Yesterday was my rest day, so I took advantage of it, and had snacks for diner!
We had movie night with the Scotsman. We do that once in a while, have snacks for diner and cuddle up in front of a couple of movies. I really needed that actually, it felt like a Sunday!
When I say we have snacks for diner, I mean that I put together a plate with a bunch of stuff to munch on. I do try to keep it healthy though!
In French we call it a “Plateau Tele”, a “TV Tray”.
A few favorites:
A few cubes of cheese
A bunch of kalamata olives (yum!)
Veggies and humus or dip. Last night’s dip, my new favorite: Tahini. miso and a bit of water. Delicious with carrot sticks.
A small bowl of soup, with my whole wheat toast cut into stripes :)
Devils eggs (Replace mayo with Greek yogurt and mustard)
Cherry tomato sprinkled with basil
You get the idea, easy and healthy finger food!
I had some cubed pineapple. I also add some apple that I cut into quarters. Why is it that apples taste better and are more filling when cut? Or is it just me?
Another favorite is apple bits and grapes.
If I’m the mood for chocolate, I have chocolate dipped fruits. Or even apples / pears and chocolate chips. Very yummy indeed :)
I also love making fruit kebab… Cut fruits in equal sized bits, put on a stick and voila! Or sprinkle some coconut flakes for extra yumminess…
And let’s not forget popcorn! We don’t have a microwave in the new house, so we use a pan… No need to buy the prepackaged stuff, covered in grease and sugar etc..
Just buy the kernels (cheaper) add your own seasoning (Cinnamon, or salt and curry are delicious) and pop in a microwave safe dish or a pan!
Do you have a “snack night” at your house? What’s your favorite healthy snacks?
