MY TOP 10 FAVOURITE HEALTHY SNACKS

Having snacks between meals is a great way to prevent cravings for junk food or even just overeating at the next meal. I have recently been asked to give a friend a few of my favourite healthy snack ideas so she can share them in a presentation she is putting together.  I decided to make a blog post so I can share my top 10 favourite healthy snacks with everyone!


***USE ORGANIC INGREDIENTS***

1) GREEN SMOOTHIE- In a blender toss some berries, a banana (to make creamy) and some dark leafy greens such as spinach. Delish and Nutrish!

2) VEGGIES & HUMMUS- Chop up your favourite veggies and serve with 1/2 cup homemade hummus. 

3) FRUIT SALAD - Chop up your favourite fruits and mix them in a bowl together. Eat your rainbow :)

4) RICE CAKES & ALMOND BUTTER- Have a few rice cakes topped with almond butter and agave or sliced banana for sweetness.

5) TRAIL MIX- Get your favourite dried fruit (goji berries, cranberries, blueberries, raisins) and mix in a bowl with your favourite nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans) and if you are really feeling like a treat add in some vegan dark chocolate chips :)

6) CHIA SEED PUDDING- I have an amazing recipe on my blog under "desserts".

7) KALE CHIPS- I have a delicious recipe on my blog under "snacks".

8) APPLE & CARAMEL- Soak a handful of medjool dates for 15-20minutes. Put in a blender and blend until smooth (you may need to add a little water). Chop up your favourite apple and use the date caramel for dippin'!

9) PROTEIN SHAKE- There are many great vegan protein powder brands such as Vega and Sunwarrior. Buy some to have on hand when you have little time to make a healthy snack. Mix with water and enjoy.

10) OATMEAL- 1/2 cup oatmeal with 2 tbsp of raisins sprinkled with cinnamon.
