Did Someone Say Snacks?!

HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS

Hey, Doll!

Hope you’re having a fit & fabulous day! I have created a list of healthy snacks for my dolls who are trying to start a healthy lifestyle or wish to continue along their journey of healthy living…

1. Veggies & Guac

  • 1  pack whole guacamole minis
  • 1 cup carrot sticks
  • 1 cup celery sticks

Total: 170 calories

2. Fruit and Cheese*

  • 1/3 cup dried apricots
  • 1 oz Gouda cheese

Total: 290 calories

*Researchers believe that calcium found in dairy helps you burn more fat!

3. Steamed Edamame*

  • 3/4 cup edamame
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 chili powder
  • steam edamame, toss with oil, and season with garlic and chili powder

Total: 200 calories

*Low fat snacks high in soy protein, like edamame, may support weight loss according to research in the International Journal of Obesity.

4. Steamed Artichoke*

  • 1 cooked artichoke
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • dash of salt
  • Remove stems from artichokes, and stand upright in a steamer pot with water. Cover, and steam until done 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Mix together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt to drizzle over artichoke.

Total: 160 calories

*Artichokes are number one for antioxidant levels among vegetables.

5. Apple and Almond Dip, with Cinnamon*

  • 1 large sliced apple
  • 2 tsp almond butter
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon

Total: 187 calories

Cinnamon helps rein in blood-sugar spikes after a meal, making you less likely to crash before lunchtime.
