Healthy Munchies

2 years, 5 months ago

What are some good healthy foods to munch on while experiencing the 420? I’m looking to shift away from my usual stoner foods of chips, chocolate, ice cream, candy and cookies. I know everyone is going to chime in with fresh fruits and vegetables. I don’t like eating those when I’m stoned. Still, there’s granola, nuts, dehydrated fruits. What are some other healthy foods to enjoy once the munchies kick in?

I make batches of protein balls with almond butter, vanilla protein, shredded coconut, walnuts, almonds or any nut & dark chocolate and refridgerate them. It’s a perfect munchie when craving something sweet. I’ve always found that watermelon taste great when I’m high. They have these healthier pizza’s at Publix, they’re “greenwise” (organic) and they’re awesome as a healthy cheat.

@ilooklikeawaterbottle, it’s funny you ask! I have been really considering making my own lately, but usually I just buy it at grocery stores or health shops. I think I am probably pretty spoiled living in Portland but I am sure you can find it around!

@ilooklikeawaterbottle, Your local organic grocery store should carry Kombucha. Be careful as to what brand you buy, it can be pretty hit or miss!

As for healthy munchies, kale chips are wonderful. Also, roasted chickpeas with a little bit of grill seasoning (weird, I know) and olive oil is to die for. Throw some basil, parmesan cheese, olive oil, pine nuts and sea salt into a food blender and you’ve got yourself pesto. Spread it on whole grain bread with tomato and mozzarella cheese.

If you’re not in the mood for making anything, mangos, tea (chai or green are my personal favorites), sliced tomato with salt and pepper are a few examples of really quick and delicious healthy munchies. Enjoy and get creative with it!

@oreilly, i know you said no fruits or veggies, but seriously caprese salad is sooo good especially in the summer when all the ingredients can be fresh!! slice some meaty lookin tomato and layer it with mozzarella and basil. drizzle if you please sir . it tastes better if you eat it outside and dance while you’re making it. pretending you’re in italy is optional

@dancingwithsaturn, what?! Where do you get that? It sounds dangerously good.

@ilooklikeawaterbottle, isn’t it amazing! I am hooked as well. What’s your favorite kind so far?

@collinsj2009, It’s made by peanut butter & co. They sell it at Publix either in the green wise section or the isle where you’d find the condiments, i think. I order it off soap.com bc, its free 2 day shipping and cheaper than buying it at the 5 bucks a tub that it is at Publix.

I find fresh fruit to be the best, you could dip it in 0% greek yogurt. Alternatively you can cut up some celery, bell peppers, cucumber and carrots to dip in health stuff like hummus or tzatziki :) real fruit candy is yummy, if you want carbs rice cakes with hummus are delish! Frozen yogurt is also awesome! I like edamame beans with some salt sprinkled on them i also enjoy veggie chips or dried fruit!

@oreilly, Mango is the food you are looking for because it tastes amazing and makes you more high as well.

If you go to a gas station, get naked juice instead of soda/energy drinks/etc

Omg I’m stoned right now & this is making me so damn hungry lol. Everything sounds good! Haha but be carful to much of a good thing can be bad. I’m a pretty healthy eating stoner who is vegetarian and I gained some weight because of the damn munchies but if your just looking for a better more nutritious snack those are all great alternatives. I roast my own seeds, pumpkin, sunflower ext. season them however you want from a spivey chili to sweet cinnamon. Taking a banana and sautéing it in a pan in some honey with cinnamon is good, making yummy fruit smoothies or juices. Omg & this one thing I make that is not really “healthy” but a better alternative to ice cream. I make my own ice cream sandwiches using gram crackers, spread a little bite of peanut butter and than a decent layer of whip cream and freeze it… You’ll be in heaven! :)
