A few of my Favorite Snacks (and Healthy Soups!)

 

Hi Foodies,

I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite snacks EVER! I love to dress up my toasts for a snack or meal which can easily be achieved by adding to a side salad or soup of choice. I also like to pair a savory and sweet toast – it’s like lunch and dessert made simple, and can be quite nutritious! I like to liven up the toasts because:

  1. Healthy and nutritious
  2. Easy and simple to put together
  3. Healthy and tasty

My favorite bread to use for my toast is the a honey oat and nut breads variation, but any high fiber bread will do!  I like to keep the toppings colorful and of course maintaining taste and texture, whether sweet or savory! Here is is what’s on the toasts!

Sweet Toasts

  • Mix of low fat cream cheese + low fat greek yogurt, Kiwi slices, Passion fruit
  • Hazelnut spread, Strawberry slices, chopped Hazelnuts, Mint leaves
  • Almond butter, Banana slices, Chia seeds, Honey

Savory Toasts

  • Low fat Cream cheese, prosciutto, roasted asparagus , Drizzle of balsamic reduction
  • Pesto, Mozzarella, Cherry tomatoes, Basil, Drizzle of balsamic reduction
  • Low fat cream cheese, Lox (smoked salmon), Avocado slices

I like to make these a meal by adding a soup, so here are some of my favorite soups! Click on the links below each soup picture to get the full recipe. Enjoy!!!
