10 Healthy Cold Weather Snacks That Will Warm Your Belly and Heart

Snacks that warm you up are an ideal food to eat during winter, no matter if you’re snacking after school, midday or late at night. Here are 10 ideas for winter snacks that pack a nutritional punch.

1. Vegetable Chips

Slice sweet potatoes, beets and parsnips thinly, arrange them on a baking sheet, and drizzle them with olive oil and seasonings before baking them to warm winter snack perfection.

2. Chicken Pizza

Buy whole wheat pizza dough and stretch it into shape. Top with cooked, diced chicken, salsa and pepper jack cheese before baking.  

3. Bone Broth

Make it yourself or buy it in the store, this magnesium- and collagen-rich, slow-cooked broth makes a fast snack that will warm you up in no time. Heat it up and add it to a bowl or a mug for instant warmth.

4. Jalapeno Poppers

This winter snack has a spiciness to warm you from the inside. Coat fresh jalapenos in plain Greek yogurt and shredded cheese. Sprinkle the poppers with whole grain breadcrumbs and bake them until they’re crunchy.  

5. Matcha Latte

Sometimes a warm cup of tea is snack enough. Try it with a little almond milk or coconut milk for a satisfying beverage that’s sure to chase away the chill.

6. Ricotta Toast

For fast, warm, nutritious snacks, start with some toasted whole grain bread. Top it with some ricotta, diced fruit, chopped nuts and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

7. Spiced Nuts

Talk about simple warm winter snacks. Spread your favorite nuts – almonds, walnuts, cashews and pecans — in a bowl along with a drizzle of olive oil and spices before baking.
