I will guaranty you that anybody that gets a case of the munchies can’t tell me that their willpower will be enough to keep them from digging out the potato chips or the cookie jar when there is no one looking.

Maybe you are like me don’t buy the things you love to eat. If I have something tasty, it is going to get eaten.

Practically every piece of junk food that is sold at your local convenience store, known as bad snacks, should be replaced with a healthy snack alternative. But what do those look like? More importantly, what do they TASTE like? Thankfully broccoli cookies never appeared on the menu, but nor did anything healthy that also passed as a tasty snack. I have not-so-fond memories of “healthy” cookies that my mother used to make when the sugar and butter supplies in our household ran low.
Today, Carolyn Hansen, the author of 100 Healthy Raw Snacks And Treats is quite aware of this problem. She is making the recipes that she came up with during that period available to anyone who could benefit from being able to grab low-calorie snacks on the run that also taste great. She was determined to find snack recipes that did away with the usual cast of bad characters: sugar, flour, butter, and replace these with healthy substitutes that she could live with as a bodybuilder looking to maintain a healthy diet during her preparations for physique contests. That was some years ago.
Apparently, if you could see some of the photographs of the snacks and treats that she has come up with you would not hesitate to volunteer to be a guinea pig in her kitchen. Do you believe that you can make cheescake alternatives that use no dairy, but look and taste delicious nonetheless? This is just one of the recipe types that fill her book.
For more information on this mouth-watering topic I recommend you get yourself across to her site at 100 Healthy Raw Snacks And Treats, grab yourself a copy of the recipe book and put your blender to work. The nice thing about Carolyn’s recipes? You don’t even need a stove to prepare them – these are all no cook recipes made from natural ingredients that can go straight to your mouth.
