Fruits, Nuts & Healthy Snacks

January 4, 2010 at 11:30 pm 1 comment

After all those holiday parties and high calorie eating it is tough to resist the desire to continue over eat. One practical tip I have learned is to eat smaller meals through out the day. For example, in the morning I’ll have a piece of toast with an egg. About 2 hours later I’ll have a mid morning snack such as apples with peanut butter, cottage cheese or dried fruits and nuts. This way I’m not ravenous when lunchtime comes around and I make better choices regarding what I eat and how much. Another useful suggestion is to package dried fruits and nuts in small baggies to take with you when you’re out and about. Consequently, you won’t be tempted to stop for fast food.

FromTheFarm.com has a variety of options for healthy snacks. Here they are:

Nuts:

Walnuts: rich in Omega 3

Almonds

Dried Fruits:

Dates

Prunes

White Peaches

Nectarines

Pears

Angelino Plums

Yellow Peaches

All Natural Fruit Bars: 100% all-natural. Contains two servings of fruit and is gluten, dairy, wheat and nut free! No preservatives or additives. Comes in 4 flavors: Marionberry Blueberry, Marionberry Strawberry, Marionberry and Marionberry with Dark Chocolate. These are the consistency of a thick fruit leather. Convenient for after sports snack, on backpacking trips, pocket or purse. My favorites are the Marionberry and the Marionberrry with dark chocolate.
