Simple And Savory Snack Platter

The keto diet’s low-carb, high-fat approach may seem unusual for some, but it offers many health benefits besides weight loss. One aspect of the keto diet that appeals to so many is its flexibility when it comes to what foods you can or can’t eat.

That flexibility sets keto apart from other diets because it works well for those with different dietary needs, preferences, or restrictions to successfully take part in it. That is good news for vegans who might want to lose some weight or just take part in some of the advantages that keto can do for their body.

Most snack platters get their protein from the cheese, summer sausage, proscuitto, or similar foods. With this version, colorful vegetables, savory dips, and sweet dark chocolate take the spotlight.

This plate has all the nutrients necessary to stay alert and focused even during that afternoon slump.

Ingredients:

  • Dark chocolate
  • ½ cup Pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup pecans
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts
  • ½ cup toasted, unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 Belgian endive heads
  • 2 stalks of white celery
  • 12-14 radishes (about 1 bunch)
  • 1 cups cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • ½ cup blackberries
  • ½ cup gherkins
  • ½ cup olives
  • Grain-free crackers
  • Vegan-friendly smoked paprika dip
  • Kale pesto

How To Make The Guacamole:

  1. Pit 2 avocados and use a spoon to scoop them into a bowl. Use a fork to mash them until somewhat chunky.
  2. Add 1.5 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, 1.5 tablespoon lime juice, salt, pepper, cilantro, and your choice of chopped red or spring onions to the bowl. Stir with your spoon.

How To Make The Platter:

  1. Wash the vegetables and slice them, then arrange on a large plate with guacamole, smoked paprika dip, and kale pesto.
  2. Intersperse the nuts, seeds, olives, pickles, and crackers with the vegetables.
  3. To satisfy a sweet tooth, add berries and vegan-friendly dark chocolate.
