If you follow me on Facebook, you know I believe in snacking. Most of us grew up hearing that we should have 3 square meals per day. As I’ve gotten older, I find that 3 to 4 meals plus two snacks works best. Snacks are bad when unhealthy choices are made, or when snacking is just out of boredom. Snacks are great when they work in between meals to keep you fueled, and can also provide nutritional calories from fiber, protein, and healthy (but low) dose of fat.
Core apple (I used a Granny Smith) and slice in half. Smear on 1 tsp natural nut butter. Add 7 to 8 pecan halves. Dust with 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon and a dash of sea salt.
