Snack Secret

This Sparked Me!

Eating sugar snap peas instead of chips or other high carb snacks has helped me stay on track to healthy eating. Using a scale and portion control has taught me to serve healthy portions not just serve.

using 1 cup containers to pack for lunch is key to portion control for lunch too.

    I like them too. The other thing I like are carrots. :)

    Snap Peas are great, and sweet, but I also like English Peas, I like that it takes time to peel them and eat the peas out, it helps with portion control, which is an issue for me. Also, just tried Jicama- kind of a cross between a potato and an apple. Makes a great snack plain or spritzed with lime juice.

    I love sugar snap peas in stir frys but have not ever tried them plain. I think they will be on my grocery list for the week. Thanks for the great idea.

    Yes, snap peas are awesome! They help stave off my sweet cravings too!

    Great! I too love sugar snap peas, and actually just ate a cup or so of them for breakfast the other day. Amazing how we can change our habits and our tastes for the good of the cause.

    I will have to try them; I don't think I've had any uncooked before. Maybe they'll even grow in my garden emoticon

    Where can I get a scale from for measuring food?

    Costco does sell those GIANT bags! Kinda rough to make it thru a whole bag with just two people! Snacking on them is the solution! Thanks! : )

    I will search for some sugar snap peas. I forgot how good they were.

    I'm going to try them tonight. Hubby is bringing some home. (How's that for a terrific guy?) emoticon

    I love the 1/2 c and 1 c serving containers. I use them every day. Great to measure your cereal, and I measure out 1/2c of milk and put it in one of my empty water bottles.

    My peas usually never make it into the house from the garden!
