Simple Eats, 3/11
Welcome back to this week’s Simple Eats!
March’s theme is How to Snack! Last week I created some delicious cinnamon-coffee infused muffins on snapchat and I also posted an easy and healthy granola (and/or cereal) recipe. If you haven’t tried them out yet, add it to you to-do list. You will not be disappointed!
This week we will be focusing on the following ingredients for our healthy and satisfying snack creations:
Fresh herbs and seasoning: This is something we often don’t think about when focusing on the nutritional value of food. Fresh herbs and seasonings can take the flavor profile of your meal (or snack in this case) to the next level. With the extra flavor from the fresh herbs and seasonings, you are able to omit ingredients that contain artificial flavoring, as well as extra salt or sugar. Using fresh dill or basil instead of salt, or using zested lemon or cinnamon instead of sugar, will not only enhance the flavor but the nutritional value as well.
Zucchini: Not only is zucchini low in carbohydrates and calories, but it is loaded with anti inflammatory properties. Win, win.
Keep a look out for our Snapchat recipe creation, and final product pictures on Facebook and Instagram! Find us at ARVAmethod.
See you in the Kitchen!
