Snack Ideas

Here are some of my favorite snack ideas.

Sliced apple and almond butter (check for sugar gluten).

Veggies and hummus.

Tortilla chips (check for gluten) and guacamole and/or salsa (check for sugar/gluten).

Celery and almond butter.

Lentil curls from Trader Joe's.

Almond butter & banana quesadillas:

Take two corn tortillas (check for gluten)
Spread almond butter over one tortilla
Add banana slices on top of that
Put another tortilla on top.
Fry with just a teensy bit of oil until crispy on both sides.
This is one of my favorites if I am craving something sweet. It will definitely hit the spot!

Baked banana:

Take one (or two! or more!) bananas and peel. Slice down the middle, lengthwise.
Place in oven-safe cooking dish.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and just a dash of nutmeg.
Drizzle with a splash of lemon juice.
Bake at 400 for 15 - 20 minutes.
Serve warm.
(You can dice apples and add them to this, too. This is a recipe that I used to make with butter and sugar. I'm telling you, it tastes just as good without the added sugar and fat.)

What do you like to eat for healthy snacks?
