15 Macro-Friendly Snack Ideas for Weight Loss

Macrostax provides all the tastiest, macro-friendly recipes to help you hit your macros .... including snacks! Check out our favorites below to help you on your weight loss journey. These snack ideas are loaded with high-fiber fruits and veggies, protein, and healthy fats to help fill you up and fuel you throughout your day, while also being low calorie!

1. Hummus and Veggie Snack Jars

The veggies and hummus combo is the ultimate weight loss snack! You get plenty of filling fiber as well as vitamins and minerals from a variety of vegetables: carrots, broccoli, bell peppers, celery, cauliflower, tomatoes, etc. Hummus, a much healthier alternative from most dips that is made from chickpeas, packs a protein boost as well, all for under 200 calories a serving! (1 Jar: 16g carbs / 4g protein / 6g fat)

2. High Protein Dreamsicle Smoothie

Protein powder is a Macrostaxer’s best friend. Most people don’t get enough protein in their diet, so blending it into delicious smoothies is the easiest way to enjoy it, especially when you’re on the go. This version uses banana, mango, and orange for a fun, tropical twist. (1 smoothie: 44g carbs / 27g protein / 1g fat)

3. Easy "Ranch" Dippers

This delicious snack is a healthy twist on the classic chips and dip favorite. We swapped the typical Ranch dressing for plain nonfat Greek yogurt (which packs a lot of protein and a lot less fat!) plus Ranch packet seasoning. Add your favorite dippers like nutrient-rich carrots, bell peppers, celery, broccoli, or even low-fat pretzels, and voila! (1 serving: 39g carbs / 15g protein / 0g fat)
