Healthy Snacks To Go
You're getting packed up to leave the house - you have the kids all dressed (finally) and their clothes somewhat match. You've stocked the diaper bag and/or threw some baby wipes in your purse. You will be gone all day, so you know you need to grab snacks for the kids. The only problem? You all made a commitment to eat only "real food" and now you have no idea what to take on the go!
This scenario has been my life way too many times. It seems like packaged and processed foods taunt me with their tasty, tasty chemicals and their way too easy to grab bags and boxes. I've searched high and low for delicious alternatives, and I finally found a fabulous resource to share with all of you.
Meet Healthy Snacks To Go by Katie Kimball. This recipe stocked eBook is not only amazing my taste buds but my super picky children's taste buds as well. The delicious recipes like the Tater Skin Crispies, the Peanut Butter Kisses and the German Chocolate Power Balls are nothing short of tiny, tasty miracles. Why? Because somehow Katie has managed to combine health and flavor and texture and convenience. YES. I'm serious.
I don't want to spoil the fun and share any of the recipes here, because it's just so darn easy to download Katie's book (only $6.95!). But Katie does offer this sneak peek recipe for Soaked Granola Bars (the tastiest you've ever tried).
You might also recognize Katie's name from her widely read blog, Kitchen Stewardship where she writes about traditional, real food and how that parlays into her faith. It's an epic resource if you're looking for an inspired destination and inspiration for feeding a healthy family.
No longer will we be forced to grab the cheddar crackers that would last eons on the shelf, instead we have fresh, homemade real food on the go. Hooray!
