Having fruit and nuts for a snack is so simple, and is a great go-to snack. It’s so easy to grab a piece of fruit and a handful of nuts as a healthy snack, even if you’re busy! What’s also so great about this snack, is that with it you’ll be getting good whole carbs, good protein and some healthy fats too (all the 3 food groups).
There are so many great combinations that you can make with just fruit and nuts. As a rough guideline, I like to stick to a fruit and nut snack of 200 calories – this is easy to work out quickly, and will provide a good amount of calories for a snack. Using this guideline, I’ll have roughly 100 calories of fruit as well as 100 calories of nuts.
Here are some combinations that I love, with some basic calorie guidelines for you to follow. Here each portion of fruit is 100 calories, and each portion of nuts is also 100 calories.
Each fruit and nut combination listed here is roughly 200 calories:
1 banana (medium) + 8 raw walnuts
1 banana (medium) + 14 raw almonds
1 sliced banana (medium) + 1 Tablespoon unsweetened peanut butter
1 and 1/2 medium apples + 1 Tablespoon unsweetened almond butter
1 and 1/2 medium apples + 3 raw Brazil nuts
Fresh blueberries (1 and 1/3 cup) + 10 raw cashew nuts
2 clementines + 14 raw almonds
1 and 1/2 oranges + 14 raw almonds
Strawberries (2 cups sliced) + 10 raw pecan nuts
Strawberries (2 cups sliced) + 25 raw pistachio nuts
roughly 200 calories per fruit and nut combo
