Banting snacks for Boxing Day

The year is almost over and what a year it has been Minecraft 0.6 1 Escape Map! Many people all over South Africa have adopted the Tim Noakes Banting diet, to great effect. Many people claim that the change has improved their lives and their waist-line. The only issue is: the rules and changes aren’t easy, and it certainly isn’t made any easier now that it’s the holiday season.

We’ve posted a few Banting-friendly recipes before, but now, it’s time to share with you some snack ideas for Boxing Day.

Devilled eggs

Simple and easy to make. All you need to do is follow a classic devilled eggs recipe. You can garnish it with some fresh herbs and serve it with some avocado and bacon.

Grilled cheese chilli peppers

If you like things hot, why not a grilled cheese chili pepper? All you need to do is slice jalapeño chili peppers length wise and stuff them with cheese (choose your favourite, just make sure it’s a soft cheese). Pop them in an oven and set it to grill. Keep them in until the cheese is melted and browning on top. Remove and allow the cheese to cool before serving.

Cucumber bites

For something light and refreshing, make cucumber bites. Simply cut a whole cucumber in half, lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Fill the newly made trench in the cucumber with your favourite relish or topping, e.g., cottage cheese, mayonnaise, tomato relish, chili relish or even salsa. Once you’re done, cut the cucumber into smaller sized pieces, and serve.

Stuffed tomatoes/ peppers

This one is another easy snack or small meal. Simply cut off the top of a pepper or tomato, scoop out the innards and fill it with your choice of stuffing. With a pepper, we suggest adding some raw eggs (beaten) as a filling, then popping the pepper into a hot oven until the egg is cooked.

Fried Kale leaves and biltong guacamole

This is another simple dish if you’re craving something crunchy – simply fry kale leaves in oil. For a dip: mash up an avocado pear and add some chopped up biltong to the mix.
