5 Plant-Powered Snacks To Stave off Hunger

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I need my snacks! The one pitfall of a whole food plant-based diet is when or if you don’t eat ENOUGH. This is why I created this post and video on 5 plant-powered snacks to stave off hunger.

1.Matcha Power Balls – These are my all-time favorite snacks because they are so delicious, and easy to make!

Ingredients

4 pitted Medjool dates

2 tbsp almond meal

2 tbsp hemp seeds

1 tbsp unrefined virgin coconut oil

1 – 2 tsp Matcha Powder ( like Pique Tea Matcha Tea best)

Instructions

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until the texture is like wet sand.

Scoop out golf ball size balls with a spoon, and roll into perfect balls.

Place in a glass container in for up to 5 days in the fridge.

Tip: I recommend taking them out of the fridge a an hour or so prior to eating as they are tastier. You could also put them into a cooler bag to take to work.

2.Custom Trail Mix

Not everyone loves the same trail mix blend. My family and I disagree on which nuts, seeds, fruits etc belong in a trail mix! This is why I like to keep all the different ingredients in large Mason Jars. I then set them out on the counter with a spoon in each Jar. I leave a few reusable glass containers out, and everyone creates their own mix. Here are my favorites:

Dried unsweetened cherries

Dried unsulphured apricots

Raw Sprouted almonds

Raw sprouted pumpkin seeds

Sunflower seeds

Vegan dark chocolate chips

3.Celery And Crunchy Almond/Peanut Butter

Yep – a good old stick of celery shouldn’t be relegated to a kid’s lunchbox. Celery if choc full of vitamins, minerals, and fibers. Adding a couple of tbsp of nut butter gives you a fresh, crunchy, protein-filled snack.

4.Coconut Yogurt and Blueberries

I love coconut yogurt, especially cultured coconut yogurt (very pricey!). I sometimes get the cultured coconut yogurt as a treat because it has extra probiotics in it. I literally grab a small yogurt and top with mounds of fresh organic blueberries, or frozen (if not in season).

And you can even have a go at making your own cultured coconut yogurt.

If you don’t like coconut, try another one of the delicious plant-based yogurts now available. Just make sure it doesn’t contain added sugar.

5.Gluten-free Crackers And Hummus

When I’m in the mood for something savory, I always reach for crunchy gluten-free crackers and some delicious homemade hummus.

My favorite hummus in the world is my homemade Pumpkin Hummus recipe. I make it year round.
