Let's Make "Linner" a Thing
Snacking in the afternoon should be recognized in its full glory.
What’s that sound? Is it the birds chirping? The neighbors sharing a laugh on a morning stroll? A lawn mower waking up after a long winter of hibernation? Maybe it’s the collective sound of a thousand flowers blooming at once? You guessed it—it’s the sound of springtime!
Although the world is certainly a little bit crazy right now, spring is in full swing! To celebrate this joyous season, we’ve curated a vibrant menu for a dreamy full day of eating centered around seasonal produce. We hope that you can find some solace in these delicious (and of course, keto-friendly) recipes inspired by the warmer weather.
But first, a quick roundup! Here’s what’s in season right now:
If you’re in the mood for a simple, delightful make-ahead breakfast, look no further than this crustless quiche packed full of fresh asparagus and spinach! This recipe is foolproof: all you need to do is chop the veggies and whisk some eggs for a breakfast that will last you all week.
This salad incorporates everything you could want in a delicious keto lunch—spicy, seasonal arugula, creamy avocado, crunchy bacon and tangy goat cheese. For an extra nutrient and flavor boost, toss in a handful of whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. Dill, parsley, and chives would all be divine!
Brighten up your day with this tangy lemon and ginger stir-fry that’s a perfect complement to whatever fresh vegetables you have on hand. We're dreaming about asparagus, green beans, and peas, but broccoli and scallions would be delicious in here as well. Toss some chicken into the pan and you've got a perfect meal!
This impossibly simple recipe is the perfect canvas for creativity. All you need is butter, Fat Snax Lemony Lemon cookies, whipped cream, and whatever toppings you’d like. We recommend fresh berries! For an added burst of springy freshness, garnish this dessert with the zest of a lemon.
This gorgeous dip is packed full of seasonal herbs and green peas instead of chickpeas. Any fresh herbs will do, but we think that mint would be especially delicious here. Serve with your favorite keto-friendly crackers, chips, or sliced veggies.
We hope that we’ve inspired you to take advantage of some of the beautiful vegetables that are in season right now. If you try out any of these springtime recipes, don’t forget to tag us on Instagram @eatfatsnax! We love to see what our Fat Snax Family is up to in the kitchen.
