I get this question a lot: “what can I snack on?” So we know we should be eating more fruits and veggies, healthy fats, whole grains, and organic lean protein, but seriously, what can we snack on that is healthy and satisfying?! 

Here are some of my favorites, enjoy the recipes too!
  • Organic Nori seaweed – wrap up some avocado, sprouts, lettuce & tomatoes
