We’ve been working hard this week at finding peace in our hearts and peace in our home. I’d say all that hard work calls for a little sweet treat … but without the guilt. I try to always have healthy snacks on hand for my family to munch on – whether we’re enjoying a quiet evening at home or we’re on the go. That way, it’s easy to forgo unhealthy options. Right?
3 Healthy Snack Ideas
Popcorn is a favorite snack in our house. And it’s super easy to pop yourself in a brown paper bag.
- Measure 1/4 cup popcorn kernels into a brown paper lunch bag.
- Fold just the very top of the bag over so the popcorn kernels don’t spill out.
- Microwave until there are more than 3 seconds between popping sounds.
- Remove bag, being careful not to burn yourself on the steam and enjoy!
Almonds are one of the healthiest nuts you can eat. We love them in our house! According to the experts:
- Packed with nutrients and antioxidants.
- Can lower cholesterol.
- Helpful in aiding your weight loss.
3. Fiber One Cheesecake Bars
I have to be careful with my sugar intake. I also try hard to eat a healthy, balanced diet so that I can maintain my weight. I mean, as a mother of five – it’s a necessity, but not always easy! Sometimes you just want to treat yourself. And who doesn’t love cheesecake? I mean really. But, cheesecake is not exactly a food we think of as healthy, right? Fiber One has made it possible to indulge in a sweet treat of cheesecake with their new Fiber One Cheesecake Bars. These bars will satisfy your craving for cheesecake – with their guilt-free take on a decadent dessert. Each bar has only 150 calories, 6 grams fat, and 20% daily value of fiber! Not to mention the flavors – salted caramel or strawberry! Yum. Also, another bonus – they’re perfect for tossing in your bag for on the go snacking. Something I love to do. My kids love them, too!
