10 healthy on the go snack ideas for busy days pin


As a blogger, I know how hard it is to take actual breaks to go get a snack. Trust me, if I wouldn’t have an actual schedule, I’d probably skip all of my meals just to work on my blog. However, I know that in the long run, skipping meals is not the smart or healthy thing to do. So, making sure I eat all of my meals (snacks included) is a priority to me. As it should be to you too! 

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I’m feeling lazy, I tend to eat unhealthy snacks. Why? Because they always seem like the “easier” option. However, that’s a huge misconception. Healthy snacks are also easy to make given the right recipe!


Therefore, whether you work from home or not, it’s important that you equip yourself with healthy snacks to keep you going during the day. So, without further a do, below I’m sharing 10 healthy sweet and savory snack ideas for all busy bees!

    🀀🀀 yum! Omg, I’m notorious for reaching for the ‘bad’ snacks because (in my head) they seem easier/quicker. I def think it’s all in the mindset you have though. I need to get better at reaching for healthier things and get the thought, “it’ll take longer to prepare something healthier” out of my head!
    Lately, I’ve been obsessed with cherry tomatoes! They’re great to just pop in your mouth and for me, are quite filling. The tangy turkey roll ups caught my eye and would def be something I’d like to try! Thanks for sharing these quick recipes doll!

      Glad you think so, Brooke! I agree – there are so many alternatives to eating chips or unhealthy foods that seem to be the “quicker” option!

    OMG I literally kept scrolling, thinking ‘I’m going to make this first … no this!’ LOL but I think the turkey roll ups and the peanut butter protein balls will be the first on my list to try. Plus, I was happy to see some favorites on here too – I love taco salad and avocado toast!! Both are such tasty, but lightweight food options.
