    Default Some "Paleo" snack recipes - many good for Atkins if "tweaked"

    This web page starts by listing commercial "paleo" style snacks but also lists quite a few recipes to make snacks
    List of the Best Paleo Snacks of 2015 (15 You Can Buy + 27 You Can Make)

    They will need "atkinizing" by changing the honey and maple syrup etc for "legal" sweetener and making sure all other ingredients are suitable for whichever Atkins phase you are on, but I thought some of them will be good to try.

    I have just bought some aubergines so will see how their "Eggplant Jerky" recipe works out
    A bacon-ish, jerky-ish eggplant snack
    I will probably omit the sweetener (they use maple syrup) and change the balsamic vinegar for a non-sweet one as I find most USA-style recipes too sweet for me

    I recall reading an eggplant jerky recipe maybe last fall and put that on my "will try" list for this summer. I haven't done it yet, though....

    I have so many paleo recipes pinned and keto. Yay Pinterest! There are many that are Atkins friendly or adaptable. I am still saddened to see how much even they rely on sugar...healthy version or not.

    And hi Megs =)

    Hi back Elsie! Good to see you around here.

    I've noticed that about paleo recipes too: heavy on the added sugar. I very much doubt that hunter-gatherers carried bark baskets filled with honey everywhere they went.
