Easy and Healthy RFL Snacks
Whether you’re heading out for a hike or you’re on your way to work, having easy, transportable and healthy snacks is a must for any RFL eater. You want to ensure you’re getting the calories you need to be energetic and take on your day, but you don’t want to be forced to eat unhealthy fast food or non-RFL items to get you there.
The truth is, if you want to see success on your new eating plan, you need to have TONS of healthful, nutritious food on hand. So when you get hungry or have a craving, an easy, RFL snack is just a few feet away.
Not sure what RFL snacks you should keep in your pantry or fridge? Here are just a few of my favorites:
- Homemade Trail Mix – This one’s super easy. Just grab a bag of almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and your favorite dried berries. Divide these up into small baggies of trail mix and pile them up in your pantry for an easy, on-the-go-snack.
- Turkey Roll-ups – Grab some sliced turk ey breast, a few toothpicks, and your favorite veggies, and make some homemade roll-ups. My favorite combo is turkey and avocado. Make sure to store them in the fridge when you’re done, and eat them by the end of the week so they’re fresh!
- Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus – Take a full bunch of asparagus and roast them in a pan or on the grill. Once they’ve cooled, wrapped them in a slice of prosciutto and store in an air-tight Tupperware container.
- Deviled Eggs – Deviled eggs are a delicious snack. Unfortunately, made the traditional way (with mayonnaise), they’re not RLF-friendly. Instead, mix the yolks with homemade guacamole and stuff the eggs with that. It’s filling and super easy to grab as you’re heading out the door.
- Sweet Potato Fries – Chop one large sweet potato into thick, steak-cut fries. Toss them in a bowl with some olive oil and a little sea salt (or you can even try cinnamon for a sweeter taste), and baked them in the oven on 450 for about 20 minutes. Be sure to flip them halfway through. You can also make fries or even chips with other veggies, like zucchinis and squash.
- Baked Apples or Peaches – If you’ve got a sweet tooth, baked apples and peaches are a delicious and fast snack. Just cut the fruit in half, take out the core or pit, and sprinkle the top with cinnamon. Place on a baking sheet and pop in the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes. Pretty soon, you’ll have a sweet, healthy treat!
There you have it! Some quick, easy and, most importantly, delicious snacks for a healthy spring! Want more great RFL-friendly recipes or ideas? Check back every Wednesday!
