Healthy Snacks

Healthy snacks can be quick and easy, but most people don't think of the healthy foods first. Why? Because we're bombarded with food company advertising for the highly processed, plastic, fake foods.

The worst part of all is that the food companies are targeting kids with their advertising on kids TV programs, games on the internet and prizes at fast food restaurants. In my opinion, that should be illegal.

The point made, here's some healthy snacks for both kids and adult kids to enjoy:

  • fresh fruit
  • cut up veggies
    • plain
    • with homemade guacamole
    • with homemade salsa
    • with nut butter
  • popcorn made in a hot air popper seasoned with Celtic Sea Salt and real butter (in moderation)
  • sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, soaked for 7 hours then dehydrated at 135 degrees F in an oven or dehydrator for 8-12 hours
  • almonds, pecans or walnuts, soaked for 7 hours then dehydrated at 135 degrees F in an oven or dehydrator for 12-24 hours
  • trail mix made of dehydrated nuts, seeds and raisins
  • fruit smoothie - See the September 12,2006, post on my Healthy Eating blog
