Snacking should be fun, right?

I guess it should be fun.

But don't you think that snacking should also be smart?

I've always thought of snacking as a way to fill in the gaps between meals; and by that I mean to balance out my day. So yesterday afternoon I grabbed two slices of Light Rye Bread, some lettuce and tomato slices, a teaspoon of olive oil, and some salt and pepper; a great sandwich was created. This was at 3:00 PM. Got some healthy oil, got some veggies.

But then the other day I was reminded about dehydration. Why can't snacking be about hydrating myself? And I'm not talking water. Soup can be a great hydrator; as can a smoothie. So yesterday mid-morning I took a yogurt, some strawberries and a splash of OJ and tossed it in the Magic Bullet. Hydration, satisfaction and nutrition.

Last night I tossed a fudgesicle into a glass of diet chocolate soda. Hey, snacking should be fun, right!?

You inspired me to pull out the magic bullet. Tossed in plain yogurt, fresh blackberries and fresh pineapple. Made for an awesome smoothie!
