Who is in a bind when it comes to picking out healthy snacks? I used to do the same snacks everyday, but now that I've been eating healthy for quite a while I have come up with tons of ideas. Here are a few of my faves to have at home or pack on the go
- Dales bars- very nutritionally sound protein bars. They are high in protein, low in carbs, gluten free, raw, vegan, and DELICIOUS. I have one a day! My favorite flavors are peanut butter fudge, mint chocolate chip, graham cracker, and vanilla cashew! BUY HERE
- Green Smoothies: there are so many varieties you can make. They are so fast to make and drink on the go! Green smoothies are my favorite, because they can be whatever you want them to. My favorites are these. Here's another.
-Hummus and veggies: I love packing veggies and hummus in my purse when I am running around. A cup of veggies (carrots,cucumber, tomato, beets, califlour, broccoli, bell pepper, etc) always goes well with some delicious hummus. You can make your own, or go to a health food store and stock up on your favorite organic hummus. Make this one, or this one at home.
- Fruit with chia seeds: Chia seeds are great to throw in to your diet. They are packed with nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. Soak your chia seeds in water then you can top them on your favorite fresh organic fruit! My favorites right now are a combo of plums, peaches, nectarine, and mango.
-Kale chips: I have been obsessed with kale chips lately. I have made them at home, but have also tried these and these and have been completely blown away by how tasty they are! These are filled with fiber and nutrients so stock up!
- Nut butter and fruit: sometimes keeping it quick and simple is the way to go. I love grabbing an apple or banana and spreading a nut butter on it. Lately I've been trying new kinds of nut butters, and my favorites are walnut, cashew, and pecan.
-Hard boiled eggs: if you hard boil some free range organic eggs and keep them in your fridge, they can be the perfect grab-and-go along with nuts or a piece of fruit!
