WIAW: Snack Happy!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday, Loves!

Yep, it’s that time of week again! And in honor of it being the last week of our
“Sensible Snacking” theme, I thought I’d throw together a compilation of some of my favorite nibbles that get me through my days…and nights! 😉

Be sure to pop on over to Peas & Crayons and show some support for our hostess with the mostest…and of course drool over all the other link ups!; )

Now, onto the snack montage!

Sometimes, it’s a fruit…

Alone…or paired with some sort of dip, popcorn, or a matching manicure! 😉

Sometimes, it’s a veggie…

Usually eaten a bit untraditionally (whole peppers or raw okra) and again almost ALWAYS paired with some dippage…what can I say, I’m a born dunker!

Sometimes, it comes from a package…

FYI, Jenn was right, these snapea crisps are like TOTAL CRACK!

And occasionally, it’s homemade…

Kalamata Olive Hummus, Pizza Pizza Cashew Cheese Dip, kale chips, and my newest experiment, Lori & Michelle’s juice pulp crackers (so easy, so versatile, SO YUM!)

Sometimes, it’s to fuel me for a workout… 

And sometimes, it’s just a bit indulgent…

Sometimes, it’s an exotic new snack…

That you wish you’d never tried…

Ahhhhhhhhh!

And sometimes, it’s a trusted favorite…

Sometimes, it’s a quick on-the-go bar to zap my hunger…

Of course not all are created equal…don’t waste your money on Simple Truth bars!

But then sometimes, it’s nice to sit down and enjoy a cup of something delicious…

And AGAIN with the dipping…hmm, wonder what pulp crackers would taste like dipped in juice! 😉

Sometimes, it gets a little wacky (especially at work at 3am)…

Cucumber BBQ chip sandwich anyone? 😉

And heck sometimes, it’s just whatever’s laying around the house (though I have to warn you, when I’m hungry, that could be ANYTHING)…

Case(S) in point: Tortilla chips, beans, and chow chow (kinda like pickle relish but with cabbage), toast with Vegemite, egg white patty, and ketchup, Wasa crackers with peanut flour pumpkin dip, peanut flour pumpkin dip with SPRINKLES, and puffed wheat cakes schmeared with my favorite almond butter!

 But no matter what the snack, what I choose is ALWAYS what I feel is best for my body…and mind at the time. Sometimes all I want is a cool crisp cucumber dipped in mustard…other times I want to crunch into a bag of Popchips, sometimes, I want to combine the two! 😉

If it’s processed, I look for minimal ingredients and low sugar. And I always try to aim for a good balance of protein and fats to help with the staying power.

But sometimes, well sometimes, you just gotta forget everything, give into that craving and eat the damn ice cream!

Isn’t that right, Janetha?

What is the last delicious snack you had?

The moment to indulge is now…do you go for something creamy and buttery, crispy and crunchy, salty and savory, or covered in chocolate…or how about a mixture of everything…a little sensory overload never killed anybody! 😉
