Really Big Healthy Snacks

tomato cantaloupe salsaI recently increased my exercise plan, just slightly an extra 15 minute jog, three times a week. Might not sound like a lot, but I certainly have felt a change in my, ahem, bottom line and particularly in my appetite.

So what do you do when you feel a little hungrier than normal but don’t want to load up on an extra meal’s worth of calories? Going hungry isn’t an option, so my mission over the next few weeks is to make a series of big, filling snacks with less calories, snacks made with the least fake stuff as possible, and real food.

Big Snack #1

I take a large Magic Pop, way better than a rice cake and top it with 1/2 cup cantaloupe tomato salsa. Munch it right away, (I couldn’t resist) or the magic pop will get soggy.
