Healthy Snacks

Many people ask what healthy snacks they should eat on a day to day basis. You’re in luck because there are a million different combinations of healthy snacks that you can try. Today, I’ll be sharing 10 of my favorite healthy snacks…in no particular order!Hummus620-10.jpg

Hummus

Made from chickpeas, hummus provides a savory flavor and an extra protein punch into your day. My favorite brand is Athenos. I enjoy the roasted red pepper flavor.

Celery and Carrots

This dynamic duo can give you a refreshing crunch any time of the day. Packed with vitamins and water, these veggies will help you stay hydrated and alert. Try them with 2 tablespoons of hummus for the perfect snack on the go.

PB & Chocolate Protein Shake

This shake recipe is easy to mix up and perfect for packing when you’re in a rush. Just add 1 scoop of your favorite chocolate protein powder, 1 banana, 2 tbs of peanut butter or use PB2, and enough almond milk to get the consistency you like. If you don’t like adding ice but you want a cold drink, peel and freeze your banana the night before!

Nuts

For a quick snack, grab 1 serving of your favorite nuts. To add flavor, try roasting your nuts with your favorite seasonings, or try this recipe!

Sweet Potato Fries

I love french fries, but they’re usually full of grease/fat and salt. A healthy alternative is to bake your own at home. Sweet potatoes pack a ton of flavor and nutrients that will satisfy your hunger. Bake your fries with a small amount of oil and a pinch of salt.

Air Popped Popcorn

Try this simple snack plain or with fun seasonings as a healthy alternative to traditional popcorn.

Sushi/Veggie Roll

I’m a sushi lover for sure, and having a couple of veggie rolls at snack time is always satisfying. I add rice, cucumber, carrots, green onion, and avocado to my rolls. Try them alone or with a low sodium sauce!

Fruit

Fruit can be the perfect snack. The natural sugars fuel your body while the vitamins keep you healthy and feeling great. Keep it at one serving and add a tablespoon of nut butter for some extra protein.

Avocado Toast

This snack has become very popular over the past year! Toast a slice of whole grain bread, spread 1/4-1/2 of an avocado on the toast. Spruce it up with sprouts, red pepper flakes, and tomato slices. Adding avocado to your diet will provide you with some healthy fats to support your active body.

Nicecream

This vegan ice cream substitute hits the spot every time for me! The base is frozen bananas, then you can add any other flavors you like to the blender. A personal favorite of mine is 2 cups of frozen pineapple, 1/2 frozen banana, and 2 tablespoons of almond milk. Try it out!
