Some of you might recall a post I wrote a while back called Going Vegan: Worries, Transitioning, And More… where I talked about how I’m transitioning into veganism. I still am, although I’ve fucked up a lot on the way. I’m working on it, which is the good news.
Anyway, in that post, I mentioned a couple quick snack ideas, and now I’m back to share 7 more healthy vegan snack ideas. These require a bit more prep, but they’re so worth it!
This is less like a snack, and more like a light meal. I usually like to have 3-5 falafels around 8 pm as a light dinner/snack.
There’s a place that makes fresh falafels every day, so I get them from there, but if that’s not available to you, then you can always make your own at home!
I found this great video from AllRecipes (I love their channel for easy recipes and simple instructions! Check them out if you’re kind of new to cooking or just want a new recipe to try out.
(the calorie count is for plain air popped popcorn)
This is such a classic crunchy snack that can be spiced up with a ton of toppings. My favorites are probably caramel and garlic powder. (Update: I was rereading this, and I just wanted to clear up that I don’t like them together.)
I’m thinking of writing a whole post about fun ways to spice up popcorn, so expect to see that sometime in the future.
I mentioned the frozen grapes in my other post, but they’re just so good, that I have to mention them again.
If you just pop some grapes in the freezer overnight, you’ll have some sweet treats that will completely satisfy your sweet tooth while still being healthy.
This is kind of like the falafel again. It’s more of a light meal, but I love having one or two of these around the time I finish studying to fill me up and energize me a bit.
I love to stuff my spring rolls with mashed potatoes, peas, carrots, and cabbage, but you can experiment with what mix and wrap style you like the best. You can wrap your rolls with puff pastry, lettuce, rice paper etc.
If you don’t know how to make spring rolls, then you can watch this quick video from Blogaloties (great health channel, I know most of you have heard of her before)
If you don’t want to use the rice paper, then you can check this recipe which uses regular pastry paper. I also wanted to mention that I like to air-fry them instead of using oil and filling them up with all that saturated fat.
This is one of the quickest, easiest, and lightest snacks on the list.
Just get a rice cake and put whatever toppings you want on top. I like to put some minced olives and sundried tomatoes (literally the best mix ever, try it!)
I like making a batch at the beginning of every other week and snacking on them while I’m studying or at school.
They give you such an energy boost and fill you up without being heavy. Great for on-the-go!
This is the recipe I follow, it’s really simple, only 3 ingredients (I like adding agave sometimes).
Last but not least, I have one of my all time favorites! Garlic Bread.
I’ve always been addicted to garlic bread, so I’m so grateful that someone actually made a vegan recipe that tastes almost the same if not better.
That’s all I have for you today, thank you for reading!
Much love, Rawan …
