When you plan for snacks during the week it helps prevent impulse purchases, gives you some energy to run on while you get dinner going, and keeps everyone from feeling deprived. You know the “there’s nothing to eat” mantra – translated as, “there’s nothing I can just pop in my mouth right this second with no prep.” . So, if you make sure there is always “something to eat” everyone is happy.
Some of my favorite snacks to have on hand right now come from the book Raw Energy.
I’ve mentioned in the past how fond we are of Kale Chips! That same link also lists more snack options, check it out.
Also, I’ve found that corn chips and salsa along with popcorn are good shelf stable items to keep around the house.
Currently we air pop our popcorn drizzle on some flax seed oil and then sprinkle it with sea salt and nutritional yeast.
