First, I found this in Health magazine:

Sorry, this got crumpled in my back pocket when I went to pick everything up at the store. Basically, it's snack ideas: apple slices + peanut butter, berries + cottage cheese, crackers + black bean dip, bell peppers + hummus, broccoli + cheese (?). When I got home with all my goodies, I cut up the fruit and veggies and put the dips in mini tupperware so it would be easy to grab and go. Having everything precut helps me too since I don't have a lot of time to prep healthy meals while I'm taking care of the baby. Plus, I can alternate between healthy snacks and pie and not feel as guilty as I would if I'd just eaten pie all day. Which almost happened yesterday.
I also put these together:
Baby greens, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, sunflower seeds and dressing. You can buy these mini ziplock bags in the beading department of Michael's. Because the dressing and seeds are in ziplocks, you can make a few for the week and store in the fridge.
I find it's much easier to eat pie while blogging about salad. Man, my husband's going to be super healthy!
