What does everyone else do for healthy snacks?

1 to 1 1/2 cup unsalted, shelled peanuts
1-1/2 tablespoons of flax-seed oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
(optional- sweeten with add 2 tbsp of honey)
Just grind and blend till its the way you want it. Store it in the fridge or else it will go bad in a few days.
It lasts about 2 weeks in the refrigerator. It's easier with a food processor but i have done it with a regular blender.
But to produce palm oil in large enough quantities to meet growing demand, farmers across Southeast Asia have been clearing huge swaths of biodiversity-rich tropical rainforest to make room for massive palm plantations. Today palm oil production is the largest cause of deforestation in Indonesia and other equatorial countries with dwindling expanses of tropical rainforest.
Indonesia’s endangered orangutan population, which depends upon the rainforest, has dwindled by as much as 50 percent in recent years.
The clearing of these forests is a big factor in global warming, given how much carbon dioxide (CO2) trees store when left alone. Once forests are cut, tons of CO2 heads skyward where it does the most harm. Also, when not replaced by palm oil plantations, rainforests help maintain water resources by absorbing rainfall and then releasing it into streams and rivers, thus minimizing flooding and soil depletion."

Garbanzo bean dip - it's like hummus without the tahini, just a can of beans, clove of garlic, squeeze of lemon juice and drizzle of olive oil in the blender. Served with raw carrots, broccoli and cucumber and whole grain crackers.
Yogurt - any kind, love it

Natural (farmers market bought) almond butter
Granny smith apples
Rice cakes with almond butter
Unfortunately, we have given up peanut butter. My daughters ND said that peanuts contain aflatoxins that are toxic to the liver so we switched over to almond butter. I buy both creamy and crunchy. Tastes great on toast!

I used to drive my father nuts because I'd eat most of the fruit from a grocery run within a couple of days. I can't buy as much now because I try to eat organic fruit when I can -- costs more -- but seriously, forget the gourmet chilled strawberry puree or cherry soup -- give me the plain fruit itself.

Aside from getting a lot of vitamin C from fruits, we can also reduce the risk of developing various cancer types. And it is also amazing how eating fruits can potentially slow down age process. Good news to the not-so-young ones!

One of my favorite snacks when I'm a little bit more hungry is hummus. I want to make some of my own to play around with different flavorings like garlic and tomato paste.
