Chocolate:

  • Organic cacao bar made of 75% or more cacao

  • Avocado/chocolate pudding
  • Blackbean brownies

Sweets:

  • Paleo cookies (see recipes)
  • Dates and nut butter
  • Smoothie – quality protein powder, berries, nut butter, avocado
  • Baked Bananas
  • Goji berries
  • Mulberries – Nativas brand

Crunchy/Salty:

  • Crunchy veggies – carrots, celery, cucumbers, sugar snap peas
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Mary’s Gone Crackers – gluten free crackers, pretzels
  • Kale or Plantain Chips- home-made or store bought
  • Beanitos or Lundberg Chips

Dairy/Creamy:

Bread/Carbs:

Coffee/Caffeine/Soda:

TIP:  I love to add “paleo” in front of any recipes or snack idea I want.  When you add “paleo”, you will get recipes without processed sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and other processed ingredients.
