Since you’re an organic eater, you’re likely interested in eating healthy also.
But, does eating healthy actually have to be a form of self-torture?
You know how some people do it. They completely shun all processed foods entirely, and they only eat kale. They only consume the nastiest-tasting health foods.
They may lose weight and appear healthier on the outside. However, you know they don’t enjoy the life they live.
Some people flip over to that extreme and can maintain it.
But most can’t. And besides, was life really meant to be lived that way?
However, the truth is that you can eat healthy organic food – and have your taste buds enjoy it too.
Here’s some simple, fun, and healthy organic snacks you can enjoy:
1. Vanilla Matcha Popcorn
Can you believe popcorn made the list? Really? Yes. Really. Truthfully, popcorn in and of itself, without all the salt and butter you get with microwave popcorn or at the movie theatre, is quite healthy.
Pop ½ cup of your favorite popcorn kernels. Add 2 cups of any crunchy organic vanilla cereal to it in a large bowl.
Melt 6 tablespoons of coconut oil over low heat. Remove that from the heat and add a half cup of brown rice syrup, 2 tablespoons of pure vanilla extract, and include a pinch of sea salt and 1 tablespoon of green tea powder.
Pour that over your popcorn mixture and you have a delicious snack!
2. Pumpkin Spice Honey Cookies
The joke goes that you can get pumpkin spice anything these days. It really is that versatile of a taste, isn’t it?
What about pumpkin spice toilet paper? Wait a minute…
So yes, you can eat pumpkin spice honey cookies, which are also healthy for you.
Simply mix 1 tablespoon of flaxseed with 2 ½ tablespoons of water. In a separate bowl, use a mixer to cream together ½ cup of unsalted butter, ¾ cup of brown sugar, and ½ cup honey. Once smooth, mix together with flaxseed and water.
In another bowl, whisk together 1 cup of all-purpose flour, ½ cup of granola, ½ cup of whole wheat flour, 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and ¼ teaspoon of salt.
Note that you can make your own pumpkin pie spice by combining ¼ cup of cinnamon, 2 tablespoons each of ginger and nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon each of ground cloves and allspice.
Mix all that into your unsalted butter mixture.
Then, make each cookie about 1 tablespoon in size on your baking sheet. You can also press on some of your remaining granola. Cook for 18 minutes (until the cookies are browned).
…Now that’s good eatin’. Yes, you can “have your cake and eat it too.” And with these two recipes, you know how.
