I think looking back over the past few month I have struggled the most with finding healthy snacks. I have been able to replace meals with a vegan real food version quite easily. When it comes to snack I have struggled on a daily basis. There is only so many apples you can eat before you don’t want to see another apple in your life.
My second snack I would always go for is these soy roasted almonds. I would go for these snacks because they are quick and easy and only require a minimal effort to make. And they also taste good. When you look at this recipe you may be shocked due to the amount of soy sauce used and the amount of sodium in it. Since you only use the soy sauce to coat the almonds and about 75% will be left over in the bowl after you have coated them, no need to worry about the sodium content in these ones.
These roasted almonds are not only delicious but they also pack a whole lot of calories I desperately needed during my real food challenge. So my favourite way of using them was to toss them on top of any salad. This immediately made even the simplest salad a proper meal replacement. I am not ashamed to say that I even topped a restaurant salad with these last week as the meal was just not substantial enough for my lunch.
