Feeling the need to snack on the 7 Day Vegan Meal Plan? I've got you covered with some ideas here. You want to make sure you are eating enough at each meal to feel satisfied and not snacking all day long, but 1 to 2 snacks on low calorie high volume foods will not derail your efforts at all. Here are some of my favorite go-to snacks.
SHOPPING LIST FOR SNACKS
fresh fruit and veggies
non gmo corn kernels for popping
FRESH FRUIT OR FRESH VEGETABLES
pretty self explanatory, and you can eat them until satiated.
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup dates (pitted)
1-2 tbl maple syrup
splash of vanilla extract
In a food processor add coconut flakes, rolled oats, and dates. Process for a few minutes. While processing add in the maple syrup and vanilla. Once the mixture begins to ball up its ready. Store in an air tight glass jar or glass container in the fridge. It will last in the fridge for up to a week. Eat this on its own for a sweet treat, or use it as a topping for your smoothies or fresh fruit.
HUMMUS & VEGGIES
desired veggies sliced into sticks
I used the following, but feel free to use what you like:
red bell pepper
2-4 tbl hummus - either homemade or store bought. If you have my cookbook, there’s a great hummus recipe can use. It’s actually what I use for the hummus in the recipe video.
AIR POPPED POCORN
Use non-gmo popcorn kernels, and pop in an air popper according to package directions
serve with a few sprinkles of sea salt, or nutritional yeast for a high volume low calorie snack.
