Health-nut snacks

When you are traveling, there is a serious need for some healthy snack alternatives out there.  You do get a few pit-stops that can fill you up until the next meal, but most of the time they are loaded with extra sugar and preservatives. These healthy-on-the-go snacks are perfect for those long hours away from home.

We’re off traveling again and this time to Italy. I tend to snack a lot, out of habit I guess. i struggle to find the most healthy alternatives out there, that is why I like to plan ahead and make some snacks to keep by hand when the hunger tends to strike. These two healthy snacks are very easy to make and also easily devoured. Get the recipe below!
