30 MORE Healthy Snack Ideas (paleo, dairy-free, refined sugar-free)

Our clients are always asking for snack ideas. It’s very daunting, this world of clean-eating, when you’re not really sure what you can eat and you miss all of your old favorites. We are a snacking society. Everywhere you go people are pulling out boxes and bags of processed and artificially colored “food”. Kids are given 2 snack times during a full schoolday; and snack machines are everywhere. And filled with anti-nutrients at best. I’m okay with snacks. As I said in my first post, 30 Healthy Snack Ideas, I LOVE snacks. But the word “snack” does not need to be synonymous with “junk food” or even unhealthy. Let’s redefine the snack. Let’s take the snack back. Let’s find healthy ways to get our snack on while still maintaining the integrity of what a snack really should be – what food really should be.

*We recommend shopping organic and local when possible to avoid pesticides and other harmful chemicals and to optimize nutrient quality!
