The Paleo Diet is a way of eating that is focused around foods that can be found in nature, such as fruits, vegetables, and meats, in an attempt to avoid the over processed, carbohydrate loaded society that has been created over the last few decades. One great thing about the Paleo diet is that it is easy, with no necessary calorie counting or daily weigh-ins, and the number of available recipes and meal combinations is infinite.
Daily snacks are always recommended to keep the metabolism moving and quench any mid-day cravings. It is a good thing that there are so many Paleo snack recipes to choose from.
Cauliflower Popcorn is a great, healthy replacement to the typical favorite movie-food. Made from nothing but cauliflower heads, butter, and salt, and caramelized in the over until brown, this super simple treat is ready when your craving strikes.
Apple Chips, made from (you guessed it!) apples, can be seasoned with cinnamon if desired, but the apples by themselves make a delicious snack. This process takes a few hours, but only about ten minutes of effort. After slicing the apples and placing them in the oven, the only thing left to do is flip them half way through and wait for the finished product. These chis can be made and stored, meaning there is no need to remake them every time a craving hits. Make them at the beginning of the week and have a tasty snack for days!
If you’re looking for a last minute, on the go snack with no prep time, a prosciutto wrapped melon makes for a delicious salty and sweet combination. It is as simple as it sounds, find an in season melon (such as honey dew or cantaloupe) and wrap it in a piece of fresh prosciutto and viola, snack complete. A perfect food for those running out the door, or looking for a midnight snack, prosciutto and melons are both easy to find and store for the perfect occasion.
