11 in 2011, Day 8: Favorite Healthy Snack

You are probably like me in the fact that your favorite snack changes every so often.

Right now, my favorite healthy snack is salmon and cucumber slices.

Take a cucumber and slice it into rounds, if you want~ put a little light cream cheese on the cucumber, place a slice of smoked salmon on top and then add a few capers and/or feta cheese.

This is very simple to make and doesn't take long which is always a good thing in a snack.  Oh yea, it's delish!


I haven't posted an actual outfit post in a couple days, so now it is time to catch up.
This is what I wore on Wednesday
This outfit was inspired by an outfit I had seen in a magazine a month or so ago.  The girl was wearing a leopard print skirt and a strip t.  
Alas, there was no leopard print skirt to be found in my closet.
I went to the leopard print item I did own, a sweater.
My pants have a thin brown stripe in them. 
I do wish it would have been a wider stripe, but you have to work with what is in the closet, right!?
I added the ombre orange scarf for some added color and texture.
I have on a pair of amber drop earrings that pick up the orange in the scarf.
  Down side of long hair, hides the cute earrings.

Hmmm, I'm not a fan of salmon but the rest of the family is. In fact we have a bunch that my husband recently caught in Alaska and had shipped home. I could eat cucumber with a little salt all day long!

OOO I love this look! The sweater and the scarf and the stripe in the pants are all something I would do...it looks great!! My favorite healthy snack right now includes a new peanut butter I found called NATURALLY MORE...with flaxseeds and Omega 3s. I love it! I found it at WalMart. I have a panel of ladies discussing this very topic in my new post! Please check it out!

Brett--I love the orange in the scarf against the animal print. This is a great look! Your snack sound delicious! I may have to try it soon. My favorite snack is hummus, with just about anything I can find to dip into it.

And by all means, DO see me the links to the makeup videos.

That's such a great sweater and scarf! The look great together and on you.

I wish I could get on board with smoked salmon. I love it cooked, but smoked it seems too fishy for me. I'm sure it's a mental thing than anything else! I was a big hummus fan as a healthy snack, but it became one of those things I ate so much of I needed a break. I'm back on the search for an easy and healthy snack!
