What a great article! (Thanks Andrea!) SOME recommendations for what to avoid when you're running around looking for a "quick snack." The author even asks a question you may ask youself (although, if your grandmother is younger it may not apply, ha ha!) "Would you grandmother recognize it?" I truly love the book by Michael Pollan "In Defense of Food." It's a great source to start with and it will certainly trigger your desire to learn more about what is actually in your food, and what you're eating.
Some ideas for snacks:
Granola bars--avoid the mainstream brands w/ all the sugar and preservatives. I really really love Lara Bars and Ms. Jen has even made some herself since the ingredients are so simple.
Nuts--Just a handful can certainly curb your appetite. Trader Joe's has a great variety.
Fruit--plum, pear, apple, banana--check to see what is in season. :)
