A Quick Easy Apple Snack

[ 2 apples with a  swipe of soy butter & a sprinkle of ground flaxseeds ]

My eating schedule is sometimes tricky; between working two jobs, blogging, working-out, my dog, friends, Michael & family time [ !!!!! ] it’s rare that I have time to sit down & eat a full meal. I am always looking to create new snack ideas that are nutritious & time efficient, so this sliced apple snack is on the top of my list. I took this in to work the other night & all my co-worker’s stole a slice.

Quick Skinny Tip: Justin’s Nut Butter [ I like the almond butter ] is a delicious substitution for peanut butter too. And the small packets fit right in a purse or wallet!

  1. What exactly is the benefit of flaxseeds? I see it everywhere on healthy living blogs but no one seems to fully explain the benefits!

    1. Hey Meghan:

      These are the benefits of ground flaxseeds [ these are easier to digest than whole flaxseeds ]:

      + They’re high in fiber.
      + Flaxseeds create a “full feeling.”
      + Help reduce the risk of heart disease.
      + Contain omega-3 fatty acids [ these fatty acids aid in menstrual pain & help with depression! ]
      + They help relieve constipation [ they substitute as a laxative ].

      I hope that helps!

    2. Thanks for bringing this up, and thank you Lauryn for the list of benefits, was very curious about this as well !

  2. Thanks for posting up the benefits,I’m currently looking into an raw food diet.

  3. I can so relate. My eating schedule is just crazy. I don’t really follow a schedule and it really depends on my availability and the workload. Thus, these easy to prepare and quick snacks are my lifesavers. Can’t wait to try these.
