A Healthy Snack & Your Comments
Today instead of writing about the M&M's I keep on my kitchen counter, I'm writing about healthy snacks, which is fitting since most of my snacks are actually healthy ones. Yesterday I spread some nut butter on a date half and topped it with some coconut. A sprinkle of cinnamon would be good, too. I had never made these before and I liked them.
In the past, I've enjoyed unfilled, whole dates when I run. Today I sandwiched two nut filled dates together, wrapped them in plastic wrap and took them on my run. They became a sticky mess in the plastic so I'll stick to plain dates when I run and save the nut filled ones for home. After my run, I chopped up the messy dates and put them in my banana/oat/peanut butter smoothie.
There were some funny comments on my last post, 7 Random Facts About Moi. I'm glad that I mentioned the candy because now I know that I need to hide the candy jar if any of you visit! I mentioned the time I jumped over a snake and a question was asked:
Do you jump over snakes because you hate them, are startled by them or because it is fun?
Snakes are good because they eat little animals that I do hate, but if I never see another one, that's fine with me. Startled isn't a strong enough word to describe how I feel when I see a snake. Terrified is better. It was fun to jump over the snake, but that's only because it's always nice to survive a surprise snake encounter!
I hope your day is filled with healthy food and not one snake!
