Do you struggle to eat healthy? Do you have a sweet tooth? The solution to this is a healthy treat. Having healthy food around in a convenient format makes it easy to stay on track. Pre-make healthy snacks and put in small servings so you can grab and go. This is great for singles, couples, or families.
As a busy family, you often eat on the go. Usually we reach in the fridge or panty to grab something fast and not always healthy. Try keeping some No Bake Energy Balls or Banana Bites around as healthy on the go snacks. These are kid friendly! Involve the kids and let them help make them. We made these for our Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours. Enjoy!!
