These days, we’re all about the quick and easy: shirts that don’t need ironing, little robots that clean the floor (not that quick but definitely easy), dishes that clean themselves and walk themselves to the cupboards (quick and easy, just not reality yet). There’s no other season I truly appreciate quick and easy like summer. See, summer is when we have a constant parade of house guests, lovely friends and family who are in full-on vacation mode. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that full-on vacation mode means regular snack breaks.
I’m guessing summer snacking is big in many households too, so today’s Kitchen Talk topic will hopefully help us all. Tell us:
Do you have any favorite quick and easy (and healthy!) snack ideas?
My usual go-to is hummus, with these homemade almond crackers. A friend of mine dips baby gherkins (the sweet kind) in hummus, and that’s addictive too! Sometimes, when I’m in the mood for something cold and creamy, I’ll have a bowl of Greek yogurt (2% please) and drizzle some maple syrup over it. I also love the No-Bake Granola Bars in the photo above, as featured here in the Tasty Kitchen Blog.
How about you? Share your tips for easy, healthy summer snacks, and if you have a recipe link, feel free to include that too!
