Fresh Snacks – Fruits & Vegetables 

This may be a little obvious, but we wanted to show you some alternatives to make raw fruits and vegetables the snack you reach for as your go-to! 

Frozen Grapes

Perfect for a summer-time cool-down snack! Portion grapes into containers and put them in the freezer. When you’re ready for a frozen treat, take out your ready-made snack. Pro-tip: frozen grapes are also a fun way to chill down white wine without watering it down like ice cubes do—although we’re not encouraging wine as a snack…

Dip Into New Flavors

Add extra energy and excitement to your tray of raw veggies with protein-packed dips. We recommend hummus, tzatziki, guacamole, or bean dip. The key is to make sure you’re eating more vegetables than dip though… dunk lightly!  

Prep is key!

If you have your fruits and veggies ready to go, you’re more likely to eat them! If you don’t have a ton of time to cut and portion, buy the pre-cut ones. Cut them into interesting shapes, put them into colorful containers to grab your attention. Try one new thing a week as a challenge. Whatever it takes to get more fruits and veggies into your diet, do it!



Rice Cakes

Listen… we know you’ve heard this one before. But have you tried these toppings?

  • Avocado with balsamic vinegar 

  • Peanut butter with chia seeds

  • Feta cheese with cherry tomatoes 

  • Tuna with lettuce 

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly 

  • Apples with brie (just a small slice) 

  • Hummus with cucumbers 


The options are endless with this snack! Also, have you tried the various seasonings that rice cakes come in these days? Sun-dried tomato? Dill pickle? Rice cakes don’t have to be boring!
