Today, I thought I’d share a healthier alternative to snack on than last weeks’ recipe.
Over the last year, we have been working on improving our diet and daily routine in an effort to improve our health. My husband was diagnosed with a lesion on his pituitary gland in his brain (it’s not serious), but it’s shown us that in addition to HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), eating better and getting more exercise would benefit us. Especially since my husband is overweight and a smoker. He is also pre-diabetic.
Did you know that pre-diabetes is a misnomer? It doesn’t actually mean that you’re on the verge of getting diabetes; you actually have it but it’s in the very earliest stages of the disease. With proper nutrition and exercise, an individual is completely capable of staving off the negative effects of this disease until much later- which is what a diabetic wants to do! (Or should).
With that in mind, here’s today’s favorite recipe:
Peanut Butter Apple Dip
(Link at the end of this post- it’ll take you directly to my Pinterest pin).
This dip is just three ingredients, and it’s so tasty! It got my kids’ seal of approval, too! Make as much or as little as you want- I quadrupled the recipe (I think!! That’s a very broad generalization, lol), and my kids gobbled it all up. I only got a couple slices (I cut up two Gala apples for the three of us to share; I barely got the chance to taste the dip!) It’s healthy, quick and easy to make, and (I think) the perfect dish to bring to a potluck or serve at a party. Your guests will love it, too!
You will need:
Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
Peanut Butter (natural or whichever your favorite is)
Sound like something you want to try?
Here’s the recipe, which I saved from Something Swanky on Pinterest. Follow the link for the directions, or if it’s easier, I’ll include them below for you:
1 TBSP Peanut Butter
1 TBSP Greek Yogurt
1/2 TBSP Honey
Mix together, and serve!
