Lately, some of the healthy snacks I have been enjoying, especially for breakfast, are bananas and apples with peanut butter, Multigrain Cheerios with milk, Nature Valley Granola Thins, and smoothies. All of them are quick and easy to eat or grab and go once you buy them. My new “100 Best Health Foods” book(from Goodwill $.50) talks about how good grains, apples, and bananas are good for you. Apples are about 60 calories and have been known to lower “bad” cholesterol and prevent colon cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. I’ve recently realized that drinking more water, eating breakfast, and eating fruits, veggies, or grains decreases hunger and makes you feel a lot better, from personal experience!
I LOVE smoothies. You can put virtually anything you don’t like into one, with other things that you do, and you wont taste it! I put whatever I happen to have in the kitchen into mine, which has never turned out bad. Most of mine consist of frozen strawberries, frozen peaches, canned pineapple, orange juice (sometimes milk), yogurt, bananas, flax seed, honey, spinach leaves, etc.. I’ve even had carrots and cucumbers in mine before! Note:(Adding more frozen items, even ice, gives it a smoother blend.) It is the greatest snack I could ever quickly make in my opinion!
