If you're anything like us, you ate way too much over the holidays and have made some new-year-be-healthier-resolutions. We've officially made it a week without sugar, which is a major accomplishment in this house and I'm pretty dang proud of my hubby and me. In lieu of our be-healthier goals, I thought I'd share one of my very most favorite snacks...
Sounds simple, it is. Unless your like me that is...
My husband calls me a food snob, some call me picky, I call it: I know what's good and nothing else will due.
Here's the need-to-know about this seemingly simple snack:
1. CRUNCHY almond butter is a must. Okay, now I'm drooling. Maybe it's because I'm sugar deprived, but basically I have to refrain from eating an entire jar of this stuff in one sitting.
2. Again with the food snob thing, I always buy pink lady apples, they are after all the very most perfect apple ever. However, when it comes to this little combo, the best is a good 'ole cheap gala apple. Trust me, I've tried them all...I'm strange like that, so don't bother. Just go with the gala.
3. There are a couple of brands of almond butter I like and some I despise, my favorite is Kettle.
4. Some people dip bananas, but I think that's repulsive. I guess it's up to you on that one. I'm sticking with apples.
By-the-way, my children beg me for this...no joke. So much better than chips or crackers.

Happy Healthy Eating!
