3 Super-Easy Raw Food Snack Ideas!July 20, 2012 8:18 am
So many think that eating FullyRaw is too hard or that it takes too much time. I’m here to tell you that it is as EASY as eating fruits and veggies! Sometimes, you don’t even need to prepare them! If you are trying to go raw or even just eat healthier, it’s a time-saver because you don’t even need to take the time to cook them. Many Raw Foods come in the form of finger foods, so they are easily transportable and not messy. This comes at a huge advantage to us when we may need to eat on the go or at work when we are dressed in nice clothing. Not to mention that raw foods are low in calorie but also high in water content, so you will feel full after you eat them! They are nutrient dense, which means that even if you eat just a snack, you will feel satisfied. Here are 3 SUPER-EASY Raw Food Snack Ideas!
1) Any finger food fruits like grapes, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, etc. are easy to carry in Tupperware containers or even merely in the plastic pint containers in which they come. Because they are finger foods, you will not need a knife to cut them. All you need to do is pop them in your mouth! No mess, no squirts, no juice…you’re in the safe zone! Grapes are higher in calorie, and you can even make an entire meal out of eating merely a bag of grapes. This practically fat free meal is about 450 calories, and it will help give you energy throughout the day. Also, each of these are naturally sweet, so you will not need any condiments to add to them. Too easy!
2) Okra is one of my FAVORITE raw food snacks…EVER! It’s crunchier than pop-corn and it lower in calorie than broccoli! This means that you can munch on it all day and never gain weight. If you are feeling the need to chew, grab okra! Many people are afraid of okra because they think it to be slimy. I am here to tell you that when it is eaten raw, it is crunchy and SWEET! Please give it a try! I cannot tell you how many people I have won over this week just with one bite. Okra is so easy to carry around. Merely pack it in a ziploc bag and carry it with you throughout the day! Too easy!
3) Kale Cherry Tomato Tacos are my signature snack! Many people have difficulty eating kale until I show them this super-easy snack recipe. Simply take a cherry tomato or grape tomato and wrap it in a leaf of kale (no stem). Stick it in your mouth and let the grape tomato flavor burst into your mouth with the juice of the green. It’s better than V8 juice and WAY more nutritious. Give it a try! It’s a mini salad on the go! Too easy!
I hope that you try these super easy raw food snack ideas! Hopefully, they help you to see that eating raw can be fast, clean, simple, satisfying and fun!
