I’m probs the biggest snacker ever. Three meals just isn’t my thing.

Life’s too jammed packed to whip up multi-grain pancakes for breaky, salmon with a side of organic greens for lunch, & grilled chicken & lentils for dinner.

Plus. I’m bored with three meals. Snacking keeps your metabolism up.

When people ask me about a meal plan, I don’t really know what to say. It switches all the time- depending on my mood, the season ( << for veggies & fruits ), & if Aunt Flow’s in town ( lolz ).

Here’s five healthy snacks that I’ve been obsessing over lately:

1.} Eggs: I scramble two & then throw red onion, tomatoes, & avocado slices on top. Add a dash of pepper & you’re good to go.

2.} Sunflower seed butter: put it on banana slices, apple wedges, low-carb toast, or eat it plain! YUM.

3.} Mini bell peppers: besides the fact that they’re so damn cute, they make a fantastic snack. They’re filled with Vit C, Vit A, & tons of fiber. I whip up the lowest calorie dressing the world, slice the cuties up, & add lemon. Die!

4.} Spelt rice cakes: these feel like you’re eating carbs in all the right ways. These rice cakes are super low cal & low in carbs. I add sunflower seed butter, a bit of honey, & a sprinkle of cinnamon. This is one of my favorite snacks ever!

5.} Watermelon + pineapple: love both of these fruit because they contain a lot of water. I put lemon ( yes, lemon ) on top & add a few spoonfuls of low fat cottage cheese or Greek yogurt for a quick, easy snack.

Any snacks I’m missing? Tell, tell.

A good friend of mine was released from the hospital today after hip surgery. I made this healthy version of “ice cream” for her because who doesn’t love frozen sweets…ESP after the sicko hospital?!

Lately I’ve become obsessed with two-three ingredient recipes.

Whyyyyy? Obvious reasons.

They’re quick + easy. But even more so, there’s not a million ingredients. Smaller recipes contain less cals/sugar/carbs. No one wants to eat something filled with ingredients that they can’t pronounce. Right ; )?

My typical rule of thumb: I try to steer clear of grocery store items that have more than five ingreds. If you don’t know what they are then either look into it ( << you know, Google.com…don’t turn a blind eye to what you’re eating! Be informed! ) or MOVEEEE on down the aisle.

Anyway to make this combine pineapple slices, mint leaves, & pomegranate seeds in a food processor. Freeze for an hour. Add mint + pomegranate seeds for garnish.

Ta da.

Totally a cure for anyone’s sweet tooth ; ).
