A few of my favorite treats!

Spring is here!!! You know what that means?! Yep. It's almost SUMMER, which means beach trips {bikini}, 100 degree weather {shorts and tanks}, country concerts {daisy dukes and boots}, weddings {dresses, dresses, dresses}, so what I'm trying to say is it's time for me to shed my 'winter layer' of FAT. Here are a few of my favorite healthy treats to snack on....

Frozen yogurt bites-
  • Put yogurt in a bag, cut the corner, make bitesize circles on wax paper
  • Let freeze over night
  • Enjoy!



  • Greek yogurt, agave nectar, & granola-
    Amazing, love it for breakfast!

Kiwi-

  • Prevents Asthma
  • Prevents wheezing and coughing, especially in children
  • Protects our DNA from mutations
  • Provides a healthy amount of antioxidants and vitamins
  • Helps prevent colon cancer thanks to a high fiber content


  • Mangoes-

  • Phenols are presents in Mangoes, and this compound phenol has strong antioxidant and anticancer capacities.
  •  Mango Fruit are rich in iron, thus patients with anemia and pregnant women are advised to consume it regularly.
  • Eating mangoes helps in relieving congested pores of the skin.
  • Patients suffering from acidity and weak digestion can benefit from the consumption of mangoes.
  • It is a fruit which is low in carbohydrates and is an rich antioxidant.
  • The rich source of vitamin A (beta-carotene), E and Selenium present in Mangoes helps in protection from heart diseases and other problems.
