Nourishing and Quick Snack Ideas

LoadingFavoriteAdd to favorites

Throughout the years, I have been a snacker, and then at other times, I haven’t. I go through phases. Right now, I don’t have any fast rules about snacking, some days I do, and some days I don’t. The key to snacking is to have healthy snacky foods readily available in the pantry, fridge, or freezer.  There are a LOT of things that I love about a raw whole food diet, but one thing that is a huge bonus is that most raw recipes can be easily frozen.

When NOT to Snack


Getty-Up-and-Go Snacks

Below I have listed out a few ideas for quick grab-and-go snacks. Pre-measure these items into single servings so you can throw them in lunch pails, backpacks, your purse, gym bag, coat pocket, or whatever your travel container might be.

Nuts and Seeds

Dried Fruit & Fruit Leather

Fresh Vegetables/Fruit and Dip

Precut veggies into snack-sized pieces, and if you are on the go a lot, pack them up in single-serving containers.

Dips, Spreads, and Dressings

These recipes can be enjoyed anytime.  If you busy away from home and want to take snacks with you, place these dips or spreads in single-serving containers. Here are some tasty combinations:

Granola / Bars / Cookies

Raw granola, bars, and cookies are very nutrient-dense foods. With the right ingredients, they can be a powerhouse to help fuel your day.  Most of these recipes can be frozen so you can make these up well in advance and enjoy them for days to come. Before storing, cut, and wrap each bar or cookie into a single serving and wrap tightly.




At-Home Snacks (but not limited to)

These snacks require a tad bit more preparation. They might need a knife to cut them, refrigeration, or a bowl or plate for serving. But that’s not to say that you can’t take these on the road with you. You know your situation, so do what works best for you.
