Sometimes you need to shake up your snack routine! We've got easy and amazing recipes for every craving...

Crisp 'n Fresh

Forget basic apple wedges and celery sticks -- here's a slew of fruit and veggie snacks that are far from snoozy...

Scoopable Chinese Chicken Salad (1/5th of recipe, 1 1/2 cups): 195 calories, 3g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 595mg sodium, 21g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 12.5g sugars, 22.5g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

This recipe is a longtime HG favorite. The fiber from the broccoli slaw + the protein in the chicken = super satisfaction! Factor in sweet 'n juicy orange segments and yummy sesame-ginger dressing, and you've got one heck of a snack. Make a batch on Sunday night, and you'll have smart snacks straight through Friday.

Junk-Food Swaps

When you need to outsmart your cravings for pizza, fast food, and fatty appetizers, these snacks have got your back. Crispy fries, stuffed mushrooms... All healthy and low in calories!

Hot 'n Hearty

From satisfying soups to protein-packed peppers, these savory snacks will obliterate your hunger...
