Snacks for “on-the-go”

  • Organic Sausage Slices      sausage 
  • Coconut Yogurt with organic nuts, gluten free oats, and berries (no if low carb)  yogurt
  • Hard Boiled Organic Eggs– they’re portable!   eggBoil them the night before so you can grab one on the run
  • Organic Celery Sticks and almond butter     celery

Wash and dry organic celery stalks then slice into 4 in pieces Spread on organic raw nut butter (I use almond)

Top with chopped pieces of medjool dates

*I salt my nut butter with sea salt and occasionally sprinkle on Pyure brand stevia instead of the dates for a lower carb option. It gives it that yummy sweet/salty flavor.

  • Coconut Butter

Have a few tablespoons of coconut butter- it’s low carb and because it’s a medium chain fatty acid, it will give you energy
