Snack tips for vegans
What makes a perfect vegan snack which is also good for your health? The advice is that we should think about our snacks in the same way that we think about our meals, try and get a source of plant protein and foods that are high in fibre with plenty of vitamins and minerals to pack in those antioxidants. Although, sometimes healthy eating does require planning ahead. Below are some easy recipes that use store cupboard products. Also, one top tip is to buy frozen fruit, tins of beans, chickpeas or legumes. Another product which is a kitchen essential for any vegan is a blender (Nutri Bullet type), you can whizz up vegetables or fruits – excellent for those strapped for time in the kitchen.
