Do you sometimes feel like the easy healthy snack ideas you’re finding on popular blogs are everything but not easy to make? I was restlessly scouring the web the other day, eager to find something new that I can incorporate into my workday and for me, the homemade broccoli cheese bread with homemade avocado hummus is everything but not easy.
Perhaps I’m an outlier, but regardless, I felt inspired to share 10+ easy healthy snacks that are actually a breeze to make so you can stave off the munchies during a hectic workday.
Pretty much the most simple Italian salad, made of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and sweet basil, seasoned with salt, and olive oil. It fits right into your lunchbox and packs a nutritional & protein punch.
Grab a handful in the office or wherever you are. They are full of good fat, protein, and fiber which may help satisfy your cravings and make you feel full for a longer time.
An easy protein-rich snack to have on hand when hunger strikes! You can experiment by putting it on a piece of whole wheat bread with some hummus, but that obviously bumps up the carb content.
Cottage Cheese With Dried Apricots
Cottage cheese is high in many nutrients as well as protein supports muscle growth and promotes bone health. Apricots will make things more flavorful while adding even more antioxidants to your snack. Too many upsides to not sneak this into your diet!
Cucumber Sticks With Hummus
Most of us tend to forget to hydrate during a hectic day. Not only are cucumbers the perfect finger food, but they also have a 95% water content to help with your liquid intake, and dipping it in hummus makes the combo even more nutritious & delicious.
Easy To Make Smoothie
Smoothies are best when they’re fresh and they’re even better when you don’t have to spin up the blender and slice up all the ingredients. You couldn’t really do that on the go anyway unless you’re drinking a Smoothie-N-Go. All you need is some liquid and a water bottle to gulp down a nutritious snack.
Grapes With Cheese Sticks
Grapes pair just as well together with cheese as tortilla and salsa, except they’re way more nutritious. You’re going to feel a lot more sophisticated while eating it too.
If you’re not iffy about eating meat, a pack of beef jerky is hard to beat especially if you’re out and about. It’s suitable for paleo or keto people also, due to its high protein and low carb content. Try to go for the ones that are made out of grass-fed beef as opposed to grain-fed ones.
Avocado Puree With Banana Slices
Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like and it's yummy & nutritious. Simply mash the avocado with a fork and slice the banana on top. If you’re not planning on eating it immediately, squeeze some lemon juice on top of the avocado to prevent it from browning.
Tuna Deviled Eggs
Tuna combined with eggs and mayo make an incredibly tasty, bite-sized snack. They make a great low-carb, high protein alternative to tuna sandwiches, with a little twist. Scoop out the yolk of the hard-boiled eggs and mix it up with some tuna chunks and mayo then simply add it back into the yolk holes. Sidenote: if you're eating these in the office, make sure you have some mint on hand after you finish your snack. I warned ya!
One of the best alternatives to potato chips, because of the high fiber and low carb content. It’s easy to just pick up a pack of these whenever & they are fun to nosh on and satisfy a sweet tooth!
