Our second last pick for the healthy snack list is eggs. Although considered a meal, but when taken in decent quantity the same can turn into a very healthy snack.

You can eat a boiled egg or a scrambled egg between meals but it may even land you up in feeling so full that you may skip the next meal. Eggs are packed with proteins and contain cholesterol. You can even opt for an egg roll or the many other snacks prepared using eggs. Remember, although the second last but it’s still a very healthy option to snack your way to good health without compromising on taste. health 9
