Healthy Snacking Ideas to Try at Your Gainesville, FL, Apartment

For many of us, snacking is a normal part of our diet. Between breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we like to eat something to hold our hunger at bay and boost our energy levels. Those snacks, though, can sometimes add an abundance of calories to our diet without contributing many  nutrients. Snacking the right way means choosing foods that are higher in nutrients and lower in calories, so the snack will fill us up adequately without adding too many calories.

Here are some healthy snack ideas to consider:

    • 2 slices extra-lean ham with 2 tablespoons of whipped light cream cheese
    • 1 hard-boiled egg, sliced and sprinkled with salt, pepper, and paprika
    • 1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese with 1/4 cup blueberries
    • 2 stalks celery with 4 tablespoons of hummus
    • 1 cup sliced apples with 1 oz low-fat cheddar
    • 1 sliced tomato with 1 oz fresh mozzarella and sprinkled with salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    • 1 cup edamame, which can be enjoyed hot or cold

This is just a small sampling of the many healthy snacking ideas you can try. These snacks will offer you the energy boost you need in between meals without adding too many empty calories to your overall diet.

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
