Just because you live a busy lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t stick to the Paleo diet in the spring or any other season throughout the year. These grab-and-go snacks utilize ingredients found in the spring, but can really be enjoyed year-round.
The first type of snack you can make that will be really easy as a grab-and-go Paleo snack is veggie chips. The great thing about these is that you can use veggies that are in season during the spring, not really worrying about what they are. Most vegetables, especially root vegetables, work good as veggie chips. You might not be able to find squash that are in season, but what about carrots? These tend to flourish in the spring and summer, and can be sliced into chip-size pieces, baked, and make into chips you can carry with you. These are a lot more enjoyable to munch on than just carrot sticks.
You will find quite a few different muffin recipes that are Paleo-approved since they use natural and simple ingredients. Muffins are great because you can make a big batch beforehand, then save them in the fridge or freezer and just grab one at a time as needed. Even if you get a frozen muffin on your way out the door, as long as it is kept out in room temperature, it will be thawed by your morning or afternoon snack time. For the spring, strawberry muffins are an excellent option. These are often made with strawberries, coconut oil, almond flour, baking soda, salt, ghee, vanilla extract, and honey. All natural and healthy ingredients.
Tuna Salad Cucumber Bites
This type of grab-and-go snack isn’t exactly something you can while driving or heading out the door, but if you prepare it ahead of time, it is easy to grab a storage container with them and eat them while at work, a picnic, or even while going on a hike as long as you keep it in a cooler bag. All you have to do is make some tuna salad, then add it to the top of cucumber slices. It really is as easy as that! This is simple to do, healthy, inexpensive, and super easy to bring anywhere with you.
Don’t forget you can always take some of your spring fruits and vegetables and chop them into bite-size pieces, then put in portion containers to bring with you anytime you need them.
