1. ZOE ROSE (almost) famous vegan + gf banana bread (recipe below)
So you'll see that my snacks are mostly vegan ( as is most of my diet, although I do eat the occasional fish or cheese!). I find that I feel my best when I focus on eating whole, organic, plant-based foods as much as possible, and typically go for almond or cassava flour based bread/crackers/chips with minimal, clean ingredients. If it isn't obvious, I LOVE fruit, Avocado, and chocolate. Obviously this is what works for me, and nutrition is never one size fits all! But if you are looking to spice up your snack game - definitely give some of these a try and let me know what your favorite snacks are!
