5 Great Healthy Snack Ideas
Check out these ideas for healthy snacks that you create and enjoy!
As a vegetarian, I’ve often faced the battle when grabbing healthy snacks, as most of the options were unhealthy (think of chocolate and crisps) or nutritionally imbalanced (yes, the cheese and onion pasty is a favourite EVERYWHERE). It is just no fun and super challenging when you are sticking to a balanced nutritional plan.
I found myself saying, “I can’t eat that” more often than, “That sounds tasty”.
Basically, I was no longer friends with food when I was out unless it was pasta, bread, or baked goods.
You don’t have to be vegetarian to get fed up with the same healthy snack options. Well, I think everyone I know has had a Tesco meal deal and had the bag of apples or grapes as their meal snack.
But it is not all lost. Healthy snacks are not:
- limited to what you make at home
- only a selection of pre-prepared fruit
Simply, you can eat great food even when you are on the go. Here are 5 great healthy snack ideas you can easily create.
- Option 1: Protein Box
- Option 2: Cheese and Olives
- Option 3: Stuffed Cherry Peppers
- Option 4: Trail mix (home-mix)
- Option 5: Celery sticks, filled or with a dip
3) Stuffed Cherry Peppers
I simply love making these and they are another fabulous fancy snack option.
The small size of the cherry peppers means you can make a couple and easily carry them around with you in a small tub. Plus, you can fill them to taste. Whether you opt for goat’s cheese, small balls of mozzarella, or choose to make a tuna and sweetcorn mix, you can really create to taste.
What’s even better is they would fit into your protein box or alongside some olives perfectly too! So stand-alone or part of a package, stuffed peppers can easily fit in.
