SNACK ATTACK!

>    So, as you probably can tell, I’m a snacker. I have as many snacks in the day as meals… and sometimes more. Three of my favorite snacks are my cocoa-cereal-yogurt concoction, stove-popped popcorn w/nutritional yeast, and tortilla nut-butter roll-ups. I eat the yogurt concoction pretty much every day. The other two I eat maybe two-three times a week a piece. Recently I’ve been trying to find other snacks, so I’m sharing these with you with the hopes of getting some snack ideas in return.
Cocoa-Cereal-Yogurt Concoction
Ingredients
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 pack stevia (I like purevia or stevia in the raw)
dash of cinnamon
1/4 cup cereal (or 1/3 cup if I’m eating trader joe’s high fiber cereal)
Directions:
Spoon yogurt into desired eating container (bowl/cup). Add cocoa, stevia, and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. Add cereal. Mix well. EAT!
Yields 1 serving

Stove-popped Popcorn
Ingredients:
1/4 cup popcorn
extra-virgin olive oil
nutritional yeast
sea salt
Directions
Put desired amount of oil in bottom of a 3 quart saucepan. Add 3 kernels to pan and heat over medium heat with the lid on. Once the first kernel pops, add the rest of the kernels and cover. Shake pan back and forth as the kernels are popping.
Transfer popped kernels to bowl(s) and sprinkle with nutritional yeast and a dash of sea salt. (Other topping ideas: cinnamon w/stevia/sugar, parmesan cheese, just salt, salt & stevia/sugar)
Yields 1-2 servings (1 serving for me)

Tortilla & Nut-butter Roll-up
Ingredients:
1 tortilla (I like Tumaro low carb multigrain)
2 tsp (I usually just estimate) nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, sunflower seed)

Directions:
Roll tortilla in a paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds. Remove and spread the nut butter in a strip in the center of the tortilla. Roll tortilla up. EAT!
