Banana Nut Wraps

Here's an easy breakfast sandwich to have at home or on the go!

  Thinly slice a banana and spread almond butter or your favorite nut spread on the slices; place in a double layer of romaine or iceberg lettuce and roll like a burrito. Make two or three of these wraps, add a drink and you have a healthy snack or breakfast to go!

Apple Ginger Snack

  Today's recipe is a spicy and naturally sweet pick-me-up for a healthy snack!  

  • 1 cored apple, sliced into 1/4" pieces (leave skin on)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ground ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  Mix ingredients together in a sauce pan; cook on medium heat until apples are soft. (Add enough water or apple juice to pan to keep from sticking and burning.) Transfer onto a plate and enjoy with raspberry or herbal tea!

Fruit Dressing

  After the long holidays of eating rich foods and deserts I don't normally indulge in;  I like to go back to eating healthy, natural foods. One of my favorites is a simple salad with fruit dressing. Mix lettuce with chopped veggies and add pineapple chunks, orange slices or any "soft" fruit. For the dressing, blend or puree 2 tablespoons of orange or cherry juice with 1 ripe banana till smooth. Pour over salad mix. This method works well with almost any fruit! Use blueberries or cranberries for a more tart dressing; raspberries or pear slices for sweeter version. With no added sugar or oil needed, this dressing light on fat and empty calories. A great little "pick me up" meal in winter!
