An Egg-cellent Snack

Seasonal, Snacks

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday! Now, for me, Easter can hang around for a little longer. I got some creative colorful snacks for those post-Easter days. Simple tie-dyed hardboiled eggs for some protein when I’m on the go! What a way to eat! Adds a little bit of color and sunshine to my mediocre day when I grab one of these!

To make it a well rounded breakfast, add a scoop of protein powder to add in that must-have protein! I use Vega Vanilla Protein (Amazon Affiliate Link). It contains only 80 calories, no added sugar, 25g of plant based protein, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and has 2 servings of your daily greens. Woot!

Directions

  1. Cut the large carrots into round slices. Then using your knife, cut out 3 triangle slices at the top to make your tulip shape.
  2. Cut the cucumber into round slices. Then cut a large ‘V’ into the slices to make your leaf shapes.
  3. Attach both the cucumber leaf and the tulip carrot on to the toothpick. Stick the finished flower into a cucumber, apple, or styrofoam block to have the flowers stand up together. Enjoy!
