Sustainability goes beyond ethical design and what I wear, it has seeped into other areas of my life including what I eat. For the past 4 years I have been a vegetarian, moving towards the vegan lifestyle (although the latter has been and still is a struggle for me) – overall cutting back on animal products and incorporating plant-based foods becomes even more challenging when I am trying to snack.
If you wander into any newsagents 9/10 times you will find that every sweet or chocolate bar contains dairy or animal extracts and whilst carrying around fruit, crackers or a pot of hummus is one way to play it, variety is the spice of life when a sweet craving hits! Don’t be disheartened and take note, there is a world to discover beyond grapes and carrots, and it includes activated nuts and raw food snacks amongst other delights. On the hunt for healthy substitutes, I am shortlisting options below for anyone else struggling to snack healthily (as I have before) and keen to find tasty alternative to fruits and crackers.
