Delicious and healthy snacks can help you add variety to your regular rotation of options to keep food fun. I’d like to share two of my favorite snacks with you — Roasted Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus and FAGE Total Split Cups. The hummus recipe is savory and easy to master, and the yogurt is a little something sweet and easy to grab on the go!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a snacker. Whether I’m working at home (more like ESPECIALLY if I’m working at home!) or if I’m in an office for a client, I always try to have healthy snack options on hand.
For me, snacking can be a grab-and-go option, like a little bag of almonds or dried fruit. Sometimes it can be a little more luxurious and decadent (while still being healthy). FAGE Total Split Cups yogurt is a sweeter something I reach for.
FAGE Total Split Cups are made from all-natural Greek strained yogurt and include fruit toppings to mix in. I love that there are different options available when it comes to fat content. I like the FAGE Total 2% variety, and of course all the available fruit flavors, too! Cherry is my favorite and measures in at 120 calories for a serving.
The Split Cups are also great for breakfast because they pack a protein punch to keep you going (there is more protein than sugar in the 2% varieties — 12 grams). I love them for snacks…and for dessert, too!
Not only are these cups protein rich, but they’re rich and creamy, too.
If you’re in an office with a fridge, FAGE Total Split Cups are perfect to take along as a mid-day snack. You can pack them in your kids’ lunch bags, or indulge in them after your afternoon workout. They’re perfect to help you maintain your healthy lifestyle goals.
I hope you’ll check out the FAGE Total Split Cups yogurt in your favorite fruit option. Find a store near you that carries them.
I love to make snack options myself, too, because I tend to get a bit of the grab-and-go burnout, even when I’m not going anywhere. It’s not difficult to make healthy snacks on your own, and it doesn’t have to be time consuming. Enter roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato hummus!
roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato hummus
This hummus is a tasty and easy-to-make snack option. It’s perfect to keep your options flavorful and healthy.
Hummus is one of my favorite savory snack options, whether it’s during the day, or something that I put out when people are over. The combination of roasted garlic (don’t worry — roasting the garlic mellows out the flavor) and sun-dried tomatoes in this recipe is divine.
