Eating snacks is a beneficial method of keeping your energy up throughout the long day. However, many foods we think of when we consider the term "snack" aren't healthy options, and can sometimes make us feel tired or sluggish rather than revitalized after eating. Choosing a healthier option to snack throughout the day will fill you up, and keep your energy higher than defaulting to the cookie you crave. Here are some healthy snacks, from fruits to the best healthy probiotic yogurt, you should consider if you want to keep your energy high all day.
Growing up, I wasn't a fan of beans—except for pork and beans. I didn't like the taste of black eyed peas. I highly disliked lima beans and good luck with me eating a navy bean. Hell, I use to eat around the kidney beans in my father's chili!
I have a confession... I don't know how to cook... not even a little. I have a slow cooker, but I only ever used it to make chai tea. Which was amazing BTW! However, it's time for me to grow up and act like a normal adult! For some reason I think that making Stew and Chili is the way to prove to my self that I am an adult now. I will also be making Mac and Cheese and DIY iced coffee, because no one is perfect. So here it is, I present to you an easy intro to cooking with a slow cooker, and four easy-peasy recipes.
Did summer even happen? I’m not being existential here, but I’ve noticed that adulthood doesn’t have a lot of memorable benchmarkers when it comes to time. I’m not in school, and seasons aren’t defined by what I’m doing and when. I do the same thing in the winter as I do in the summer. Months and years blur together, and soon another decade is up. There’s end-of-the-DECADE music lists rolling out right now. 2010 was 10 years ago? Sounds fake, but OK.
Sticking to your healthy eating goals in both winter and summer can be a challenge! Life is full vacations, family gatherings, cookouts, and special occasions. However, we have made it a little easier by putting together some of our top tips to eating delicious yet healthy food.
