My 10 Favorite Guilt-Free Snacks
Anyone who has ever cleaned up their diet knows that finding snack alternatives can be a challenge. ESPECIALLY in the beginning. I get the “What can I snack on?” question a lot when clients are ready to ditch the sugar and processed food but also want to be prepared for when hunger hits. Although snack cravings tend to decrease dramatically once blood sugar is regulated, this can take some time. In case you find yourself struggling to find snack options, I thought I would share my top 10 clean snack foods. Added bonus, these are super quick and only require a few ingredients.
1. Hard Boiled Eggs with Primal Kitchen Chipotle Mayo
Whip up a batch of eggs on Sunday afternoon and slather a nice spoonful of PK mayo over a couple for some added healthy fat.
2. Dill Pickles
It doesn’t get much easier than this. There is something so satisfying about the salty crunch of a dill pickle (or two).
3. Sriracha Chicken EPIC Bars
I like to have a healthy paleo-friendly protein bar stuffed away in my purse or laptop bag and these seem to hit the spot.
4. Guacamole with Sliced Radish
You can dress up your guacamole however you would like but my go-to is avocado, lime juice, sea salt, and cilantro. The crunch of the peppery radish makes for a nice dipper.
5. Plantain Chips with Cashew Butter
Slather a dollop of cashew butter between two plantain chips and you’ve got yourself one tasty treat.
6. Siggi’s Plain 4% Yogurt with Pecans, Lemon Juice, and Sea Salt
Don’t knock this one until you try it, it’s better than it sounds.
Another simple favorite. Black, green, or purple, I like them all.
8. Raw Veggies dipped in Siggi’s Plain 4% Yogurt mixed with Balanced Bites Ranch Spice
This one is like Hidden Valley Ranch dip but WAY better. And WAY cleaner.
9. Macadamia Nuts
These are great for storing in your desk drawer at work. They also go nice with coffee, if I do say so myself.
10. Celery with Almond Butter
This childhood favorite still consistently hits the spot for a quick snack.
Is there anything I missed? What are your favorite go-to snacks?
