One of the things I get asked the most is “What kind of plant-based snacks can I eat?”

Now is the perfect time to answer that question because February is National Snack Food Month!

That said, here is what you must consider before choosing your snacks:

1. Ask yourself if you can make your meals more satiating so that you are not hungry between meals.

Use Your Daily Whole Food Plant-Based Diet Chart to choose what to eat and check out our blog post on How to Build the Perfect Salad for an example on how to create a balanced meal.

2. Choose fruits and vegetables whenever possible, as they are the most healthful and nutritious snacks on the planet.

3. Watch for SOS ingredients, and pay attention to the energy density of your snacks if you would like to lose weight.

To get you started, here are 10 plant-based snack recipes that you can make at home.
