When you’re toting a small tot across the globe (or even just across state lines), one thing you’ve got to have on hand is snack food. Lots and lots of it. Because make no mistake about it: there will be a meltdown during your journey (at least one)—and there’s nothing like something yummy to nosh on to turn a cranky kid into a happy one.
Whether you grew up just a few miles from the sea and sand or enjoy the beach’s brilliance on holidays, there’s something about the ocean air that makes eating inevitable. My brother and I viewed snacks by the surf, in fact, as a required element in trips to the beach (sort of like sand in your swimsuit but much more fun!).
Whether you’re a bride-to-be, the proud parent-of-the-bride, a bridesmaid or a guest who wants to look your best, a wedding day is a time to look and feel fabulous. The pursuit of “shedding for the wedding” has become famed in recent years, as women starve in their determination to look gorgeous in their gowns. But we’d like to offer a reality check: You want to enjoy that wedding day, not feel faint throughout! You can lose weight safely and effectively in a healthy way by following these tips:
Popcorn is a perfect light, crunchy summertime snack. Plus, it only costs about 16 cents per serving—you can’t beat that when you’ve got a bunch of hungry kids hanging out at home. Rather than oil and the traditional stovetop method, I like to use an air popper, which I place outside to keep the heat (and the kids) out of the kitchen. After popping up a big batch, I sprinkle on one of my homemade seasoning blends to transform boring, plain-old puffs into a super satisfying sweet or savory snack.
Maybe he’s your grandfather, your brother or a newly retired teacher who transformed your life when you were growing up. Whatever role that lucky man plays in your life, Father’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to show just how much you care. And what better way than a bountiful basket of gifts that enhance his health?
Craving something crunchy? Put down that bag of chips and make yourself one of these crispy, nutritious “cakes” instead. Homemade cashew cheese is spread over a brown rice cake, then topped with rich sundried tomatoes, tasty capers and a sprinkling of hemp seeds. A quick toast in the oven and you’ve got a satisfying snack that’s actually good for you!
