5 of the Best Snacks Every Healthy Adult Needs

Put the string cheese down. Here are five recipes that will curb your cravings.

The concept of snack time may remind you of peanut butter and apple slices, but you don't have to be a toddler to feel that afternoon craving. Adults feel hunger pains, too!

All of these are simple to make and will hold you over until dinnertime. Plus, they are way healthier than whatever is sitting in the vending machine at work. Check out our adult snack recommendations below!

5. Ants on a Log

While the classic nut butter, dried fruit, and chocolate version is delicious, we might enjoy the savory versions of this kids' snack even more.
