March 18, 2015Little River County, Ark. –How many times per week do you eat at home? Some weeks we are on the road more often
than not. Most of us are looking for fast and delicious food options. You can meet
your health goals while also eating out. Here are some tips to consider before you
go out to eat.
You can still maintain your health and a healthy weight while eating on the go. Make
sure to keep non-perishable snacks that are easy to grab to make healthy snack choices.
Choose fruit cups, trail mix, or peanut butter and crackers for a healthy to go snack.
Make this trail mix to keep as a quick snack on the run. Portion it out in snack bags
or small containers for easy access.
Sweet & Salty Trail Mix Makes 10 servings. Each ½ cup serving has about 50 calories, 22 g carbohydrate, 1
g dietary fiber and 3 g protein.
1 ½ cups oat circles cereal 1 ½ cups corn squares cereal ½ cup whole almonds (chopped OR buy them already sliced) ½ cup raisins ½ cup small pretzels ½ cup chocolate chips Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Store in an airtight container or bag. *There are many healthy combinations that you can choose for this trail mix. Consider
substituting your favorite whole grain cereal. Substitute peanuts or cashews for the
almonds. Use dried cranberries or cherries instead of the raisins. Make your favorite
combination this week.
Join our new cooking club. The first meeting will be on Monday, April 13th at 5:30 PM. We will meet at Cossatot in Ashdown in the Millwood room. The goal of
the club will be to swap recipes and prep freezer meals to make meal planning a breeze!
