I am trying to snack a little more...just wondering what some of your favorite snack combinations are?
My go to snacks have been...
Air popped popcorn sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with dill and freshly grated cheese
Crostinis with fig goat cheese and fig preserves
Honeycrisp apple slices dipped in ricotta with sprinkled with cinnimon and drizzled with honey
Lend me some more suggestions...
Another vote for figs in any form
Pita with hummus or labneh
Cashews (or really any kind of nut)--I prefer them roasted and unsalted.
Frico (fried rounds of grated, hard Italian cheese)
Crostini or toasted bread with olive tapenade
And those maddeningly addictive Japanese rice crackers that I have only once in a while because no matter how much I buy, they are all gone within a day or two.
Crostinis with brie and carmelized onions
A really fantasic chicken wing, fried naked (no breading) tossed wtih a my hot sauce & blue cheese dip
Popcorn with parm cheese and garlic salt
I also love a honecrisp apple, but with a hint of salt, will have to try the ricotta though
Smashed Avocado / bacon and toast
For me, roasted carrots sprinkled liberally with sea salt
Hard-boiled egg whites and any fruit (right now I'm on a persimmon kick or honeydew)
Cottage cheese mixed with cooked barley or brown rice, sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon
Baba Ghanous and pita
Quesadilla with whole wheat tortilla and low fat cheddar/jack cheeses
Scooped Potato skin filled with low fat cheese, cottage cheese and salsa or beans and salsa
Lentil Salad in a Pita
Roasted Sliced Peaches sprinkled with Cinnamon
I've just discovered figs. I love them for a snack, right out of the container. Something dark about their sweetness. Haven't tried Calimyrna figs yet, but the mission figs I've been eating are very good.
cucumber slices alone or with homemade hummus
low-salt roasted almonds (just a handful)
apples, usually gala
watermelon wedge (I live in FL)
hint of salt Triscuits with goat cheese
