Our eating habits are greatly influenced our kitchen supplies and vice versa. By simply transforming our food choices, we can move in the right direction toward healthy eating. For example, removing junk food is a great first step; if you don’t store any junk food in your pantry, you will better be able to avoid the temptation to eat it. It is also imperative to make healthy choices while shopping at the grocery store or making your grocery list. Try shopping at whole or natural food markets to help make healthier choices easier.
It is important to make a conscious effort toward developing healthy eating habits to maintain your weight and for your overall well-being. Here are a few healthy vegan snacks and their ingredients to help you stock up your pantry and develop a healthier lifestyle for a happy life.
1. Frozen Grapes
This is an easy, refreshing summer snack.
2. Kale Chips
If you are craving something salty, try some kale chips as your vegan snack. They are available at the market in many flavors, but you can also make them at home following some great recipes from the internet.
3. Rawnola Cereal
Another favorite vegan snack is chewy Rawnola which is naturally sweetened with the Medjool dates. Add some almond milk to a ½ cup of the cereal and you have a heavenly breakfast loaded with essential nutrients.
