Enjoy A Snack Attack With A Vegan Vibe

If for ethical or health reasons you’ve decided to try a vegan diet, you may think that snacks are a definite no-no, with a bit of imagination and planning during your weekly shop, these are all vegan-friendly snacks you can eat when you’re on the go and hunger strikes or if you need a quick boost before or after a workout.

    • A rice cake spread with some peanut or other nut butter.

    • Some ripe melon, skin and seeds discarded and the flesh chopped into chunks. This will keep for a couple of days in a covered bowl in the fridge. If you like, mix in a little chopped stem ginger in syrup.

    • A packet of vegetable crisps or plain popcorn.

    • A couple of fruit leather yoyos.

    • A handful of almonds and/or some dried fruit – raisins, sultanas, banana chips or ready to eat dried prunes or apricots.

    • Baby carrots (choose organic carrots with the tops still on for the best flavour) or plain breadsticks, served with hummus.

    • Crushed avocado on sourdough toast with a squeeze of lemon, and finely chopped chilli or basil.

    • A bowl of granola with soya or almond milk.

    • Baked sweet potato wedges – drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of cumin, cayenne pepper, paprika and salt and bake at 400°C until cooked. Serve with sauce (for example, Mr Organic Tomato Ketchup).

    • Halved cherry tomatoes, sprinkled with a little olive oil and oven roasted or cooked in a covered saucepan until thick, seasoned and served on crisp sourdough or granary toast, rubbed with a clove of garlic (optional).

    • A fruit smoothie made by blending a banana with some soft fruit (raspberries, strawberries or a chopped peach), adding some orange or apple juice and blending again.

    • A pot of vegan dairy-free “yoghurt” made with either soya or coconut, such as Alpro or Koko, from major supermarkets.
