Have you noticed that eating paleo is easy and delicious? I hope I have been able to show you this by now… Combining real foods with a little creativity can turn this into a simple, yet incredibly delicious healthy snack. All you need are some apples (I love green), a nut butter of your preference (I used almond butter), some dark chocolate chips and some coconut. Calling this apple nachos might make it fun and interesting for kids and I am sure everyone will love it.
Here is a great tip for keeping fruits like apples and bananas from turning dark in color after you cut them. Simply toss the fruit in lemon or lime juice immediately after you cut them. I like having a large bowl ready with the citrus juice in it and as I cut the fruit I quickly mix them with the juice . The fruit can be stored in the fridge for weeks and they will not turn dark. And best of all, somehow you can not taste the lemon or lime juice!
