7 Healthy Sweet and Salty Snack Combos

Indulge in your fave flavor combo the no-guilt way.

Rejoice! You can indulge in your fave flavor combination without feeling guilty. Dig into these 7 healthy sweet and salty snack combos.

Whether you’re working to lose weight or to maintain your ideal weight, snacks are oh-so-important. Nutritious, clean-eating (non- or minimally processed) snacks keep your body fueled between meals so you don’t experience the blood sugar drops that lead to cravings for unhealthy snacks.

As with all snacks, no matter how healthy, it’s essential to stick to proper portion control. Always look at the recommended portion size included with the recipe, and never, ever eat right out of the storage bag or container. Measure your portion onto a smaller plate or into a single-serve container so you’re not tempted to accidentally overeat.
