Snack Idea: Grilled Long Peas
This is a quick and easy healthy snack idea. Now that summer is on, and there are a lot more activities involving food, it is nice to have something tasty but healthy handy. I threw these grilled long peas in a brown paper bag and took them along with me to a barbecue. Whilst munching on them, all my friends were interested and wanted to taste the mysterious snack in my bag. It got me thinking that sometimes, the way we present healthy food is so boring that it puts everyone off, but if we put a little effort into the presentation or packaging, things would look better, hence be more inviting.
Tip: make your snacks look yummy by packing them in a different nicer way and you will be looking forward to eat them!
