Dietitian-Approved Whole30 Snack Recipes

Even with all the restrictions, it is possible to enjoy flavorful snacks!

If you are already familiar with the Whole30 diet, then you are well aware of the number of restrictions that go along with the regime.

This can make snacking a challenge, especially if you are a first timer. Jessica De Luise explains that Whole30 is a 30-day diet that focuses on whole foods and the elimination of the following:

By centering your diet on whole, unprocessed ingredients, you help to deter issues like  inflammation, stomach upset, and unwanted weight gain.

Aaptiv can also help with unwanted weight gain. View the workouts we’ve just released in the app.

By Ashley Chennel

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Wash your kale leaves with water. Pat them completely dry with a paper towel to remove all moisture (or you can use a salad spinner).
  2. Take your kale leaves and cut them from the stalks. Place your leaves on a drying rack and massage them with avocado oil.
  3. Afterwards, place them on a baking pan to prepare for seasoning. Place all of your seasonings into a bowl and mix them together.
  4. Next, sprinkle the seasoning onto the kale chips.
  5. Then, place the baking pan in the oven on 300 Fahrenheit for about eight to ten minutes. You don’t want to leave them in for too long or they will just overcook and disintegrate. Be sure to watch them closely.
  6. Once you think they’re done, remove them from the oven, and let them cool for about five minutes. Then, enjoy!

Apple Almond Butter Slices

By Ashley Chennel

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Slice each green apple into five round slices. Each slice should be about a quarter of an inch thick.
  2. Take a cookie cutter and cut out the middle.
  3. Next, take a half a tablespoon of almond butter and spread it around the apple slice.
  4. Drizzle a pinch of coconut flakes on top of each slice.

Coconut Trail Mix

By Ashley Chennel

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Pour the coconut flakes into a bowl. Add one teaspoon of smoked sea salt, and one tablespoon of liquid smoke.
  2. Mix the coconut shavings, smoked sea salt, and liquid smoke. Spread evenly over a baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper underneath. Coconut is very temperamental, so it must be watched closely in the oven.
  3. Bake the coconut shavings for no more than ten minutes. Be sure to rotate the coconut shavings every five minutes so that they don’t burn.
  4. You want to bring them to a nice toasted brown color. After ten minutes, remove them from the oven and let them cool down.
  5. You can also toast any nuts you may be using. Douse them in a teaspoon of coconut oil and a dash of cinnamon. Place them on a baking pan and bake for about ten minutes, as well.
  6. Once your nuts and coconut shavings have cooled, place them in a ziplock bag and then add the cacao bites. Shake up the bag and mix the ingredients together.
  7. You can eat it straight from the bag or control the serving size by adding it to a small bowl.
