Goddess takes lunch every day. I don't usually stress about what she is eating at lunch because she balances her loves of sweets by being generally a pretty healthy eater.
A typical lunch:
Salad (just lettuce with a salad dressing)
Cut Carrots (with a buffalo ranch for dipping, she likes it spicy)
Her snack used to be something chocolaty but this week she started taking Crispy Fruit from Crispy Green.
We received a box of snacks that we already went through and today I had to grab more because Goddess requested two of her favorite flavors. Can't say I blame her. They were delicious and I have my own favorite too.
My favorite was the tangerine! She never even got to try them because I ate the bag before she got home. It was like eating a sweet, crunchy, delicious tangerine.
Here are two of the others:
As you can see it looks just like the fruit and that is because it IS the fruit. All the moisture has been removed through a freeze dried process leaving just a crunchy, delicious snack that you can take anywhere. No need to keep it cool or worry about it being squished.
Great for lunch boxes, camping, hiking, boating, whatever!
We will be buying more. Thank goodness my Shoprite has them.
AMAZON has them too!
