As we rush back to school, these healthy snacks are not only great for our kiddos, but also for us!
Are you one of those people who looks for a snack shortly after your morning coffee or mid day as the work day is starting to wind down or not just there yet?
Protein based snacks will give you the energy you need to keep going longer than your quick carbohydrate filled treat you've been thinking about, be much healthier, and will help you last longer until its actually meal time.
Check out the link for 27 Healthy & Portable High-Protein Snacks and make a list of your favorites.
Here are few of my and Karina's favorites to try:
