Cinnamon spiced banana roll – This simple snack or even breakfast is pretty easy to make. Just get whole wheat tortilla and put a banana with a touch of cinnamon on top, you can add all natural nut butter in between too or maybe if you need something a little heavier, a whole wheat bread that you’ve flattened out would work too, although this takes a bit more effort, personally it seems quite a bit more substantial to me. This is delicious, easily stored and agrees with clean eating and pretty much any vegan diet plans out there.
Hummus dip – Well hummus is pretty awesome and can be made into a dip for pretty much any raw vegetable, this is a clean eating snack for the books.
