Many COVID-19 restrictions finally are easing up. However, if you’re fighting cancer or in remission, you still may be spending more time at home than other people. Faced with ongoing social isolation, you might be feeling the increased urge to snack during the day. If this is the case, you want to stock your pantry with healthy foods to stay well during the pandemic and beyond.


From sweet to savory, here are some suggestions for nutritious snacks to keep in your home throughout your journey with cancer.


Choose snacks high in fiber and protein. They will keep you satisfied longer so you’re less likely to come back or overindulge. Examples include nuts, Greek yogurt, berries, muesli, and granola.


Peanut butter is a healthy option. Try it on celery, apples, whole wheat crackers, or a banana.


Include veggies in your snack options. A Caprese salad with tomato, mozzarella, and basil is a delicious choice. Cottage cheese or ricotta cheese can be mixed with honey, vanilla, and a bit of cinnamon for a different flavor. You gain much more protein from this sweet snack than you would from ice cream.

Make smoothies in smaller portions. Include greens with a lot of omegas, such as avocadoes or hemp seeds. Make your smoothies calorie dense or light, depending on your needs. Get creative with the fruits and vegetables you add.


Fighting cancer requires emotional support from others. If you or someone you know is battling the disease, contact Chix 4 a Cause. Find out more about our Gifts of Love program at chix4acause.org today.
