Quick Back To School Snacks

1. First off, mention “Ant’s On A Log” to any kid and the name alone should strike enough curiosity to try it. By combining Organic Peanut Butter, Organic Raisins and Organic Celery, you’re left with a tasty and surprisingly sweet snack. At the same time it’s healthy, filled with great fiber, antioxidants and vitamins from the celery and raisins along with good fats and protein from the peanut butter.

2. Next, an easy to make staple that any student can create. A back-to-baiscs Vegenaise and tomato sandwich!

It’s super simple, healthy, and light. We took local tomatoes from Shenandoah Valley, sliced them and threw them on bread from Julian’s Bakery low-carb bread with grapeseed oil Vegenaise. So good! All of these snacks are extremely quick to make, healthy and light. Space your snacks and meals out throughout the day. Try eating smaller, healthy snacks in between classes and throughout the day. Stay tuned for more healthy back to school meals on the site!
