The Snack Queens with Alex Beggs and Andrea Hernandez

If you’re anything like us, it’s been a year of heavy snacking, and we’re NOT mad about it. Snacks are one of life’s greatest joys, and despite what your health teacher may have told you, eating between meals can be a perfectly healthy habit. But as the “functional snack” industry booms, how do we know what’s deliciously healthyish and what’s B.S.? On this episode of the Healthyish podcast, Amanda Shapiro brings in Andrea Henandez, the mind behind the cult-favorite Snaxshot newsletter, and BA senior staff writer and in-house snack expert Alex Beggs to talk about how snacking is taking over our diets and what they’ve been loving and tossing from the snack aisle these days. There may even be some on-mic taste-testing.

Welcome to Food People, a show from Bon Appétit made by, for, and about people who love food. Each week, BA’s editorial director Amanda Shapiro asks a serious or not-so-serious food question: What’s the best way to grill chicken? Can meal prep be less terrible? Are air fryers worth the hype? In search of answers or at least a spirited debate, she’ll bring in staffers, chefs, writers, and experts from across the culinary universe. Expect strong opinions, tons of recipe inspiration, and more food puns than we'd like to admit.
