I am a snacker first and last. I get the munchies on a fairly regular basis. Eating smaller meals and having a late morning and later afternoon snack can actually be beneficial, and is sometimes necessary for me, but eating healthy snacks is sometimes the challenge, especially with my sweet tooth.
I do not happen to eat a lot of bread. I used to, but since our whole grain bread is heavy and carbohydrate rich, I like to get my carbs from things that I like better. Because of this I don’t always get all the jam I’d like – especially our wonderful homemade jam. When I have a craving for some jam, instead of spreading it on a cracker or piece of bread I will sometimes eat it on a slice of cheese. :-) I probably get more jam than I should sometimes, but with some of our recent efforts at lower sugar jams this is not as much an issue as it once was. Also, the freezer jams are more like eating fresh fruit spreads to me.
It’s not only tasty, it’s colorful too! Yum!
