Who says snacks can’t be both nutritious and delicious? Here are some of the best healthy snacks to store in your dorm room as you tackle your challenging year ahead!

These coconut treats are gluten-free, raw, vegan, and certified organic! Perfect for when you just want a little something sweet or an extra boost for those last few math problems. With flavors like chocolate, lemon, and matcha you’ll never get bored.

2. Vegetable Chips

We all love the feeling of biting into a potato chip. That crunch and salty flavor is hard to beat but too many can leave you feeling groggy and ready for a nap. Vegetable chips give you the same familiar feel without all the oil and sodium that weighs you down. With options like beets, carrots, and sweet potatoes you’ll get your chip fix with tons of nutrients to match! My favorite brand is Terra which can be found in most grocery stores.

3. Cashews

One of nature’s savory yet best healthy snacks. Cashews are the perfect afternoon pick-me-up, filled with tons of healthy fats to keep you satisfied until dinner. They also keep your cholesterol down at a healthy level and lower your risk for general cardiovascular diseases. A little salt, a little crunch, add in some heart health, what’s not to love?

4. Popcorn

Popcorn is a perfect snack with lots of fiber and more antioxidants than some fruits and veggies to keep your heart and stomach happy. Plus, it’s the only whole grain that’s 100% unprocessed! Brands like Skinny Pop, Buddha Popcorn, and Boomchickapop are some of the best on the market as far as nutritional value goes.

6. Coconut Chips

Fruits are one of the best healthy snacks, and coconuts are no exception. Coconuts have a ton of nutritional value like fiber, healthy fat, and a sweet flavor without all the sugar. Coconut chips are perfect for when you want a little something sweet without the guilt. I recommend the brand Dang. They’ve got flavors like caramel sea salt and special edition bacon keep you coming back for more.

7. Unsweetened Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is hands down one of the best things on this planet but sometimes the way it’s processed and the added sugar can make it less than perfect for our bodies. Organic, unsweetened peanut butter takes away the sugar and leaves you with all the good stuff like healthy fats that keep you full. I like the 365 brand. You ditch the sugar without the thick, grainy texture some unsweetened peanut butter can have. Some grocery stores even let you grind the peanuts yourself so you know exactly how your food is made.

8. 70% Dark Chocolate

Let’s be honest, chocolate is hard to resist. It’s rich, creamy, and all around good but it’s not always so good for nurturing your body. That’s where dark chocolate comes in! Chocolate with 70% or more cocoa content has benefits like magnesium, antioxidants, and lowers your blood pressure. Now we can all enjoy a little chocolate here in there (or every day) and feel good about what we’re feeding our bodies. Chocolove is always my go-to for their amazing flavor and creaminess but at the end of the day, all chocolate is good chocolate.
