If you’re like me, you can’t help but snack every now and then (or always!). If you’re also like me, you also don’t buy them so that you aren’t tempted to ruin your diet. The good news? Just because you find yourself munching, however, doesn’t mean it has to ruin your diet. Eating snacks is actually a good thing. When you snack throughout the day, you’re actually curbing your hunger to prevent overeating and overindulging when you actually do sit down to eat your meal. If snacking is done right, there can also be some nutritional benefits. Though, you may not always want to pick up some grapes or nuts when you’re in the mood for a fix. For those who have a sweet tooth every now and then, and need to step outside of traditional clean eating, here are a few great on-the-go snack options.
With Beanfields, you can have your cake (or in this case — chips) and eat them too. These plant based chips are protein packed, so whether you need a quick snack between a workout, or just need a midday pick-me-up these are great and satisfying all around! Choose from Nacho, Seat Salt and many other addicting flavors that you won’t want to put down.
My/Mo Mochi Cashew Cream Frozen Dessert
Finally, a substitute for ice cream that we can all get behind! The My/Mo Mochi frozen desserts are so good, that you’ll never want to go back to ice cream (or dairy) again. These gluten free, vegan friendly treat made with a scoop of premium cashew cream wrapped in pillowy mochi dough. They are available in 4 flavor varieties, and personal favorites include caramel and chocolate!
Oatmeal on the goal? Protein cookies that taste just like the real thing? Our boss babes can appreciate a snack pack such as this. Choose from Munk Pack‘s oatmeal fruit squeeze or a protein cookie sampler pack to pop in your bag for use when you need a quick pick me up.
Popcorn is a favorite guilt-free snack that we’re always in the mood for. Smartfood Smart50 is even better because it’s air popped, contains no artificial preservatives and contains 50 calories or less per cup. And if you’re like me and prefer a bit of flavor — White Cheddar and Sea Salt will do just the trick!
Every now and then we need to detox our systems and start fresh. So if you want to opt away from whole foods to kickstart your diet or health food regimen, Raw Generation is honestly one of the best.

So if you have a sweet tooth, you can enjoy gummies, Swedish fish and other versions of some of your favorite candies in just 3g sugar & 90 calories for the WHOLE bag.
