Where to find great snack ideas
A while back, I posted some ideas for healthy snacks and desserts, but I want to add that Instagram has some brilliant ideas with great step-by-step visuals on how to make them. They involve very few ingredients and ALL acceptable for just about any version of IBD diet you can imagine. Easy to find if you search phrases like "Paleo Dessert Recipes" or "Gluten Free Recipes". I've actually made a couple already.
Below are the ideas I had originally shared but which deserve repeating, in my humble opinion. ;-)
Parmesan crisps - made in the oven with nothing but a sheet of wax and cookie-sized mounds of shredded parm. Bake for 15 minutes.
Kale chips - made in the oven with nothing but a sheet of wax paper and fresh kale. Bake for 15 minutes.
Dessert treat: Chocolate (almond butter) bites - made in an ice cube tray. Mix softened dark chocolate or semi-sweet choc morsels and coconut oil, melt to a pourable consistency. Pour into ice tray for bite-sized treats. Freeze until hardened enough to pop out like ice cubes. For added fun, put a dab of almond butter (no sugar) in between two layers of the poured chocolate mixture before freezing. It's like a Reese's...but MUCH healthier!
