Savory Snacks Sure to Please
1. ½ Avocado with Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
No explanation needed! Avocados are an excellent source of healthy fats. Fueling up with ½ an avocado + my favorite seasoning, Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, makes the perfect quick & easy snack. Plus, you’ll be full for hours!
2. Low-Carb Charcuterie Board Made Easy!
A good charcuterie board is made with love...and lots of fun ingredients! When I’m in a rush, I like to choose 4 elements to highlight in my low-carb charcuterie board: 1 meat alternative, 1 cheese, 1 low-carb fruit, and 1 nut.
The combination I’m obsessed with right now is: mushroom jerky, asiago cheese, raspberries, and unsalted cashews. What are your go-to charcuterie board faves?
3. Avocado Deviled Eggs with A Twist
Deviled eggs are rich, creamy, and delish! Sometimes I like to lighten things up a bit, and instead of using the classic mayo, I combine egg yolks with avocado, lemon juice, and paprika. Drizzle with sriracha for a spicy twist!
4. Roasted/Air Fried Kale Chips
The key to a good kale chip is the seasoning and the “crispiness factor.” Am I right? Bonus! Kale chips are super simple to make. Toss your kale with olive oil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle your preferred seasoning of choice. I like onion powder, garlic powder, and my top secret ingredient: turmeric powder! This golden, warm spice will give your kale chip a real kick, and an anti-inflammatory boost! Bake for 20 minutes or until crispy.
Oh So Sweet, No-Added Sugar Snacks
1. Ants on a Log
“Ants on a Log,” otherwise known as celery stalks smeared with creamy peanut butter and raisins is not only a quick & easy low-carb snack, but a fun one for the entire family! Pack these for your next social distancing picnic and enjoy the sweet, yet healthy crunch.
2. Cottage Cheese W. All the Fixin’s
An oldie but a goodie! Jazz up your ordinary bowl of cottage cheese with fresh berries, nut butter, and spices. I like to add a spoonful of peanut butter or cashew butter, strawberries, and raspberries, and of course a sprinkle of heart-healthy cinnamon!
3. Keto Nut Clusters
I love chowing down on a handful of nuts. But before I know it, I’ve eaten the whole bag! Anyone else resonate? These Keto Nut Clusters are the perfect portion size. To make these sweet & crunchy clusters, simply melt unsweetened dark chocolate chips in a big mixing bowl. Add almonds, pecans, walnut halves, and cashews until all the nuts are well-coated. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and start scooping the nut mixture onto the paper, 1 Tbsp at a time. Refrigerate for an hour, and voila! Your keto nut clusters are ready to go! 1 serving size = 2 nut clusters
4. 4-Ingredient Almond Butter Cookies
One of my fave indulgent snacks to nosh on are cookies! I like my cookie recipes quick, easy, and with minimal ingredients. Give this Almond Butter Cookie recipe a try. You won’t regret it.
