  1. 8 Delicious, Mediterranean-Friendly Snack Recipes


    Mediterranean Snacks


    Wholesome, healthy foods are the foundation of the Mediterranean Diet. Meals are often cooked with olive oil and feature staples like fish, whole grains and potatoes.

    The Mediterranean Diet is popular for a reason — studies show it can lead to weight loss and combat health issues like heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, and premature death.

    It’s pretty straightforward to eat Mediterranean-style lunches and dinners, but what about when it comes to healthy snacks? That’s why we rounded up eight Mediterranean Diet-friendly snack recipes. You can whip up these up ahead of time and have on hand to stay in line with your healthy diet but still have something to get you through those hungry mid-afternoon moments.

    Enjoy!

    Loaded Mediterranean Hummus

    1) Loaded Mediterranean Hummus


    Hummus is perhaps the most obvious Mediterranean-friendly snack, but why not elevate it to the next level? All you need for this easy-to-make recipe is store-bought hummus, feta cheese, olives, bell peppers and herbs. Mix them together and pair with pita chips or carrots for a simple (but filling!) snack.

    Crock Pot Chunky Monkey Paleo Trail Mix

    2) Crock Pot Chunky Monkey Paleo Trail Mix


    If you’re looking for crunchy, salty-sweet handful of pure deliciousness, this recipe is for you. Mixed nuts, coconut flakes and sugar and butter are roasted in a Crock-Pot and then mixed with banana chips and dark chocolate chips for a trail mix you can bag up and have at the ready no matter where your week takes you.

    Avocado Egg Toast

    3) Avocado and Egg Toast


    You can’t beat the healthy fats found in avocado, and mashing it up makes for the perfect butter substitute to top a slice of whole-wheat toast. Then, add an egg any way you like it — such as poached, fried, scrambled or boiled — for a boost of protein that will keep you extra satisfied and energetic the rest of the day.

    Baked Beet Chips

    4) Baked Beet Chips


    Giving up potato chips can be tough for some of us, but thankfully, the Mediterranean Diet offers the perfect substitute with these crunchy, delicious Baked Beet Chips. Making them doesn’t require too much skill and basically entails slicing fresh beets very thinly, coating the baking sheet with a tiny bit of olive oil and cooking them 400 degrees on the bottom rack will give you the best crispy texture. Top them with sea salt or flavored salt, and you’ll likely wonder why you ever felt you needed potato chips in the first place!
