The Ultimate Snack

What makes a great snack?

What are the qualities that the ultimate snack must have?

I've compiled a list which defines my idea of a perfect snack:

1. It should have an element of crunch

2. Should be quick and easy to prepare

3. No utensils, just finger food

4. Bite-size portions, small enough to just toss in mouth.

5. Not too filling, so as not to spoil your dinner.

6. Nothing starchy that'll leave a film on your teeth.

7. As always, nutritious!

Step 1: Ingredients & Tools

3 simple ingredients:

Separate stalks, wash and pat dry.

Slice stalks into smaller pieces, say just over an inch long.

Step 3: Filling

Spread cream cheese into celery pieces, forming mounds on each one.

Step 4: Topping

Dip each celery piece, cheese-side down, into the seeds.

They should adhere nicely.
