Due to the fact that the vegan diet is all about plant-based foods, and animal products are a no-no, thinking about what to snack on could be quite challenging. But this should not be a problem if you want to stick to your chosen diet because, really, there are lots of fruits, vegetables, and combinations of other related products that you can munch on.
To help you out, here is a list of vegan snacks that you can consider:
Craving for candies? Frozen grapes are an incredible vegan treat at any time of the day. They are very refreshing, especially during the summertime, and, yes, they taste like candies!
To be prepared all the time, fill a mason jar with fresh grapes, and keep them in your fridge. When you get hungry, you can have a handful of this nutritious vegan snack.
As a vegan dieter, you can’t really just indulge in a slice of pizza whenever you want to. First of all, you have to look at the ingredients. But with a watermelon pizza, you are safe.
What’s a watermelon pizza anyway? The ‘crust’ is watermelon and the toppings are fruits with coconut yogurt. Super delicious and healthy!
Fruit and Nut Butter
This treat is not only high in protein, but also fiber and healthy fats as well as other essential nutrients. Plus, it’s delicious! Imagine the flavor of blended nuts and fruits melting in your mouth. Uhmmmm…..
There are different combinations that you can try out. The only thing that you should be careful with is the nut butter. Shop for something that has no sugar, salt, and oil.
Guacamole and Crackers
Guacamole, which is made from the mixture of avocado, lime juice, garlic, and onion, is a very popular dip worldwide. You can prepare it on your own. Or, you may opt to buy one from the supermarkets.
When it comes to the crackers, make sure that you pick those that are whole-grain. That plus the guacamole is certainly a vegan snack that you can’t resist!
Oatmeal With Fruit
Oatmeal is usually a food item eaten during breakfast, but, of course, it can be eaten throughout the day. Simply mix it with your choice of fruit, and you have an instant vegan treat.
For this one, you can go for the instant option but stay away from those that contain sugar or salt.
Peanut Butter Jelly Apple Nachos
We all know how healthy apple is and that it is a great snacker. How much more if it is combined with nachos and butter jelly? It’s gonna be awesome!
Baked Veggie Chips
This snack is versatile. There are lots of veggies that you can choose from. All you have to do is slice them up, dehydrate or bake at low temperature, and you’ll have an amazing vegan snack.
You can buy baked veggie chips from supermarkets too, but be sure to check what’s in it.
Baked and seasoned with a little bit of salt, seaweed crisps make a delightful vegan snack too. It is low-calorie but it comes with a bunch of nutrients as well as fiber.
