That, and it's hard for me to gain weight- a lame excuse I use to convince myself that what I eat doesn't matter. Nevermind that I have horrible PMS, painful long periods, bad skin, and low energy! (Skinny does not equal healthy folks!)
Using my new Vitamix to make green smoothies is one way I've managed to get better-for-me foods into my body. I usually have a smoothie for breakfast and/or an mid-day snack. Smoothies are seriously the secret to eating healthy without sacrificing the lazybones lifestyle!
Still, I often find myself stuffing my face with chips, crackers, baked goods, and trail mix. Why? Three reasons: I get overwhelmed in the grocery store and make bad choices (or no choices at all). I don't like cooking much therefor food usually dies in my fridge before I eat it. I am horrible at figuring out what foods go well together.
So today for Meatless Monday I've created a list of my favorite healthy foods that don't need to be cooked, blended, juiced, soaked, dried, paired, or dressed up to be enjoyed. I'm talking about food in the nude.

These are 10 awesome snacks that can be zoinked from the grocer or garden then mindlessly nibbled exactly the way mother nature made 'em. Many of these are in season locally now too. Extra bonus!
What's your favorite food in the nude?
