50 Clean Eating Snacks

Holy cow it’s almost fall and already back to school time! While we don’t have any kids (just a puppy), we know that finding healthy snacks can be a challenge. We struggle with it ourselves and know that helping kids make healthy choices with snack foods can be impossible at times. So, when you send the little ones back to school this year, send them with one of these clean eating snacks in their lunch to help them get through the day. Go ahead, make one for yourself too!

Below you will find a graphic you can save to Pinterest that contains 50 clean eating snacks. Refer back to this list for inspiration when you are looking for a healthy snack idea to curb those hunger pangs. We’ve also included the full list with links to some example recipes for you below the graphic.

More Than Just Snacks – Meal Planning + Prep = Staying on track

Aside from having healthy snacks on hand at all times, the main thing that we use to keep our healthy eating on track is meal planning, meal prep and utilizing leftovers. Each of these can save you a ton time in your busy week. Not to mention, if you invest the time to plan and prep all your meals for the week, you take impulse eating off the table and simply eat the healthy meals you already planned, prepped and shopped for.
