If you want to make it an extra special treat, add some vegan chocolate chips in with the mix! You can buy raw almonds and goji berries here.
- Energy Bites and Bars
Raw energy bites are so tasty and usually quite easy to make. Make a batch (or buy some here) on the weekend and store them in the fridge so you can grab some when you feel like you need something to nibble on. There are many different recipes out there, with many of them including hemp seeds, ground flax, cashews or almonds. Purchase some of these on this page.
- Sliced Fruit with Cashew Spread
Here’s another super easy and simple raw food snack. Just take some fresh or dried fruit like apple or banana chips and dip into your cashew spread! That’s it! Super simple, delicious, and healthy.
- Almond Butter & Goji Berries on Celery
Almond butter & goji berries on celery, A.K.A. Ants on a log, is a complete grown-up version of this beloved childhood snack, but your kids will love them too! You can also mix it up and use chopped dates, raisins or cranberries, tahini, peanut butter, cashew spread, or even sunflower seed butter instead of almond butter. You can buy most of these ingredients (sans celery) from our online store.
- Stuffed Dates
Take your favorite organic dates and stuff them with your favorite nut butter. You can even try adding a slice of banana and sprinkling it with cinnamon and cacao for a simple raw food dessert.
A well rounded whole-foods and raw diet requires a variety of foods. Make sure you add fresh fruits and vegetables to these delicious snack ideas as well. Also, try planning meals and snacks for your day ahead of time. Eating raw foods more often can mean additional preparation and planning in general, so if you’re not prepared, your only choice might be to starve! This in turn means you become ravenous, causing fatigue, which could possibly send you on a binge of eating unhealthy food.
You can plan ahead by making sure you have some of the ingredients listed above on hand by ordering them through our online store and having them delivered to your home, saving you time and money.
