Healthy Sweet Snack Ideas: What Are The Best Healthy Snacks?

Here at Grenade®, we love a healthy snack. Not the boring, tasteless kind but the kind that fuel your active lifestyle, satisfy your taste buds and provide you with tons of nutritional benefits.

Whether it’s a quick midday pick me up you need or a breakfast option that’ll keep you full right through till lunchtime, we’ve got a healthier snack alternative for you.

Here’s the lowdown on our snacking range - enjoy!

What are healthier snacks?

Healthier snacks are a great option for those who want to curb their cravings throughout the day or for those who simply want to pack in healthier calories. Carb Killa® bars are a great example of a healthier snack; they’re packed with protein, helping to keep you feeling fuller for longer, and they’re low in sugar, making them a great alternative to your usual sweet treat.

 What healthy snacks should I eat when hungry?

There are a number of different healthier snacks to choose from. Whether you’re keen to load up on protein, cut down on sugar, or in need of a snack to boost your energy during the day, there are lots of healthier options to choose from. Protein bars and shakes, as well as beef jerky, hard-boiled eggs, and Greek yogurt, are all great for those eager to pack in the protein. Snacks such as oat bars and peanut butter are ideal if an energy kick is what you’re after, while Carb Killa® low sugar bars are great for those cutting back on the sweet stuff. They include less than 2g of sugar but certainly don’t compromise on taste!

I just want a chocolate bar! Are there any healthier alternatives?

If you want the chocolate bar, have the chocolate bar – life’s all about balance, right? But if you’re looking for a low sugar, high protein alternative to your fave sweet treat then the Carb Killa® protein bar is the bar for you. With a delicious chocolate coating and a thick caramel layer, Grenade® Carb Killa® low sugar, high protein bars will curb those cravings without loading your body with unnecessary amounts of sugar. With less than 2g of the sweet stuff and over 20g of protein, you can enjoy guilt-free indulgence.

What about healthy, vegan and gluten free snacks?

Grenade® aim to cater to all life athletes, whatever their dietary needs. Packed full of nutty goodness, our Carb Killa® Go Nuts™ Vegan Protein bar is vegan-friendly and gluten free! Containing absolutely nuttin’ artificial, this vegan snack bar hits the healthy snacking mark but offers tons of flavour too. Pop this must-have bar in your lunchbox, gym bag or in your pocket so you’re always armed with a healthy snack when hunger strikes.

I lead a very active lifestyle – what are some healthier, filling snacks?

Oats are a great, slow-release carb, keeping you fuller for longer. But not everyone can stomach a bowl of porridge every time they're feeling a little peckish. Our Reload® protein flapjacks contain a balanced ratio of 2:1 carbs to protein so you can eat them at anytime. The carbs within these tasty bars are delivered through a complex, slow-release source (oats, of course), which takes the body longer to breakdown and result in energy being distributed over a long period of time. So if you're looking for a snack to carry you through to your next meal, Reload®  is your best bet.

How can I add some indulgence to my everyday snacks?

Looking for a healthier alternative to your usual sweet snack? You’ve probably heard about our Carb Killa® protein spreads – if not, where have you been? A tasty topping on toast or an indulgent filling for croissants, bagels and crepes (just like these beauties, created by Grenade® ambassador Elkie Chiu), these jars of deliciousness are absolute game changers. If you're feeling particularly indulgent, you can always grab a spoon and dive straight in - this is definitely our favourite way to enjoy the spreads! Read our blog for more nutritious snack alternatives.

So, there you have it! We’re all for living a balanced lifestyle, which is why we believe snacking should be both healthy and fun. Because boring definitely won’t help you quash those cravings!
