Snack Attack

I'm a fan of meals. Breakfast, lunch, dinner...I'll take all three, please. But I also have a soft spot in my heart for snacks. There is a particularly long space in my day between lunch and dinner, and I've gotta fill it with something. (Besides work, I guess.) So today I'm sharing with you a few of my favorite snacks.

Please note that these are my attempts at somewhat healthy nibbles. There is a distinct difference in my mind between a snack and a treat. Snacks keep you from gnawing your arm off between meals. They are (hopefully) nutritious and should have some sort of stick-to-your-ribs quality. Treats are sweet, and include items such as ice cream, cake, cookies, pudding, brownies...I could keep going, but I think you get my drift.

Now, on to the snacks.

2 graham crackers + 1 wedge Laughing Cow cheese

1 banana (or your favorite fruit) + 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt + 3 tablespoons granola

11 chocolate covered almonds

1/2 cup applesauce + 2 tablespoons dried cranberries

Happy snacking!


  1. Great snack ideas! Love the cheese with graham crackers...a little sweet and salty always makes me happy. I'm with you on the three meals a day...although if I could just eat all day long that'd make me happier.

  2. I could skip the meals and just snack all day long! I'm a huge fan of pita chips and a few slices of cheese myself!
