I don’t know about you, but I always fin myself snacking lots in summer. I don’t know if it is the fact that I have more time, tend to eat dinner later, or just the fact that there are so many snack-able foods around! Because I am a snack machine this time of year, I usually try to stick to healthier options and for me, that usually means lots and lots of fruit!
As I’ve said before, fruit is my favorite food…by far. I am fairly certain I could live on an entirely fruit diet. Well, fruit and bread. Throw some cheese in too. Oh and wine have to have wine. Maybe a cheeseburger now and then… Ok, ok, maybe not an entirely fruit diet after all.
Another thing I’ve been loving to snack on lately?
Trader Joe’s Baked Lentil Chips and Egg White Salad. You guys, if you haven’t tried this, drop everything and run to your nearest TJ’s. Go. You can read the rest when you get back…
Ok, now that you have it in front of you you know I’m not lying. It is awesome. And at only 50 calories per serving (for the salad) it is most definitely a sensible snack!
So, even though I’ve been doing sweet, ripe, raw fruit like it’s my job, I’ve been using it in other ways too…
Strawberry Almond Cakies. This little babies will be coming up on the blog soon. You can practically smelling them huh??
