At the end of the day and a healthy snack

Well, at the end of this here day, I have sucessfully:

possibly broken my pinkie toe, made a fabulous dinner consisting of:

a vegtable, tofu, pasta fagoli soup

(unfortunately I forgot to put the noodles in-hahah-at least it is less carbs)

salad with quinoa, italian bread (store bought), and black bean brownies.

It has been a very good day-busy and healthy bite by bite.

What steps towards healthy living have you accomplished?

Here is one of my favorite snacks:

Ingredients for Apple Sandwiches:

2 small apples, cored and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick rounds
1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
3 tablespoons peanut or almond butter
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons granola


If you won't be eating these tasty treats right away, start by brushing the apples slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.

Spread one side of half of the apple slices with peanut or almond butter then sprinkle with chocolate chips and granola. Top with remaining apple slices, pressing down gently to make the sandwiches. Transfer to napkins or plates and serve.

So yummy!!!  I have even taken and made a "dip" to dip my apples into-then it is ready when I need a quick yummy healthy snack.  Enjoy!!
