I have had quite a few people ask me what makes a good healthy snack. My go-to simple snacks include the following:
carrots, broccoli and snap peas
fruit (berries, apples, kiwis, bananas, etc)
trail mix (homemade!)
homemade protein bars
Trail mixes are SO easy to make! I like to put all kinds of nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, cashews, macadamias), seeds (sunflower, pumpkin) and dried fruits (raisins, cherries, dates, etc). The possibilities are endless! I also like to add cacao nibs and dried coconut. Go wild with it!
Cucumber salad is another great snack idea. I had a similar salad at a sushi restaurant in Missoula, MT. It was SO yummy. I wasn’t able to have the dressing they used because it contained soy sauce, so they put honey on it instead. It is as simple as sliced cucumber with fruit such as blueberries, strawberries, cantaloupe and kiwi with honey and sesame seeds on top. Give it a try!
