SNACKS Midday. Midnight. Munchies. Appetizers. Party Snacks. Do it right.

UnTuna Salad

This is a kids meal from Nature's Plate. Super delicious and healthy. Can be a substantial scack or small meal.

Sea Salt & Vinegar almonds

Found in the bin at Sprouts. Goes great with scotch. ;)

Organic Texas Figs
Organic Texas Figs

Popping fruit is always a great snack. These figs were ridiculous. Just picked. Succulent but firm. Juicy and POW flavor. I shared them with NO ONE. NO ONE!!! ;)

Crispy Kale & Garlic Chives

I actually ate this for dinner recently. After a big luck.

Obsessed. From Green Grocer in Dallas. Kale, spinach, matcha, mint, coconut water, honey. YES.

Grilled Artichokes

The grilled artichokes at Stock & Barrel are outta sight.

Cherries!
Cherries!

Oh the season is short, so don't miss out each summer! In season cherries are so so good. If you think you don't like cherries - try some in-season organics. Plump, sweet, firm. Just a real treat.

Banana and peanut butter snack

Loved by kids. And adults. Any time, any place.

Spicy Watermelon Bites
Spicy Watermelon Bites

Came across a vegan salad recipe with some of these ingredients + modified for a handheld appetizer! • Local Watermelon - cut, de-seed and toss in olive oil, balsamic, lemon juice • Cilantro • Fresh Jalapeño Stack a chunk of melon, top with cilantro leave(s), jalapeño slice + spear w. toothpick. Sprinkle with sea salt (I used lavender sea salt). I also sprinkled with a tiny bit of sugar b/c melon was not as sweet as I hoped. A hit in looks + flavor!

Fresh juice
Fresh juice

You can't go wrong with downing juiced nutrients for a snack. And I also like to grab one to have as a "cocktail" at night. When I cook, I always feel the need to be sipping on something. Subbing this for alcohol means nutrients instead of sugar. In Dallas, Green Grocer (see link) has a juice Happy Hour mon-thur from 5-7pm. You can grab a made-to-order, organic, fresh fruit & veggie juice for half off. Whole Foods also makes them to order at a good price.

Snacks on a Euro Train
Snacks on a Euro Train

On my train from Brussels to Paris, we got to pick whatever we wanted from the snack cart. I chose : pasta, rhubarb muffin and vin blanc (white wine). Dreamy!!

Beet Juice!
Beet Juice!

Love the cheeky name on this. Whole Foods, Roots Juices and tons of others make fresh squeezed juices of various fruit & veggie combos, then bottle them and toss them in a fridge. An awesome on-the-go snack or meal replacement.

Rustic Salad | TImes Ten Cellars
Rustic Salad | TImes Ten Cellars

A great little green salad from Times Ten Cellars. Lots of roughage greens, fennel, candied pecans and a house made white wine vinaigrette. Perfect. $5.50.

Fried Veggies | Smashburger
Fried Veggies | Smashburger

If you are ever on the run in Mockingbird Station and need a super fast snack of veggies, this will do. Flash fried carrots and green beans. Super greasy but *slightly* better than fries. ;)

Blistered Shisito Peppers in Dallas
Blistered Shisito Peppers in Dallas

This very delicious bowl of blistered shishito peppers is half price at Lounge 31's weekly happy hour. Lounge 31 is upstairs from Bistro 31 in Highland Park Village. I love all peppers, pretty much. These poppers are vegan and yummy. Great snack. They also have half price sushi rolls, sake and a really delicious cucumber and seaweed salad.

Cuke and Seaweed salad
Cuke and Seaweed salad

Wow this is good. Vegan - sweetness from asian orange. Very nice, clean and balanced. Also on the Lounge 31 Happy Hour. $8 regular / $4 happy hour. Sweet!!

Vegan spinach dip
Vegan spinach dip

I grabbed this at Green Grocer when picking up a happy hour juice (M-TH 5to7 = 1/2 price fresh made juices!). Great alternative to cow milk versions - not as heavy, just as tasty. All organic: cashews, spinach, lemon, nutritional yeast, apple cider vin, water, s&p. Eating w Mary's Gone Crackers (onion flavor!!) and organic fuji apple.

Kobu aka sewaeed chips
Kobu aka sewaeed chips

A salty, greasy bar snack that's *just* a little bit better for you since seaweed is packed with nutrients. Had these at Tei Tei Robata on Henderson Ave. $3. Goes great with sake!
