I’m a snacker and lets face it, snacking can make or break your healthy eating habits if you’re not careful. Many of the store bought pre-made snacks are full of ingredients and preservatives you can’t even pronounce.
Here’s a list of clean eating snacks that are satisfying with all natural ingredients, no refined sugar and no preservatives. And, they won’t sabotage your healthy eating habits.
Yogurt and berries. One of my favorite snacks is plain yogurt with 1 scoop Skoop B-Strong and strawberries or blueberries. Sprinkle with ground flax for a nutritious boost.
Crustless apple pie. Cut up an apple into a small bowl, sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Microwave for 2-3 minutes. Top with yogurt. You won’t even miss the crust.
Kale chips. Drizzle kale with olive oil, sea salt and [optional] paprika. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Oatmeal Snack – Overnight oats aren’t just for breakfast. Try this slightly smaller snack size for a healthy afternoon treat, Double Chocolate Oatmeal Snack.
Green smoothie. Blend your favorite fruit, yogurt, almond milk, protein powder and ice for a refreshing and delicious snack. I enjoy this particularly after hot yoga. In honor of the coming arrival of spring, try this Flavors of Spring Green Smoothie.
Nut butter apple slices. Slice up an apple into thin pieces then spread a little bit of nut butter over each slice. Sprinkle with cinnamon (don’t skip this step). Also try sprinkling a tablespoon of ground flaxseed on top for an omega-3 fatty acids boost.
Ants on a log. Fill celery sticks with your favorite nut butter and top with raisins or goji berries.
Homemade muesli Another snack that tastes better [and is healthier] when it’s homemade. Fruit and nut muesli makes a great yogurt topping.
Handful of nuts. Raw unsalted nuts are packed with heart-healthy fats and protein to fill you up.
Plain Yogurt. Greek yogurt can be made into so many delicious snacks. Make a savory dip and serve with raw veggies or add vanilla protein powder and serve with apples or strawberries. Be careful to avoid the high sugar found in flavored yogurts.
Chia pudding Combine the flavors of chocolate and strawberry for a wonderful snack that’s full of nutrients.
Boiled eggs. Eggs are packed with vitamins. Cut them into small slices and sprinkle some sea salt and pepper for a quick and easy high protein snack.
Gluten free rice cakes. Try avocado, garlic, sea salt and pepper, nut butter and banana or hummus and cherry tomatoes.
Homemade granola/protein bars. Homemade bars are so much better than store bought. Easy to make using your favorite ingredients. Try No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Squares or Nourishing Nut and Seed Bars.
Roasted chickpeas. Chickpeas are rich in protein and fiber to keep you full, as well as manganese and iron for an energy boost.
Healthy muffins. Yes, muffins can be healthy. Perfect for weekend batch cooking for a grab and go snack during the week. Loving this gluten-free Easy To Make Banana Walnut Muffins served warm. They’re made with healthy oat bran and they’re free of refined sugars.
Steamed edamame with salt Steam and top with a little sea salt. Snacking doesn’t get any better than this. Incredible taste and packed with nutritional benefits.
Healthy ice cream Healthy ice cream. I kid you not. Try this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream made with a frozen banana. The flavor options are endless and you can easily add a protein boost.
Hummus and Veggies – I prefer homemade hummus made traditionally or for a little variety made with sweet potatoes.
One of my all time favorite go-to snacks. I [may] have even been known to eat this for dinner. And the best part, cherry season will be here soon.
