Organized Snacks

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

While browsing on Real Simple the other day, I noticed these snack suggestions for organizing your pantry. I love this idea of pre portioned snacks, and can only imagine how great it would be for kids at home or on the go.

In fact, this whole idea of pre packaging I’m kinda loving (Em is already a pro), not only would it be a major help in the portion control of not-so-good-for-you-foods, but also encourage the healthier options if they are already pre washed + chopped…this may have just changed my life, I’ll let  you know!
