My Favorite Go-To MS-Friendly Snacks

Looking for healthy snacks that are anti-inflammatory and help you manage your MS symptoms? The following are my favorite go-to MS-friendly snacks to help me power through the day and minimize my MS symptoms.

Guacamole and Veggies

Guacamole is definitely a popular snack, but did you know it is also good for fighting your MS symptoms? Because avocados contain healthy fats, guacamole is a perfect pick-me-up snack. Skip the chips and use veggies to dip in your guac for added nutrients and antioxidants.

Pineapple with Turmeric

I rave about pineapple with turmeric every chance I get because it works. Both pineapple and turmeric are anti-inflammatory so can decrease your pain and other symptoms. Plus, they taste delicious together. Just sprinkle a teaspoon of turmeric on some pineapple chunks for a perfect MS-friendly snack.

Fruit and Sunbutter or Almond Butter

A lot of people are sensitive to peanuts, but sunbutter and almond butter make great alternatives. They are high in healthy fats to give you energy and fight cravings. Pair them with an apple for added sweetness and energy.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes are anti-inflammatory so they can decrease your pain and MS symptoms. Plus, they taste delicious. Make them up ahead of time and throw them in the freezer so you can have a quick snack whenever the urge strikes. Just throw a few fries on a baking sheet with a drizzle or mist of olive oil for a quick homemade snack.

Fig and Berry Pecan Bars

Looking for a paleo-friendly snack? Make some fig and berry pecan bars. Just combine dried figs and berries, pecans, and unsweetened coconut flakes with coconut oil and just enough honey or maple syrup to hold it all together. Feel free to add any other ingredients that sound delicious (cinnamon, flax seed, etc.). Press mixture into a pan and chill for half an hour before cutting up. Store in the fridge or a cool dark place for up to a week.
