Nutritious Vegan Snacks to Boost Metabolism

Take the guesswork out of your grocery list and use the list below of snacks to boost metabolism and keep you on track with your healthy routine.

Mid-morning Suggestions

Apples with Cinnamon and Peanut butter dip: Sprinkle cinnamon in 2 Tbsp peanut butter and use as a dip for your sliced apple.

Small smoothie: Blend 1/2 banana, blueberries, flaxseed, almond milk, and ice. (add 1/2 scoop of plant protein for thickness or extra protein if desired.)

Low carbohydrate protein shake with nut butter: Sun Warrior is my favorite carbohydrate free protein that comes in a variety of different flavors. Blend with your favorite almond, peanut or cashew butter for healthy fat and carbs.

Afternoon Ideas 

Hummus with Vegetables: Measure out 2 Tbsp of hummus and eat with your favorite vegetables instead of chips.

4-6 oz Green Veggie juice with 1/4 cup walnuts: Make your juice at home or order it freshly pressed to get the most nutrients. Add a few walnuts for protein and healthy fat.

JustFit PB2 Bites: Use 2 tbsp of Pb2 and mix with 1/4 cup almond milk, 1 scoop of plant protein, and a drizzle of agave. Stir in 1/4 cup of oats, crushed cashews or almonds, with a pinch of raisins or coconut. Roll into little balls to make a high energy snack. (this one is great for after a workout)

Late night!

5 oz glass red wine and small handful cashews: Red wine is great for your heart and even belly in monitored amounts. Keep it at one glass to reap the benefits and keep the calories down.

Avocado on sprouted toast: Spread half an avocado on a whole grain sprouted toast. Add sliced tomatoes and arugula. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
