snack ideas, please
I have a pretty easy time coming up with and taking time to prepare meals. Snacks, on the other hand, don't get as much devotion and are usually something I want right now because I'm starving. Or they need to be easy to pack because I know I will be starving later. I get in ruts...
Lately, I usually have:
-oatcakes (thick crackers made from oats and often flavored. they're pretty tasty)
-rice cakes or rye crackers with peanut butter or low fat cream cheese
-whole grain muffin or cookie
-dried fruit + nuts (favorites are dates + almonds, apricots + walnuts, figs + almonds)
-little cheesies (babybel...haven't seen string cheese here)
-carrots and hummus
Sooo...pretty basic (I feel like all I need to add are Goldfish and I'll be your average 3 year old). And slightly boring! Please enlighten me with some new ideas.
(a quick google search brought me to this blog post with lots of ideas)
