Feeling peckish? Put down the candy and pick up these healthy items.
With the number of fast food options and milk-and-sugar loaded beverages, it’s often hard to be healthy on the go. Unless you’re uber prepared and have your own snack pack of hummus and veggies, you may be tempted to grab something unhealthy, and ultimately, bad for you. If you need some healthy snack inspiration, look no further than this list!
Apples and peanut butter – A sliced apple paired with a scoop of peanut butter (preferably one with no added salt, sugar, or oils) is tasty and will keep you full throughout the day.
Chips and dip – Believe it or not, but this can be a healthy choice! Opt for salt-free chips and a dip, such as hummus or homemade guacamole.
Granola bars – Be careful which granola you pick up as it could have hidden sugar and dairy. If you don’t have time to make your own, always look at the ingredients on store-bought bars.
Falafel – Healthy, filling, and relatively easy to make! Falafels are good choices to fill you up while snacking.
Hummus and vegetables – What can we say? It’s a match made in heaven!
Tomato and basil soup – If you make a big batch of this soup, it’ll see you through the week.
Salt and pepper chickpeas – Roast chickpeas with a sprinkle of salt and pepper to make a healthy alternative to chips.
Green smoothie – Pile in your favorite green vegetables, a few pieces of fruit, and top it up with a non-dairy milk for a healthy drink to sip on.
Nuts – A handful of almonds, cashews, and Brazil nuts are a healthy snack that fills you up quickly!
Now you know what makes a great alternative than reaching for those candy bars!
