8+ Easy Plant-Based Snacks for On-the-Go

Eating a healthy, plant-based diet doesn’t have to be difficult for those of us living a busy lifestyle. Whether you’re a parent, business professional, or anyone else with a hectic schedule, there are plenty of simple plant-based snacks for on-the-go that will fuel your days. 

Fruits + Veggies

If you want to stick with a simple snack, fruits and veggies are the way to go. They’re very quick to prepare – just throw some baby carrots with hummus in Tupperware and you’re ready to go (but you might need something more exciting if you’re packing for kids). 

Granola Bars

There are plenty of plant-based, healthy granola bars that will fuel you with nutrients and energy. Make sure to read the labels to ensure they have minimal added sugars, ideal protein, and are completely plant-based. It’s also pretty simple to make your own!

Nuts + Seeds

A small serving of your favorite raw or roasted nuts makes for a fantastic boost of energy that fills you up. They contain plenty of healthy fats to boost heart health, among many other benefits. Almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts, and walnuts are a few great nuts to snack on! 

Yogurt

Plant-based yogurt is a great snack that can also be very healthy. Similar to granola bars, make sure to read labels when purchasing to ensure you don’t get 100 grams of added sugar. If you want to spice it up, add some fruits and granola into your yogurt! 

Dried Fruit

Do your kids love gummies? There are plenty of dried fruit products that are healthy and taste very similar to gummy bears or similar gummy products. As long as they don’t have heaps of added sugar, dried fruit is a delightfully healthy snack.  

Vegetable Chips

Replacing regular, unhealthy chips with a healthier version makes a great snack (especially for kids who might think they’re eating real chips). They can be made out of kale, sweet potato, squash, peas, and nearly any other veggie. 

Spring Rolls

Spring rolls (wrapped in rice paper or collard greens) paired with a delicious peanut dipping sauce are a very fulfilling snack. They’re surprisingly easy to make and can be filled with carrots, cucumber, avocado, cabbage, and any of your other favorite vegetables. 

If using rice paper, you simply soak it in water then fill with your vegetables. Plus, they’re very easy to wrap since the paper sticks together.

Baked Goods

Who says a cookie can’t be healthy? There are plenty of delicious dessert-like recipes that are healthy and packed with protein. For example, try making black bean brownies or homemade cookies infused with protein powder. Incorporating superfood protein powder into your recipes can make an incredible difference, while still tasting amazing. 

Plus, you can easily make a big batch for the week and store them in the freezer to keep them fresh. 

Dinner Leftovers

Have dinner leftovers from the night before? A small container of it can be a fantastic and fulfilling snack for the next day at school, work, sports practice, etc.
