Tired of the same ol’ snack options?

It’s easy to get into a snacking rut, and buy the same boring items again and again. However, have you noticed when you let this happen, it magically takes forever to decide what you want to eat?

How many times have I stood with the refrigerator door open, seemingly forever, because nothing ever sounds enticing? Too many.

I’ve started making a point to buy snack ingredients at the market that signify fall. Fresh seasonal foods that I know I’ll get excited about when I open the fridge.

Pomegranates, honey crisp apples, beets, cranberries, pickled veggies, and of course figs. These are all foods that amp up flavor and appeal to this time of year.

With this revitalized mindset of reinventing snacking, I’ve discovered I focus more on the experience of the snack, rather than just filling my belly.

Flavor and textural combinations are a high priority, while keeping the snack simple enough to assemble in minutes. When I do this, I enjoy my snack so much more, and tend not to overeat.
