I don’t know what it was that enticed me to dip my string cheese in peanut butter, but I did, and I loved it. Think about what you want, but I tell you it’s surprisingly delicious. Dietitians like me are always recommending a high protein snack, and I really don’t think it gets any better than this.

String cheese (7 grams protein) + 1 T peanut butter (3-4 grams protein) = 10-11 grams protein

Yeah!

And I’m pretty sure one of my favorite TV dietitians, Joy Bauer, would approve. Have I mentioned that I get to meet her soon?! I can’t really talk about it a whole lot on my blog, but I’m very excited. Joy has many of the of the same opinions about food and nutrition that I do, and whenever she is on the Today show I just love the answers that she provides! They are always realistic and research-based (great combination).

And how about these shoes for another wonderful discovery?

I found these on the Okabe website. They have a great selection of cute flip-flops to wear for a beach wedding. Why pay for expensive shoes when you are getting married in the sand?! These will match my cream-colored dress perfectly, and I’ll show off my beautiful feet (which won’t be beautiful until I get them heavily pedicured).

QUESTION: What’s your favorite really random snack?!
If you got married on a beach, did you wear flip-flops? Just out of curiosity, what would you recommend as a centerpiece for the tables at a beach wedding and reception?
