Top 2 Tuesday: Healthy snacks

Hey guys!!

I'm linking up with Taylor for Top 2 Tuesday's again this week. It seems to be pretty fitting for me to post about healthy snacks and recipes since i'm trying to loose a little weight before my trip in march. (See this post) I am going to love going to everyone else's sites for some ideas on what to eat! Mine are pretty basic because I don't really enjoy eating healthy yet, but hopefully I will find some yummy things to try.

1. Special K Bars (Strawberry)

I really love these and they are only 90 calories. I find them to be very filling and they are good to eat as a snack or for breakfast. I have only had the strawberry flavor, but i'd like to try other flavors too. Have any of you tried any other flavors?? I'm up for suggestions.

2. Bananas
(Is it ridiculous that I always think of the Gwen Stefani "Hollaback Girl"song when spelling bananas?? HAHA)

I love to have a banana for breakfast every morning before class. I like them when they are sort-of mushy but not browning on the outside. We always buy them when they are really green so that they last longer so  have to be careful to eat them at the right time.
It's also yummy to make banana bread and if you want to make it quick the Pillsbury Quick Banana Bread is pretty tasty. Next time I would add some bananas in there though. 

It claims it is 110 calories a slice so it's not too horrible, but surely not the best. When I made it I mixed in a swirl of cinnamon too and that made it really good. 

Thanks for visiting!

Newest follower from Top 2 Tues! I love Special K bars too! My favorite flavor is chocolately pretzel, but I just tried chocolate chip cookie. Both are really good!! They are both still only 90 calories.
