Simple Vegan Snacks

Food and Eating August 19, 2017

There is a lot of talk these days about how healthy a vegan diet can be, however, there are always two sides to a story, and many think that a vegan diet doesn’t hold enough protein and other nutrients we get from dairy and protein like fish and seafood. While the jury is still out about whether or not this type of diet is for everyone, most people do agree that it does have some healthy aspects, such as being basically sugarless and low fat.

One of America’s biggest health problems is the snack industry. Most snacks sold on the market today are addictive with too much salt, too much sugar, and little nutrition. But snacks don’t have to be unhealthy. They can provide vitamins and nutrients and be delicious too. Healthy snacks help us keep our energy going throughout the day and will keep us away from the company candy machine and the sugar laden sodas.

However, some people are intimidated by vegan cooking, which is understandable. Many vegan recipes call for a series of ingredients that many have never heard of. We will offer you some vegan snack options that are healthy, simple to make and taste scrumptious, all at the same time,

Trail Mix

Trail Mix can include a wide variety of ingredients; nuts, dried fruit, granola, healthy cereals, oats, and carob, a vegan substitute for chocolate. Coconut is also a great ingredient for trail mix recipes.

Seaweed Snacks

Seaweed snacks are becoming all the rage. There is roasted seaweed, salted seaweed, and wasabi flavored seaweed, to name just a few. These crunchy snacks are delicious and satify the craving for potato chips, which are far more saltier and oilier than seaweed.

Roasted Chick Peas or Garbanzo Beans

Two names for the same food is not uncommon. Chick Peas and garbanzo beans are the same foood depending upon the area in which you live. Regarless of what you call them they are full of flavor once you season them and roast them in the oven on low for a few minutes.

Baked Veggie Chips

This is a simple recipe you can cook at any time. Baked root vegetables make a hearty snack that curbs cravings and fills you up, and they taste good too. Try slicing parsnips, sweet potato, beet roots, and sunchokes, into really thin slices, season with a sea salt or Kosher salt and whatever flavorings you enjoy and bake on a low temperature for varyiing time frames. You don’t want to burn them, so keep an eye on them as they cook.
