Beverages Snacks and Desserts

Often people stray from a diet when choosing beverages, snacks, and desserts. Here are some suggestions to keep things simple, and to keep you on the Anti-Inflammation Syndrome Diet Plan.

For cold beverages, stick with sparkling mineral or still waters and a wedge of lemon, lime, or orange. Many sparkling mineral waters, such as Gerolsteiner, have substantial calcium and magnesium levels—good for your health. For hot beverages, a herbal tea or a green tea is a good choice.

For snacks, it is best to stick with unsalted raw or roasted nuts. You can make your own blend of nuts and seeds that is probably superior to any commercial trail mix. Use almonds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, macadamias, sunflower seeds, and organic raisins. You can also adapt a Moroccan appetizer by eating a couple of dates or figs with half a dozen raw almonds.

For desserts, one of the issues is not eating too much—a problem when you make or bake a dessert at home. It may be better to buy small amounts of "healthy" dessert items. Some possibilities include small amounts of Earthsong Cranberry-Orange and Apple-Walnut Whole Food Bars (www.earthsongwholefoods.com), Jennie's Coconut Macaroons (www.redmillfarms.com) bars, Nutiva Flax & Raisin bars (www.nutiva.com), and Hadley date rolls with almonds (www.hadley dates.com). Another possibility is a Van's apple-cinnamon toaster waffle, with almond butter or banana slices and powdered cinnamon.
