Satisfying crunchy, sweet, salty and creamy snacks! I created my list following on from a suggestion in the year-long Replenish 365 course created by Lisa Grace Byrne. I really like the book Replenish 365 by Lisa Grace Byrne so you may like to check it out too – lots of great self-care suggestions for mums.
I stick to low-amine and low-glutamate foods and moderate to high salicylates so make sure you tailor the suggestions below to suit your tolerance levels.
Sweet: Pear, celery and cucumber green smoothie; roast sweet potato, swede and carrot; carob hot chocolate with rice milk.
Salty: Chic Nuts and cashews; Parkers Pretzels; Mountain bread crisped in the oven or rice cake popcorn; sliced green beans and celery with lentil chips or Bean and Rice chips (check the shopping lists to find suitable pre-made products).
Creamy: Cashew, pear and rice milk smoothie; chicken and brown rice soup (Quirky Cooking with failsafe adaptation e.g. cashews, leek, green beans, failsafe vegetable stock paste); bean dip with rice cakes; high protein custard (extra eggs, less sugar).
