When suggesting snack options I often recommend combining macronutrients to help promote more satiety or fullness. Often time snacks foods high in sugar or processed carbohydrates leave us wanting more which can lead to overconsumption or food craving. Combine any two of the following foods for a satisfying snack.
Apples + almond or peanut butter ( Justin’s has a portable squeeze)
Dried fruit without added sugar (apple, apricots, raisins, blueberries, etc)+ low FODMAP nuts
Freeze dried fruit + low FODMAP nuts
Prosciutto + melon
Plantain chips + FODY salsa
Banana and almond or toasted unsweetened coconut flakes.
Frozen grapes, pineapple tidbits, or sliced bananas
Carrots+ peanut or almond butter
Celery + peanut or almond butter
