    Light Laughing Cow Cheese wedge spread on celery! The Garlic and Herb variety is a BURST of flavor that completes the celery crunch—it’s not chocolate but it tastes great anyway.

    My kids are big trail mix eaters, but don’t like the almonds or the cashews. They end up with me and I love them. But I think my favorite snack is a home grown orange from my grandparents front yard. California oranges are my favorite!

    Lately it has been trailmix. Just a little goes a long way and seems to feel me up until dinner. I love all the different nuts and raisins. It gives you sweet, salty just a bit of everything.

    Well, we love alot of healthy snacks around here. I am not too big on unhealthy snacks, actually. Chips just don’t do it for me. One thing my kids and I love is to mix cottage cheese with ranch mix and eat it on whole grain crackers.

    I love that you can put fresh spinach in almost anything without altering the taste. My favorite healthy snack is a mixed berry smoothie with spinach and flax seed and a banana for the sweetener. Healthy but delicious!

    Rich and Mallory says:

    Oh I have so many favorites. I am a big fruit eater and could live off of Watermelon and apples if possible.

    I recently have started to munch on Special K crackers. 17 crackers for 90 calories…not bad. And if I am adventurous I add a wedge of Light Laughing Cow Cheese (Garlic and Herb). AMAZING…it is a perfect afternoon snack to curb the afternoon munchies.

    Anyways, great giveaway!!

  36. 36
    Stephanie says:

    I’ve always loved apples with peanut butter. It’s not always healthy (such as when I use more pb than apple!) but when I limit it to the serving size recommended, it’s a healthy way to get fruit and protein together. And delicious!

  37. 37
    Laura says:

    I love hummus with veggies. Hummus is nice and creamy so it doesn’t feel like you are getting cheated.
