Primal Blueprint Snack List

by Mark Sisson: The
Salt/Blood Pressure Debate



So you’ve
ditched the bags of chips and boxes of crackers and cookies. You’ve
found creative
uses for all the junk food
that used to make up your regular
diet. And you’ve Primalized
your pantry
, stocking up on all the Primal essentials. With
nary a can of Cheese Whiz or a bag of Funyuns
in sight, what’s a Primal guy or gal to do when a snack attack
strikes? I get this question fairly often, and my answer is usually
pretty straightforward. But this one from Melanie got me thinking
about it again.

given up chips and crackers and pretzels and granola and all the
other high-carb, processed snacks I use to eat between meals.
I’ve been Primal for about 6 weeks now and though I’m
finding that I rarely have a craving for snack food (I’m
hardly ever hungry!) it would still be nice to have a list of
Primal approved snacks that require little to no preparation.
Thanks for all that you do!


That “little
to no preparation” bit caught my attention. What are the snack staples
for Primal eaters that are just “grab and go”? Here is my attempt
at a list followed by a few easy snack recipes. I’d love to hear
