In one of my last posts I shared some snack inspiration. I simplified snack prep with a mix & match list of foods to combine – foods that included a protein + carb + fat.
Being a nutritionist, I love that list of simple ideas that I (and you) consisting mainly whole foods.
Being a foodie, I love THIS list with fun combinations of whole foods with healthy all-in-one snacks. No need to pack 2-3 separate foods because these snacks contain carbohydrate, protein and fat – in every bite.
It’s so easy to fall into a rhythm of offering similar foods over and over. I recently noticed I was getting a little lazy and uninspired when it came to packing snacks. Clementines, avocado, roasted chickpeas, pear, hardboiled eggs were the staples being rotated around throughout the week. That gets boring for everyone – and doesn’t help my little ones expand their palate.
So I had to give myself a kick in the butt and start thinking outside the snack box. Starting with these yummy all-in-one snacks.
