One of the questions I get often from my clients is – WHAT CAN I SNACK ON? (LOL) we are always looking for a tasty, HEALTHY snack, huh…
Well here are some options, as you transition to animal-free snacks:
Hummus is a favorite go-to for me. It is an excellent high-protein meal that can be eaten with carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, radishes, zucchini strips or spread on bread and topped with cucumbers, red onion & sprouts. Hummus was clutch for me when my family and I were on the Go Give Love Initiative across the US because it is inexpensive and can be found in most grocery stores and Wal-Mart (I just checked the ingredients because I am mad picky).
Whole Wheat Pita Chips can easily be made by cutting whole wheat pita bread into triangles and put on a cookie sheet. Roast at 400 until crispy. Then you can serve with salsa or hummus – good ole’ hummus.
Baked sweet potato – Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene (google benefits). Pop on in the oven and bake and enjoy. Slice and roast them with some cinnamon.
Avocado on Whole Wheat Toast
Slice half an avocado and layer on toast, season with sea salt, red pepper flakes, garlic, whatever makes it tasty for you.
Edamame is a snap and pop snack. This snack can be purchased already cooked or fresh. If fresh to cook simply take about a pound of edamame, 5 – 6 cups water – Bring water to a boil in large pot. Add edamame and return to boil. Cook 7 – 10 minutes. Or you can get shelled, frozen beans and cook according to package directions.
Homemade trail mix – throw some raisins, dates, walnuts, almonds, pepitas, dried fruit of choice and enjoy.
Fresh fruits and veggies are ALWAYS a GREAT option.
