Snacking healthy can be hard. When you don't have a lot of time to cook, it's easy to grab something fried like potato chips, sugary like candy, or heavily processed like fruit snacks. But even if you're short on time, you can stay fit and fueled with these 20 good and good-for-you treats. Check out the recipes and ideas below and bring health back into your midday pick-me-up.
