Healthy Morning, Mid-day or Late Night Snack!

Time for something healthy after this long Thanksgiving weekend! I ate way too much and not only that, I had two dinners in a row.  I can’t believe I’m still standing right now!

I want to share my go to healthy snack that I always have.  It’s packed full of nutrients, omega’s and fibre.  This is perfect for when you are hungry between meals.  It’s good for you and tastes amazing!

Here’s the recipe:

- 2 heaping tbsp’s of organic greek yogurt (vanilla).  Use any flavour you prefer or go plain!
- 1 tbsp of organic ground flax seeds.
- 1 tbsp of “Skinny B” which has organic chia, hemp and buckwheat seeds.

Stir and enjoy!

I am in LOVE with this recipe.  I think the vanilla flavoured organic greek yogurt really makes this taste so good. OK…. I’m going to eat it now! 

Eat healthy, love your body and smile!
