Snacks may not be necessary from a strict nutrition point of view but once in a while you really want a snack. Fortunately, there are plenty of different Paleo snacks which are quick and easy to prepare.
First of all, fresh fruits are excellent snacks and despite that many of them contain plenty of sugar they are still part of most Paleo diets. Just remember that the fruit you buy in the supermarket is much sweeter and contains less fibers than fruits which were available a couple thousands years ago. Vegetables are also good Paleo snacks. Nuts and dried fruits have the advantage that they can be stored for a long time, making it easy for you to have snacks available at home.
Still, even if you are not into fruits or vegetables, you have plenty of simple Paleo snacks to choose from. Here just a few suggestions, all of which are quick and easy to prepare.
An easy solution is to buy energy bars, there are plenty of Paleo-friendly bars, even Paleo Diet Bars. They are easy to store and can generally be stored for quite some time.
