Healthy Snacks

If you're like me (and countless others in this first week of 2011), you've made a resolution to eat healthier and maybe shed a few pounds. A key to that for me is lots of (healthy) snacks to keep my metabolism revved. But no carrot sticks for me. Here are some tasty snack ideas I ran across the other day.

A one-inch cube of hard cheese (smoked Gouda, anyone?) and 4 dried apricot halves.

Cucumber slices and a wedge or two of Laughing Cow cheese.

Apple slices with a spoonful of peanut butter (or even better...almond butter).

Melba toast with a light spread of cream cheese.

A couple of slices of deli turkey and a handful of grapes.

More next week....
