Got the Munchies? 5 Simple and Healthy Mexican-Inspired SnacksMari Hernandez-Tuten
I’ve been on a hiatus from eating healthier, but starting, um, tomorrow I’m getting back on track! I always have the “munchies”, but now that I’m trying to eat better, I realized that snacking isn’t bad, as long as it’s healthy foods and three hours after my main meal.
Since Mexican food is my favorite, I came up with these five simple and healthy Mexican inspired snacks:
