10 No-Fuss Quick Healthy Vegan Snack Ideas! Life can be very busy at times, but that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice eating healthy for the sake of being busy. Today I present you quick easy healthy snacks to make in under 5 minutes. Most of them require no recipes at all, some require a little more love, but they are oh, so worth it!
But what is the importance of snacking?
Healthy snacking improves overall health, curbs cravings, regulates mood, boost brainpower, and gives you the energy you need to keep going all day. Also, remember snacking on pop-tarts for example won’t give you any benefits at all!
The Importance of snacking between meals is so that you keep your blood sugar levels in check, and you don’t end up overeating on your next meal.
So instead of having 3 large meals a day, try eating several small ones. In this way, you won’t feel bloated, or sleepy.
Also, be careful what sort of ‘snacks’ you consume, eating crappy processed snacks like Takis, chips, and other processed stuff, won’t satisfy you, in fact, they will just stimulate your appetite, so you will just end up eating more and more, and that’s how obesity comes to the table.
Easy Snacks To Make
I live by these snacks, they are easy, healthy, and don’t require a lot of time to make. This ladies and gentlemen is healthy snacking made easy!
So here are my healthy vegan snack ideas for you:
Snack Number 1: Peanut Butter & Celery!
This requires 1-2 minutes to make max. Can make it at home, and take it to work, or you can even whip that up at the office. I mean, if they ask you why you have a PB jar at your work desk, just say that PB is life 😀 (it literally is for me)
Snack Number 2: Smoothie!
What’s not to love about smoothies…’chuck’ some leftover fruit and veg in a blender and add some dairy-free milk and blitz. Voila!
You can also add protein powders as well, and fill up for hours.
Take 3-4 minutes tops.
Snack Number 3: Stuffed Dates!
Can either be stuffed with whole nuts, chocolate, or almond butter! One of my favorite quick snacks. What I like to do is stuff the dates with almond butter, then coat them in chocolate and set them in the fridge. it’s a delicious snack!
Snack Number 4: Energy Bites!
Now, you can be quite adventurous here; I have got a couple of recipes for energy bites. Pick your favorite:
Snack Number 5: Granola!
Ain’t nothing wrong with snacking on granola. Especially if it’s a healthy one! It’s what I do when I hungry and don’t have anything in the house. I just grab a few handfuls of granola and fulfill my hunger.
If made homemade, granola can be actually healthy and filling.
I use this granola recipe.
Snack Number 6: Fruit With Peanut Butter
Snack Number 7: Chocolate Chickpea Bar
Yeah, you heard me right. Well, surely you must be familiar with chocolate hummus, however, chocolate-covered chickpeas only need 2 ingredients.
So how do you make chocolate chickpeas?
Roast canned chickpeas, then cover them in chocolate. Spread them on a tray and chill. Break into chunks and eat up! It’s actually seriously good for you and delicious!
Snack Number 8: Veggie Sticks With Hummus
The classic. You can’t beat a classic. But it’s such a good combo – I can never get tired of eating hummus with carrot sticks.
It’s a filling, nutritious, and low on calories snack. I have tons of hummus recipes, so feel free to browse around my recipes and pick your favorite.
Snack Number 9: Toast With Nut Butter
Toast isn’t just for breakfast. I like to make my own bread, gluten-free and full of seeds and nuts. I like to spread with almond butter or if you want to be a bit naughty, sure add some jam in there.
Snack Number 10: Fruit Salad
Nothing wrong with a good ‘ol fruit salad. They are colorful, nutritious, and can curb your craving for something sweet in a healthy way.
Mix your favorite fruits ( you can even add veggies too, cos why not) and eat up! They will fill up your stomach and for the cost of barely any calories!
