Anyone out there remember GORP? Good ole raisins and peanuts? My sister insists is "Gobs" of raisins and peanuts but that just sounds weird.

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I’ve got a thing for energy bites.

I keep them in the fridge so I’ve got a quick, energizing snack ready to grab ‘n go when I’m on the run.

If you love peanut butter and crave healthy-ish snacks, this bite is for you. It’s filled with wholesome ingredients and the peanut b...

You might not know this about me, but I have a bit of a thing for snacks.

I don't go anywhere without a snack. In fact, if you opened up my purse right now, I'm pretty sure you'd see a container of almonds and probably an energy bar. And I most definitely have a snack stash in the car for emergencies. Like when you get stuck in traffic and you missed lunch. You know, snacking emergencies.
