When we get a little hungry, there’s two different things that come to mind. There’s the things we should eat and the things we really actually want to eat. There’s the perception that the things we really want are what we should stay away from for a few reasons. Odds are they aren’t healthy and there’s also the worry it’s going to take more time preparing them than it’s worth in the end.
This can sound crazy, but what if you didn’t have to choose? A wild statement indeed but take a bite of any of these and you’ll not only feel full but also guilt free. After all, what’s better than that? Here’s some of the best snacks that you can whip up before you know it that’ll also give you plenty of energy because of how healthy they are.
Keep It Low Carb
Veggies might just be your best friend if this is what’s most important to you. If you are looking at healthiness above all else, you can have them raw but that’s not always everyone’s favorite. With a little time in the oven, or even boiled, there’s plenty more flavors to be unlocked from the veggies you’ve previously never liked.
Nothing Smoother Than A Smoothie
For those who have never made a smoothie themselves, it’s easy for it to seem like plenty of work but that doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, as long as you have a blender already, it’s a perfect case of the option to put in as much work as you’d like.
There’s plenty of recipes online so you’ll be able to sort your results by exactly what you are looking for, be it something that’s health focused above all else or you can focus on flavor first. Either way, once you have all the ingredients you need, this is a very quick way to get plenty of the nutrients you need each and every day.
Sneak In A Little Chocolate
This might sound like what you are trying to avoid but all things in moderation, right? You don’t want to have too much, obviously, but the darker the chocolate the less there is to feel bad about. Dark chocolate has plenty more to offer than its taste. There’s also plenty of antioxidants to help you get through the day.
Pair this with any nuts and you’ll have a quick treat that’s as healthy as it is delicious. Try it with almonds to also bring in a great serving of healthy fats.
Kick It Up A Notch
If you are someone without a lot of time but always on the quest for flavor, pepper jelly is exactly what you are looking for in a snack topper. Just spread it on your favorite crackers and you’ll be on your way to a sweet and spicy heaven. If you just go with that, you’ll be ready to snack in seconds.
For those looking to round out the flavors a little bit, there’s plenty of ways to do so. A classic option for that is adding your pepper jelly to creamcheese before scooping it all up with a few crackers.
Have You Met Ricecakes?
This might not sound exciting but there’s quite a world to open here when it comes to quick and healthy snacking. There’s plenty of flavors you can find in any supermarket that’ll be delicious on their own, like cheddar or chocolate and just as many options that’ll pair perfectly with your favorite nut butters.
