Forbes Living Serves Up Healthy, Fulfilling Snack Ideas
We don’t know where you are located, but, it is time for a snack where we are. It’s pretty hard to find something healthful around here, so Forbes Living staffers bring in their own to give them an afternoon boost. Here’s what we’re serving today.
Plain, raw almonds – a handful tossed into a snack size baggie is just enough to get us past the 4 PM hunger hour.
Fresh fruit – Whole fruit like peaches, which are in season, give us a sweet, juicy mid-morning push that lasts all the way until lunch time. If the fruit is in season, all the better.
Plain, low-fat Greek yogurt -- with a good sprinkle of cinnamon and an easy drizzle of organic honey. Packed full of protein with the big spice flavor boost and a taste of sweetness is a great way to get an energy kick when needed.
Slice tomatoes with reduced fat feta – Go Italian. Slice them at home the night before and set inside an airtight container. Sprinkle with crumbled feta, ground pepper, and sliced basil leaves and cover. Put in the fridge. Makes a lovely, healthful snack at any point in the day. Plus, the Forbes Living talk show staffers note it adds some class to your desk.
Be creative with healthy snacks and let us know what you.
