I recently bought these little baby potatoes from the farmers market and love discovering new and tasty ways to use them. ย Typically I like to throw them in stews or pot roasts because they take close to zero prep work. They’re so small all you have to do is rinse and toss them into whatever dish your making. No peeling or tons of chopping needed. So I thought, why not make them into a savory snack?

Do you like healthy snacks that are super easy to make? Perfect, so do I… which is why I LOVE this simpleย and tasty recipe. When roasted, delicata squash turns into chewy amazing-ness. The flavor is slightly sweet and salty, satisfying that need for a quick and healthy bite. It’s also a great appetizer option that doesn’t add-on a ton of time to your overall menu. I like to pair them with a spicy yogurt aioli, which also takes seconds to whip up. Delicata is a lovely winter squash, one that I try to eat a lot of while they’re in season.

Look at these gorgeous artichokes! Iย picked them upย at the farmers market this past weekend and wanted to share a very delicious and healthy way to eat them.

Easy Little Energy Squares

This snack bar is honestly so simple to put together and the best part is that you know exactly whatโ€™s in it. For me, it became a bit of a chore to find snack bars that didnโ€™t have either added sugars, way too much protein, preservatives or not so good for you additives. The dried fruit creates a wonderful chewy yet light texture with a subtly sweet tang. The only sugars in this snackย are from the natural dried fruit, nothing elseโ€ฆ how lovely. Continue Reading
