Healthy snacks happen to be an area that stumps a lot of people.

You know how it goes – you’re ravenously hungry after a long day’s work and just want to eat something, anything, and you’re ravishing your cupboards going “AGGGH I NEED FOOD RIGHT NOW”…

…and then you see the box of animal crackers or bag of chips or your roommate’s bucket of ice cream and all of a sudden, the whole thing is gone, and self hate begins to set in.

Well for one – if you can, try to get rid of as much of the bad stuff from your house as you can. If it isn’t there, you can’t eat it, no matter how bad you want it.

Secondly – make sure to stock yourself with healthy snacks to get you by!

Here are some quick and easy snack ideas to have on hand:


1. Guacamole (mashed avocado with 2 tablespoons of salsa mixed in) and carrot sticks or other raw veg

2. Piece of fruit

3. Nut butter on an apple with a little cinnamon on top

4. Boiled eggs (cook a bunch and leave them in your fridge for snacking on)

5. Butternut Squash Popsicles

6. Handful of soaked nuts or trail mix

7. Zucchini Hummus (or real hummus) with raw veg

8. A few spoonfuls of fermented vegetables

9. Wild Salmon or Tuna from a can

10. Kale chips

11. Sweet Potato Fries

12. Olives

13. Paleo fruit and nut bars

14. A bite of leftovers

15. A couple mouthfuls of shredded coconut or coconut  oil
