In less than 5 minutes you can make this warm, antioxidant and iron rich snack!
Pour some water into a medium sized pot and place a steamer basket into it. Make sure that the water is not high enough to touch the bottom of the steamer basket.
Add kale and spinach and cover on low for about 3-4 minutes. The key is to just lightly steam your vegetables:
Once the kale and spinach are lightly steamed, remove them from the basket and put them into a serving bowl:
Add a little lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste:
Mix it up and enjoy!
Embrace healthy fats with this quick snack idea!
Toast two slices of bread. Spread half of an avocado onto one of the slices:

Drizzle extra virgin olive oil and the spices onto the tomato slices:
A delicious sweet and salty on the go snack is an organic peanut butter and organic raw agave wrap.
Hummus is a high fiber and vitamin rich dip, traditionally made with chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice and tahini (ground up sesame seeds). Hummus is very simple to make and you can create delicious flavors, such as tomato basil as seen below. Eat hummus with your favorite fresh vegetables for a filling and nutritious snack.
Eat a handful of raw walnuts every day for a dose of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and minerals.
Apple slices and peanut butter are a great snack to eat when you are craving something sweet and salty. If your peanut butter is not organic (aka Jiffy or Skippy), throw it away and get an organic one. You will be amazed by the difference in taste, texture, smell, color and consistency (basically everything) plus you won’t be eating chemicals and preservatives.
One of the healthiest things you can incorporate into your diet is organic unrefined coconut oil. Spread one tablespoon onto a small piece of whole wheat bread for a dose of lauric acid and a boost to your metabolism. I recommend buying bread fresh from a bakery and not from the bread aisle at a major chain market because bread only needs four ingredients: flour, water, salt and yeast. Unfortunately, breads from markets’ bread aisles tend to have a long paragraph of ingredients which include chemical preservatives and additives, aka crap.
Dates are awesome and so are the fruit! Dates come from date palms and they are about 1.5 inches long. I eat about 2-4 of them a day. Here are some pros about this semi-strange looking treat:
A fruit that many people have not eaten before is a persimmon. Persimmons are high in fiber and vitamin A and they can be eaten raw or cooked. I prefer eating persimmons when they are crunchy like an apple, while some people prefer eating them with a spoon when they are more ripe and squishy.
