Curious about the latest snack  trends in the food industry? Look no further. The Food Channel recently released its top ten snack trends. The trends are supposed to help inspire those making lunches for school or work. I’ve based  my trends off of theirs, and found tons of delicious recipes to go with each. Try making one, or find your own way to incorporate the trend into your lunch.

Smaller, With More Value – Snacks filled with protein are becoming very popular. Think mini-burgers and chicken wraps.

Chipotle Sliders
Asparagus Wrap
Cream Cheese Wraps

Tons of Nuts – Mix some of your favorite nuts, like cashes or walnuts, with other bold flavors, like fruits, chocolate or vanilla. Snack on some granola too.

Walnut Crispies
Southwestern Cashews
Pecan Crisps

Bars – You pretty much find any type of granola bar nowadays. Options include dairy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, soy-free, cholesterol-free, trans-fat-free, and casein-free varieties.

Granola Bars
Oat Granola Bars
Fat-Free Honey Granola Bars

Yogurt – Healthy yogurts, like those from Greece and Iceland, have really hit the mainstream because of their health value. This is one of the most nutritious snacks out there!

Greek Yogurt Dessert with Honey and Strawberries
Yogurt Parfait
Yogurt Biscuits

Bold Flavors – Not everyone is a fan of this trend. But if you can handle some major hot and spicy flavors, this is the one for you.

Spicy Popcorn on the Grill

    I don’t get it, chips are hardly healthy, tons of calories even if baked compared with other snack choices, hard to keep control on calories. For me chips are not snacks, are indulgencies, maybe twice a year.

    I’m a big fan of mini-burgers and chicken wraps. In fact I prefer a little taste of everything for dessert too.
