Healthy Snacks to Enjoy In-between Meals

Snacks

 

- We love this protein-packed snack made from chickpeas that tastes like cinnamon toast crunch -- it will fill you up and satisfy your sweet tooth

- Yogurt makes a great healthy snack and this natural fruit sauce recipe with chia seeds will elevate your next snack

- Veggies and a dipping sauce can be a healthy snack and we enjoy this recipe for coconut milk ranch dressing which pairs well with carrots, celery, broccoli and peppers

- Before you reach for a bag of chips when you feel hungry, consider this chip made from cauliflower, which is more nutritious than your average chip
