Transforming Traditional “Diet-Food” Snacks

In response to Dr. Ludwig’s new research, Chef Kenzie shares a few ideas to transform your “low-fat diet” snacks into full-fat, satiating, and delicious ones. Browse her ideas below and comment your favorites.

  1. Instead of fat-free yogurt with honey…. Try full-fat plain Greek yogurt with frozen fruit (thawed to make a “sauce”) and a dollop of nut butter (or a spoonful of nuts/seeds).
  2. Instead of popcorn… Try Herb Roasted Chickpeas (Always Hungry? pg. 293) – swap the herbs for your favorite herbs and/or spices.
  3. Instead of boxed cereal and skim milk…. Try Whole Grain Porridge cooked in whole-milk/water/broth and mixed with nut butter, protein, and fruit (see Always Delicious pg. 101) OR Overnight Steel-Cut Oats (see Always Hungry? pg. 226)
  4. Instead of shrimp with cocktail sauce… Try shrimp with Coconut Curry Sauce (Always Hungry? pg. 266)
  5. Instead of store-bought granola (to serve with yogurt or cottage cheese)… Try topping your yogurt or cottage cheese with homemade Trail Mix (Always Hungry? pg. 291)
