I am a Snacker.

One thing that I have always been is snacky. Especially when I am nannying, I seem to always be looking for something to eat. Since starting with this new family I am trying to be really good about it. I do need a mid afternoon snack, otherwise I may possibly starve before dinner is ready. But I also need to keep it healthy. So I wanted to start this thing on my blog where I do a snack of the week. I need good snacks that are filling and will hold me over from lunch until dinner, but they need to be healthy and delicious too.

Here is this week's snack. It is a bit childish, but it is one that I love, and it fills all the necessary categories. Ants On A Log. Celery filled with peanut butter, and raisins lined up on top. I've got my veggie in there to help me get to the daily total that I need. The peanut butter is a good source of protein, and it is very filling. The raisins are a sweet little touch on top, great for my sweet teeth!

I've got some good SOTW snacks planned for the next couple of weeks, but if you have any suggestions, I'm going to need them! Thanks, and happy snacking :)

Peanut butter is always high on my snack list, but I've never cared for that particular combination... I don't have any great snacks ideas though. I tend to grab a piece of fruit and a wedge of cheese.
