Crunchy Split Pea Snack

Split peas are so versatile. Throw them into a soup or create a crunchy snack out of them. They are also healthy, high in iron, potassium and fiber, so they help to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels. They also contain less calories than chickpeas, that is, 100 less calories in each cup. This is a delicious recipe with spices such as cumin and paprika.

Zucchini Chips

Zucchini chips are baked, not deep fried, so they are super healthy. Using a mandoline, you can finely slice the zucchini and the thinner they are, the crunchier they can get. You can add any spice you like, but the author advises not to add too much as the zucchini does shrink as it cooks. For the same reason, you’ll want to get zucchini that are as thick as possible.

Salt and Lime Spinach Chips

Spinach crunchy chips are super healthy. Probably the chips containing the highest amount of iron. This is a fun way to eat spinach. You’ll want to use large spinach leaves, not the baby spinach kind, as baby spinach is too fragile and thin. So this is a healthy snack to try out if you are on the Whole30 diet.

Ants on a Log

This snack is heavy on the celery, where crunch is an understatement. It’s high in vitamin k and fiber and is made up mostly of water. You can change the recipe as you see fit but basically, it’s filled with a nut butter of choice and you can sprinkle dried fruit on top. Now any dried fruit that does not have added sugar will be Whole30 compliant. This also applies to the coconut flakes. Have fun creating your own logs.

Healthy Apple Nachos

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away and there’s a reason for that. Apples are high in vitamin c which is great for your immune system, hair, skin, nails and more. Apples are also high in potassium which is great for heart health. These apples are super delicious when dipped into the chocolate nut butter. This recipe is also high in protein thanks to the nut butter.

Healthy Plantain Crunchy Chips

Plantains are similar to bananas but aren’t sweet and lower in sugar. Plantains are a healthy snack, being high in vitamin c – in fact, 100g of plantain can give you 30% of your vitamin c daily requirements. Very similar to bananas, plantains are high in potassium. They are even higher in potassium than bananas. Plantains are also high in magnesium so this snack is a great choice.
