Snack Time

It gets to be that time of day when I want to bust out of the doors and head down the street to crumbs for a massive cupcake, that could run me almost $5. $5 for a cupcake? Absurd, I know, delicious YES. We are obsessed with them, but a daily habit will put a hole in my wallet and a spare tire around my current spare tire of a waist.

So I was parusing my favorite diet site, Never Say Diet, and my favorite columnist on the site Linda Vongkhamchanh had just published a way for me to snack great healthy foods, for super cheap prices. Check out Snacking is a great way to boost your metabolism just as long as you make the right choices. Linda gives us 8 options that are light on the pocketbook, but pack a nutritional punch. Have a sweet tooth? She has trail mix and popsicles. Need something salty before you comandeer the vending machiene for all the potatoe chips? There is hummus and edamame to fill that void. If you wanted to make all her options it would cost you under $30 for all the ingredients. Each recipie makes a number of servings, so your pennies will be streched, not your thighs.
