Daphne's Favorite Healthy Snacks

PB&J smoothie (named after her daughter's initials): Put 1 cup each frozen blueberries and strawberries, 1/2 banana, 1 tablespoon almond or peanut butter, 1 cup plain Greek yogurt and a little water in a blender. Add 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia seeds if desired. Blend.

Herb popcorn: Pop 3 ounces kernels. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons dried herbs, such as dill, parsley, thyme or oregano. Drizzle with 4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil. Mix.

Feta, tomato and chopped cucumber with a little olive oil and jalapeño on a Wasa cracker or a brown-rice cake "So simple and so delicious!"

Fruit and nuts: "I try to have raw almonds, one or two dates, and baby carrots on hand. And an apple goes a long way."
