5 Quick, Healthy Snacks to Eat When You’re Hungry

Author: Anne Stirling

Sometimes all you want is a quick, healthy snack that you can make at home and eat on the go. Hopefully this blog post will give you some good snack ideas.

I made a list of some of my favourites:

1. Pita Bread Pizza:

Take some pita bread, spread some tomato sauce, and cover it with cheese and some of your favorite toppings to get the healthy version of one of North America’s most popular foods!

2. Popcorn:

Place 2 tbsp of coconut oil into a pot and wait for it to melt. Add ¼ tbsp of salt, stir it into the melted coconut oil, and place a ⅓ cup of popcorn kernels. Close the pot and watch the kernels transform! Please wait at least 2 minutes after the popping finishes before opening the pot and placing it in a bowl. You can add hot sauce, extra salt, or even Kernels flavoured popcorn seasoning that you can buy from a local grocery store for extra seasoning.

3. Chocolate Banana Quesadilla:

This one is definitely a great treat if you’ve got a sweet tooth! First cut a banana into slices. Then, place a tortilla wrap on a plate, spread 1.5 tbsp of chocolate almond butter on one half of the wrap, and then top the chocolate almond butter with the banana slices. Then fold the tortilla in half and then place the quesadilla on a nonstick pan over medium-high heat until it’s golden brown. Cook both sides and then place on a plate to cool down and enjoy!

4. Yogurt Parfait:

Grab a bowl and make layers of yogurt (can be fruit-flavoured if you’d like), granola (store bought or homemade), and fruit until the bowl is full.

5. The Classic PB & J:

Grab a slice of bread, toast it and then place it on a plate. Spread peanut butter and jam onto the bread. You can eat it immediately or save it for later. It’s best enjoyed with a cup of milk.
