When you're on the go and you don't have time for meals, there are better options than junk food. Picking out the right dried fruit and nuts can make it easy for you to make wise snacking decisions for you and your family.
A Hearty Way to Snack
Dried fruit and nuts can be an easy and smart snack choice. Dried fruits contain plenty of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. Nuts are another great healthier snack choice because they are loaded with monounsaturated fats which can help keep you feeling full for longer. Fill up on the good stuff, and you might find yourself snacking less often between meals.
How Do You Incorporate Dried Fruit and Nuts in Your Meals?
Fruit and nuts might make great healthier snacks, but that's not their only use. They're also perfect for adding some texture and interest to your meals. The next time you have some Yoplait yogurt or Quaker oatmeal, try sprinkling Sun-Maid Raisins on top to add some extra flavor.Use Wellsley Farms Almonds to spice up your green beans, or consider using crushed peanuts to make an authentic pad thai.
Dried fruits and nuts are also a tasty and satisfying addition to muffins, rolls, breads, granola bars, and cookies. You can highlight their rich tastes and flavors by showcasing them in dishes like pecan pie or apricot biscotti as well.
