A few of my Favorite Snacks

Roasted Garlic: – So EASY but SOOO good!!!

Just buy some heads of Garlic, chop of about a quarter inch off the top to reveal all the cloves of garlic. ( you might want to make 3 or 4 of these if you are a Garlic lover like us)

Take all of your Garlics and put them into a muffin pan with the cut end facing up. Pour a little olive oil all over the tops, not too much. Put them in your oven at 450 for like 45 minutes – 1hr.  When the garlic cloves are popping up and browned, take a butter knife and pull it out and it will be incredibly soft. You can spread this on crackers or we like to eat it with steaks!

Cucumber Dip is sooo easy too..this is one my aunt taught me waaay back when… –  I eat this by the spoonfuls sometimes and other times I eat it with pita bread and kalamata olives.

  1. 1 cup of sour cream
  2. ½ Plain Yogurt
  3. A cucumber

–          Peel and cut your cumber length wise in  half. Proceed to cut each half into 4 sticks. Take each one of your sticks and chop into them creating small chunks of cucumber. Mix together Sour Cream, Plain Yogurt and cucumber chunks and add salt to taste!

The Roasted Red Pepper Dip is one of my FAVS!! It goes great with just crackers or you can make it to put all over chicken or other meat! Plus it’s really easy to make!

  1. A jar of roasted red peppers ( you can usually find them in the grocery store with the pickles and other jarred specialities)
  2. A block of Feta
  3. Black Pepper

About healthyeasyfoods

Food makes me happy. Fake food and chemicals being added to my food do not make me happy. I have a growing concern about two major things. 1. The quality of food. 2. Our choice of consumption of food as a nation. With this being said I can understand how an American lifestyle influences fast, easy and cheap to be the three magnet factors to food choice however I think we need to go back to the basics and remember just how easy it is to make good food, good for you without breaking the bank or spending hours sweating away in the kitchen.
