I’m a HUGE proponent of the creative snack. I truly believe a snack (or a meal for that matter) is ultimately more satisfying when you prepare it yourself. There’s something about the process, it’s rewarding. Think about it…
You have a case of the munchies.
You want… "something", anything but your not sure what.
You can either…
- Open the pantry, grab a bag of chips, go to town and blow your points/calories for the day.
- Get a controlled portion of your favorite snack in a 100 calorie pack and be ultimately unsatisfied because it’s so freakin’ small. OR
- Whip up an English Muffin Tomato Pizza or Baked Zucchini Fries. Maybe a Quick Quesadilla or even a Brownie Sundae!
Choice C may take more time but it can give you a healthier, lighter, more satisfying snack. Plus it makes you slow down and appreciate the food. I don’t know about you but I can eat an AWFUL lot of chips in 10 minutes. I’d rather take that 10 minutes, prepare something fun and enjoy a mini meal instead of being pi$$ed that a chocolate chip cookies is 200 calories.
So I’m here to ask what YOUR favorite snack creations are. Whether you use a product like laughing cow cheese or keep it simple with fresh ingredients like my Simply Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms, we are ready to be inspired! :)
