I’m pretty sure this post will make vegan marathon training more doable for me! I’m doing pretty good, but I get sooooo hungry between meals the day or two after a long run. This should help hold me over. Perfect timing too, because in the next few weeks I’ll be up to the longest runs. I just tried the endurance crackers and the protein bars and despite the fact that my crackers came out WAY thicker than yours did, they’re still great snacks! I think my favorite are the oatmeal squares. Awesome breakfast for sure! Thank you for the awesome ideas. :-)
If you're looking for a creative way to add more fruit to your diet, try frozen banana pops. Slice several peeled bananas in half and insert popsicle sticks. Coat each half with an ounce of low-fat plain yogurt. Put the pops in the freezer, and soon you'll have ready-to-eat low-calorie treats. At just under 80 calories a pop, this is a snack you can feel good about.
Sweet & Savory Snacks to celebrate the holiday season! The December Snack Box was one of the most epic snack boxes of the year. Inside was a variety of snacks and vegan alternatives to classic staple ingredients, including a pack of delicious Larabars, a smooth Protein drink from Pirq, and more. The box was the perfect holiday gift for anyone on your list.

If you need your snack to have real staying power, go for a combo of good protein and a little bit of fat. A homemade egg salad is a great choice. Chop up one whole egg and one egg white, then mix with a tablespoon of reduced-fat mayonnaise. The high-quality protein in the eggs will fuel your body for hours, while the fat helps slow digestion, so you'll feel full and energized longer.
Packed with fiber, water, and antioxidants, fruits and vegetables are great choices for diet-friendly snacking. But the standard banana or carrots and ranch dip can get old quick. Instead, try a sliced apple with a lowfat cheese wedge, like Laughing Cow Light. "Having a little extra fat is good in a snack because it sustains you longer," says McLachlan.
This is one of my favourite quick snacks, that is if you bake the acorn squash ahead of time. I like to include one or two baked acorn squash in my weekly food prep so they’re ready for snacks and meals during the week. My favourite fillings are peanut butter, yogurt and granola but you can also fill them with savoury ingredients like hummus, guacamole, quinoa, black beans, any mixture of those or anything else you can think of.
Raw energy bites are one of the easiest and tastiest snacks to keep on hand during a busy week. Try making a batch on the weekend to store in the fridge so you can grab a few when hunger strikes. They’re also a great way to get essential omega-3 fats into your nutrition to your diet as many are made with ingredients like hemp seeds, ground flax, almonds or cashews.

This is the first time I’ve ever been to your website and I can’t tell you how happy I am to have found you on Pinterest! I almost didn’t click the pin! Your recipes look fantastic, something I don’t often say about vegan recipes. I am pregnant and nursing right now and all of your snacks on here can be eaten and enjoyed! I can feel my protein intake rising.. :P

Freekeh is a cereal made from roasted green wheat. That's the one and only ingredient in this snack's original blend, making it an ideal packaged snack. With zero sodium, four grams of fiber, six grams of protein, and only 130 calories per quarter-cup serving, you can help yourself to an extra-large serving. Try rosemary sage or tamari when you want to mix things up.
This colorful creation makes for a festive appetizer or a delicious bite-sized snack. Thanks to the zucchini base, they're loaded with vitamin A, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, calcium, and protein, just to name a few of its many nutrients. Plus the sun-dried tomato adds a dose of vitamin, iron, and antioxidants. While the goat cheese adds a boost of protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied longer.
Popcorn is quite simple. Just buy a packet of popcorn kernels, fry them in oil in a covered pan, and add salt, or anything you like. You can really create your own flavor here, like cinnamon, plain salt, salt and pepper, spicy, and so on. Just make sure that the frying pan is covered. That is very important, otherwise, the popcorn kernels are going to be popping all over your stove top, cabinets, the floors, you get the idea. It is going to look like an explosion in Molly Weasley’s kitchen (Yes, I read all the Harry Potter books 😉 )
For a savory snack under 60 calories, spread 1 tablespoon of low-fat cream cheese onto a slice of smoked salmon (lox) and roll it up. This salmon pinwheel is high in protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, though the salt used to cure the salmon boosts the sodium content. Use a little less cream cheese and you can have two pinwheels for under 100 calories.
