Saying goodbye to processed snacks and foods can be challenging, especially if you’ve grown accustomed to having them in your previous diet. Here’s how you can indulge your taste buds with healthy and affordable plant-based snacks that have tons of flavour and nutrients.
Munch on the go
If you’re always on the road and pressed for time, having an on-the-go snack at hand is perfect for when you are running errands or at the office.
- Chickpeas: Versatile and filled with a rich source of protein, chickpeas can be enjoyed roasted or as part of your favourite hummus.
- Oats: High in fibre, oats can be made into a tasty overnight oat snack or even sprinkled over your very aesthetically pleasing smoothie bowl.
- Trail mix: If you’ve got an assortment of nuts on hand, such as brazil nuts, cashews or even almond nuts, you can create your own trail mix. For more flavour and texture, add a few seeds into the mixture.
If you’re new to following a plant-based diet, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed sometimes. Not everyone may have the time or budget to head to the nearest grocery store, grab a handful of plant-based products and still have the energy to prepare a snack they’ve never made before. Here are three snack time recipes that are wholesome, delicious and made with ingredients you may already have in your pantry.
- Pan-fried Cinnamon bananas: A banana is already good on its own. Why not jazz it up for an extra kick in flavour. All you need is to dip them in cinnamon, sugar and a hot skillet. Fry those bad boys until golden brown, and bam, you’ve got a tasty snack just like that!
- Honey almond popcorn: Buttered popcorn? Sorry, we don’t do that around here. Forget the overly spiced popcorn and enjoy a bit of sweetness at your next movie night with some honey or maple syrup and a dash of almonds.
- Pecan Pie Muffins: Nothing says wholesome than a tasty pecan pie muffin. Thinking about enjoying the taste of a hearty pecan pie? Create this simple yet delicious muffin recipe with the extensive product range from Bodicafe.
