We love snacking almost as much as we love the ladies of Prescribe Nutrition! And since the knowledge they shared in our collaborative Pantry Must Haves post was such a smashing success, we knew that we had to have a Part Two! Whenever we organize a kitchen or pantry space, we always make it a priority to create a Practically Perfect "grab + go" snack station. The reality is that most of us are often on-the-go, and we have to fuel our bodies appropriately. We'll let the expert, Katie, take it from here...

We’re back! Round two of our “must haves” - and this time we’re talking convenience snacks. Because, let’s get real, life… busy. As nutritionists, we get this question a lot. And that’s an understatement. The good news is that Part One sets you right up for having these convenience snacks ready for action. Pretty slick, right?
Now that your pantry is stocked with mixed nuts, cacao nibs and your favorite dried fruits, you have homemade mix at your fingertips!
Keeping with the protein theme, eggs are a great fat + protein source that support balanced blood sugar, and balanced blood sugar = stable moods, feeling satiated, and having energy.
Fruits and Veggies:
We wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t reiterate the power of the most whole, real forms of energy. Our best advice is to try to reach for veggies first, fruits second. Veggies have more fiber and less carbohydrates… AKA, they will keep you fuller, longer.
The key to eating is fueling your body. Fuel that balances your blood sugar, keeps you satiated longer and gives you energy. If you have more questions or want some additional support, just let us know. We’re here for you: Prescribe Nutrition!
