Time and time again, one of the common questions I get from people trying to live healthier is about what to eat, especially in between meals and during snack time. I actually know a someone that has said that she eats’ healthy but, snacks “dirty”. That’s just sad because consistently snacking dirty is damaging.
There are lots of tasty options but, it just takes some investigating and taste testing to see which ones work best for you.
