snack girl to the rescue: book review

I am always looking for healthy, filling snacks to munch on during the day and when I came across this book I thought I would see what kinds of snacks she has to offer.

I was actually surprised with how detailed the beginning of the book is and how to have a healthy image and weight. It also went into everyday temptations (mindless eating while watching, etc) and exercise.

The recipes fill up about a good 100+ pages and they cover breakfasts, main, sides, snacks and desserts. For me I headed straight to the snacks chapter. I loved that each of the recipes put the calories, carbs, fat, sugar, protein, fiber, etc. It gave me an idea of what I should be looking for in a snack.

Some good snacks were apple and peanut butter, chocolate smoothie  and tuna avocado dip.
