Question@2x Hi Lisa,

I'm a big snacker, and I’m looking for new ideas that are super simple but satisfying. What are your favorite easy snacks to throw together?

Answer@2x Hi SAiJ,

You’ve come to the right place… I’ve got lots of snack hacks up my sleeve! Here are a handful of 2-ingredient favorites I go back to time and again. You might even have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now!

Turkey + Pickles = Turkey Rollups

Entire recipe: 30 calories, <0.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 395mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 6g protein

I LOVE PICKLES. But I also love a snack with protein. Here's my trick: Wrap a dill pickle spear in 2 slices (about 1 oz.) low-sodium skinless turkey breast. I love Boar’s Head turkey, but feel free to use whatever deli meat you have. Sometimes, I’ll add a little mustard for extra zing. And if you’re watching your sodium, you can use cucumber instead of pickles.

Egg Substitute + Cheese = Egg Mug

Entire recipe: 125 calories, 1.5g total fat (1g sat fat), 547mg sodium, 3.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 20g protein

I talk about egg mugs a lot, but how can I not? They rock! If you’re sensing a theme, it’s that I love protein-based snacks. And a hot mini meal like this is really satisfying. Just spray a large microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray, add 3/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (or egg whites), and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese, and nuke for another minute, until set. Feel free to mix things up by adding veggies and using whatever cheese is in your fridge.

Apple + Powdered PB = PB-Drizzled Apples

Entire recipe: 175 calories, 2.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 115mg sodium, 32.5g carbs, 6.5g fiber, 22g sugars, 9g protein

Combining apples with peanut butter is a no brainer, but here’s a fun twist! Core and slice an apple (I like Fujis best), and lay the slices on a plate. In a small bowl, mix 3 tbsp. powdered peanut butter (like PB Fit) with 3 tbsp. water. Then drizzle the PB sauce over your apple slices -- yum! P.S. In the recipe pictured, I added chocolate chips and peanuts… It’s like dessert nachos!

Grapes + Yogurt = 2-Ingredient Fro-Yo Grapesicles

Entire recipe: 74 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 11mg sodium, 16.5g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 14.5g sugars, 3g protein

Here’s another tasty spin on ordinary fruit. First, grab 2 tbsp. fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup grapes. Pop each grape on a toothpick, and coat it with yogurt. Freeze for about an hour, or until solid. Yum! Click here for the original Fro-Yo Grapesicles recipe. And feel free to experiment with different fruits and yogurt flavors!
