Late Night Snacking Part 2

After an afternoon grocery store trip, I’ve come to share my findings on healthier snack options I found for my husband. I must start out by saying that my husband, as lovely as he is, is one difficult person to shop for.

The only fruits he will eat are apples and raisins. The only vegetables he likes are carrots and lettuce. None of which he wants to munch on in the evening. He also is not into trying new foods. I was eating some pomegranates before dinner and suggested he try one. He looked at them and responded, “I don’t eat things that are purple.”

So with that said, this is what I came up with:

Peanuts

Wheat crackers

Crunchy honey oat cereal

Honey wheat pretzels

Tortilla chips

And lastly and kind of funny, these ridiculous, yet somewhat intriguing, Whonu? cookies.

I love how these chocolate cookies contain “As much iron as a cup of spinach” and “As much vitamin E as two cups of carrot juice.” They claim to be an “excellent source” of 20 vitamins and minerals. All with only 6 grams of fat and 13 grams of sugar. I bought them as somewhat of a joke, but in all seriousness, I really care about my husband. I want the absolute best for him and I will buy him Whonu? cookies forever if I have to.
