Little did I know when I learning to play “Raisins and Almonds” on the piano as a child, that it would become one of my favorite snacks. Mostly I was puzzled by the title and the lyrics and wondered why a child was comforted by their mother singing about raisins and almonds.
Now I understand.
Trying to eat a mainly whole foods, plant-based diet that is low on carbs and sugars rules out a lot of mainstream snack options.
Raisins + almonds to the rescue.
If I was into superheros they would be my Batman + Robin… a dynamic duo teaming up to battle hunger pangs and snack attacks. (Living in a house with three men-in-training and their father is rubbing off on me. – grin -)
And the recipe? So simple. Grab one handful of raisins and balance it with a handful of almonds.
Seriously, though, when you are changing your diet, finding your healthy “go to” item is a key to staying on track. Especially when traveling and being around others who generally eat the foods you are trying to avoid.
The keys to a successful go to snack are:
- quick and easy to prepare
- enjoyable to eat
- positively supports your diet (e.g. raisins are rich in iron, almonds in calcium and protein)
So, What is your go to snack?
Life is busy.
