Three Great Snacks From Snack Girl Readers
June 9, 2014 16 Comments
A few weeks ago, Snack Girl asked for photos of favorite snacks with my book in the background.
I received some great snack ideas and posted are the winners of snack packs from Natural Delights Medjool dates.
The photo above is from Jenny:
My favorite snack isn't very complex or sexy, but I love a handful of almonds, walnuts, and broken pieces of Brown Rice Triscuits with Sea Salt and Black Pepper. I feel like a rock star when I get those Omega 3s each day!
These two recipes are from Jeanne. She should get extra credit for submitting two don’t you think?
Baked Lime Tortilla Chips
4 corn tortillas
Kosher salt, or coarse sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rub both sides of each tortilla with the cut lime. Stack the tortillas and cut into 1/8ths using a pizza cutter or large knife. Spread into a single layer on a broiler pan. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake for 10 minutes, or until crisp and just starting to brown at the edges. Let cool fully before storing in an airtight container.
Creamy Salsa Dip
2 tablespoons salsa (I used salsa from a jar, but you could use homemade)
2 tablespoons cottage cheese purée (recipe below)
Mix until combined and serve with a side of chips.
The base for the creamy salsa is made by pureeing 1/2 cup low fat (1%) cottage cheese with 1/2 tablespoon cider vinegar (May add more to taste) and white part only of a finely diced scallion.
This also makes an excellent low fat topping for a baked potato.
