Top 7 easy and healthy snack ideas

Untied - Tuna salad, avocado, Jicama, cucumber and prawn crackers

Winter is a perfect time to catch up on all those TV shows you’ve been holding out on, and to try out all the new slots at CasinoChan. Crunching on popcorn, chips, and cookies in front of the screen is unhealthy, so here’re 7 healthy snacks that will make for a lazy weekend without harming your health.

Cherry tomatoes with mozzarella

Prepare a buffet version of the classic Italian caprese salad: staple small cherry tomatoes and mini mozzarella in balls with a skewer. Spritz the finished appetizer lightly with pesto sauce or garnish with green basil leaves.

Canapés with hummus and vegetables

The chickpea appetizer is rapidly gaining popularity around the world. Vegetarians love hummus, and it can be eaten alone or used as a sauce. Some people buy a jar of hummus in the supermarket, but you can make it yourself.

Before the evening alone with the show, prepare small canapés of cereal or rye bread and spread hummus on them. Top with fresh vegetables: cucumber, sweet peppers, radishes, etc. 

Baked sweet pepper rolls

Preparing this snack will take no more than 15 minutes, not counting the time while the peppers will bake in the oven and cool. 

For this recipe, choose red bell peppers. It will be convenient to cook the snack in advance: divide baked peppers into strips, each lightly sprinkle chopped garlic and herbs, salt, then sprinkle with olive oil and lemon juice. After that, carefully roll up each piece into a roll and secure it with a skewer. Peppers are low-calorie, so you can eat this snack without fear of harming your figure.

Vegetable sticks with zajiki

It is believed that people are drawn to French fries, croutons or chips not so much because of a taste for these particular products, but out of a desire to crunch on something, especially in front of the screen while watching a movie. If this is your case, you can take with you to the home movie session sliced thin sticks and slices of vegetables.

Don’t forget the sauce. A great sauce to go with vegetables is zajiki based on thick Greek yogurt, mint, grated cucumbers, garlic, and spices. But if you like tomato sauce or honey-mustard sauce you can make it as you like! The main thing is to say no fatty, creamy sauces and no mayonnaise.

Salad leaf rolls with roast beef or turkey

If you’re going to spend a few hours watching the show, make light lettuce leaf rolls filled with cottage cheese and slices of roast beef, turkey, or chicken breast.

Roll up the rolls tightly so the filling doesn’t fall out, and add your favorite spices. You can also add cucumber or peppers to the rolls. Do not experiment with tomatoes, as they give too much juice.

Stuffed avocado halves

A classic recipe is to lightly stuff the avocado halves with crab or shrimp salad. A canned tuna and egg salad goes well with avocados, or if you don’t like fish, make a salad with chicken fillet, canned corn and mushrooms.

Alternatively, bake the avocado halves by laying half a hard-boiled egg in each one like a matryoshka doll, adding a little sauce and a sprinkling of grated cheese. Such a hot appetizer looks very impressive in the cut.

Coconut panna cotta

This easy Italian-style dessert can be made in portioned cremations, so it’s easy to take with you to the TV. The classic panna cotta is a jelly made with heavy cream and sugar, but there are no complaints about the healthy version of the recipe: make the dessert with coconut milk. You can adjust the amount of sugar to taste or replace it altogether with one of the naturally healthy sweeteners.

Add dried or dried cherries, cranberries, raisins, sprinkle coconut shavings or chia seeds on top. It’s best not to use fresh fruit, as it gives off juice, which can prevent the jelly from setting.
