Snacking On The Run
Making snacks doesn't have to make you late. Plan ahead and prep a week's worth of snacks in advance!

Want a snack you and the kids will both want to munch? Hit the market, then wash, chop and load containers with individual portions of fresh vegetables to last all week. Like to dip? Grab a container of hummus and distribute it into small containers or buy single-serve packs and toss them in with your vegetables.

Making your own fruit leather might sound intimidating, but it's actually pretty easy. Just do a quick blender puree of whichever in-season fruit you fancy, spread it on a Silpat and then bake it for 3 hours. Cut it into strips, roll it in parchment paper, tie it with twine and there you have it — homemade fruit roll-ups (without all the added sugar)! Get full instructions on the Weelicious blog.
Banana oatmeal muffins

These healthy banana oatmeal muffins are made with plain non-fat Greek yogurt, so they're packed with protein. Plus, this recipe lets you mix everything in a blender, so you won't end up with a sink full of bowls and spoons to wash. Bake a batch, then store it in plastic lidded containers for easy snacking. If you want to make a double batch, store it in the freezer. Get the recipe at Fun Finds For Mom.
