Snack Time and Florida’s October Produce
|October 5, 2012||Posted by Melissa under Healthy Eating, Produce, Recipes|
I recently read an article about the top 10 favorite snack foods in the United States. The study behind the article focused on brands rather than specific food types, but it made me think about the things I have (and those I should have) around the house for snacking.
October in Florida brings a great crop of fruits and vegetables that lend themselves to snack time. My goal for the month is to have fresh vegetables like carrots, celery, cucumbers, squash and broccoli around for snacking. Since I love chips and dip/salsa, I figured that I would try this Florida Eggplant Dip. It looks delicious and will pair well with fresh dippers.
