Still waiting for my SWAMI (don't really expect to see it any earlier than Wednesday....), but I'm really trying to do this right.  Some of you may remember my earlier question, where I asked whether I should start now, or wait until after my retreat in November.  With your help, I've decided to start now.

Once I came to that decision, I also realized that I can contribute items to the food table that will be healthier than the "normal" junk that is always there.  The typical things that we see are chips, candy, and things of that sort.  There will often be some sort of fruit plate, and perhaps some crudite (although I'd probably forgo most of this because I wouldn't want to be tempted by the dip.)  I've decided I will bring some bananas, maybe a box of UniBars, and some sweet potato chips.  If I'm feeling really ambitious, I might make some walnut shortbread.  I'm looking for any other suggestions that would be easy to serve on a snack table, and relatively healthy.

Thanks!

How about fruits or veggies with a compliant nut butter?  Something like celery or apples with almond butter.  The almond butter would be great with your bananas, too, and would add a little protien in between meals.

Tiny carrots to go with the celery, sliced apples and nut butter.

Cubed mozzarella cheese (don't know about your genotype though). Still, it's better than candy and chips!

I am not sure what type of activities you do on a retreat however I find that snacking on Dates is yummy. I buy the Medjool dates located in the cold section at the grocer. They are like eating candy really. I am an O + Hunter and they are a diamond food; they offer energy too. They are really good for making Date bread also. If you try them let me know what you think.

One thing I do with dates to make them "fancier" for taking them some place is to slit them and insert half of a pecan or walnut.

You can put a walnut half inside a Medjool date.     ummmm !!

Or a dab of Chevrie cheese.
