Fresh berries are loaded with healthy fiber, and they’re also sweet enough to offer legitimate dessert credentials.
Colorful Sandwich Wrap
Substitute high-carb white bread with a spinach wrap or a colored tortilla wrap.
Add a small amount of yogurt and sliced fruit to a whole grain waffle.
Grill some boneless, skinless chicken breast on wooden skewers. For added flavor, try an oil and herb marinade, or add some veggies for added nutritional value.
Fruit & Coconut Milk Smoothie
Put some ice cubes, 12 ounces of coconut milk, a teaspoon of coconut oil and their favorite frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.) in a blender, then blend until smooth.
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Bake sweet potato wedges with some salt, pepper and other spices; a dash of cumin or paprika
All you need is tortilla shells, some fresh salsa and shredded cheese. Place the salsa and cheese on a small tortilla, then microwave for a minute.
Veggies with Peanut Dipping Sauce
Mix a few tablespoons of smooth peanut butter, a dash of soy sauce, a tablespoon of honey and a splash of sesame oil to create a yummy, nutritious dipping sauce.
Make a trail mix. Add natural coconut flakes, nutrient-packed nuts, raisins and other healthy foods for a take-anywhere treat.
Water a Hundred Ways. Water alone can be boring, but not after a splash of lime, lemon, watermelon chunks, mint and other natural ingredients.
Get Cheesy. A simple cheese roll-up is also a calcium-rich treat. Just take a small flour tortilla, add a small amount of cheese, microwave for 20 seconds and “roll it up”!
