Easy 3-Ingredient Summer Time Snacks

June 21, 2012

Red and purple fruits and veggies

These snacks are as easy as 1-2-3. Every ingredient is easy to find at the market, and every combo will give you MORE fruits or veggies. In fact, notice there are no cups or tablespoons listed…Simply think MORE fruits and veggies and LESS of the other ingredients. (If you still need an amount as a guide, think 1 Tbsp or less of toppings and 1 slice of grains or meat.)

Romaine lettuce leaf, large
Deli turkey, lean
Tomato, chopped
*Roll up the turkey and tomatoes inside the Romaine leaf

Tomato slices
Mozzarella cheese
Mini whole grain waffle, toasted

Crushed Pineapple, packed in juice and drained
Blueberries, frozen
Dried apricots, chopped

Banana slices, frozen
Peanut butter
Whole grain tortilla, torn in half
*Roll up the bananas in the tortilla half after spreading on the peanut butter

Red apple, chopped
Cheddar cheese, low fat, shredded
Mini whole grain waffle, toasted

Crushed pineapple (option: add some grated carrots)
Cream cheese, fat free
Whole grain crackers

Think of other colorful fruits or veggies to add to each combo? Share them!
