Snack Attack: 10+ Healthy & Simple Recipes

Let’s face it: Busy schedules mean that sit-down meals often take a back seat.

What’s taken their place?

Snacks, of course.

Snack Attack: 10+ Healthy & Simple Snack Recipes | Aren't we all looking for easy and quick snacks to take with us on the go or to lose weight (for weightloss). Homemade snacks are always the best, but sometimes we have to settle for store bought. Whether you fancy sweet or savory these ideas will provide you with protein and fiber to keep you full! These snacks are also great for kids, toddlers, teens and everyone in between.

Don’t get me wrong, I L-O-V-E snacking. But we’ve turned from a meal-focused society to a snack-focused society. And it’s not just one snack, but multiple snacks—three to five a day for some people!

Unfortunately, those snacks don’t always equal good eating decisions.

Many packaged options offer a quick solution for a hungry stomach, but they are also full of ingredients that are less than healthy—lots of fat, sugar, salt, and other things that don’t do much to really satisfy our bodies.
