**DAIRY: I am a firm believer that your body NEEDS the 5 FOOD GROUPS everyday! This is one food group that I could not live without. I LOVE milk (soy or cow's), eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, and string cheese! A goal of mine is to try and buy organic dairy as much as possible.
**VEGGIES & FRUIT: The best snacks of all! I love to peel carrots (I buy them whole because they are much cheaper and more tasty in my opinion.) and eat them whole! I eat a banana every morning, along with my oatmeal. I love an apple in the afternoon for a snack. Another snack I like is to heat up 1/2 cup of frozen peas in the microwave and add some pepper and 1/2 cup of cottage cheese.
**Favorite brand: KASHI!!! I love everything KASHI! If you haven't tried it, you should. I love Kashi cereals, granola bars, crackers, and cookies. If you ever want a CARB fix and you are in a rush, choose something Kashi. It's tasty, made from HEALTHY ingredients, and filling!
**WATER: I know we hear this over and over again, but it's true OUR BODIES NEED LOTS OF WATER! So drink up! It's free and refreshing!
What are you & your family eating/snacking on that's nutritious?
