A Real Snack

I have admitted in the past that I have the worst habit of snacking. I snack mindlessly in the kitchen when I’m cooking, on the phone, thinking, hungry, full, bored… You get the idea.This afternoon I was feeling a little hungry so I decided to make a “real snack” of the things I was grazing.

I combined fruit (banana, blubes, apple), greek yogurt, granola and almond butter for a delicious snack with staying power. This was so much better than eating that same amount of food, but not feeling like I had anything!IMG 9715 thumb A Real Snack

This will wear off, but for now I am obsessed with how cute my cat sleeps. I don’t want to be that annoying pet owner, but I want to eat him.IMG 9714 thumb A Real Snack

Dessert find! I spotted these at the store yesterday and somehow they ended up going home with me. Not sure how that happened, but I’m glad it did icon wink A Real Snack

This is some of the best 100 calories you can spend on a treat! IMG 9694 thumb A Real Snack

Yum! I dipped this bar in granola because I LOVE granola with anything ice cream. But, these are amazing either way! Just try not to eat 3 at a time… IMG 9693 thumb A Real Snack

Fourth 5K! I agreed to run a 5K tomorrow morning with my friend Susan. I’m just running for fun since I did 11 miles today and just got back from a long walk with the dogs. Wish me survival luck!!!

Question: What’s your favorite yummy and satisfying snack?

Me: I always forget to make them, but I love Vitatops with PB and yogurt!

    I LOVE those truffle bars, but that is exactly why I had to stop buying them! Wayyyyy too easy to say “well, it’s just another 100 calories” and eat bar after bar. Too good!

    My favorite snack…probably something with almond or peanut butter!

  2. says

    It’s okay to brag talk about your cat; cats don’t seem to get as much love in blog land as dogs do.
    My favorite snack is probably pb and graham crackers, because, yes, I’m 5.

    Have good time at the 5k!

  3. says

    I love my cat and probably talk a little too much about her, too (in person, though!). So I don’t mind when you talk about how cute your cat is!

    Speaking of Vitatops, have you found them in your SoCal costco? I live in LA and I cannot find them in mine :(

    Hope you had fun at your race today!

    I love Greek yogurt with granola and raspberries. Yum!

    Don’t worry about the pet pictures. I bet most of your readers have pets and really enjoy the photos. Plus, your cat really does sleep super cutely.

    How funny! I always say I want to eat my dog because she’s so cute! Your cat is adorable. Roxy looks like a completely different dog – cute both ways! And your race number from the 5K is my birthday – yay! Glad you had a great 4th and can’t wait to see your cake.
