A Snack for the Season
This time of year is jam-packed with cookies, candy, and other assorted sugar-high inducers, so you’ll probably be looking for a healthy snack to bring the kids back to neutral. But it is the holiday season, so it needs to be fun, too!
Bread, sprinkled with sweet, red cranberries ought to do the trick. (And throw in some nuts for extra protein!)
Ways to serve it up:
- Bake a loaf fresh for the week, then slice as you go.
- Bake several loaves and freeze, pulling them out as needed. (Muffins and quick breads can be frozen for up to three months.)
- Slice loaves and freeze servings individually (wrap each in plastic wrap, then in a resealable plastic bag). Kids can grab one from the freezer in the morning for a snack if they are going straight from school to an after-school activity.
