Finding vegan snacks when you're not at a specialty store may seem challenging, but there are actually tons of products already sitting on the shelves of grocery stores that will do the trick. We make it even easier by highlighting our favorite vegan eats you can find at nearly any supermarket.
Made from woven whole grain wheat, Triscuits have been vegan long before being vegan was "in." Pair it with your favorite creamy hummus for an even more filling snack.
Simple Truth Roasted Sea Salt Pistachios ($1):
Snag a few of these individual servings of pistachios by the checkout aisle, then keep them in your car, at your desk, or in your purse for whenever you need some protein and healthy fat. You can buy them shelled for extra convenience, but there's something pleasing about opening the pistachio shells yourself.
SkinnyPop Original Popcorn ($3):
At less than 40 calories per cup, this is a whole grain snack that will tame your hunger without ruining your appetite for dinner. If you can't find this brand, look for popcorn with a short ingredient list — popcorn, oil, and salt should be it.
Emerald 100 Calorie Packs Almonds ($4):
Raw or roasted and lightly salted, almonds are one snack we always have on hand, especially when they come in pre-portioned packs.
KIND Almond & Coconut Fruit & Nut Bar ($2):
Granola bars are always an on-the-go snacking option, but you have to watch out for hidden dairy ingredients. Look for bars that get their protein from nuts, not ingredients like egg whites and whey.
Simple Truth Organic Original Instant Oatmeal ($2):
Individual servings of instant oatmeal are a life-saver when you need a healthy boost. Look for those without any added sugar for a nutritious dose of fiber and whole grains that'll keep you going until your next real meal.
Wasa Multi Grain Crispbread ($4):
Don't overlook this classic crispbread, which you can find with the crackers at most grocery stores. It's a crunchy whole grain base that's delicious with creamy mashed avocado and sliced cherry tomatoes on top.
Stretch Island Fruit Original Apple Fruit Leather ($1):
Craving something sweet? Fruit leather is a nutritious way to sate your desire if you don't have any fresh fruit on hand. You don't have to worry about scanning the label for gelatin (found in many fruit snacks) either.
La Mexicana Medium Salsa ($3):
Look in your store's refrigerated section for fresh salsa. It has less sodium and added sugar than shelf-stable jarred versions, and it's one of the tastier ways to get in a serving of veggies (along with your blue corn tortilla chips, of course!).
Whole Medjool Dates ($4):
Because of their high potassium content, dates are a handy post-workout snack. They're intensely sweet and satisfying, so just one or two will hit the spot.
