More Brie Please

While at home, I was able to indulge in some deeeelicious snacks.  Some of them included foods I wouldn’t typically splurge on or keep in my apartment (such as cranberry fruit spread….who has that in their refridgerator?  Apparently my parents do.  Lucky me).   Anyways, if you find your stomach growling, try one of the snacks below.  Tasty and satisfying, any of these snacks will help hold you over and satisfy your cravings till your next meal.

Brie, my absolute favorite cheese, paired with some cranberry fruit spread on Kashi’s Stoneground 7 Grain crackers.  Delicious.  Tip:  It’s best to let the brie sit out for about an hour to warm up before eating.  Helps to cultivate its innate creaminess.

Walnuts fresh off the tree near my house!  These babies require a hammer and some fingerwork, but they have far more taste than the deshelled ones sold in the store.  If you’ve ever cracked a walnut, you know what it’s well worth it.  Healthy fact:  Walnuts are a great plant source of protein and are significantly higher in Omega 3’s, the healthy kind of fat, than other nuts.

Some Garden of Eatin blue corn chips with pico de gallo and a little guacamole.  Mmm.  Healthy fact:  Blue corn chips have a lower Glycemic Index and starch content than yellow corn chips, meaning they break down slower and prevent spikes in blood sugar levels.

I love Kombucha, and apparently a lot of other people do too because it seems to be the rage these days!  It comes in a variety of flavors.  I particularly enjoy the citrus Kombucha.  Healthy fact: Kombucha is loaded with probiotics, which help aid in our digestion process.

AND AS ALWAYS, MY FAVORITE:  BANANA WITH PEANUT BUTTER

I never get sick of this snack.  Mid-morning, mid-afternoon, for dessert, whenever my stomach signals its hungry, I’ll gladly reach for a banana and a little peanut butter.  Healthy fact: For a punch of protein and potassium, pig out on this snack.  The carbs and protein are also a great combo for a post-workout, aiding in a quick recovery

    yum yum yum! i love snacks. and blue corn garden of eatin chips, those were like my childhood pastime right there. I used to eat them by the bag! (Oh to be a metabolizing machine little girl again.) 🙂

    As for the bikram, I liiiked it. It went by super fast surprisingly for a 90 min class. But it was def different! Prob not my fave, but something I’d do once a week, or so.

    Today I successfully ran my third three mile run this week! I’m finding the more time I take, the easier it is. I was always so intimidated, because when I used to try and run, I’d get burnt out before 1 mile, because I would run too fast. Silly me. It’s not so bad when I take my time, and I don’t even have to stop and catch my breath! I’m hoping I’ll build up stamina, and eventually run longer and/or faster runs. 🙂

    Yum! I never ever get sick of bananas either – eat them every morning and maybe another at night 🙂 I also love those blue corn chips, haven’t had them in a while, but that will have to change very soon!
