TOP TEN TUESDAY: Snack Ideas
Trail Mix. Dates, almonds, and dark chocolate make the perfect satisfying combo of natural sugars/carbs/fat.
Green Tea Latte. While Starbucks’ version of this drink may be full of crap and gunky sugars, there are ways to make a healthy version of this drink. https://www.japancentre.com/en/recipes/16-matcha-green-tea-latte-hot-or-iced <– here’s one of my favourite recipes.
Parfait. I make mine with soy yogurt, paleo granola, and berries.
PB Banana Toast. Natural peanut butter on whole grain bread with sliced banana is one of my favourites.
Fruit Infused Water. I have one of those strainer water bottles to put berries in. I don tend to drink enough H2O, and it just makes it more exciting.
Veggies with Hummus. Carrots and celery are my favs, and I love hummus. It’s one of the healthiest and most natural spreads, and one of the only dairy-free ones.
Dark Chocolate Almonds. I don’t eat them often, but there is a brand of almonds covered in dairy-free dark chocolate that I love.
Ants on a Log. I love celery with almond butter and raisins. Have you noticed a trend? Most of my favs include nut butter in some way.
Homemade Energy Bites. Mix 1/2 cup chopped dates, 1/2 cup peanut butter, and 1/4 oats and form into 12 balls. Have 1 or 2 for a pick-me-up.
Roasted Chickpeas. Toss canned chickpeas with oil and either cinnamon sugar (sweet lovers) or salt and cayenne and bake on a sheet at 400 degrees for about half an hour.
