Three Things: Simple, Healthy Snack Recipes

I go through food spurts, when I eat the same things over and over again. I can't get enough of say, prunes, and then one morning I wake up and have had enough of them. Then I move on to a new food obsession. So these are mine for right now. They are pretty healthy which means that I don't feel like a pig after eating them. So what follows can be taken in the light of mini-recipes for healthy snacks. Enjoy! 

1. Cucumber Cottage Cheese Bites
Cut up half a peeled cucumber into round slices. Mix up half a cup or so of cottage cheese with a few squeezes of lemon. Season it with liberal salt and pepper and mix again. Spread the cottage cheese onto a cucumber slice like a tiny, round open-faced sandwich. Or think of it as a fancy appetiser. Drink with a flute of champagne. Just kidding. 

2. Twigs with Nuts
This recipe is so simple it doesn't even merit the word recipe. Just mix your favourite twig-shaped, fibertastic cereal with bits of chopped pecans. Add whole milk. Done. 

3. Apples and Yogurt Dip
Cut up an apple in your favourite cut-apple shape, whether this be round with the core missing or wedges or something entirely different and creative. Whatever. Moving on. Now mix a few tablespoons of vanilla (or whatever flavour you would like) Greek yogurt with a few tablespoons of roasted flax seeds. I like mine nice and grainy. You may prefer a smoother texture, with less flax seeds. Dip apples into dip. Eat them.

  1. This brings back memories of those American Girl snack ideas that were always in the magazines! Those were the coolest. These are great too.
