Snacks

I’m always griping about snacks, and usually i’m not a snacker (but i’m definitely a griper…) but when the hunger hits me, it hits hard. You can definitely put me in the” one of those people who gets hangry” boxes. So, in my state of being happy and full, I made a resolution to end the hanger! This means more frequent, yet small, meals throughout the day. Obviously it’s easy to grab a bag of chips and munch until sick, but i’m going to stick with the healthy way, and make more whole veggie, more healthy, more nutritious snacks without skimping on flavor.

Here is my first attempt at a “snack”. Sweet potato fries with a healthy & spicy ranch dipping sauce.
