Healthy Eats Week Day 4: Snacks!

Happy Saturday! I'm excited for the weekend. First off, I have to apologise. This post was meant to be for Friday morning, but that didn't happen. I was at CC team bonding day when suddenly my insulin pump stopped working. It did the same thing that happened in the bahamas! I was so angry. I spent my morning on the phone so they could ship me a new one and then figuring out giving shots for the day. Fun...

I wasn't about to let that ruin my day though. I had something really exciting planned.

Extreme Trampolining!! I went with some of my middle school friends. It was so much fun!!

flips... definitely not me! (; my friend used to be a gymnast and is totally awesome.

Yesterday night my mom & sister & I finally found a couch! (My dad took our old one). Walking around furniture stores is so exhausting. It took forever. I never want to smell furniture again. Ever.

Time for Healthy Eats Week!  Here's the fun stuff, guys. Get ready.It's SNACK DAY!

Apple chips: Got the idea from a girl on the CC team. However, I burnt mine. Oops. The few un-burnt ones were delicious. The rest I couldn't get off of the pan. Better luck next time (:

Peanut Butter Lover's oatmeal cookies.  Yum! These were gone in like three days. I think I'll have to add in more PB next time, but they were really soft and delicious. Thanks Katherine (:

These Emerald snack packs used to be one of my favorite snacks. Now, they aren't unhealthy, but they certainly have more ingredients than they need. I decided to recreate the mix on my own. I got mini marshmallows and slivered almonds and unsalted peanuts and chocolate chips but the COCONUT! It was missing the coconut! I was so excited when I finally found these at TJ's. Can't wait to make my s'mores trail mix later today! (:

$2?? Yes please! (:

The finished product. Delicious. The perfect dessert/snack.
These aren't a perfect snack, but they are much healthier than chips. A treat for me (:
My "need a quick snack that has carbs for on-the-go". My favorite flavor ever.
Horsey Sauce at Arby's, anybody?? This is my "clean" version of it!
I found it at TJ's and I got so excited. I love eating it with carrots and peppers. It would be totally delicious on sandwiches and wraps, too.

I snack on nuts all the time. My ultimate favorite is TJ's roasted cashews. Yummayyy.

Now, I have a confession to make. I am addicted to chewing gum. The Extra or the 5 kind? During the school year I may or may not have 6+ sticks in one day. That's just the school day.

After reading some books on clean, healthy eating, I realized all the chemicals and additives in gum.. It really grossed me out.

These mints don't have most of the dangerous stuff that gum has. They taste great too! 

That's it for my snacking. Have a wonderful weekend! (: 

What are your favorite snacks? What do you eat on-the-go? Do you chew gum? 


  1. All of the snacks look great! And that really stinks about the insulin pump - I hope everything is all worked out now!

  2. I have always wanted to go extreme trampolining! And Im sorry about the insulin pump :/ On a brighter note, all of your snacks look amazing!

  3. I think (at least hope!) that the visit to trampoline world made up for the insulin pump! There was a time when I could do flips on the trampoline (I used to do gymnastics), but I think all I would end up with now would be a broken neck lol.
    All your snacks look so good! Katherine's cookies look amazing! She is definitelty the peanut butter queen. :) Your S'mores trail mix is really calling my name too. I've had a major S'mores craving lately. I was thinking about S'mores cookie bars, but if I don't get around to that, your trail mix looks like a delicious alternative! :) That is definitely my favorite Luna bar flavor too. Tastes like eating a giant Christmas cookie! I had one the other night - so good!

  4. I went extreme trampolining this past summer and it was so life changing. That sounds cheesy, but ti was SO much fun! And aww you made my cookies! Add loads of peanut butter. I always even top mine with pb. I know I'm crazy obsessed! And xc bonding? That sounds like so much fun! I need to do that with my team!
