Over the last month I have had a bunch of emails asking what I eat for breakfast and snacks when I’m trying to be healthy. First, I love getting emails from you all! 🙂 Second, I’m always happy to answer your questions, so keep em’ coming!
For breakfast I eat greek yogurt and oatmeal, pretty much every morning during the week. (On weekends, I like to splurge and make pancakes or waffles for my fam.) The greek yogurt I love is Yoplait’s Greek Yogurt Whips. They’re only 100 calories and totally delish. I really like the blueberry and strawberry flavors. I eat my yogurt with a bowl of plain old oatmeal. I’ve been eating this breakfast for almost 11 years and it never gets old to me.
As for snacks, these Apple Cookie Snacks are one of my favorites. Slices of red delicious apples with a schmear ( I love that word “schmear” ha!) of peanut butter, topped with a few crushed walnuts, shredded coconut and chocolate chips. They’re SO good! My kids totally love these too. When they come home from school we each eat a couple slices, and then we’re usually satisfied until dinner. 🙂
