Let’s face it: for the past year, none of us have been zooming around as much as we used to. We’re just Zooming. Which often means working from home and being more sedentary than a doorstop. But that doesn’t mean your healthy snacks have to taste like said doorstop.
We’ve rounded up five tasty, suggestions for healthy snacks to get you fueled up without all the fat and calories of the usual fare. (In moderation, of course.) Which ones will you try?

Oatmeal doesn’t have to be boring. Each nourishing cup of Bob’s Red Mill Classic is packed with organic rolled oats, chia seeds, flax seeds and salt, and that’s it! Unless you decide to add some fresh fruit, such as blueberries or fresh peaches, which would be a great idea because then you’d get even more vitamins in every bite.

These beet chips can’t be beat! (Yes, we said it…) These salty snacks are for fans of the potato chip who love the crunch but hate the paunch. These dehydrated beet chips pack a wallop of protein and fiber (4 and 7 grams, respectively) and the only ingredient is organic beets (if you go with the Naked variety). They also offer Sea Salt and Pickled. Yum!

Okay, so chocolate isn’t exactly a skinny-snack. Buuuuut… nutritionists do say that dark chocolate and almonds are the best combo if you’re going to have a sweet-tooth. Taza is tres tasty, and it’s totally organic and vegan. Tazo stone-grinds their cacao beans because less processing means more bold chocolate flavor and texture. Amaze Bars pair almonds, coconut, maple, and more, and you can choose dark chocolate percents from 60% to 95%.
