When it comes to snacking, it’s easy to reach for the not-so-good-stuff. But with just a little effort, you can have a healthy snack that’s delicious and satisfying instead. Here are five ideas to get you started:
• Loaded Apple Slices
Core an apple, then cut it crosswise so that you end up with rings that are about ¼” thick. Spread with peanut butter, dust with cacao powder, and top with some cereal of your choice or dried coconut.
• Froyo Fruit Cups
Spoon vanilla (or plain sweetened with a little honey) Greek Yogurt into a lined mini-muffin pan. Add a few pieces of fruit (blueberries, raspberries, dried cranberries) and nuts. Freeze for a couple hours and remove from the pan.
• Turkey Avocado Wraps
Peel and slice an avocado. Wrap pieces of avocado with a slice of turkey and pin with a toothpick.
• PB Rice Cakes
Spread nut butter of your choice onto plain rice cakes and top with banana slices and chia seeds.
• Bell Peppers & Guacamole
One avocado, some fresh or bottled lime juice, salt, and pepper are all it takes to make guacamole. Peel, dice, and mash the avocado with the other ingredients and slice up a bell pepper to dip into the guac you just made.
