt and enjoy! You can also buy them shelled if you’re looking for an even more convenient bite.
