Fun, Healthy, Delicious Food – Can you really Are All?

Is there really such a thing as food that is fun, healthy, and delicious? So many people think grub that’s good for you automatically takes all the fun out of eating. After all, well balanced meals can’t possibly taste good, can it? Of course it can!

I have been busy gathering some ideas for fun, healthy, delicious foods to give out. If you have kids gulas de vita, these are recipes I think they’ll like too. And here’s another bonus – all are easy to make:

o Have you seen those “Flatout Mini” soft wraps? I love these! They are small-size wraps that are lacking in calories, convenient, and versatile. Try this easy menu – all you need are the wraps, cooking product, Mrs. Rush, and Parmesan cheese. Cut each wrap into 16 wedges and place on a biscuit published protected with cooking product. Sprinkle with a little Mrs. Rush and a bit of Parmesan. Cook at 350-degrees for approximately ten minutes or until lightly brown and crisp.

o Fruit kabobs – This is a fun alternative to a plain old bowl of fruit. Just pick a few of your favorites – maybe oatmeal, pineapple, bananas – and cut them into chunks. Slide the fruit onto a skewer. Next, roll the skewer in a plate of nonfat yogurt… then roll again in a plate of shredded coconut. Voila! A fun, healthy, delicious goody!

o Sandwich kabobs – Cut whole-grain bread, low-fat cheese, and your favorite deli meat into cubes. Slide them onto skewers along with some veggies like grape tomato vegetables, lettuce, pickles, and olives. Dip into fat-free or low-fat Italian dressing up.

o For a quick mini-pizza, top an English muffin (go for the whole grain ones) with spaghetti sauce and a little shredded low-fat mozzarella. Broil before the cheese melts.

o Pop a frozen waffle or pancake into the toaster and top it with warm applesauce and cinnamon. Too easy, huh?

o Stop some grapes, bananas, cherries, or maybe peaches and blend with yogurt for a fruit juice smoothie.

o Yogurt pops – fill paper cups of coffee with your favorite non-fat or low-fat yogurt and put a popsicle stick in each cup. Stop and enjoy!

o Frothy Coolwich (from Nabisco World) – put 2 tablespoons of sugar free Cool Beat in between graham cracker squares. Place available as one layer on a the baking published and stop for three hours or until firm. Yum!

o Blueberry Cracker Bites (from Kraft Foods) – spread 1 teaspoon light cream cheese on a reduced-fat Ritz cracker and top with 5 frozen blueberries. Too fun!

So, you see – healthy foods can be fun and delicious.

Now, I am a strong believer that the key to a successful, healthy lifestyle is to choose fun good-for-you foods and exercises when you can. It’s a tough enough fight out there whether you’re trying to lose or maintain weight. But enjoying the journey is half the battle.
