Snack Time

So I know everyone loves a good snack just like I do. I used to eat just about anything from chips to ice cream. I love ice cream. I now eat frozen yogurt, I buy the 6oz containers and whenever I want some ice cream I stick it in the fridge for about an hour and presto, yummy ice cream!! Anyways back to my point, I know it’s sometimes hard to come up with a healthy snacks that aren't boring. So I made a list of good healthy snack alternatives to help you. Hope you enjoy!
