Hi guys and gals I wanted to start today off by giving a list of our favorite easy to make Paleo snacks for the team here at Average Guy Fitness.  This list is going to include small Paleo snacks that you can make at home that wont break your bank or diet.

1. Home Made Trail Mix

This is a easy one to make.  Get your favorite Paleo Nuts and mix them together.  This is good to supplement that chicken salad you just ate for lunch.

2. Beef Jerky

I know that not everyone is going to have a dehydrator at home.  But if you do this is a good way to get some extra protein in while still following the diet.

3. Kale Chips

Kale is a good source of fiber.  Also kale is just plain bomb when its crunchy.  I love crunchy kale chips.  Season them how you like and its much more healthier for you then a potato chip.

4. Chocolate Covered Bacon

OK this one is going to be a little harder to pull off, but if you can find a good dark chocolate preferably lacking soy, you can have a great Paleo treat.  These bad boys are what dreams are made of.  Let’s face it who can have enough bacon.

5.  Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

This is a good treat for the November months.   Try to hold off on the salt and you have yourself a nice good compliment to any post workout/meal snack.

6. Cauliflower Popcorn

This stuff is easy to make and costs about 2 dollars. Pop it in the over with some extra virgin olive oil on 350 and let it brown.   Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables ever because of everything you can do with it.  I am going to make a whole article on the versatility of cauliflower in the Paleo diet.

7.  Cauliflower Rice

This one is a bit harder to make if you don’t have a food processor.  I’ve never tried making this in a blender, but if it works leave a comment.  Pretty easy to make is really cheap.  Get good at making this, it will make a lot of your other foods your use to making with rices look and taste better.

8.  Hard Boiled Eggs

This is a really cheap way to have a snack.  Bring some gum, eggs leave a weird smell on your breath.  Pro egg eater tip.   Also can go good with a salad or small lunch meal.

9.  Devilish Mustard Deviled Eggs

I like to eat deviled eggs, but the mayo in them is just so bad.  I’ve learned to substitute it for mustard and everything was right with the world.  It taste great and you will love it.  Top it off with some chili powder and just be glad not everything that is good is taken away from our diet.

10. Shrimp Cocktail

This one is a little more on the expensive side.  But lets face it its number 10 and number 10 is a great number.  Make sure you use sugar free tomato sauce or boil your own tomatoes.  This is a good source of protein and vitamins from the vegetables you put in it.  Try to keep the salt out of it, shrimp is naturally salty.
