We’re all for eating kind, but the vegan diet can sure be a challenge to our snack game. Vegan snacks tend to err on the side of rice cakes, which have a reputation for resembling cardboard.
To combat the vegan snack time woes, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite snacks that are nutritious, filling, and oh so savory.
Sweet potatoes have been lauded for their nutrient content and have even been dubbed a super food. An excellent replacement for white potatoes, they contain fewer calories and nutrients that keep you fuller longer.
Edamame is a satisfying blend of convenience and flavor. These steamed green soybeans have a soft taste with a salty crunch and can be seasoned in a variety of ways.
This Instagram food trend is here to stay- at least in our cookbooks! Avocado toast is decadently simple and can be paired with strawberries and black pepper, crushed red pepper and olive oil, or black beans, lime juice, and hot sauce.
Before you run away, have you given kale chips a try? We love this recipe for sea salt and garlic kale chips, but the seasoning possibilities are endless.
Along with heart health, walnuts are helpful when pursuing a good night’s sleep. They contain tryptophan (just like turkey!), an amino acid required to make melatonin.
We recommend enjoying walnuts in the late afternoon when there’s not a deadline looming above your head.
Unlike walnuts, matcha provides a caffeine boost that will power you through morning, noon, and night. Remember that deadline we mentioned? Matcha will help you kill it.
Eating kind doesn’t mean you have to eat bland. Plan ahead and enjoy a savory snack all week long.
