A Healthy Snacks…
I am always reading blogs about food because I love cooking and enjoying making food for my family. Over the past years I have always navigated close to the idea of natural ingredients less preservative. I have blog about this subject in past too. Finding the correct food with natural elements take skills in today’s world because we are basically raised in a preservatives and fast food.
I have begun to use honey as sweetener in my tea for last 4-5 years and find that it is very beneficial. I use raw honey when I make fruit tarts as a garnish. It took me a while to adjust to the taste because honey does have an after taste. What I found recently was when I ran out of my honey stock that I did not like sugar in my tea.
So when I was at the farm stand since I have started to go back to school the one of the items they sell at the farm shop was honey during these cold months. Not only that she told me that they harvested the new honey during Thanksgiving and will be on the self soon. When I explained to her that I couldn’t take my tea without the honey she told me one of her quick snacks she makes with honey.
This is my version of a healthy snack. My recent visit to IKEA I purchased a packet of Rye Crisp bread made out of 73%Wholegrain rye flour, 17% rye flour, water, yeast, salt, and ground caraway. I spread a 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (freshly ground) and drizzled some honey on it was delicious.
My little one didn’t like it very much but she was happy to take few bites when she saw honey on it. I have a night class I looking for ideas to have healthy dinner at school that works with my body and brain at the same time.
