Healthy Snacks With all the Right Moves


Before you go reaching for cookies for a snack, try one of these cooking dance moves to create a quick and healthy tasty treat!

The Seasoned Tomato Slice Slide
Do your best James Brown impersonation and do a stylish slide on over to your cutting board…wearing a cape is optional. Slice a few ripe tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar then spin and strut on out of the kitchen with your delicious snack!

The Lemon-Sugar Banana Boogie
Boogie on over to a bowl and mix together 1 tbsp of granulated sugar and ½ tsp of grated lemon zest. Now do the stir-dance and mix it like no one else can! Spread this mixture over a sheet of wax paper. Roll a peeled banana in the mixture until it is evenly coated. Cut some tile with your wicked dance moves then cut the banana into slices and enjoy!

Rock’n’Roll Pear and Cheese Wraps
Strike your best rock’n’roll power stance pose. Spread some light strawberry cream cheese over the surface of a whole wheat flour tortilla like your strumming a guitar. Add thin pear slices on top and then roll it up. Hey air guitar hero...your healthy treat is ready to eat!
