If you are on the Paleo diet you should be satiated between meals with no need to snack, but sometimes you might need something extra if your meal was smaller than usual or you only had time for a quick lunch. You can pick one to maximum two of the below options per day.

1. Paleo carnitas egg muffins

Muffins are a really easy way to use up leftover cooked meat and make for portable protein as well. These make a perfect Paleo snack!


– ½ cup organic chicken, diced
– 1 tbsp. olive oil
– 1 onion, diced
– 9 eggs
– 3 tbsp. coconut milk
– Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat your oven to 320 F. Line a muffin tin with foil liners. In a skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil, onion, and tomato and cook until the tomatoes begin to soften. Remove from the heat. Stir in the eggs, milk, flour, salt and pepper and beat until combined. Put a large spoonful of your mixture into each cup. Evenly distribute the filling into 12 muffin cups and bake for about 30 min. Serve warm and enjoy.

2. Chia breakfast pudding

The good thing about these puddings is that you can make them up the night before and they are ready to eat in the morning with no additional prep.


– 1/2 cup coconut milk
– 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
– Zest of 1/2 lime
– 1 tbsp. chia seeds
– 2 tsp. linseed / flaxseed
– 2 tsp. slivered almonds
– 1/2 cup frozen berries


Mix all ingredients together and pour into a jar. You can garnish if you like and place in the fridge overnight, or for a minimum of 4 hours. It’s also a great afternoon snack or if you are working out that night.

3. Curried, baked zucchini chips

This is a healthier version of chips than you can find at your grocery store. These tasty curried zucchini chips is full of flavor and zest.


– 2 medium/large zucchini, sliced
– 1 tbsp. olive oil
– ¼ tsp. curry powder
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– ⅛ tsp. garlic powder


Preheat your oven to 220 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with 2 sheets of parchment paper and lightly brush them with olive oil. Place the sliced zucchini in a single layer. Sprinkle with olive oil. Mix all dry ingredients and sprinkle over zucchini and bake for 1 hour. Serve and enjoy!

4. Radicchio wraps

There are many wraps that you cab buy on the market, often made of nut flours. And while they may be a better than the gluten-filled ones, there’s even a better option – avocado wraps!


– 1 head radicchio leaves, separated
– 1 ripe avocado, sliced
– 1 apple, sliced thinly
– ½ lb. pastured turkey, chopped
– Toothpicks


Place radicchio leaves on your work surface to create four open wraps. Layer the avocado, apple slices, and turkey evenly on each. Bundle up the wraps and secure with toothpicks.

5. Paleo snack mix

A quick and easy to make Paleo party mix that’s gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and perfect for snacking.


– 3 cups mixed nuts
– 1 tsp. garlic infused olive oil
– Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place nuts in a bowl and combine with olive oil until well coated. Use another bowl and combine salt and spices. Sprinkle over nuts and stir until combined.
