Healthy Snacks: Recipes and Tips for Easy Homemade Mini-Meals


Grab-and-go recipes that pack a healthy punch

W hen it comes to calories and nutrition, every bite you take counts—and that includes the ones you take between meals and on the run. The problem is that many grab-and-go options are pretty unhealthy and unsatisfying: A sugary or starchy snack can send your blood sugar soaring and leave you ravenous an hour later, craving another sugar bomb. On the flip side, healthy real-food snacks will fuel you and your family through your work or school day, energize you for a workout, and leave you sated enough that you're more likely to make nutritious choices at dinnertime. The recipes we've gathered here are easy to pop in a reusable plastic container or thermos and stick in your briefcase or kid's lunchbox, making it that much easier to pass by the vending machine or candy jar.

tips:

    Plan Ahead

Chocolate bars and potato chips are habit-forming, especially when you keep stocking up on them at home. Try making healthy snacks once a week and storing them in eye-catching places, like the top shelf of your refrigerator or to the left of your keyboard.

    Think About Leftovers

Pasta with cheese, eggs, tofu—food that usually makes an appearance at breakfast or dinner—can be perfect for afternoon pick-me-ups, in bite-size portions and tidy containers.

    What's in Store

Don't have a second to cook? Here are a few of our favorite packaged snacks to keep on hand: fresh fruit with nut butter; whole wheat crackers and string cheese or reduced-fat goat cheese with cherry tomatoes, carrots, or peppers; yogurt sprinkled with muesli, granola, ground flaxseed, or wheat germ and topped with frozen berries or cherries; nuts and seeds; edamame; hummus; beef jerky (it's low in fat and high in protein); and dried fruit (watch the sugar).

    Balance the Equation

Just like with full meals, you should try to get some protein, good carbs, and fruits or veggies at snack time. And it never hurts to throw in a square of dark chocolate for good measure!

    Pass It on

There are so many reasons for kids to ask for sports drinks and Oreos. But if you are munching on sliced apples with peanut butter instead of high-fat or high-sugar snacks, they will, too. Eventually they may even get used to the dried fruit and nuts you slip into their backpacks in the morning.

Cran Raspberry Crumb Bars Recipe & $100 Giveaway!


November means the arrival of cooler weather, and the beginning of the holiday season. Cranberries play a starring role in holiday fare, in part because their season is so fleeting. But raspberries, which grow practically year round here in California make for attractive co-stars (check out their availability on the Driscoll's calendar). With this in mind, I set out to make a jam bar that would highlight both fresh berries.

Tangy and buttery my Cran Raspberry Crumb Bars are the result of a happy accident because I let the food processor run a little too long. Instead of chopping the nuts, I pulsed the almonds along with the sugar until they were completely pulverized. Oops! But all is well that ends well. Perhaps jam bars are popular because they are hard to mess up?

Cran Raspberry Crumb Bars would be perfect for a holiday cookie party or to give as a gift. The bottom of the bars is basically almond shortbread and the filling is a very lightly sweetened combination of the fresh cranberries and raspberries. The organic raspberries I used were grown in the US and provided courtesy of Driscoll's. They balanced out the strong sour flavor of the fresh cranberries

Driscoll's offers lots of recipes for using berries and a system for identifying where berries were grown. Look for the code on the bottom of the clam shell package and enter the number at mydriscolls.com. Now through December 31st Driscoll's is running a Made with Love holiday sweepstakes where you can win a bright red Kitchenaid stand mixer and berries for a year  or berries for a year.

放牧夢在飛翔



一句心靈的呢喃妝點在季節的風鈴上婉轉潛入夢的衣裳,一個夢想的囈語記掛在時光的裙裾上悠然飄進心的懷想,心是清新的,她藏在春花沐雨的清露裏,她藏在夏雨迎風的霜雨中;夢是明媚的,她藏在秋葉泛紅的旖旎裏,她藏在冬雪飄灑的浪漫中。心還在懷想,夢已經踏上了輾轉的路途,心還在花蕊的包裹中含苞待放,夢已經搭上浪花的翅膀乘風破浪了。

心是一位採摘歲月精華的姑娘,她將採摘到的生活的感悟揉進夢的懷想裏,讓夢在回味中領悟到生命的真諦和歲月的風霜。心攜著夢的手,踏過春天的明媚走進夏天的清涼,踏過夏天的清涼走進秋天的豐碩,踏過秋天的豐碩走進冬天的冷寂,再踏過冬天的冷寂回歸到春天的溫暖。

春風吹來百花開,柳絮飄蕩雁回歸,銜著春天第一縷春的資訊,天上滾動的白雲翻轉流滾演繹出一幅春天的景象,這時的白雲,她是懷著一顆感恩的心來報答藍天的遼闊的,因為正是有了藍天的遼闊,白雲才有了了舒展身姿的舞臺,白雲的心是感激藍天的;伴著天上第一縷霞光的微露,東方升起的旭陽霞光萬丈昭示出一派天明的景象,這時的旭陽,她是懷著一顆勝利的心來征服黑夜的退縮的,因為正是有了黑夜的退縮,旭陽才有了光照四方的威儀,旭陽的心是藐視黑夜的;


聞著春天的第一縷花兒的馨香,空中飛舞的蝴蝶上下翻飛烘托出一派熱鬧的景象,這時的蝴蝶,她是懷著一顆喜悅的心來欣賞花兒的芬芳的,因為正是有了花兒的芬芳,蝴蝶才有了嬉戲遊樂的地方,蝴蝶的心是欣賞花兒的;隨著孩子第一聲稚嫩的呼喚,家中調皮的孩子咿呀學語昭顯出一幕感人的景象,這時的孩子,她是懷著一顆依賴的心來感恩母親的偉大的,因為正是有了母親的偉大,孩子才有了出生成長的機會,孩子的心是敬畏母親的;


聽著空中第一聲嗩呐聲響起,遠方花轎上的新娘由遠而近展示出一派喜氣的氣氛,這時的新娘,她是懷著一顆愛慕的心來許身新郎的思戀的,因為正是有了新郎的思戀,新娘才有了以身相許的機會,新娘的心是愛慕新郎的。

夢是斑斕的,夢也是五彩繽紛的,夢的衣裳還是變幻無常的,清寧的夜裏,天上的月光幽幽的,星星在眨著眼,萬物寂靜中,夢就開始了她的行程,她先走進漆黑的夜色的夢境中,她讓這漆黑的夜色沉沉睡去,不要醒來,然後她把夢托給了天上的星星,她告訴星星,就要到七夕了,那相愛的牛郎和織女已經整整一年沒有見面了,她請星星在七夕這一天一定要到銀河裏去,要星星發出她們最閃亮的光茫去照耀著讓喜鵲搭橋給牛郎和織女相會。

然後,她又走進熟睡的花兒的夢境中,她讓這熟睡的花兒快快醒來,快快醒來,她告訴花兒,春天就要來了,那滿目蒼夷的山川和河流已經荒蕪了一個冬天了,她請花兒在春天來臨時一定要把她的足跡踏遍河流山川,要花兒開出最美麗的花朵讓大地披上漂亮的衣裝。接著,她又走進睡夢中的新娘的夢境中,她讓睡夢中的新娘快睜開眼睛,她告訴新娘,婚期就要到了,那愛戀她的新郎已經等了她整整十八個年頭了,她請新娘在婚期到來時一定要把自己打扮得花枝招展,要粉面嬌羞、亭亭玉立地投入新郎的懷抱,讓自己和新郎成為天下最幸福的一對新人。拉著夢的衣襟,銜著夢的懷想,於是,在七夕這一天,牛郎和織女相會了,在春天到來時,大地換上了美麗的容顏,在婚期到來時,新娘和新郎手牽手進入了洞房。

心和夢是一對孿生姐妹,心的眼睛裏總是流著夢的眼淚,夢的話語裏也總是含著心的激情,心的明媚總是妝點著夢的衣裳,夢的綺麗也總是充盈著心的內涵,心在沉思中放牧,夢中憧憬中飛翔,點一抹心的馨香寫意夢的暢想,畫一幅夢的浪漫描摹心的流浪,倚在時光的門扉,讓心靈去放牧,放牧到天涯到海角,到天涯去採擷冰山上的雪蓮,到海角去打撈大海裏的珊瑚,讓心靈找尋到她的歸屬;站在季節的渡口,讓夢想去飛翔,飛翔到山高到水遠,到山高去採摘天上的星星,到水遠去捕獲螢火的流光,讓夢想實現了她的追求。心在前面跑,夢在後面追,心的翅膀搭上夢的思想,於是,心和夢就一起去放牧,一起去飛翔,一起去赴生命的盛宴,一起去看歲月的華光。

無歲月,無懷戀

蝴蝶飛離花朵後,才嗅得滿裳的芬芳,那不是因為無心聞香而是有些香氣只有在被歲月的露水浸潤後才能迸發。

曾經有些日夜看見的東西,總以為今日雖逝但明日還dermes激光脫毛 有,現在看來卻早已變成過往雲煙。當時跟我說笑的人們,現在早已歸屬於其他的天地。那是綻開的粉桃花,今日再望也失去了那日的別致。或許不是花不如那年的美,只是心不如那日的靜了。

有些人,是逃逸在語言描述範圍之外的人。他們不算是dermes 脫毛價錢朋友更難說是伴侶,我們能天天一同笑樂,互相嘲諷,甚至展開短時間的冷戰。但是對於他們,即使在知道或許是人生最後的離別的時候,也不能夠說些什麼,即使彼此都很在意,但是卻因為這層特殊的身份,不能像朋友那麼所謂草率地告別,更不可能像是伴侶那麼深情款款。

有些人,惟有歸屬於他人自己才懂得去珍惜。總以為dermes激光脫毛身邊的人就像一條長年累月永不停歇的滔滔江水一般永駐,但或許當有一日他為你送上請柬你才會發現自己不想哭,因為什麼都沒有失去;自己卻心靈空落落的,因為那個曾經被你作為心靈的支柱甚至是日夜接受你的痛苦的人已經變為了他人的伴侶。沒有失去就沒有懷念,沒有相遇就沒有思戀。

或許我們現在對於那些人只能懷揣著無限的懷僱傭中心念,以為他們不再活動於我們的身邊。我們無權阻留,卻真心想阻留,這就是我們那顆糾結而又簡單的心,不想把一切都靠到感情上去,最終變為時間感情的奴隸,或許有些東西,只有回味的時候才會更為美麗。
