Scrumptious Snacks To Eat While On The Mediterranean Diet

Kalamata Olives

The briney flavor of these kalamata olives plays well against their natural oils. 

Pita and Hummus

Spread a few tablespoons of hummus spread on a piece of whole-wheat pita bread for a satisfying snack.

Detox Vegan Smoothie

Smoothies make excellent snacks, because you can control the ingredients you put into them.

Crackers and Healthy Tuna Salad

Enjoy your healthy tuna salad atop whole-wheat crackers for a midday treat.

Nuts and Dried Fruit

Mix your favorite nuts with dried cherries or mixed berries for extra inflammation-fighting antioxidants.

Greek Yogurt with Fruit

Today, most Greek yogurt doesn’t actually hail from Greece. However, low-fat Greek yogurt is a protein-rich snack. 

Dates or Figs

Dates and figs grow well in the Mediterranean region, making them a key part of the Mediterranean diet. 

Fruit Slices with Nut Butter

Almond butter or cashew butter are great options that contain heart-healthy fats.

Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding

Simply soak chia seeds overnight in pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and dairy or almond milk.

Tomato with Feta Cheese

Nothing beats the flavor of fresh tomatoes. When you’re feeling hungry, make a simple tomato salad. 

Pumpkin Seed Salsa

Using pumpkin seeds as a base for a salsa gives you a serving of this underappreciated superfood. 

Homemade Granola Bars

Supermarket granola bars are often laden with added sugars and preservatives.
