The Snack Box

This week, I'm going to share a little something that has made my life way easier during the week. It's not particularly unique or clever, but has helped keep us choose healthy foods when we are feeling lazy, which is a lot of the time. It's The Snack Box.

I'm not really the pinterest-iest of people, but I do like efficiency. Making lunches is simpler when you have a lot of pre-packaged items to throw in a bag. It occurred to me that we could save money and time by packaging up our own snacks, thus ensuring they are as healthy as they are convenient. And so began my new Sunday tradition of assembling the snack box.

What's in it, you say? All kinds of stuff like the following week's bounty:
- 1/3 cup servings of pecans
- 1/4 cup sliced strawberry and raspberry
- 1 cup servings of carrot, sugar snap peas, and pepper sticks
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt servings with strawberries
- 30g cheddar cheese portions
- 1/2 cup servings of apple sauce
- ham slice/cheese roll ups with jalapeƱo havarti, marble cheddar, and provolone

That's just the beginning of endless options. Your imagination is the limit.

For 45 minutes of effort, we'll have easy access to fast food from the comfort of the fridge. I'm also seeing less food waste, as we are eating it well before it spoils. The little gems in the snack box also serve as a great fallback for nights when cooking isn't in the cards. Guilt free gems that is!
What ideas would work for your own snack box?
