One of the challenges of working or studying from home is that you need to have a well-stocked pantry and fridge...and it had better be full of reasonably healthy choices to keep our energy levels high throughout the day!
I've put together five easy snacks, hot and cold, one for each day of the week. These tasty, Greek-inspired treats will definitely help you resist the temptation to snack on high-fat cereal bars, chips or overly sweet cookies and junk food.
If you also keep baby carrots, radishes, and different kinds of cheese around to complement these, you're sure to satisfy the munchies with plenty of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants...just what we need to beat the Fall Frenzy.
Let us know what kind of healthy snacks you're making with our Artisans' delights, we'd love to share them with all the Zelos community!
I always have a jar of Tragano Greek Organics peppers on hand because they're incredibly versatile and add a needed touch of color and vitamins to scrambled eggs, salads, meatballs and more. For a quick, tasty snack, I especially like taking out a whole pepper and cutting it up onto a piece of toasted french bread (or even better, onto a slice of my own bread, if I've made some!) and drizzling some extra virgin olive oil over it - call it a Greek bruschetta! If you have a bit of a longer break, take a few minutes to stuff one of these peppers with some cottage cheese or crumbled feta and pop it under the grill for a delicious hot snack.
You can also stuff those whole peppers with this easy dip that I whip up by blending crumbled feta with a few spoonfuls of Elli & Manos' Flaming Red Pepper Greek Flavor Burst...but I also love tyrokafterí with warm pita bread or stuffed in celery sticks, a tasty way to get a good boost of calcium and fiber, too!
I know I first shared this recipe for breakfast or brunch, but I ended up munching on the leftovers in the middle of the day when I wanted a more substantial snack, so I thought I'd share it again. Made fresh, these are a great after-school snack for hungry kids and will really help tide you over if your Zoom meetings are running late.
