The trick here is to use spicings (or hot sauce, cayenne pepper) to LIVEN things up a bit.  Using cayenne pepper and garlic is very healthful for you.  And I think  you’ll be glad to know that onions are too.


You can sautee onions — but sometimes using them in their RAW state can be tasty, too.  On a sandwich, or as a garnish on the side (Green onion).

Speaking of sandwiches, I wanted to mention that the California Grilled Veggie sandwich above is quite flavorful ..  it is on focaccia bread, for one thing.  Additionally, there is garlic & olive oil on the sandwich (and the Feta cheese lends some “zip” to this snack too).

Not to mention the crisp Red Onion you’ll adorn yr sandwich with!   red-onion-zesty-foods

Certainly, there are more healthy snacks for you teens that are worth mentioning – for instance, the Chili-Lime Pumpkin seeds …or Dried Apple snacks   dried-Apples
