Snack Attack: Pears, Blue Cheese and Walnuts

1 Bosc Pear, sliced
1 ounce creamy Blue cheese - like Danish
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Spread a thin layer of cheese onto the pear slice and sprinkle with nuts. YUM.

Why we like it:
Pears are high fiber and have a good amount of vitamin C. They are a good cracker substitute too.
Blue cheese In my opinion what is NOT to like about blue cheese plus it provides calcium. If you don't like the Blue try a soft goat cheese.
Walnuts are high in omega 3 fatty acids.

Fit's tip: Bosc pears are an instant gratification pear - they are eaten when they're hard, so there's often no need to wait for them to ripen.

Throw all of these ingredients onto a bed of mesclun and top with a lite vinagrette and you've got a scrumptious salad!

Thanks DesignRchic for the cracker info about the Kashi - very thorough. I also wanted to say that Pears are in season right now so they are excellent this time of year.

i like to snack on frozen veggies or fruit. i know that sounds weird but i always like to munch when i'm at my desk. i don't want to get 'corporate butt' so something with few calories and high fiber is always good.

When I consider which cracker is healthier, I look at sugar and fiber. I love the Kashi TLC: 7 Grain Crackers Nutrition Facts: Serving Size: 15 Crackers Calories 130 Total Fat 3g Saturated Fat 0g Trans Fat 0g Cholesterol 0mg Sodium 160mg 7% Total Carbohydrate 22g Dietary Fiber 2g Sugars 3g Protein 3g

I love Blue Cheese and I love walnuts. If I can eat those two and have a pear for some fiber (definelty need more fiber in my diet :), that is great!!! QUESTION: I tend to snack on wheat thins all the time, they sound healthy and taste good, are there any alternatives that are actually healthy? I think Kashi has some type of cracker. Thanks!
