Five Vegan Snacks You Have Got to TryNovember 2, 2018
Everyone loves a good snack and when the 3pm slump hits pretty hard, you need something on hand to curb those cravings.
Now we all know those vegan treats that we’ve grown to love, but sometimes a bag of frozen grapes just won’t cut it. I’ve been exploring some of the latest vegan treats out there and these are my favourites…
Chilli watermelon seeds?! I know what you’re thinking and, trust me, I felt exactly the same when I saw them. How is it possible to create a delicious snack out of watermelon seeds, why would you want to and what on earth do these taste like?
I have quite possibly never encountered such a strange sounding snack but boy, do they do the trick! Slightly smokey and deliciously crunchy, these watermelon seeds are perfect for those savoury cravings.
Packing in 145.3 calories a serving (seems like the manufacturers couldn’t make their mind up about this one), you’ll find a whole host of health benefits in each pack – including 8.5g of protein per 25g! It’s the perfect addition to your salad or, even, as a pre-lunch snack!
Now Nakd Bars have been around for a while, but this flavour is truly one of a kind! Oozing with zestiness and packed with coconut, this bar goes incredibly well with your morning drink of choice. Not only is it vegan, but it’s also raw and contains no gluten or wheat! What’s more, Nakd are committed to keeping their food as simple and natural as possible – giving all the power back to the consumer. Give this a go with your cup of tea or as an afternoon snack to keep hunger at bay!
No treat list would be complete without a helping of chocolate. The Pulsin Raw Chocolate Brownie is by far one of the best things I have ever tasted. Dense and rich, you don’t need more than one and all your chocolate cravings are sorted! I’ve tried their Maca Bliss bar, but their other varieties include Peanut Choc and Salted Caramel (!!) Drooling yet? Their brownies are cold-pressed, free from soy products, gluten and contain no GMO products. Rich in fibre and fully plant-based, need I say more? Grab one of these after hitting the gym or when serious hunger strikes!
Is there a vegan out there who doesn’t like hummus?! Even if you’re one of the few who don’t, I would still recommend giving these a try. Eat real has done an absolutely superb job of providing a tasty snack that, in my opinion, are far better than crisps and with 48% less fat. My favourites are the Sea Salt flavour, but you’ll also find other varieties, including: Chilli & Lemon and Creamy Dill. And their range doesn’t stop there! Eat Real also has a range of lentil and quinoa chips to tickle your fancy. Pair these with your sandwiches, or as an alternative to popcorn!
Here’s another one for all the sweet-tooths out there; the Nine Cocoa Raspberry Seed Bar. With no gluten and 100% plant-protein, snacking doesn’t get more delicious than this. Each bar contains four different types of seeds all mixed together and coated in chocolate! They’re also high in fibre and a great source of magnesium; great for bone and heart health. The sweetness of the raspberries really comes through in this one, so grab yourself a bar after your lunch or tuck one away for a late night treat!
