Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I love Thanksgiving because I get to spend time with my family and eat a bunch of good food:) Who knows, I might even whip up a Chocolate Saskatoon Berry Pie with Cinnamon Apples inside! For today’s post, I’m going to share my favourite healthy snacks. Some of them are homemade, and others you can pick up at the store. The reason that I’m writing this post is because I love to snack on the weekends, but I want to make sure that I’m eating good stuff and not filling up on junk food. All of these snacks taste really good and are sure to satisfy, whether you’re craving something sweet or salty. It’s good to have a bunch of them on hand, so that on lazy days you don’t have to get up from reading your book and actually make something to snack on. Here’s my list!
Dried Apples I legit think that I’m obsessed with these things. They’re appley and crunchy and just YUM! I have a recipe for them on the blog, but I’ll admit that it takes a lot of work to make a good amount since they shrink in the oven, so I like to buy them. Just make sure that they’re natural and preservative-free;))
Granola Granola makes a great snack because it’s crunchy while being sweet, plus you can toatlly customize it by adding in whatever you like. I prefer to make my own granola, because store-bought ones often contain a lot of refined sugar, but their are some varieties that are healthier. There are currently two granola recipes on the blog.
Popcorn I love love love popcorn! It’s my salty snack of choice and is actually quite healthy. You just have to buy the right kind- avoid flavoured popcorns becasue they usually contain a lot of soduim or even MSG. I like the regular BOOM CHICKA POP popcorn because it pretty much only contains popcorn, oil and a bit of salt.
Crackers and Hummus Crackers and hummus is one of those things that I could eat all day! I love a good brown rice cracker and roasted garlic hummus. You could eat veggies and hummus too but crackers are way more carby and delicious;)
Fruit Dried fruit, fresh fruit, frozen fruit, all fruit is awesome and makes a great snack! I particularly enjoy eating frozen blueberries in the summer. Once I spilled them on the carpet and made a big stain though, that wasn’t fun;)🤣🤣
Muffins I have two healthy muffin recipes in the blog, and I like to make big batches and freeze them so that I can defrost one whenever I’m craving a soft, warm muffin.
Nice Cream Lately, I’ve been blending up some frozen mango or banana to make a delicious treat with a sorbet like texture. It’s soooo good!
Apples and Peanut Butter This may be my favourite snack of all time. It’s so simple yet so delicious! I use natural peanut butter to avoid the preservatives in the processed kind.
Those are some of my favourite snacks! I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving;)
