Snacks

I am sitting here right now watching the last few minutes of the OU/tx game! It is good so far!!!! *EDITED*** WE JUST OFFICIALLY WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OU=RED RIVER CHAMPS 2007!!!!!!!*

I am totally procrastinating everything productive that I need to do. I pretty much haven’t done anything productive at home all day! Joey played golf this morning & Jaxon and I did all our shopping for the week.

At the store this morning I tried to buy some healthier snacks. I haven’t adapted totally to the book, but I will try some of the recipes in the next few weeks. A few of you requested some healthy snack ideas…so you ask & you shall receive!

Deceptively Delicious Snack Ideas::

*Apple slices sprinkled with a little lemon juice
*Mozzarella or Cheddar cheese sticks
*Healthful muffins (recipes in the book)
*Cucumber or carrot sticks
*Chocolate chip cookies (the recipe from the book)
*Low fat Cheddar cheese crackers
*Rolled slices of reduced-fat cheese or turkey breast
*Raisins, cranberries, and other dried fruits mixed with sunflower seeds
*Gorilla Munch (a cereal, I had to Google it)
*Sliced English cucumber with salt
*Pistachios and walnuts
*Watermelon cubes
*Organic granola
*Peanut butter (with sliced apple or banana, or rice cakes)
*Frozen grapes
*soy crisps
*Vegetable chips
*Cheerios – Multi Grain, Honey Nut, or Plain
*Low-sugar yogurts and yogurt tubes (freeze them so they are less mess)(She likes Stonyfield Farms brand)
*Organic fruit leather (without dyes or added sugar)
*Whole-wheat fig bars
*Oat-bran pretzels
*Whole-wheat frozen waffles
*Low fat graham crackers
*Pita chips

Here are some things that Jaxon loves::

*Flat Earth baked veggie & fruit crisps ( I LOVE the Farmland Cheddar)(you can get these at wal-mart)
*Homemade trail mix (raisins, pretzel sticks, whole grain goldfish & sunflower seeds)
*Healthy popcorn (sometimes I put surprises in the bowl like mini chocolate chips, raisins, or mini marshmallows)
*Yogurt with sprinkles
*Apples, bananas, grapes, blueberries
*Raisins
*Dried Cranberries
*Jaxon loves water, but also likes juice. Instead of juice I’ve been buying the Minute Maid Fruit Falls. It is water flavored with natural fruit juice.
*Garden harvest vegetable chips (whole grain)
*Cheddar cheese
*Carrots with low fat ranch dip

We always have the above in stock. I hope this helps! If you all have any other ideas, let me know!

  1. I haven’t been to your actual blog in awhile-I love the new look!Connor’s all time favorite healthy snack is sugar snap peas. I buy the bagged kind that are sold right next to the baby carrots. They are so yummy! Logan doesn’t like them so much…we are working on Logan and healthy snacks. šŸ™‚

  3. Our doctor recommended V8 Splash and Juicy Juice Harvest Surprise for Wesley’s juice. He really likes it and I know that the secret goodness is in there plus the calories my picky eater needs. Seriously yesterday he had a chicken tender and pickles to eat. He also picked all the cherries out of his fruit cocktail and ate them too. I might have to pick that book up at the Library…thanks!

  5. Wow! We’re doing a lot better than I thought. A lot of those snacks are things we already do. Thank you so much for the suggestions. My kids drink flavored water. Lafe has not been able to drink juice since he was a baby, so that’s our substitute. I’ve never really had a hard time getting Wade to eat healthy foods, but Lafe is another story. Again, thanks for the suggestions. JB

  7. Today I watched Oprah and she had a show on “the book”. I wanted to go out and buy it, and I don’t even have kids! Oprah said she has a blog. I’m going to find it…it’s connected to O’s website.
