Now I LOVE snacking. I just love eating in general and snacks are a great way to relieve that and if you’re going to be snacking, it might as well be in something that’s tasty but also good for you, right? Last time I wrote about my favorite healthy breakfasts to kick-start the day with and afterwards a lot of you asked for a post about my favorite healthy snacks as well, so I thought that today I was gonna give you exactly that!
Most of the snacks I’m sharing with you today takes little to no prep at all and is mostly just stuff that I throw together in a bowl whenever I’m feeling peckish. Fast and easy, it’s just what I do. Feel free to add your own favorite healthy snacks in the comments as well! I’m always looking for something new and delicious to munch on so suggestions are more than welcome!
First up is your favorite fruit with either some delicious almond butter or some low cal peanut butter.
Grabbing an apple on my way out has always been the easiest way to get in a healthy snack for me but it can become rather boring after a while. So to spice it up a bit, try adding a bit of your favorite healthy nut spread. IT’S SO GOOD.
Now usually I would go for the apple but I’ve recently discovered that apples aren’t very good for my stomach and I’ve had to switch to other fruits. However this does surprisingly work quite well with a variety of other fruits! There is just something delicious about the sweetness and saltiness together. It’s a combo you can never go wrong with.
I personally love to use almond butter but you can of course just swap the almond butter with something else or scrap it all together and just have a delicious piece of fruit instead. This is just a fun way to sort of “dress up” your average type of fruit and give it a little extra kick.
Secondly we have another favorite of mine, which is skyr mixed with either a teaspoon of almond butter or 100g of fresh strawberries. Now, I want to warn you before you jump in and start stirring all this stuff together: It’s going to look gross, real real gross, but trust me when I say that it tastes really really good.
I began doing this recently whenever I felt like having a snack in the evening. It’s fast, easy and delicious and skyr is full of protein and very little fat and carb which makes it a solid choice. Though it can be quite sour on it’s own which is why it just adds a little extra to mix it up with either some fresh strawberries or your favorite nut spread.
I know I talk about skyr a lot but it has basically become the foundation for all snacks I eat during the day, It’s just THAT good!
Light, delicious, foamy and most importantly warm. Is a good ol’ fashioned soy latte the perfect drink for when you are out and you need to quickly grab something on the road? I think so! It’ has definitely become my staple coffee beverage whenever I’m out or even just at home (though I haven’t quite found the right ratio of coffee to milk yet). Soya milk is light in taste and creamy in texture which just adds a nice flavor to your coffee. You can of course always add a little bit of natural sweetener as well if you are feeling really adventurous!
