My life revolves around feeding people, and it is a full time job! Most of you are in the same situation.
Not pictured: nuts - any kind
For years, I've worked to wean us off processed snacks. They are expensive and most often less nutritious than homemade foods.
And truth be told, I genuinely prefer whole, real foods.
But to everything there is a season. And this is a season for some grab and go, prepackaged snacks.
Yes, a little pricey, but I call this my "hired help" in the kitchen. These snacks (and paper plates) are the reason I still have a soul.
I save my homemade food energy for dinners.
These pictured are some of the things I usually send in my kids' school lunches. I pass them out for breakfasts if we are in a hurry or if I had a bad night. I use them for walks, letting George eat in the stroller, keeping him from getting restless.
From after school snacks to a quick lunch for myself, these goodies are getting me through Caroline's babyhood and the adjustment to the school years. A couple of them actually are whole, real foods. And all are from Costco (of course).
What's your favorite prepackaged, no prep required snack?
