These days we’re all running around like headless chickens. Some of us hardly take the time to eat (not me of course; I always make time to eat, otherwise I turn into a werewolf and devour all in my path). I have even heard this crazy silly little rumour that snacks on the go are expensive.
I’m addicted to dates. ‘Nuff said.
Almonds, cashews, dried currents, raisins, … get creative with your trailmix.
My favourites: pink lady apple, banana, clementines. Check out what’s in season; right now the first of the summer berries are starting to appear, so make the most of seasonal fruits!
Jammy Oat Bars
These cost just about 50p per bar, and they are quite substantial, so you won’t be hungry. They’re made with oats and fruits to give you sweetness on top of energy, protein and all that good stuff.
Karena and Katrina’s Krazy Koconut Karob Bites
I make these with dairy-free chocolate chips as carob is only available in health stores, and that means it’s a bit more expensive. It costs around £7 to make the whole recipe (13 balls), so just about 50p per ball.
Your thrifty challenge this week is to take a good look at what your snacking on, and if you find it’s too expensive, try some of the snacks I’ve suggested. Let me know how you get on 🙂
