And while it’s super important to eat healthily, sometimes you just want a tasty snack that’s going to satisfy that craving whether it’s a sweet tooth you need to indulge or a hankering for some junk food. And sometimes, that can be hard to find as a vegan!
But here at PlantX, we’ve realized it doesn’t have to be so hard - if you know where to look! We have loads of great, vegan snacks that will leave your tastebuds feeling content and your body feeling re-energized. Take a look at some of our delicious snacking products and top tips below to become the ultimate, healthy snacking champion!
Snack inspiration for every mood
It’s fair to say that we aren’t always even that hungry when we snack! Anxiety, stress, excitement or even feeling blue can get us reaching for the fridge door. Because of this, it’s important to have a few great vegan snacks on hand that will fit any mood while being kind to your body.
If you’re looking for something to satisfy a sweet tooth, then we would recommend Hu’s Almond Butter Quinoa Chocolate Bar. Smooth, rich, organic dark chocolate with creamy almond butter makes this a real treat for the tastebuds. The crispy quinoa adds the perfect crunch - making this the perfect snack for all moods:
But sometimes we aren’t in a sweet mood and we need something savory! Our go-to is Simple Mills Rosemary & Seasalt Almond Flour Crackers! Super flavorful and a good source of vitamin E, these taste great by themselves or paired with some hummus. They hit the spot every time:
Leading a busy lifestyle can mean that sometimes snacking can replace eating proper meals, which we don’t recommend doing! But if you need something to keep you going that’s easy to carry around with you, we recommend Forager’s Cheezy Organic Leafy Green Chips. These organic vegetable chips are easy to transport with you and are bursting with flavor and crunch - making them the ideal snack to support you during a hectic day.
How to pick the best allergen-friendly snacks?
It can be hard enough to find tasty, vegan snacks - but the challenge can become even harder when you’re looking for allergen-friendly options. At PlantX, we like to make sure we include products that accommodate all dietary requirements. Veganism can and should be easy for everyone! Take a look at some of our fantastic options below.
Smart Sweets - Peach Rings:
These gluten-free tasty treats are super delicious! You’ll be shocked there are no artificial sweeteners from the sweet and succulent peach flavor. They’re also high in fiber and completely plant-based!
Let There Be Hemp – Spicy Chipotle Lime Grain-free Hemp Chips:
These allergen-friendly and gluten-free tortillas are the crunchy crisps you’ll be taking with you everywhere. Deliciously flavored with lime and chipotle, this grain-free and kosher snack is the perfect way to recharge.
How to keep healthy when snacking
Being a vegan already means you’re most likely making great steps in keeping yourselves and the planet healthy. But sometimes keeping your body healthy can be more difficult - especially when it comes to snacks. It can be easy to binge on things like sweets and junk food, so we’ve put some tips together to help you keep your snacking a bit healthier.
Try some high protein snacks:
High protein snacks leave you feeling fuller! Munching on a handful of nuts doesn’t feel like it will fill you up, but you’ll be surprised how much they do.
Don’t skip out on meals:
Sometimes when we’re busy, making sure we have three healthy meals a day becomes less of a priority. But making sure that you do have every meal will mean you’re less likely to binge on unhealthy snacks later on!
Don’t forget about drinks:
Who says a nutritious smoothie won’t fill you up? Take a look at our smoothie recipe below for some delicious smoothie-making tips.
Try to snack without distraction:
Snacking and TV seems to go hand in hand - but snacking while distracted isn’t the healthiest way to snack. Try to stop what you’re doing for a couple of minutes and eat your snack without distraction.
How to make a healthy snack from scratch
Making your own snacks is a great way to keep your snacking healthy, because you know exactly what’s going into them! Have a look at a couple of ideas below.
Making smoothies doesn't have to be expensive or time-consuming. Whiz some frozen berries, oats and a plant-based milk of your choice for a super healthy and filling snack.
For an easy snack-on-the-go, why not make some oat bars? All you need is vegan butter, rolled oats, brown sugar and syrup for these tasty treats - making them super easy to make and affordable.
