3 Healthy Snacks Kids Love

If your kids are anything like mine, then you are struggling to get them to eat healthy. Check these three yummy snacks that'll surely make them forget they are eating healthy.
Baked Apple slices with cinnamon
Slice up red apples and sprinkle cinnamon on them.  Bake according to the texture you prefer.  My children like them to be a little crispy so I bake them on 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Be sure to place parchment paper on the baking sheet before placing the apples on it.

Fruit Kabobs
These can be made with your child's favorite fruit. Make sure to make it colorful so it looks happy and fun.
Frozen Yogurt Dipped Strawberries
This low calorie snack is very simple to make.  All you'll need to do is dip strawberries in plain greek yogurt and freeze them.

Quick snack

Try this! Frozen blueberries in a sandwich bag as a refreshing summer time snack. I personally think frozen berries are tastier than refrigerated ones.  Let me know what you think.


Kick Start Monday!

Happy Monday ladies! Remember, your health is the most important part of your life. Be mindful of your decisions this week.

Try this quick midday snack! Strawberries, apples, and grapes. This is quick and easy and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. 

I've learned that healthy snacking is essential for boosting your metabolism. This will definitely help with weight loss as  a rapid metabolism helps the body burn calories faster.  I usually have this snack after lunch, around 2 hours before I workout.

Did you know there's protein in veggies?

I've been asked what sources of protein can we consume if we're not eating meat. Well here's a list of veggies and grains that you can eat to replace meat protein:

- Peas
For every half of cup, you'll get around 3.5 grams of protein

- Spinach
For every half cup, you'll get around 3 grams of protein

- Baked Potato
A medium potato contains around 3 grams of protein

- Broccoli
You can get around 2 grams of protein per serving

- Corn
One half cup of kernels provides around 2 grams of protein

- Brussels Sprouts
Every half cup provides around 2 grams of protein

- Chick Peas
Every serving provides around 8 grams of protein

- Artichokes
A medium sized on provides around 4 grams of protein

You don't need meat to gain energy! Try any of this in place of your meat protein for one of your meals and see how you feel.
