Mexi Kale Chips…I cracked open a pack of potato chips yesterday for Stella and the smell nearly sent me over the edge…obvs the addiction is still very much there! These have been such a snack time saver and they are ridiculously easy to make….plus actual goodness and nutrients in them! If you don’t have a dehydrator, just pop in your oven, on the lowest setting, door slightly ajar and reduce cooking time until they are crispy. To make around 6 cups worth of these you’ll need… 8 large organic kale leaves, stems removed 1 jar of @tiopablonz salsa de pepita (so worth trying to get your hands on this as it turns the chips into like mini pizza bite flavour explosions…not exaggerating) 3 TBS nut butter, I find cashew is best and my first choice is @ceresorganics . Massage all the ingredients together in a bowl until the kale has softened and all full coated. Place on dehydrator trays and leave for 12-14 hours at 46 deg C. 🌱🌱🌱 . . . #vegan #f45 #f45challenge #fit #fitness #fitfood #cleaneating #vegansofig #healthyeating #plantbased #veganrecipes #sarahtanner #snacks #healthysnacks #kalechips #STealth #wellness #wholefoods #organic #veganfood #veganism #yum #tasty

While trying to avoid carbs, the one thing most people miss munching on are chips. The satisfactory crunch of potato chips can really make you want to go back to eating carbs but there is a healthy alternative to it—kale chips! You can easily buy pre-made kale chips at a grocery store or even make some for yourself at home. All you need to do is throw some kale leaves in some olive oil and your preferred seasoning. Bake the batch at 350 degrees till it’s crisp and you have a delish healthy snack ready for yourself. Just make sure you cut out the stems or your chips won’t crisp up.

2. Celery And Peanut Butter

If you’re a peanut butter fan then this snack will win your heart over! All you need to do is fill up two medium-sized celery stalks with some peanut butter and indulge in it. It’s super simple and quick to make, plus it won’t mess up with your no-carb diet either! Sounds like a win-win deal to me.

The world has used avocados in so many ways, right from making ice-creams out of it to guacamole. And if you thought this list wouldn’t include avocado, you’re wrong! For a low or no-carb diet, one of the tastiest snacks you can go for are pickled avocados.  They’re easy to make too, all you need to do is add a few avocados in a vinegar-based mixture and your snack is ready.

4. Steamed Eggs

The Chinese swear by this comfort food and you’ll join the team once you taste it too. The usual egg dishes can sometimes become boring, which is why you ought to try out steamed eggs, especially if you’re on a low or no-carb diet. And the best part about it is, it tastes like a rich custard!

5. Pecans

If you’re not in the mood for a meal, you can snack on pecans without worrying about carbs! They have a buttery flavour and can be eaten raw as well. If you want to add a bit of flavour to it, you can roast them or add some salt and herbs to it.
