roasted edamame

chickpeas

roasted Kale

seaweed!!!

isn't there anything easier?

What is your healthy go to snack recipe?

I like roasted red pepper hummus. We also eat broccoli and dip, grape tomatoes, deviled eggs made with hummus. Fruit in the summer time is great. So are homemade fruit smoothies especially when made with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

I love peanut butter but it has so many calories I avoid it!

I do love baked kale and spinach chips...but it is a PITA LOL

My favorite go to is popcorn...I have a ton of Amish Non-GMO Organic Hull-less popcorn....(ended up with 16 lbs LOL) I top it with coconut oil and brewer's yeast. I could eat that all day!


ETA I also like to dry red peppers, spinach , carrots or whatever veggies I have on hadn and grind them up fine as a popcorn topping too....

pickle spears wrapped in nitrate free roast beef
celery with a wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese
cinnamon dusted apple slices
mustard egg salad with diced celery and dill
smoked oysters  on cucumber slices
mini snack peppers are good with Laughing Cow Cheese too or dipped in hummus

Most of these are in a book I just got.  I'm not sure if I'll like the smoked oysters on cucumber though, lol.  I'll give it a try though.

It does have a lot of calories so I try to use about half a normal serving
