During this very unusual time in the world, we need satisfying snacks more than ever!
One way to keep meals & snacks craveable is to eat what’s in-season since that’s what we tend to naturally want. So…
Here are 6 of my favorite snacks with a focus on seasonal SPRING produce…
Sugar Snap Peas + Lemon Hummus
Sugar snap peas contain iron & vitamin K which are important for healthy blood.
HOW TO: Dip 1 cup of sugar snap peas into 4 tablespoons of store-bought lemon flavored hummus.
Jicama Sticks w/ Chili Powder + Pepitas
Jicama is high in inulin which is a gut-friendly prebiotic fiber.
HOW TO: Sprinkle chili powder onto 1 cup of jicama sticks and pair with 1/4 cup of pepitas.
Grapes + Brie
All colors of grapes are a natural source of antioxidants and they are 80% water to provide a sweet pop of hydration.
HOW TO: Put 1 cup of grapes and 1 ounce of brie on a mini cheese board. Enjoy!
Strawberries + Almond Butter
Just 8 strawberries have over 60% the daily dose of immune boosting vitamin C.
HOW TO: Spread 1.5 tablespoons of almond butter onto 8 strawberries. #pb&jvibes
Melon w/ Mint + Feta
Cantaloupe is packed w/ beta-carotene for healthy vision.
HOW TO: Garnish 1 cup of melon cubes w/ fresh mint leaves and serve with 1 ounce of feta cheese.
Radish Slices + Tzatziki
Radishes are in the same superfood family as broccoli & kale so it’s no surprise they may help decrease risk of high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes.
HOW TO: Dip 1 cup of sliced radishes into 4 tablespoons of store-bought tzatziki.
