65 Healthy Vegetarian Snack Ideas

20120707-DSC_7762-5(vegan tzatziki with veggies)

As much as I love cookies, cakes, chocolate and chips – those snacks just don’t leave me feeling very well. Healthy snacks, however, leave me feeling energized. I don’t feel bogged down with processed sugar, unhealthy fats or too much salt. As I transition to a plant-based diet void of processed sugars and refined grains, I am finding that I am craving fruits and veggies more and more. Whenever I have a craving these days, it’s for green juice or fresh mango slices with hemp seeds. Seriously. What’s happening to me!? *haha* My taste buds are changing and I’m okay with that. I feel great and that’s all that counts. In an effort to help me plan snacks throughout the week, I scoured the web to find some of the tastiest sounding healthy vegetarian snack ideas. Below you will find 65 great snack ideas that include a variety of roasted chickpeas, popcorn, healthy chips, fruit snacks, smoothies, veggies and dip options and some some sweet treats.
