Here's 14 of the Easiest Plant-Based Snacks You Can Incorporate Into Your Pantry ASAP
The combination of wanting to be a bit healthier and being aware of our planet's climate crisis has led me to make a bold choice: I want to eat a more plant-based diet. This might not seem like a big deal to some, but my grandfather was a butcher. Meat, in my family, is a nonnegotiable. Plus, I love meat. In order to ease myself into this lifestyle change, I'm committing to only one meal with meat a day. The easiest areas for me to incorporate vegan food into my diet, hands down, are snacks.
Now, don't misunderstand me: my favorite snack is a meat and cheese board, so this is definitely a challenge. But I've done my research and come up with some pretty tasty vegan snacks that I can keep on hand for when hunger hits. The best part is, they can be delivered straight to my door. Happy snacking!
Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn Popcorn
Angie's Boom Chicka Pop Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn Popcorn ($11 for 4) has been a lifesaver for me. It's the perfect mix of sweet and salty, and I can't get enough. Come Bachelor Mondays, this is what I'll be snacking on.
Larabar Gluten Free Bar, Blueberry Muffin
I really rely on protein bars, and I thought swapping to vegan options would be tough, until I realized these Larabar Gluten Free Bars, Blueberry Muffin ($13 for 16) were plant-based. They're delicious, and I love having one in my bag. Larabar has so many different flavors, this just happens to be my favorite.
Daily Crunch Snacks Coffee-Soaked Sprouted Almonds
These Daily Crunch Snacks Coffee-Soaked Sprouted Almonds ($15 for 2) are a combination of two of our favorite ingredients, and we are so on board.
Enlightened Bada Bean Bada Boom Roasted Broad Fava Bean Snacks
I like to get the variety pack of these Enlightened Bada Bean Bada Boom Roasted Broad Fava Bean Snacks ($20 for 24) because I really love all the flavors, but if I had to choose a favorite, it would be the sriracha.
One Plant Protein Bars, Chocolate Peanut Butter
Plant protein has a reputation for being chalky, but that's not the case with these One Plant Protein Bars, Chocolate Peanut Butter ($28 for 12). They taste like a candy bar, and I reach for one as a quick breakfast.
Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips
If you've got a penchant for chips and guac, now you can indulge with these Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips ($34 for a six-pack). They're slightly lighter than a corn- or flour-based version, and they're so salty and delicious. When I put these out at parties, they're gone in minutes, and nobody misses the grains.
Raw Rev Glo Vegan Gluten-Free Protein Bars
These Raw Rev Glo Vegan Gluten-Free Protein Bars ($21 for a 12-pack) taste like candy but pack a whopping 11 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber. My favorite flavors are the peanut butter dark chocolate and the chocolate brownie.
