Go-to Snacks

Best on-the-go snack: RXBAR (Chocolate Coconut is my personal favorite)

Having a healthy, satisfying snack is usually very important in the afternoon to keep your energy up and your appetite satiated. When I look for a snack, I typically look for a good amount of protein (at least 8 grams), low in sugar (definitely no added refined sugar), and a healthy fat (such as nuts or coconut oil) to keep full. I’ll often combine a protein source such as dairy-free/ regular yogurt or almond butter with a fruit. Other times, when looking for something savory, avocado toast or a bowl of warm kitchari are great options. Then of course there are afternoons when all you want is something sweet, in which case black bean brownies are perfect because they have protein and fiber and the touch of maple syrup satisfies a sweet tooth. Always, always, have a big glass of water with your or before your snack because sometimes you aren’t hungry, you’re just thirsty. Find my suggestions below and start snacking!
