1. Guilt-Free Banana Split
Banana + + dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs
Sweet tooths, rejoice.

Translation: You'll feel energized and full. Just slice the banana lengthwise, add a swipe of Julie's Real to each side, and top with chocolate chips or cacao nibs. Dessert is served.
2. Plant-Powered Cucumber Bites
3. Yogurt Parfait 2.0
Whole-milk or dairy-free yogurt + + blueberries
Yogurt and granola often sneak in a ton of sugar. This gluten-free version gets all the sweetness it needs from coconut, organic honey, and vanilla beans. Top plain yogurt (use dairy-free to make it Paleo) with , which contains just 6 grams of sugar per serving, then add blueberries for extra vitamin K.
4. Avocado Egg Salad
Avocado + hard-boiled egg + salt and pepper
This one couldn't be easier to prep: Mash together half an avocado with a hard-boiled egg and season with salt and pepper. Not only is this egg salad twist rich in healthy monounsaturated fats (good for lowering bad cholesterol) and protein, but it's also not weighed down with mayo or unnecessary dressings. If you're feeling extra hungry, spread over whole-grain toast.
5. Sushi Rice Cake
Smoked salmon + sliced avocado + brown rice cake + seasoning (dill, salt, pepper)
Layer salmon and avocado onto a brown rice cake for a snack that feels like a meal (in a good, not-too-full way).
