We all have days when we need fast food. We live a fast life. We need to grab something on the go.
I like to write in the snack bar of one of our grocery stores. I love to watch the people and I am so much more productive.
I watch the people and I am interested in their food choices. Deep fried chicken, wedge fries and a side of potato salad.
I overhear complaints about sore knees, diabetes and doctor’s appointments.
It seems people don’t get the connection with what they eat and their health.
Better food equals better health!
Let’s find the good stuff!
What are the best choices?
A non-cream soup with crackers
A salad with chicken or cheese and a lower fat dressing
A piece of pizza, not meat lovers
A 6 inch turkey/chicken sub, extra veggies, hold the mayo
A small bowl of chili with crackers
A small chicken wrap, hold the mayo
The best beverage choice is always water!
Wow! Good pictures make you want to eat healthy food!
What we feed our body matters.
We make the best choices even when we’re short on time.

Pina Colada parfait! Try this delightful combination for breakfast or as dessert. As an added bonus there are 9 grams of protein, which helps us feel full longer. Most women need to eat more protein. Here’s the recipe with step-by-step directions and pictures too!
1 cup of frozen pineapple chunks
2 teaspoons of flaked coconut (1 tsp. for garnish)
1 container of coconut flavored Greek yogurt (I like Wal-Mart’s Great Value brand best)
I like to use my mini food processor for this recipe. It’s great for the small quantity.
Place pineapple in processor.
Add yogurt and 1 teaspoon of coconut.
Process on high until the pineapple is cut and mixed into the yogurt. Sometimes I thaw the pineapple slightly so that it cuts easier.
Then place the mixture in a chilled parfait glass.
Top with the remaining teaspoon of coconut and 1 small piece of pineapple as a beautiful garnish.
This can be eaten right away or placed in the freezer for ½ an hour.
This is a delicious breakfast on a hot summer morning or a delightful healthy dessert.
I ate this one as part of my lunch!
Here’s the nutrition breakdown.
