Spicy Cereal Mix

Store-bought snack mixes are loaded with sodium and sugar (and often other, harder-to-pronounce additives), but making your own is super easy. Portion the mix out in snack bags for a quick grab-and-go lunchbox or road-trip snack.

Crispy Roasted Kale

Curly kale is excellent for roasting. The tender leaves become crisp and crunchy when dressed in a light mixture of olive oil and kosher salt. Be sure to place the kale in one layer on the sheet tray—overcrowding will steam the kale rather than crisp it.

Spiced Wonton Chips

For a sweet, crunchy treat, Ellie turns to a surprise ingredient: wonton wrappers. Slice them into wedges, coat with sugar and five-spice powder, and bake until crisp.
