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.
A vegetable skeleton? Why not? Nothing is more scary to kids than vegetables.
I am always on the lookout for something that I can make for a Halloween party that doesn’t involve candy. Over the years, I have promoted Mandarin Pumpkins, Banana Ghosts, and Pretzel Brooms (see below).
These apple oatmeal bars are for the crunchy leaves and crisp weather of fall. Don’t you start craving oatmeal when you have to rake your lawn?
I do!! Here is my healthy baked oatmeal
This Beyond Meat Burger review is for those of us looking to changed it up. Some plant-based burger patties have been showing up at Burger King (and selling out).
What are they?
They are not your typical vegetarian substitute for meat like my Mushroom Lentil Burgers or my Portobello Burger.
The best thing to order at Subway is the intersection of what you like in a sandwich and the healthiest choice.
I know I have been getting tired of cooking. Actually, it is in’t the cooking so much as the pots, pans, and general mess that I then have to clean up after I cook. My family does a good job helping out but I am still tired of it all. My husband cooks half the time and I am still fed up!
Healthy fall recipes feature squash, pumpkin, turkey, apples, and more squash. This time of year is filled with tasty food that is inexpensive and accessible.
I live in “FALL CENTRAL” AKA New England which is the place to celebrate fall. After many years in an office without a window, I am now looking out at the brilliant colors of fall foliage as I write this. It is spectacular.

Slow cooker chicken and vegetable stew is perfect for those days where you home to smell the aroma of delicious food. Which is pretty much every day!
This is one of those recipes that your cat could make because it is so easy. It is close (but not exactly) to one of those unfortunately named “dump” recipes.
This healthy pumpkin soup recipe is for those of you still getting into the fall spirit. Have you seen the pumpkins everywhere?
Every house on my block has one sitting on the stoop. These pumpkins, - carving, decorative pumpkins - are sitting outside in front of garden centers and grocery stores. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s.
This cottage cheese waffle recipe is made with a blender and I love how easy it is.
Whirrr, pour, cook, DONE!!
I happen to love to use my waffle iron for all sorts of things other than waffles. If you haven’t tried my waffle iron banana bread or my waffle iron grilled apple you are missing out.
These roasted pumpkin seeds are brought to you by fall. We need to enjoy the simple things like pumpkins.
I go a little nuts when I see the pumpkins show up at farm stands, Trader Joe’s, and my local supermarket. I just want to hug them!! (and buy them before I hug them)

This roasted cauliflower and broccoli soup will help you welcome the cooler temperatures. Who doesn’t love a good soup?!
Cauliflower and broccoli have a deep flavor after roasting that they simple miss when you steam them. The high heat of the oven takes away the bitter taste that some people hate and makes these vegetables sweeter.
