Healthy Snacks: The Holy Grail!

This week I invited my dear friend Liz Rosenblatt to share a couple of her fantastic healthy snacks recipes at my cooking demo at Chabad Washington Heights.
The demo theme, as so often with me, was healthy and quick. But not only that: my children run the wonderful Osher Early Learning Center.
Many parents are in attendance at my cooking demo: Quick Healthy Kids Meals. And here I think all of us can relate:

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Healthy Snacks!

A cook and baker after my own heart, Liz uses only natural ingredients and rightfully sniffs at all processed commercial convenience foods. Like me, she understands implicitly that resorting to them – not cooking and baking from scratch – is indeed where the real waste of time, money, resources and well-being lurks. Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby! Yes, this is what I hum to myself and how I exhort the crowds to eat right all day long!

Whip up a nice big batch of Healthy Snacks!

Remember: You can do it, and you do it better! You will make the best and healthiest treats in no time, for you, your kids and your guests. Eat some, freeze some, you’ll always be covered and never succumb to all those sugary and worthless commercial snacks insidiously called healthy.

Either that, or hire Liz herself, the magician!

She’s available, and delivers in the Tristate area. What she wrote about our product line made my day:

“I normally don’t write about new products. I use them and post a picture or speak about it. But I feel that this time, it is warranted
The first time I tried Levana Nourishments was when I received some samples from her when she was first starting her company. Levana saved her husband’s life by combining grains, seeds and nuts together and delivering them to the hospital so he could heal quicker. My packages came in the mail to my parents’ home in Florida since I was there. At the time , my dad was out of the hospital ( Baruch HaShem) and was given Ensure. He was chugging those drinks down yet he looked malnourished. I opened a package of Levana’s blends and decided to add it to a vegetable soup on the stove. It was a hit ! My dad loved it and drank that soup as if he made it himself ! I then opened another package and tried mixing it in my muffins. I always look for protein powders to mix in. And this time I used her magic replacement powder and I must say it enhanced my brownies and tasted divine. Not only are my muffins filled with good hearty healthy ingredients, but then it was filled with vitamins and everything we need to become strong and stay healthy. I wholeheartedly recommend her Nourishments product to add to your dishes. You will be glad you did”.

Liz made her super healthy snacks, throwing in our product. our guests watched her in amazement, as she used nothing more than a bowl, a fork and a cup, and made them in a jiffy. And the best part is, it’s all gluten-free, mostly vegan (except one recipe) and contains no sugar, only minimal amounts of honey, maple syrup or date syrup.

OK, enough said. Now get ready for the treats!
