Healthy snacking with Christine Avanti

Knock Down The Munchies With These Super Snacks

Have you gotten addicted to Angry Birds? How great is it to knock down those structures? Today were going to use the angry birds (a game ap for the ipad) and other snacks to knock down the munchies.


1) Light babybel cheese (50 cal, 6gm protein) - this tasty protein is a perfect pairing for a little fruit or veggies. Dress them up like angry birds and they are no less addictive than the mega-hit video game.


2) Popchips (100 cal, 3 gm fat)- the inescapable but tasty new potato chip that makes it hip to be healthy. If you still haven't tried Popchips you really should because they are the best healthy chips ever.


3) Wrigley's Extra Dessert Delights! Brand new dessert flavors such as Key Lime Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, and Mint Chocolate Chip will satisfy tastebuds without the additional 1000 calories of a big dessert. Actually these new flavors are zero-calories - which would you rather have 1000 calories or zero calories? Try these, you'll love 'em.


4) Kind bars (190 calories) - these really are too delicious to be legal- and they help stabilize blood sugar. They are natural, filling - and kind!

God is faithful!

This week, we are asking for stories of God's faithfulness and we are blown away by Him! Check out the story we just heard from Kelli in Wadesville, IN:

"My husband was being deployed to Iraq. He was leaving a wife, 2 year old daughter and a brand new baby boy. I was sending off a husband that I knew if something were to happen to him in Iraq, he would not spend eternity with our Saviour. One weekend we attended a meeting for the deploying soldiers. They took the wives in a room and told us that with the type of missions our husbands would be going on, not all of them would make it back. My faith became real when we were arguing one afternoon. Things were very stressful before he left. He was leaving in 2 days and still had not asked God to be his Savior. We were fightinig and things blew up so I went to the front porch and prayed. I told God my husband is not ready to go until he accepts him as his Savior and instead of worrying, I am turning it over to him. I said amen, walked back into the house and my husband was on the phone. It was his commander calling to tell him his deployment had been delayed for six months. God had moved a huge mountain and moved it fast. During that six months my husband came to the Lord."
