If you want to stick to healthy eating, you will have to think ahead and be prepared for a snack attack because they can sneak up on you at any moment!

Make your own with raw nuts, seeds and dried fruit. I really like golden berries, almonds, goji berries and Brazil nuts. 2) Organic Apples and Raw Almond Butter with Cinnamon. So simple, just cut up an apple, sprinkle with cinnamon and dip away! 3) Veggies and Hummus A classic snack, that everyone loves. Look for organic and gluten-free crackers like Mary’s Crackers or better yet, eat hummus with cut up veggies! If you are buying pre-made hummus, look for brands without canola oil. If you want to try making your own, here is my fun recipe: Beet and Lemon Hummus Hot pink and delicious! I love roasted beets and I love hummus, so why not put the two together!? This super fun recipe switches things up and is a great conversation starter! Want regular hummus? Just omit the beet! 2 c chickpeas, soaked and cooked 1 small beet, roasted and peeled ½- ¾ c water (preferably some of the chickpea cooking water) Zest of 1 whole lemon Juice of half a lemon 2 T tahini 2 T olive oil 1-1.5 t sea salt Preparation: Preheat oven to 400. Roast whole beets (just cut of top and bottom) for about an hour and a half. Check doneness with a knife, if should be soft like butter (if you know what I mean). If not finished yet, turn oven off but put beets back in so they can coast and continue cooking gently. When they are finished, let them cool and then slide skin off using your hands. They should come off pretty easy. You can use gloves if you don’t want to stain your nails, but I kind of like it! I do this every week, so that I always have roast beets on hand for salads and smoothies. Using a high-powered blender like a Vitamix, combine all ingredients adding the water slowly and as needed to make it blend thoroughly. Remember it will thicken a bit in the fridge. Blend until smooth and garnish with additional lemon zest. Stay tuned for part 2!
