Healthy Snack Swaps 😋

This one is for all my snackers: 4 healthy snack swaps!


Save this post for the next time you get hit with cravings…


🥔 INSTEAD OF POTATO CHIPS, TRY:

Homemade kale or zucchini chips. Toss kale or thinly sliced zucchini in olive oil, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, and bake at 225ºF/107ºC until crispy (15-30 minutes for kale chips, 70-90 minutes for zucchini). Stir at least once during cooking.

Or jicama or sweet potato fries. Heat the oven to 400ºF/200ºC. Cut the veggies into fry-shaped sticks, toss with a small amount of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Layer on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring once halfway through. They should be cooked through and crispy-tender.


🍭 INSTEAD OF CANDY, TRY:

Fresh berries or frozen grapes. Both are sweet options with no added sugars.


🍨 INSTEAD OF ICE CREAM, TRY:

Frozen banana bites. Slice a banana, place in a freezer-proof bag, and pop it into the freezer. When you want a creamy snack, place a few “bites” in a bowl.

Or frozen chia pudding. Mix 2 Tbsp with ½ cup (120 ml) of your favorite milk and 1 tsp of honey or maple syrup. Let it sit for 30 mins to thicken then pop into the freezer.


🍪 INSTEAD OF COOKIES, TRY:

Crunchy-creamy rice cakes. Slather brown rice cakes with a thin layer of peanut or almond butter.


It’s not about depriving yourself or eating a “perfect” diet. It’s about making choices that support your health and your goals!
