Snacks that are actually good for you.

ham and egg cups

Ham and egg cups are cute little quiches that can serve as a filling, on the go breakfast; as party appetizers; or as a snack. They are very good warm, at room temperature, and even cold straight out of the fridge. The big advantage of using ham slices as “crust” is not just the added flavor, but also reduced risk of sticking to the muffin tin compared with standard egg muffins.

microwave sweet potatoes

It’s no wonder sweet potatoes have become the darling of the nutrition-conscious Paleo community. They’re high in carbs, but they are very nutritious. A smallish, 7-ounce sweet potato contains 940mg of potassium, 800% of your daily vitamin A requirement, 65% of vitamin C, half your Manganese requirement and a third of vitamin B6. Sweet potatoes are also incredibly delicious, and can be “baked” in the microwave with incredible results.

broccoli fritters

What a fun way to eat broccoli! These baked broccoli fritters work as a tasty snack, as a healthy lunch, or as a vegetarian dinner when served with a salad. I make them with almond meal, to keep the carbs down and keep them gluten-free, but you can use breadcrumbs instead. The serving size listed is for a snack – double it if you plan to serve these broccoli fritters as a main dish.

gluten free cheese biscuits

These cheese biscuits are gluten free and low carb, but they are not low on flavor. Tender and cheesy, with a pleasant subtle kick from the cayenne, they’re great for breakfast, as a snack, or as a side to chili.

baked apple chips

Delicious baked apple chips, flavored with cinnamon. Patience is key – you’ll need to bake these apple chips for a looong time at a low temperature – but your reward, sweet-tangy dried apple slices that have no added sugar and are not just tasty but also good for you – will be well worth it. A great recipe to make on a cold winter weekend when you’re home anyway.
