9 Healthy, Convenient Snacks
Posted on August 17, 2013
Everyone in my family knows that I despise the kitchen. But that didn’t stop every single member of my family from getting me something cooking related one Christmas after I moved into my own apartment for the first time. Dead serious. I got boxes of muffin mix, a bread pan, pizza cutter, cookbooks, a set of pots and pans and more. It was the worst Christmas ever.
This makes snack foods a critical part of my diet, since I’m such a convenience eater. Here’s a list of the only snack foods I keep in my house to prevent myself from eating unhealthy. If I am in the mood for a treat, I usually force myself to at least have to walk to the store to get it.
- Carrots/Broccoli and Ranch Greek Yogurt – stir this recipe for healthy ranch seasoning into a large container of greek yogurt.
- Carrots/Broccoli and Humus – there’s a variety of humus flavors you can get so it’s easy to make it feel like you’re adding variety to your snack list. I usually get carrots or broccoli just because they’re the only vegetables I really like (I’m a picky eater) that are available year round.
- Grapes and Ghouda - organic cheese is worth the money. I buy a big block of ghouda for $10 and it lasts two of us about a month.
- Apples and Organic Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
- String Cheese - great breakfast-on-the-go food to accompany the hard-boiled egg.
- Almonds - it’s easy to eat a lot of these so try to limit it to one handfull max per day.
- Granola and Yogurt - you can even mix in some fruit if you’re not as picky as I am.
- Hard-boiled Egg - whenever my carton of eggs are about to expire, I boil the rest and just keep them in my fridge for easy grab and go snacks. It’s even easier if you peel them beforehand too.
