3 Simple Healthy Snacks

Blueberry Oatmeal

Oats are one of the healthiest foods, and so are blueberries. Combine them in an oatmeal and make yourself power breakfast, snack or even lunch.

 

OatmealwithBlueberries

 

 

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1 cup water, coconut milk, almond milk, or whole milk (depends on your own bio-individuality and tolerance to different type of foods)

1 tbsp Swerve sweetener or raw organic honey

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. In a small sauce pan combine the oats and the milk of your choice and bring to boil over medium heat.
  2. Lower the heat and let it simmer until the oats soak up the liquid and become soft.
  3. Add the blueberries, cinnamon, and sweetener. Mix well and serve warm.

Tip: If you’re using frozen blueberries, add them to the hot oats a little earlier to give them more time to thaw.

 

Cucumber Strawberry Boats 

This is not a commonly seen combination, but surprisingly refreshing and delicious. It’s a great entertainment snack and super easy to assemble.

Cucumber-strawbery-snack

 

All you need are these 4 ingredients:

Cucumber (sliced)

Strawberries (halved and sliced)

Goat cheese

Sliced almonds

 

Instructions:

  1. Scoop a teaspoon of goat cheese on each slice of cucumber.
  2. Place halves of the sliced strawberries on each cucumber slice – use the goat cheese as a glue and position the strawberries as shown on the picture.
  3. Top the cheese with 3 or 4 almond slices.

 

 

Simple Healthy Strawberry Parfait

This is only a 3 ingredient parfait. I don’t know if I can call it a parfait, but it sounds more fancy than a yogurt. Which is exactly what this is. It’s like a flavored yogurt but much healthier because it’s made with goat kefir and there’s no added sugar.

GoatMilk-Strawberries

 

Ingredients:

1 cup goat kefir

1/3 cup chopped or sliced strawberries

2 tbsp sliced almonds

    I haven’t had oatmeal since I gave up sugar several weeks ago; I always used to put brown sugar in my oatmeal. I had not considered trying Swerve because it seems more like a white sugar substitute.

      Hey Jenn 🙂 have you tried with coconut sugar? it seems to be the most beneficial for our health. Also honey if you are not vegan

    Mmmm, love it! I’ve also been enjoying my “parfaits” for breakfast, but with locally produced sheep yogurt. I bought goat whey powder at a local natural foods store here. I just love the taste of sheep and goat dairy products, and my body doesn’t react to them like cow milk (I’m sensitive to casein and cow caseins are the most difficult for casein-sensitive people). It’s so freaking good. I found COCONUT MILK POWDER (OMG!!!!) by the Native Forest brand. I add it to the yogurt and it’s like OMG so freaking delicious.

    Those cucumber-strawberry-goat cheese-almond slice snacks look awesome!!! Strawberries are majorly in season right now, and I can get good goat cheese at the farmer’s market. Thanks Z!!

    I love oatmeal, but I put aronia berries instead of blueberries.
    One question: oatmeal is a FM or WEM? I mean I know it’s not like other grains and that it has more protein. But it seems more like WEM to me….
