5 Healthy Snacks to Satisfy Cravings

We’ve all been there, those days where you just crave something sweet or salty! Whether it’s a bag of cheetos or a slice of cake, it can be hard to fight cravings especially if they happen at night. I’m always torn between indulging or trying to sleep it off haha. I have found some healthy alternatives to satisfy mid-day or late night cravings, here are some of my favorite options!

Apples + almond butter- If i’m craving something sweet this is always my go-to. I swear I could eat this snack everyday. Not only does this snack help fulfill that sweet and crunchy craving, it contains fiber, vitamins, minerals, protein, and healthy fats.

Hummus + crackers- Instead of grabbing the bag of chips, try this. Hummus is a clean protein source and a great savory treat you can put on multi-grain crackers or veggies. This snack will keep you full and provides a savory flavor with the added crunch of the crackers or veggies.

Oatmeal- You can 100% eat oatmeal at other times of the day and not just breakfast. This snack can be tailored to your cravings by adding brown sugar, fresh fruit, or even honey. A small serving of warm oatmeal is a great option to coat the tummy before bed.

Pumpkin seeds- You can eat these bland or toss in sesame oil and spices and bake at 350 degrees F until crisp. They are crunchy, chewy, and salty! Pumpkin seeds are protein-rich making them an ideal snack.

Chia seed pudding- Chia seeds are high in fiber and a good source of protein. There are so many different recipes, you can really get creative. I usually use 3/4 cup chia seeds + 3 cups almond milk. Combine, let it stand for about 30 minutes and top with fresh fruit or whatever you like!

Enjoie!
