in today’s video I’m sharing with you
guys some delicious healthy snacks that are not only going to be a super good
for you and healthy but they’re satisfying as well and they’re all
gluten free dairy free plant-based and paleo too so let’s go ahead and get
right into them the first snack we’re making is this
super seedy sweet potato toast so I’m starting off by making a sweet potato
toast which is definitely a staple in my kitchen in my fridge and it’s a great
gluten free paleo option that is simple it has one ingredient and if you don’t
have gluten free breads or paleo breads around you this is a really cost
effective option too so I like to slice these up and keep them on hand either in
the fridge or the freezer all you have to do is slice it bake it at 400 degrees
for 25 minutes and then they’re done and they can be kept in the fridge or
freezer for whatever you want them now my latest obsession is a super CD
version if you follow on instagram which you definitely should my name is just
keep up with Liv I share lots of snacks on there I’ve been obsessed with this
one so I started off with some almond butter which is rich in vitamin E and
healthy fats in the combo of the complex carbs in the sweet potato along with the
healthy fats and the almond butter really help to satisfy and keep you full
and then it’s time to load up with the seeds so I use some pumpkin seeds which
are so high in zinc in magnesium some hemp seeds which have nice omega-3s in
them some protein as well as chia seeds which help to fill you up and are also
loaded with Omega threes and then I put on a little – – sea salt for some flavor
and you have this wonderfully delicious satisfying super seedy sweet potato
toast this is definitely a snack that’s been on repeat for me for a couple
months now and I just had to share it next up are these everything bagel
cashews so I’m starting off with just a cup of plain cashews but you can
definitely do this with any other seed or nut and then I’m using a tablespoon
of avocado oil and of course the everything bagel seasoning it from a
Trader Joe’s now if you’re not near a Trader Joe’s or you’re not familiar with
this seasoning it basically tasted like an everything bagel and I’m going to
leave a DIY home version down in the description box in case you
get to a Trader Joe’s but it basically makes everything taste like and
everything bagel and it’s delicious so I mix that together and then I’m
lying that on the silicon sheet or just make sure you line your baking sheet or
grease that and we’re going to be roasting this in the oven at 325 degrees
for 12 to 15 minutes or until they start to get golden start to watch them at the
12 minute mark and they need maybe up to 15 and once they’re done you have these
wonderfully flavorful roasted cashews they’re a little less boring than like a
plain cashew but they also taste great on salads or anything like that too next
up we are making this mint lime berry salad so berries are a great low sugar
fruit there are a lot lower in sugar compared to other fruits and they’re
definitely something you want to buy organic so strawberries are actually the
dirtiest fruit or vegetable that is on the market so you definitely want to buy
these organic studies have shown that they have over 18 different like
residues and pesticides so if you buy one thing in your life organic make it
strawberries and I like combining a few different berries but you can definitely
just do one you can do a mix of blackberries raspberries blueberries
strawberries and what’s great about this salad is that it’s definitely something
that you can prep in advance and keep on hand so I’m also gonna add in some
blueberries wonderful antioxidants blueberries are great for your memory
and great for your brain which I feel like a lot of people don’t know and then
I’m adding some lime juice on the top this really adds a nice flavor to it
it’s a bit different and this also helps to kind of marinate the berries
so they almost taste sweeter if you leave them or if you make a big batch of
this and they help them from going bad I’m tearing up some fresh mint and fun
fact this mint is actually fresh from my herb garden if you don’t have an herb
garden they definitely have they just didn’t like the herb section of your
grocery store mint is really good for a digestion it’s really good for easing
cramping just helping with bloating and everything like that so in the summer
time this combo of the mint and the berries is perfect and it is so
refreshing and adds a little bit of a different like zing and flavour to just
plain berries so just going the extra step of like a
few seconds hits hair up some mint leaves squeeze on some lime juice it
tastes so good and this is also something like I said you can prep in
advance and then we are making beet hummus but because it’s paleo we’re not
actually using chickpeas so we are using cauliflower cauliflower is rich in
choline then we got the beets which are loaded with antioxidants I mean look at
that color the more color something has they have a lot like polyphenols and
antioxidants a couple tablespoons of tahini which is a sesame seed paste and
basically gives hummus the characteristic hummus flavor and then
I’m adding in the juice of half of a lemon and this just really brings it
together it also helps to preserve it because the lemon juice kind of keeps it
fresh similar to how with a lime keeps avocado fresh so squeeze in your juice
of half a lemon and then I’m going to finish it off by adding in a pinch of
Himalayan salt this is just my staple salt it’s full of trace minerals so it’s
super good for you blend that all together and you have this wonderfully
vibrant beet hummus you can have this with veggies with some fiber crackers
guys I put this on pizza I put a spoonful with just about anything it’s
sweet because of the beets but not too sweet you have that Tang from the tahini
and a little bit of Himalayan salt so I hope you guys enjoyed this video I’m
