Easy Snack Ideas

Easy Snack Ideas

Anyone else a big snacker? I love a good meal but I also love to snack throughout the day. I tend to crave salty and sweet, which gets me in trouble when I have cookies or chips around ūüėČ. I’ve put together a few of my favorite delicious and easy snacks. I hope you enjoy!

Rice Cakes + Tea: Quaker Oat’s Gluten Free rice cake topped with Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter, banana slices and sprinkled with Safe + Fair’s Chocolate Granola. I paired this with Adagio’s Peach Oolong and added in a splash of lemon ginger juice that I get from my local yoga studio.

Coco Whip + Berries: So Delicious’ Dairy Free coconut whipped topping paired with fresh berries is a great snack and dessert!

Banana Logs: I’m sure you’ve heard of the kid snack known as ants on a log (which is still delicious to eat as an adult in case you were wondering). I’ve made my own twist on the snack and call them ‘Banana Logs’. I thinly slice a banana and spread Justin’s Peanut Butter. Top with whatever you’re in the mood for: chia seeds, granola, chocolate, fruit, etc.

Blueberry Lavender Almond Hot Chocolate

Blueberry Lavender Almond Hot Chocolate

Looking for a delicious drink to help you warm up during the crazy winter weather? After taking a trip to Trader Joe’s, I found this Blueberry Lavender Almond Beverage. I typically use almond milk in my coffee, but today I was craving chocolate (but then again, when am I not?), so I opted for a hot cocoa drink instead.¬†
You will need: 
Hot Chocolate Mix
Saucepan 
Mug
Any toppings you typically like add to your hot chocolate
Directions:
In a saucepan, add Blueberry Lavender Almond Beverage (1 cup per serving). Once the almond milk is heated, add in hot chocolate mix and stir well. Serve in a mug and add any additional toppings! 

Stay warm and enjoy!
XOXO,

Quick + Healthy Breakfast

Quick + Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast doesn’t have to be difficult (and if you’re like me you enjoy it for dinner or a snack). One of my favorite things to make is a breakfast quesadilla. It’s quick and easy to make and you can customize it based off of your liking (or what you have in the house)! You will need flour or corn tortillas, eggs (I either do scrambled or a fried egg), vegetables and arugula.¬†
Try it out for yourself and don’t forget to tag me in your photos on Instagram @geenicolette

Happy eating!
