Snacking is an important part of any healthy diet plan, but it's important to bypass those loaded with calories, fat and sugar, and opt for high fiber snacks to keep you satiated.

According to The National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine, women under 50 years of age should aim for 25 grams of fiber per day, but if you're just starting to incorporate more fiber into your diet, start slowly. Here are some high fiber snacks to include in your healthy diet plan.

Healthy Snack #1: Apples with Almond Butter

The always-filling apple has around 3 grams of fiber on its own, making it one of our favorite healthy snacks. Slice up the fruit and spread on 1 tablespoon of almond butter to add anywhere from 1-2 additional grams of fiber, depending on the brand. Don't peel the apple; the skin contains vitamins and fiber.

Healthy Snack #2: Popcorn

High fiber snacks like popcorn are great, as long as you're not purchasing it from a movie theater concession stand. One ounce of air-popped white popcorn has over 4 grams of fiber and around 100 calories. Just make sure that you don't add salt or butter in order to keep it a low-fat snack.

Healthy Snack #3: Carrots

In general, raw vegetables are smart for any healthy diet plan, but they're not always convenient for on-the-go snacking. Luckily, carrot sticks are portable healthy snacks. One medium-sized raw carrot or 3 ounces of baby carrots both offer nearly 2 grams of fiber.

Healthy Snack #4: Larabars

While some energy bars may have more fiber, Larabars are a terrific choice because they're made of raw ingredients. The come in a variety of flavors, including mouthwatering Cherry Pie, which delivers 4 grams of fiber without all of the added sugar and salt that some other bars contain.
