Healthy Vegan Snacks
We like to eat these delicious (mostly) healthy vegan snacks occasionally when we’ve had a hard workout day or a long hike.
However, we don’t snack nearly as much as we used to now that we’re eating a truly Whole-Food Plant-Based (WFPB) No-Oil diet because we’re simply not hungry as much. Our blood sugar levels remain more constant without the steep insulin spikes followed by the plummets that leads to hunger a few hours later. That means we can make it from one meal to the next without feeling hungry…most of the time.
Additionally, we usually eat fresh fruit when we want a snack. A combination of cantaloupe, pineapple, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, mangos, papaya, kiwi, mamey and watermelon are always on hand, cut up and in the fridge so they’re ready when we want them.
Amelia doesn’t eat as much fruit as I do, but I typically eat fresh fruit with breakfast and for dessert after lunch every day.
