It’s Snack Time!
I’ve always been a snacker. I remember coming home from school, dumping my backpack on the floor and making a b-line for the cupboard for my favorite cheese wiz and tortilla chip snack. Oh, those were the days! Now that I am in my mid-thirties I’m still all about snack time but I try to keep things a bit healthier. I make sure I stock up on healthy snacks that satisfy my cravings but also have some nutritional value as well. Snacks shouldn’t be boring, they should be something fun that you look forward to! So even if you are counting your macros or going keto, try to have fun with your snacks.
Many of you know that I love shopping at Giant, I’ve been a loyal customer since I was a kid but also have had a long-standing partnership with Peapod to create and share some of my favorite recipes! They are my go to because I can order all of my groceries to my doorstep and it’s way more affordable than any other food delivery service I’ve found! I love that Giant gives you both options to shop easily in-store or order online because we are all busy and sometimes I just don’t have time to make it to the store! I’d rather be home making myself a snack!
Whether you’re getting your kids ready to go back to school or you are just looking to amp up your routine at home, I’ve come up with some easy snack ideas to keep the entire family happy.
