Food substitutions and Good Snack ideas

I love Greek yogurt and look at what you can use it for......so much healthier! Yay!


You can still have treats! Why not create a healthier version of treats you love!! Be creative and use moderation always....but who said you can't treat yourself!! You won't even miss the real, but BAD BAD BAD version of it :)


PB2 is powdered.  It comes in chocolate or regular. Yes Please! Chocolate and PB the healthy way....my favorite combination!!  It's Peanut Butter without all the bad stuff.  Great to add to smoothies, mix with a little water to use as a spread.  Such a great option for healthier snacks.  Great for kids (who aren't allergic...my poor daughter, we love PB in this house! But she still likes almond butter and soy butter) Check out the site find recipes and other good for you peanut products as well.

I love Regular Peanut Butter, but look at this little chart below:
(hello look at all the calories you'll be saving with PB2 and you'll still get to have your treat)
Traditional Peanut Butter vs. PB2

*If you do Weight Watchers it's only 1 points plus per 2 tablespoons. 
You'll also find a recipe index on the site. Very cool!

I'm always looking for some good snack options, especially things to offer my kids so they don't get bored with my same Health snacks I make them eat :) We are trying to eat more healthy as a family and I'm trying to cook better and offer my hubby and kids only healthy but good snacks. Check out these good recipe substitution ideas and snacks. I love them!
