    When it comes to healthy snacks there aren't many options to munch on. Especially if your looking for something raw...fruit excluded. So what's your favorite healthy snack and where can we find it?

      Favorite salty snack is pistachios in the shell-for some reason they are more satisfying if i have to work to get them out of the shells, lol.

      Favorite sweet snack--well I'm in Georgia, so I have to say a fresh ripe peach that will drip off your chin.

      I make a mix starting with the BJ's salted nut mix.  That is stupidly and dangerously salty, so I take one part of that, add two parts unsalted peanuts, one part unsalted whole almonds, I part unsalted walnuts and one part unsalted cashew halves.   We also buy salted and unsalted pistachios and mix those together after shelling,

    A bit of Greek yogurt, a few walnuts, and a teaspoon of ground flax seed - sounds delightful eh?  Actually it kills off 3 things women should eat every day out of 7 so I'm happy! That or a small crisp apple with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter.  One of these 2 snacks is great for maintaining good blood sugar levels and warding off 'the munchies' between meals.

    Dried prunes! I eat them like sweets.  Poor unicorns! But I suppose people have get their sparkle from somewhere.  You don't need sparkle if your regular you know, hence the prunes.
