Copy Link When user Wholesome_Douchebag took to Reddit in search of “healthy snack alternatives that can be consumed in large amounts,” the community responded in droves. Here’s a smattering of some of the most popular and unexpected answers. 1. You’d be shocked to find out how good cottage cheese mixed with “Everything but the Bagel” seasoning is.

“I take cottage cheese and put a fuck ton of ‘Everything But the Bagel’ seasoning . If you eat with rice crackers it’s extremely similar to chips with onion dip. Similar in taste and texture.
The crackers are salty, the seasoning is salty.
And if you let it sit in the fridge like you would with the Lipton’s onion dip, it’s even better.”

“We’ve been getting them fresh from a farm stand, then cooking them for just a couple minutes in a pot with a splash of water and some garlic salt. They’re like CRACK. We fight over them and can’t seem to get enough.
Toddler included. 10/10 underrated vegetable.

Tajin is an addictive Mexican lime salt comprised of chili and lime powder that is especially delicious when added to fruits like melons, apples, and pineapple, as well as to vegetables like jicama and cucumber.
“Use it on fruit or popcorn or mix it with rim salt to make a delicious rim for Bloody Marys and micheladas. I also put it on my eggs in the morning.”

“That’s the real tip. Nutritional yeast is something you would never think of — I didn’t even know it existed, but it makes popcorn so good!” Instagram: @undefined
“It’s so easy. I never thought it would be, but I tried it last week and it’s literally just:
Preheat oven to 375ºF, drain a can (or two) of chickpeas. Pour out onto a pan. Pat dry with towel, or don’t. It doesn’t matter too much. Throw them in the oven for 30 minutes.
(You’ll want to take them out every 10 minutes or so to move them around a bit.) Remove from oven and pour into bowl. Toss with a spoon of vegetable oil, salt, thyme, and a good spoonful of chili powder.
Pop it back into the oven another 10-15 minutes.
(I’m definitely going the full 15 minutes the next time I make these because holy hell they taste so good when they’re just perfectly crispy.)
It’s like popcorn, but nuts, but they’re chickpeas, but they’re spiced up, but they’re magic.” 6. Pork rinds are a keto staple that you can actually find for cheap.
“Seriously, a whole bag is like 250 calories and zero carbs.”
You can get a huge ass jar of them for ~ $8 . 7. Roasted dry seaweed packs will satisfy any salt cravings.
“Many people have been asking about specific brands. The one I get is a Korean brand called Gimme Organic.
I personally like the sea salt. They have 25 calories a pack and only 65 mg of sodium.
Just be careful with consuming large amounts due to iodine.”.
