No offense to supermarket snacks, but these recipes produce seriously amazing snack options. Make 'em once, and you'll be prepared for days when between-meal hunger hits…

Snackable Slaw

We could probably eat this slaw every day and never get sick of it. It's the perfect blend of protein and veggies, sweet and savory, crunchy and... er, not crunchy. The fact that it's crazy easy to make is also terrific. Keep it around always!

Veggies for Days

Mostly Roasted Veggie Platter 1/6 of recipe: 70 calories, <0.5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 106mg sodium, 15g carbs, 7g fiber, 6.5 sugars, 3.5g protein

If you find plain vegetables a little ho-hum, this platter is for you. Oven-roasted veggies have the most amazing flavor, and jicama and sugar snap peas ROCK. Wanna really take things over the top? Make a batch of this 5-minute Everything Bagel Dip to go with it

Super-Sized Fruit Salad

Sassy Melon Salad 1/4 of recipe (about 1 1/3 cups): 91 calories, <0.5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 30mg sodium, 22g carbs, 2g fiber, 17g sugars, 2.5g protein

This is NOT your average fruit salad. The vanilla-watermelon dressing is stellar, with just a hint of lime. And diced cucumber supersizes the portions and blends in seamlessly. Easy, delicious, and all-around amazing...

Soup for Snacking

Slow-Cooker Chunky Vegetable Soup 1/8 of recipe (about 1 1/4 cups): 88 calories, <0.5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 664mg sodium, 19.5g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 8g sugars, 2.5g protein

NEWSFLASH: Soup is a great snack, especially when it's packed with fiber and flavor, like this veggie-friendly selection. Set up your slow cooker with these ingredients, let time do its thing, and you'll have a big pot of super-nutritious soup to loop back to for days.

Protein-Packed Snack

Veggie-Loaded Tangy Tuna Salad 1/4 of recipe (about 3/4 cup): 150 calories, 2.5g total fat (<0.5g sat. fat), 676mg sodium, 13g carbs, 2g fiber, 7g sugars, 18g protein

This is our go-to tuna salad, but it’s SO not boring. (Perish the thought!) Honey mustard and sweet relish bring flavor to the foreground, and tons of tasty veggies make this seriously satisfying. Scoop it up with whole-grain crackers, load it onto a rice cake, or just dig in with a spoon. Not into tuna? Try my Sweet 'n Chunky Chicken Salad.

The Snack That Eats Like Dessert

Bestest Baked Apples 1/4 of recipe (1 apple): 104 calories, <0.5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 10mg sodium, 27g carbs, 4g fiber, 21g sugars, 0.5g protein

Sometimes, you want a sweet snack. If a plain apple isn't decadent enough for your tastes, BAKE IT. Better yet, bake FOUR, and you'll have goodies for days! These treats are good hot, warm, or cold, so they taste great right out of the oven or right out of the fridge.

And of Course… Chocolate

Triple Chocolate Pancake Poppers 1/6 of recipe (4 poppers): 142 calories, 4g total fat (1.5g sat. fat), 356mg sodium, 20g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 5g sugars, 6g protein

Because CHOCOLATE. But wait… These mini muffins also have protein in them! If you need something dessert-y but also wanna keep the sugar low, a batch of these bites are the perfect snack to have around.

Chew on this:

FYI: Tomorrow, April 16th, is DAY OF THE MUSHROOM. (We added the capital letters for effect.) Give mushrooms the respect they deserve by making this Mushroom Ricotta Toast.

What are your friends snacking on? Something boring? Better help 'em out…
