Let's Talk About Snacks, Baby

Sorry, I couldn't resist a little Salt & Peppa reference today :)

I love love love snacks!  I usually eat at least 2 snacks a day.

Here are some of my current faves that are super quick and easy.

1. Nuts
Nuts are so healthy and filling, but it is easy to over snack on them when eating them straight from the can.  That's why these packs are my current favorite snack:
Planters NUT-rition, Snack Packs, Heart Healthy MIx

I love the convenience and portion control of these mixed nut packs.  The heart healthy mix is my favorite, because it has pistachios!  I also like the energy mix (found at Target) packs.

2. Fruit
Fruit is super satisfying, because it is sweet and juicy (most of the time).  Right now I am loving cuties!

They are so much easier to peel than regular oranges and they are so awesomely delicious.  I throw 2 in my lunch bag for a morning snack most days.  I also enjoy apples, bananas, strawberries and pears.

3. Wasa Crackers
Wasa's are the perfect vehicle for so many snack-y combinations.  They even have a whole recipe section on their website.
Light Rye

My favorite way to eat these crackers are with a smear of Justin's Almond Butter or Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese Wedge.  

What are your favorite healthy snacks?

Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

I love Wasa with Justin'a Almond Butter! The chocolate is my absolute favorite. To make an even healthier recipe, I started making my own version. It's very simple: Almond Butter, Honey and cocoa powder. It is soooo good with Wasa, probably my favorite dessert! I got the idea from the Wasa Twitter handle, @Wasa_NA, you should check them out.
