Fast, Easy, & Healthy Snack Ideas
I’ve been playing around my new lens and trying to figure out how to get zoomed in and get good close up shots. That’s been easier said than done because it’s not a true macro lens, plus, it doesn’t zoom.
Standing about 12-14 inches back and trying to get as close to the food as possible and have the camera still take the picture has been my course of action. The camera won’t “snap” the picture if I get too close. But sometimes I want to zoom in and get more detail than this…
So these pictures of my edamame and tomato salad are as zoomed in as I can get.
I didn’t pour the Vegan Slaw Dressing over the top until I knew I was done taking pictures. Which was a mere 20 minutes later. I took about 40 pictures of my salad and didn’t like any of them.
Here was my photography attempt with my “Baked” Pumpkin Pie Bananas snack:
Slice 1 Banana
Sprinkle with 1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice & 1 Tsp of Sugar
Microwave for 30 seconds
Or try Microwave Banana Oat Cakes
No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Bars
Thanks to the dozens and dozens of you who have written me telling me these have become a staple in your house!
I also make Peanut Butter “Sandwiches” using zucchini, squash, or cucumber rounds
If you like the looks of the Pumpkin Pie Spice “Baked” Bananas above, you’d probably also like my 1 Minute GF Vegan Apple Crumble
I have to say, my old point and shoot macro setting shots as evidenced by the below photos were pretty darn decent if I do say so.
For Snacks with Added Protein in them…
Chocolate Coconut Oil Protein Popcorn
Popcorn makes a good snack if you need that crunch factor. Plus you can get salty + sweet at the same time if that’s your thing. Or added protein if that’s your thing.
You don’t even need to whip out a Vita or food processor for these. These are a stir by hand, one bowl, and you’re done type snack. I think these are the #2 most viewed recipe on my site.
Or if you like to drink your snacks…
Chocolate Coconut Princess Smoothie
You don’t have to have a princess cup to enjoy this one. But everything tastes better in Princess cups I think.
From my post yesterday, I’m so glad you enjoyed my recipe for my Grandma D’s Special K Bars! I hope you make them. She would roll over in her grave with joy if she knew you did!
And lots of you told me you’ve had similar recipes that called for Corn Flakes. I have seen and had those too, but using Special K is how my grandma made them and I like them better than with Corn Flakes.
