Recipe by foodiecrush

Level up on your avocado toast with this recipe. Most avocado toast recipes are heavy on fat and carbs. Adding cottage cheese rounds out this recipe with protein. And it’s not caprese without tomatoes! Garnish with basil, flaky salt, and fresh cracked pepper for a satiating snack.

Recipe by fitfoodiefinds

With just a few ingredients, you can have a healthy tuna salad ready in no time. Serve with crackers and bread. Serve with bread, crackers, or sliced cucumbers. For an Asian flair, add some sriracha and garnish with sesame seeds. 

Pro Tip: Keeping canned meats and precooked meats in your pantry and fridge makes it easier to whip up a snack. We recommend keeping cooked chicken breasts, canned tuna, and cured meats on hand to round out your snacks with healthy proteins and fats.

Recipe by Clphilo

Sweet and salty, this chocolate-covered pretzels recipe takes advantage of the convenience of your microwave. Dip the pretzel style of your choice in the chocolate and garnish with crushed almonds, toffee, sprinkles, or whatever you’d like. We recommend adding some crushed flaky salt to round out the sweetness. 

Pro Tip: Microwave your chocolate in increments, no more than 30 seconds, to prevent your chocolate from seizing. 

Making snacks doesn’t have to be difficult. The key is to have staple pantry ingredients on hand so you can get to snacking. These can include dried fruits, nuts, fresh fruit, vegetables, deli meat and so much more. Not sure what to make? Use our Use Up Leftovers tool and add up to three ingredients to get access to a list of recipes you can make. These obviously don’t have to be leftover ingredients but we recommend using this free tool to use your leftover ingredients for new dishes. Happy Snacking!
