Tasty Tuesday – Apple Almond Butter

Mmmmm, yum! This makes about 4 servings, each about 43 calories, 7.3g of carbs, 1.5g of Fiber… a great snack you can store in the refrigerator (in a sealed container) for next time!

What would you pair this with? I might pair it with some celery or an apple, but you might just find me eating this on it’s own… 🙂

Superfood Saturday – Almonds

To help satisfy hunger and boost energy between meals, grab some almonds! High in protein and fiber, these little nuts are quite the superfood.

Almonds are the most nutritionally-dense nut, meaning they offer the highest concentration of overall nutrients per calorie and per ounce.

Great to add to things such as oats, yogurt, and they are perfectly tasty on their own!

Saturday Snack Spotlight – Graham Crackers, Cream Cheese and Grapes

Snacktiiiime! It’s crunchy. It’s sweet. It’s easy, and diabetic-friendly!

Spread a tablespoon of cream cheese on 2 graham cracker squares and top with 1/4 cup halved grapes – grapes are a great source of potassium and are low on the Glycemic Index!

I love this because I love all of the items separately, together you get a perfect world of sweet, creamy, and crunchy!

How does this combination sound to you?

Saturday Snack Spotlight – YoNuggets

I came across this recipe by chance, and since I love Greek yogurt and fruit, it sounded yummy to me, so I made them! I altered the recipe by adding 1 Scoop of Cafe Latte Shakeology, and I used banana instead of cantaloupe!

Have you ever tried these? Would you?

(Note: I found these adorable popout ice trays at TJ Maxx’s home section… I froze these, let them thaw a bit, and they popped right out!)
