Healthy and fresh on the go snacks are always a challenge. These days it’s even tougher because I’m trying to stay gluten-free during the week— anything goes on the weekends! I know, you can grab a Larabar, a piece of fruit or a handful of nuts as you zip out the door, but that’s not going cut it for this girl. Mama needs food.
Here’s my latest creation. As I divide time between my home and office this keeps me nourished and satisfied (it’s cute, too). When I’m making the girls’ lunches in the morning, I throw one of these little jars together for me.
A pint size mason jar is the perfect portion size. I layer parfait style Greek yogurt (I’m currently obsessed with Greek Gods Yogurt), sliced almonds and dried currants. The almonds and currants pack a great punch of flavor and texture that works well with the creamy yogurt. I grab a rubber band collected from broccoli bunches and slide a small spoon in and I’m ready to go.
Selfishly, I’m posting this tip with hope that you will share some of your favorite on the go snacks with me.
