Healthy Low Carb Cantaloupe & Cheesy Almond BitesPosted: June 18, 2016
During the hot summer months, nobody wants to turn on an oven or stand around for long in the kitchen, with the great outdoors calling our name! But still, we do need fuel for summertime play, and we’d like it to be tasty, quick, and healthy.
Here’s a snack that fills the bill. I often enjoy this for breakfast as well as a mid-day snack or to go with a glass of wine to make Happy Hour even happier. And they are so delicious and pretty — you’ll feel great about serving them as a summertime appetizer to anyone, almost any diet plan. Low carb, high protein, gluten-free and smart in calories as well.
And if you are looking for a nourishing, funny and uplifting summertime read to take to the beach (or your porch swing) — may I suggest you check out our books: We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook and Nourished: A Search for Health, Happiness and a Full Night’s Sleep.
Simply cut a piece of string cheese in 8 equal pieces, then arrange on plate sprayed with Pam. Nuke for 15 seconds. Put a smoked almond in center of each piece of cheese while warm. Cut “cantaloupe crackers” (slices of fresh cantaloupe in cracker-sized pieces) and place cheese & almond on top.
This appetizer is cold and warm, sweet and salty, soft and crunchy. So easy so good so healthy. Enjoy!
