25 Healthy Snack Ideas

I just taught a class to a group of Young Women and ladies. We talked about healthy options for snacks. One important thing is to have healthy options ready to eat. Then you will be more likely to eat it. Having it look appealing is another plus. This is a great time of year to eat lots of different kinds of fruits and vegetables. You can eat many fruits and vegetables with nothing added to them and they taste great!
