Heyyy Healthy People!!!
I hope everyone had an awesome Thursday! I wanted to blog about SNACKS. Remember when it was so much fun to hang out during snack time in our grade school years? Pass the snacks, trade your mom’s cookies for someone’s mom’s other type of cookies. HA.
Well tonight I wanted to blog about VEGAN snacks since that’s what I have been eating and I think it would be great even if you don’t want to become a vegan to eat vegan option from time to time. Or maybe a way to transition into a more vegan focused lifestyle. Have you seen Forks Over Knives? You can rent it on Netflix and it’s a MUST see.
Here’s a few:
ANDDD for all of you non-vegan’s I hope your face isn’t like this:
1.) Veggies and Hummus…mhmm (I like to add fresh chopped up Garlic to my hummus)
2.) SOY Yogurt!!! Check it out: I get the vanilla and love to add frozen raspberries to it, SOOO good!
3.) Handful of pretzels
4.) OREOS?? WHO knew these were Vegan?? Pretty cool/full of sugar so eat in moderation!
6.) Vegan Trail Mix (Just look at the ingredients or buy at a specified vegan section, a lot have yogurt bits and chocolate etc…)\
7.) Rice Cakes…you can spread Natural PB on them or add garlic powder!
8.) Nuts and Sunflower Seeds
9.) Granola Bars or Protein Bars (just double check the ingredients, no eggs, dairy, butter etc etc etc)
10.) Organic Applesauce
11.) Banana Chips
12.) Any fruit Obviously!
13.) Or veggies mhmmm
15.) Veggies with goddess dressing
16.) Dried fruit such as dates, mangos, raisins (beware a lot of these have added sugars)
17.) Popcorn! You can top it with nutritional yeast! (make sure it’s air popped, everything else has butter on it!)
18.) Banana or organic apple with Peanut Butter
So these are just a few options but you can get fun and creative with vegan cheeses and dressings and stuff! The whole idea is to not go hungry and have everything be tasty and satisfying!
As this week finishes I have exactly one more week of classes in my undergraduate career. Seems crazy to me how fast time has flown by! I look forward to moving back down to Florida and Working at my new job at Athletic Edge in Bradenton, FL. But I will miss JMU more than I can probably even imagine at this point. So blessed and thankful for all of these experiences and opportunities.
