I can’t possibly count the number of times I’ve turned to the glorious Internet for healthy snack inspiration. I’ve come home nearly every day after school finding myself craving a snack. And, a few years ago, the first place my mind went was “Nutella and Ritz crackers.” Luckily, I’ve come to my senses and now know how toxic those foods are. Now, I enjoy eating healthier snacks that not only taste just as good, but also keep my energy up… unlike what I used to eat. I thought to myself, enough is enough. I have to create my own healthy snack page because, I’ve gotten go good at knowing what’s healthy and what’s not when it comes to snacking. Why not share the ideas with others?
I’ve put together a list of healthy AND delicious snacks (both homemade and store bought) that are easy to make and affordable!
