HEALTHY SNACKS & TREATS

     Love to snack? Good news, snacking is healthy! Eating around 200 calorie snacks throughout the day helps to stabilize blood sugar levels, speed up metabolism and decrease the chance of hunger. Snacking is only healthy if the snack itself is healthy (duh?) Below are some of my favourite, super healthy snacks! Some of the options below are treats rather than daily snack options, but they are healthier alternatives to most treats on the market!
 CHUNKY MONKEY SMOOTHIE
(see recipe in "Vegan Recipes")
 CASHEW COOKIES  

Almonds, cacao nibs, sliced apple with sprinkled cinnamon!
 Ruth's bars - all natural, GMO-free, no refined sugar, 
no artificial preservatives, colours or synthetic vitamins
180 calories, 5g protein 
 Spicy vegan hummus and veggie chips
 You can get these veggie chips at Winners! 

CARAMEL PECAN BAR 





 Hot chili flavoured seaweed
 Almond Yogurt

Apple & Peanut Butter sandwiches or just to dip
