Healthy Snacks Recipe Book!

This simple blog post has snack ideas for you that are great for when you’re on the road, at work, or are too busy to whip up a quick recipe.

Usually I’m a big advocate of eating whole, unprocessed foods, but sometimes life happens. That’s when it’s a good idea to be armed with a list of healthy grab & go snack options that you can buy at the grocery store.

Here’s a quick checklist:

  • Tuna kits
  • Apple and 1-2 tbsp. of almond butter (Justin’s sells pre-packed single-serving nut butters, or you can make your own)
  • Low-sugar, single serving Greek yogurt (make sure sugar content is 8 or fewer grams of sugar per serving)
  • 100-calorie serving of nuts (prepacked at grocery stores, or make your own with 1/2 – 1 ounce serving of nuts)
  • Fruit & nuts (add some berries, or have a peach, pear, or kiwi with your nuts)
  • Chia seed bars (packed with fiber to keep you feeling full)
  • Grass-fed jerky (make sure it’s low in sugar and sodium, check the label)
  • Plantain chips or crispy chickpeas (watch your serving sizes, because they are addictive!)
  • In a pinch, try an RX Bar, Forte Bar or Kind Bar (these contain whole food ingredients)
  • Roasted pepitas or pumpkin seeds

When in doubt, make sure you scour the nutrition and ingredient labels. There should be a short list of ingredients, with no hydrogenated fats or chemical-sounding names you can’t pronounce.

Basically, you’re looking for a balanced snack with protein, healthy fats, and some fiber to keep you feeling full until you can refuel with a balanced meal. It also should be low in sugar and sodium.
