My favorite healthy snack is freshly washed baby carrots. I also like to have green peppers sliced and ready to eat on the go. Or just an apple, pear or nectarine and lots of bottled water will do.

I have to admit that I am a huge Doritos fan. I don't know if it is the fake salty cheese or the super addictive MSG, but I am totally addicted. So when I found out that Kettle brand made a tortilla chip remotely close I ran to Whole foods to try them. I have been so pleased with Tias because they are not so salty and they come in a range of yummy flavors that surpass the Doritos with all their imperfections. Anyone looking to detox needs to try them!

1/4 cp real cotage cheese mixed with a 1/2 cup of low fat fruit yogurt...carbs and protein to keep me going until dinner. Always have veggies and hummus on hand too!

I actually have two favorites: hummus with pita chips and a delicious apple sliced and dipped in creamy, smooth peanut butter. Both are loaded with protein and keep you full until dinner time!

My favorite are carrots, snap peas, celery sticks, grape tomatoes dipped in Chef Earl's plain or red-pepper hummus. Add some Stacy's Pita Chips and you have a great snack. Yummy!

My kids love to snack on spinach after school. Add a few spritz's of butter and some balsamic vinegar and they think it's great. I have to hide a bag of frozen spinach in our deep freeze to make sure I have spinach for dinner plans.

Banana "ice cream". Freeze a ripe banana and then blend it in a food processor. It will crumble at first, but then will blend into a smooth and delicious "ice cream" like texture. Add a teaspoon of peanut butter if you like and enjoy this healthy snack.

Cut fresh figs in half drizzle with some honey and bake in the oven until soft. sprinkle with chopped almonds. Or for an extra special treat add some goat cheese on top of the figs then drizzle honey and bake until soft.

Simple. I live a nice ripe banana smothered in almond butter (sometimes hazelnut butter and rarely peanut butter). That always does the trick for me.

I love to slice up carrots into strips, toss with a little extra virgin olive oil and some fresh rosemary, and bake until soft on the inside, crispy on the outside. Mix some lemon juice and sea salt into a cup of plain greek yogurt, and DIP those carrot fries! Super yummy, (even cold!) and healthy for your peepers.

On the trail ... mix of almonds, pistachios, dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips (heart healthy!). At home -- fresh blueberries and sliced peaches with a topping of creamy rice pudding (warmed) and sprinkled with crunchy ginger/pecan Gourmet Granola (the best!).

Mixed, raw nuts and bananas. Combination of carbs and protein that complement one another, plus, bananas are so portable and come in their own bio-degradable packaging. Like nuts, just softer ;)

I love to snack on organic apples cut up into wedges. I make a spread of organic sesame tahini paste, miso, fresh organic basil and minced organic garlic. It is divine tasting, nutrient dense, packed full of immune building nutrients, plant based protein, polyphenols, catchectins and anti-oxidants. Plus is is a LOT less expensive than junk food. I'm full time student, living on $13,000 annual income. I eat 100% organic and can still afford high quality food. The recipie above is my favorite "Low Carbon Footprint" snack! Good for environmental health and great for my personal health. P.S. I'm 57 years old and have no wrinkles, very little gray hair. I easily pass for late 30's according to all the folks who know me. I credit this due to eating 100% organic, macrobiotic, locavore diet since I was 15 years old in 1969. The ironic part is back in the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's, 1990's....not until "Omnivore's Dilemna" published by Michael Pollan made organic food "pop culture" and mainstream....I was ridiculed, insulted, marginalized for decades as some sort of "oddball" - back in the 1960's we were viewed as "Health Food Nuts" and cult followers. Nice to have the last laugh and finally be vindicated - that 100% organic, plant based, macrobiotic locavore diet makes common sense!

My favorite snack is to fry up some whole wheat pita with olive oil and dip the home made "chips" into some hummus and your tabouli salad! Healthy and Yummy!
