To ensure your summer road trip, family picnic, or plane ride is free of processed snacks that can have a skyrocketing amount of sugar, salt or processed oils, plan ahead. Individual packs of guacamole, hummus, nut butters, whole-grain crackers, and unsweetened applesauce are convenient and nutritious, as are sticks of carrots, celery, jicama, and other crunchy veggies. Here, three recipes to make and pack:
1 teaspoon cinnamon Apples
1. Slice your apples paper-thin using a mandoline.
2. Arrange them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
3. Put them in the oven for up to two hours at 200 degrees. Depending on how thick your apple slices are, they may brown quickly, so keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn.
4. The apple chips, slightly chewy when removed from the oven, will turn crispy as they cool.
