Simple Mills Snacking

Simple Mills Snacking

I have a knack for snacking. S-knacking, if you will. One of my fondest childhood memories was coming home from school and building a leaning tower of peanut butter crackers Pisa via Saltines and Jiffy. And pairing that with re-runs of Reba. Re(ba)-runs if you will. I’d like to think my taste preferences have elevated a bit with sophistication, color, and nutrients since then. Click below to see how I make a pact with my snack attacks.

My general philosophy on snacking is pretty Simple. I like to include at least two foods groups with my snacks, preferably three: a healthy fat, fruit, vegetables, and protein. Simple Mills crackers cover two of these bases already: healthy fats and protein – they’re made of  almonds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. They’re also grain-free, gluten-free, soy-free and and paleo-friendly.  I’ve graduated from the questionable Saltines and peanut butter, and instead stack my snacks high with other nutrient dense foods, like below.

Here’s how I get #BackToSimple with #HealthySnacking:

  • fine ground sea salt crackers with banana and peanut butter
  • fine ground sea salt crackers with peaches and coconut butter
  • rosemary and sea salt crackers with mashed avocado and plum
  • rosemary and sea salt crackers with beet hummus and avocado

And look, I can still make leaning tower of PBisa’s.
