Because I’m Always Thinking Food…
7 Tue, 2010 § 9 Comments
Whether we’re romping around nature’s playground, saying goodbye or just adventuring it up, I’m constantly looking for yummy snacks that keep us fueled without weighing us down.
Here are some of our favorites:
Roasted Chickpeas & Pistachios, simply salted or amped up with herb seasonings
Sliced Baked Tofu [Wild Wood Organics makes “sprouted” varieties],
Whole Wheat Crackers [These are my favorite! They are like a cross between a stoneground & a graham cracker — YUM — I think they are Barbara’s Wheatines.]
& a little leftover Roasted Kabocha Squash tucked in there.
[Gingerbread] Quinoa Granola
& fruit make for a great energy boost.
When we’re out all day, sometimes we need a bit more.
“Salads” are perfect.
A nice summer one of Quinoa with Chickpeas, Tomatillos & chopped, dried Apricots.
Another favorite is Lentils & Apples tossed with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar for a splash of flavor & to keep the apples from browning. Add a touch of salt & pepper.
What are your favorite active-day snacks?
