4 [healthy] Snack Ideas

fruits

I always say snack time is my favorite time, and it’s so true! I prefer snacking on things because I am constantly doing something- juggling 2 job, fitness and a social life- so I’d rather have smaller meals rather than 1 or 2 larger ones. Plus, I hear it’s healthier to have smaller meals!

3 out of the 4 snacks below are rice cakes. You might be thinking “Ew!” But With the toppings I added they are delicious. Plus, I love crunchy snacks. I typically have these as an afternoon boost, kind of a pre-dinner snack. I used plain brown rice cakes. Careful with the sugar and sodium in the flavored ones. Hope you enjoy! All are vegan & gluten-free.
