Healthy Snack Ideas

IMG_1746How many times a day do we, as moms, here the phrase, “I’m hungry.” Some days I feel like I spend all of my time in the kitchen. I don’t dare plan a day trip without thinking of snacks for the car. This is especially true during the kids’ growth spurts!

Snacks are one of the most challenging aspects of a whole food diet for me. It is easy to fix health food at home when there is plenty of time. It can be harder on rushed days or when there is no kitchen handy.

Simple Meals for Anytime

Are you looking for quick ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here are two simple meals that will work any time of day.

The kids thought they were getting a treat last night when I made plantain nachos for dinner but these are not junk food. Pan-fried plantains are topped with a mix of grass-fed ground beef, peppers and carrot seasoned with salt, pepper and oregano. We garnished the nachos with fresh cilantro (great for detoxing the body of heavy metals and other toxins), tomatoes, green onions and avocado. Fresh green beans rounded out the meal.

My breakfast this morning of sweet potato stuffed with grass-fed beef and plenty of colorful vegetables (left over from last night). Grass-fed butter and fermented horseradish add extra nutrition and will keep me full through a hectic day.
