You know what you are? You’re a health warrior. You are a bad a$$, take no batch cooking prisoners kind of person. Your fridge is on point. Your meals are Instagram worthy, but your snacks… your snacks are basic bitch status.
If you have another handful of nuts with an apple you might pull your hair out.
I take getting bored with food very seriously because you’re about three days away from eating whatever junk creates “variety” in your boring, nut snacking life. Then begins the pendulum swing of the weekday warrior and the weekend crusader.
Put the nuts away, I’m going to help you uplevel your snack game.
Here are a bunch of snack ideas that you may have never tried before (or tried six months ago and then forgot about them so ta-da! They are new again):
Cucumber Fancies - cucumber slices topped with hummus, dill, smoked salmon, and capers
Tapioca or Chia Pudding topped with all the goodies (hemp seeds, cacao nibs, chia seeds, fresh mango)
Veggies with a (5 min) Homemade Dressing - peanut sauce, romesco sauce, pesto, or many other dressings that keep you from eating hummus for the 1000th time. I get most of my dressings from the cookbook Salad Samurai.
Protein Pancakes - I make them in bulk and keep in the fridge, then top with almond butter as a snack
Brami Beans - These are more fun to eat than anything else, are packed with fiber and protein and guess what… they are not a nut!
Cucumber, Tomato, Basil Salad - Diced cucumber, tomato, basil, onion, EVOO, S&P, and lemon juice eaten with grain free/gluten free crackers (you can eat this with lima bean hummus to shake things up).
