Eating every 2-4 hours has truly helped my digestive system over the past year. The key for me is to make sure I have lots of healthy & nutritious whole food snack options on hand. They don’t have to be complex! Something as simple as carrot sticks with a container of store-bought hummus can fight those mid-day munchies.

What are the best whole food snacks?

The best whole food snacks for you are the ones that taste the best to you and are the easiest to prep! Any whole food snack option will be a healthier choice than something processed or packaged. I’m a busy mom who works full time, so I like simple snacks that I don’t have to prep like chopped veggies and a healthy dip. However, you might enjoy a more complex tasting snack like peanut butter energy bites and have time to prep those for the week.

How can you make a whole food snack taste better?

If you don’t like the bland taste of plain vegetables or fruit, my suggestion is to experiment with seasonings, sauces and dips. Kale chips taste exponentially more interesting sprinkled with herbs and parmesan, and you can make plain yogurt taste like a luxe dip with your favourite spices and herbs mixed in.
