Unique Snack Recipe Ideas

Sponsored - As we start school online or work routines, the Kentucky Beef Council has some creative options on how to fight the afternoon munchies without the guilt.

“Snacks that are easy to keep and store, but also add to the nutritional intake throughout the day can keep you energized but also satisfied.” explains Anna Burnett, Consumer of Director Affairs for the Kentucky Beef Council, “Beef provides over 10 essential nutrients while keeping the great taste of beef we all love.”

We have all found ourselves looking for a snack between meals that is fulfilling, but also one that is high in nutritional content. Below are some of the fan favorite snacks from the Kentucky Beef Council.
