Let’s face it, life is busy. And what helps power us through those crazy long days? Staying satiated! We’re already aware it’s a big no-no to skip meals, but going several hours in between is just as bad. That’s where snacks come in.
In a perfect Martha Stewart-inspired world, we’d while away an afternoon on some homemade granola bars, chia seed pudding, or some spicy roasted chickpeas. Those munchies are well-thought-out and sophisticated, but who really has time on a busy afternoon? Those snacks are great when you can plan ahead, but we need healthy nibbles we can whip up in a flash, because frankly, we aren’t always on our game.
Enter these knight-in-shining-armor snacks. They’re healthy and substantial, non-fussy, and best of all, they can be thrown together in just minutes. Check these recipes out the next time you’re feeling peckish, short on time, and not in the mood to succumb to a bag of chips.
