DSC_0840Nuts and seeds are such healthy snacks.  They are full of nutrition and they fill you up.  I stock up on trail mixes, plain nuts, banana chips, corn nuts, raisins, popcorn kernels, yogurt covered raisins, dried peas, and dried fruit from our local Sprouts’ bulk section.  I keep some in containers and some in baggies, so we can just grab them on the go.  It’s much cheaper to buy things this way than to try to find special gluten-free bars, and they taste better too.

Our favorite snack ideas:  popcorn, fruit, peanut butter on a banana, apples dipped in peanut butter, rice cake with cottage cheese on top, chocolate rice cake with strawberry cream cheese and strawberries, smoothies, cheese sticks, yogurt and fruit, popsicles made with yogurt, deli meat rolled up around red pepper slices, veggies dipped in hummus or salsa, baby carrots dipped in bean dip, Chex Mix, or an Almond Bar from Nature Valley.

I’d love to hear your ideas too!

  1. hmm, I can’t get anything out of bulk bins because of cross-contamination. There are always grains everywhere.
