[ Ants on a Log ]

There is something comforting about snacking on a childhood staple. “Ants on a Log” was definitely one of my favorite munchies growing up & still is. I used blueberry Craisins on my “celery log” instead of raisins & sunflower butter instead of peanut butter. Celery is fab to juice, add to salads or throw in soups…especially since it contains negative calories [ more calories are expended chewing & digesting, than in the veggies itself ]. Bring on the celery!

    I tried this with almond butter today and it was so delicious! It was almost 4 pm, and I was starting to feel hungry so I had a celery stick with craisins and almond butter…very filling. My need for further snacking until dinner later tonight went away!

    Thanks for introducing me to almond butter. It is yummy!
