Snacking is often where we make the biggest mistakes. We’re hungry, we need something quick, we need something to-go, and it usually ends up being a processed, pre-packaged nightmare. Even when we think we’re doing good (a granola bar for instance) we are usually grabbing something packed full of added sugar & corn syrup, other additives, and who knows what else!
So, I wanted to focus on cleaning up my snack options. I needed whole-food options that were portable, easy and…duh…delicious! I wanted to go back to the basics – take out the additives and add in the YUM!
Here’s what I’ve been snacking on…
