Move over chips, bring on the Fruit Crisps….


I am a snacker!  So, in my efforts to live Sugar Free Naturally, I am always on the lookout for snack ideas that offer taste, crunch, and a touch of sweetness.  It’s actually turned into a fun little challenge for me!  If you’d like some guilt-free snacking as well, here’s one of my latest pleasures:  Brothers-ALL-Natural Fruit Crisps!  (And, no, I haven’t sworn off chips, but this little bag of goodness offers an alternative to both chips and candy.  Mmmmm….. )

For Help with the Soda Cravings?


For those who crave a soda now and then, I found this product this week at my local health food store and was intrigued:

Strawberry Serenity

The ingredients listed are:  95% G.T’s organic raw kombucha, organic strawberry puree (and 100% pure love).  The label also lists additional nutrients (a variety of B vitamins), probiotics, antioxidants and organic acids, whatever those are.

One serving (2 per 16 ounce bottle) contains 4 grams of sugars (probably naturally occurring), and 35 calories.

Don’t know much about kombucha tea, but I hope to learn more.  This drink tasted really good to me today.  Mmmmm.


Strawberry Feta “Salsa”


The title of this post (and the original recipe) calls this dish salsa but here in Texas, it’s not salsa without a few jalapenos and a handful of cilantro.   In spite of that, it’s been one of my favorites this summer.

1 pint strawberries, chopped

1 avocado, cut into chunks-not mashed

1/4 cup finely chopped purple onion

juice of one lime

1/4 to 1/2 cup of crumbled feta (depending on your personal taste-I always go for more)

2 tsp. olive oil (optional)

pepper, to taste (optional)

Gently stir all ingredients together.  Serve with pretzel rounds, crackers, or if you are like me- grab a spoon and eat it straight from the bowl.
