I'm Snack Girl and my website is devoted to becoming healthier. I create recipes, review food products, and support those on a healthy journey.
LUNA BAR is marketed exclusively to women as a healthy choice. Can a flavor like chocolate cupcake be healthy?
The real question with a flavor like "chocolate cupcake" is whether LUNA BAR is a candy bar or a healthy snack option.
Are you gaining weight on Weight Watchers? The Weight Watchers (WW) plan has been proven to help people lose weight but some of us have a tough time.
All of us want that magic bullet to drop the pounds right off us. Especially after you have spent the money, time, and effort eating on plan (within your points). It takes discipline to eat the right things!!
What exactly are wasabi peas and are they good for you?
Wasabi is a Japanese horseradish that most of us have encountered if we have tried sushi. It is that green paste that can set your mouth on fire if you make the mistake of eating too much of it.
This roasted veggie chili on a sheet pan is so easy! You only need to clean one pan after making it.
Why would you make chili on sheet pan? I know it sounds crazy but it allows you to roast cauliflower and a poblano chili. Have you ever had roasted veggies in chili?
Do you know how to brine chicken breast? It is like magic!
I know I could use some magic right now.
The alchemy here is using a technique called “brining” to transform bland, rubbery chicken breast into something wonderful. It doesn’t take very long and it ensures your chicken will be moist.
This air fryer beef jerky recipe is for all of those looking for a new project. If you are like me, you are looking for some new projects.
Why air fryer beef jerky? Beef jerky is one of those foods that I would buy at the convenience store for a snack because many of the high sodium content and the questionable ingredients (mechanically separated chicken?).
I am seriously stressed out and I know I've got some company. That is not me in the photo, but I feel this woman's pain.
My kids are home from school, I am trying to work, and I can’t stop the fear that grips my heart periodically for the people who are getting sick.
These healthy comfort food recipes are for right now. We all need some comfort as the stress of staying home hits our communities.
I say “stress” because I am still hoping most of us are more freaked out than sick. My children, 13 & 15, are home from school and I feel like my head isn’t attached to my body.
Slow cooker tofu transforms bland bean curd into a delicious meal. My daughter thought this tofu tasted like meat!
If you don’t use tofu or know what it is – don’t worry. I didn’t figure it out for a long time. Tofu is bean curd and it is created by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the curds into soft white blocks. On its own, it tastes like nothing much so you need to put it in dishes or marinate it.
Do you know how to stock a healthy pantry? I’m sure we all have some healthy food in our home but right now it seems important to review what we should have on hand.
The photo above is your typical pantry - not exactly a healthy one but a common one.
