Snacks are not only a tasty way to keep your energy level stable throughout the day, but some research indicates that snacking consistently throughout the day (as opposed to indulging in three large meals) may even speed up your metabolism. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of our best offbeat ideas to satisfy your next snack craving below.

  

Healthy Snacks

  

When hunger hits during the day, it’s important to have snacks ready. However, all too often the first thing we reach for is a bag of candy or chocolate. These treats are full of artificial additives and are packed full of sugar. It’s important to know that there’s plenty of natural alternatives that still taste delicious, and will satisfy your sweet tooth.

Vegetarian Snacks

  

Party snacks are a dime a dozen, but, vegetarian party snacks take a little more finesse to find. We have done our due diligence and found some unique and tasty snack ideas for your next party that are sure to please vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

Post-Workout Snacks

  

When you exercise, you tear down muscle tissue and burn fat. To get the most from your time at the gym, you have to feed your body the nutrition it needs to rebuild a better you. Start by picking up a couple of these post-workout snacks.

International Snacks

  

While it should be your goal, you simply can’t eat healthy and preservative-free all the time. Arm yourself with some unique junk food snacks that are exclusive to countries outside the U.S., to make sure you’re prepared the next time a snack attack strikes. You can buy these international snacks on Amazon, but you won’t be able to find them at your local supermarket or convenience shop, so we suggest buying these goodies in bulk.

Candy

While it may not be the healthiest of snack options, candy is delicious treat worthy of an occasional indulgence every now and again. Ditch the standard supermarket options, and opt for one of these exotic–and boozy–treats instead.
