I love when accidents turn out to be good things! Last night, while watching Whiplash with the hubby, I put broccoli florets in the oven to roast, forgot to get the timer going, and got really into the movie. By the time I got up and realized the broccoli florets were still in the oven, they got a good char on them. BUT, they turned out so delicious because they were crunchy and fun-sized, and the pink Himalayan salt I sprinkled on them prior to roasting added to the snacky f
This shredded carrot/raisin/orange juice salad is one that my mom and Safta used to make for us when we were little, so it reminds me of my childhood, especially of my after school snacks. Not sure where the origins of this sweet and refreshing salad are from, but in Israel (where both my parents grew up), my mom and dad had it a lot as kids. In addition to it being healthy and delicious, it's super simple to make: shredded carrots (shred to your liking manually or in a food
Step off, hubs! My two roasted cauliflowers (that you so graciously bought for me...us...at sprouts yesterday)!! I clearly, CLEARLY, have addiction issues. To make your very own cauliflowers, season to taste or preference (ideas: salt and pepper, olive oil, paprika, zaatar) Roast on 425 for one hour--but check after 45 mintues, as ovens vary. #hubby #roastedcauliflower #appetizers #snack
Our family loves to give the gift of health.This holiday season it comes in the form of organic dried fruit (tropical fusion by Made in Nature) mixed with lightly roasted pepitas. #healthygifts #healthysnacks #snack #driedfruit #pepitas
Oh my! I wish the internt had a scratch and smell option because these baked apples I just took out of the oven smell insanely good! They're also an adaptation of one of the recipes I share in my Fall Detox!!
•4 apples, cut in half (remove core and seeds)
•4 tbsp coconut oil
•1 cup gluten free oats
•1 tsp pure vanilla extract
•1 tsp apple pie spice
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the apples to a baking sheet, cut side up. In a separate bowl, add coco
The hubs is taking a 1,200 mile (each way) road trip to Las Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker, so I stocked him up on some healthy snacks, including Kind Bars, nuts, seeds, freeze dried fruit and fruit leathers, roasted coconut flakes, and Two Barnes Clean-Cut Jerk beef jerky.
I may be your snack lady, but may Lady Luck be on your side at the tables, babe! #snack #roadtripsnacks #twobarnescleancutbeefjerky
Smoothie Popsicles I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream for breakfast (the continuation of their breakfast, that is)! Relax...it's leftover strawberry-banana smoothie that we put in Popsicle molds last night after dinner, because we knew it would make a fun and completely healthy (thus, reasonable) breakfast;) It's all about how you package things and present them--and ice cream pops are quite the package. #smoothiepopsicles #snack #familyfriendly #glutenfree
I always prepare hardboiled eggs on Sundays so that I can have them at the ready for school lunches, a quick snack, deviled eggs, egg salads, or for slicing onto a chef salad. I find that prepping and organizing during the weekend sets me up for a less stressful week. What do you do to make your week easier? #eggs #snack #schoollunch #preppingfortheweek #hardboiledeggs
Yogurt Bar I placed the whole milk yogurts with the optional mix-ins/toppings, which included raspberries, blueberries, gluten free granola, and raw walnuts on the table, and the little ladies customized their yogurts, and, as you can see, showed me they like the "build-your-own" types of meals. I know this isn't fancy, and it is most definitely not gourmet, but it fits the bill--my bill--nutritious, quick, easy, and completely family-friendly! #yogurtbar #breakfast #snack #b
