So it seemed about time to toss out a couple new recipes for snack foods. I have heard too many foolish comments by people who in no way eat a paleo style diet complaining that they would never eat this way because they can’t be so strict. So for those interested in trying out some favorite snack foods here are two favorites.
Time: This depends on whether or not you AMRAP the prep. Probably sub 3.
• Sea Salt
• 1 cup Dates
• 2 cups Almonds
• 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate covered espresso beans
• Shaker container
• Lid for shaker container
Round 1: Place the dates, almonds and espresso beans in the shaker container.
Round 2: Spice accordingly.
Round 3: Place lid on container.
Round 4: Shake as vigorously as possible for three minutes. Post number of shakes somewhere where people care.
It should be posted openly that simply because something is free of grains it does not mean that it should be consumed by the kilo. Also while it is tempting to sell you all on some line about how the cayenne and caffeine make this a great snack for ramping up the metabolism and CNS while ensuring a constant supply of energy I will hold myself above such low pandering. This stuff is simply both tasty and delicious.
Time: 30-40min depending on desired degree of crunchy.
• Sea Salt
• 1 Lemon
• Olive oil
• Cracked Black Pepper
So wash and dry your kale as you would normally do for anything that you are about to take off the pawed over shelves of a grocery store. Then cut all of the leaves of the kale off of the stalks. Spread evenly across a baking tray, and then douse this in lemon, cayenne, sea salt, black pepper, and olive oil. Try and do this as evenly as possible. From there this simply needs to be placed in an oven and baked on 350 for about 30minutes with one short break to flip/move around if you feel diligent. They should be a little soft.
