Make these Healthy Snacks with Fresh from Florida produce that is easy to find at your local grocery store. More fruits and veggies equals more nutrients. This post is sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however all opinions expressed are my own.
The past two weeks I managed to lose 10 pounds and I have to admit that it is mainly because I evaluated and cleaned up my diet a little bit by adding in more fruits and vegetables. I put forth more effort to add vegetables to each meal and incorporate them into my morning and evening snacks as well.
I will tell you that I feel like I am eating so much more food than usual and it feels good to be giving my body the micronutrients that it needs. I will admit that I am a total carb-o-holic and if I could get away with it then I would have carbs for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, and I have actually done that before except the only problem is that my weight will creep up on me if I am not careful.
Having fresh fruits and vegetables at my disposal year round is one of the great things about living in Florida and supporting Florida Farmers. I love that my produce does not have to travel far to get to my table. You can easily recognize food, produce, and even seafood that is from Florida by looking for the Fresh From Florida label in the grocery store and my store even had it marked next to the pricing, which made it so easy to find.
Two healthy snacks that I love to make especially during the winter months is sliced bell pepper with Greek yogurt and some seasonings and sliced tomatoes with some sea salt. Both of these are great snack choices that leave me feeling full and energized. Bell peppers and tomatoes are my favorite veggie to stock up on during this time of the year because they are available in abundance and can be used in anything from soups and sandwiches, to meatloaf and burrito bowls. If you are able to find the Fresh From Florida produce in your grocery store, then I encourage you to give them a try because you will not be disappointed.
