Guest Post: Amy Adams - Recipes

With two kids and an Ironman in the house, we do our fair share of eating. We are on the go very often and I've found it's really challenging to find unprocessed/easy snacks to take with us (besides fruits & veggies). So I took the matter into my own hands and found a lot of great snacks that are easy to prepare (kids love to help), taste good and are healthy.

Here are some of our favorites (click on the links for full recipes):

We love to throw this on our yogurt, oatmeal or just straight from a baggy.

James likes to take these out on his rides and the kids love them for school snacks

We eat 90% GF, so these are a great alternative for a cracker. They are great plain or dip them into hummus, which the kids love. I've found they taste best fresh. Once they dry out they can become pretty chewy and not as good.

These have become a household favorite. Highly recommended!

These are not gluten free but very tasty and the kids love the shapes :)

These are so easy to make and everyone really likes them. We do a lot of raw cookies around here, just Google or look on Pinterest and you can find a lot of recipes.

These are just a few recipes - I always like to add my own flair to each of them so don't be afraid to add more or less of something. We also get a lot of our snacks from Feed Zone Portables. The kids love the peanut butter and jelly rice cakes and many others. Each week when we do our food planning for the week we always pick out a different recipe from the book so we have something different on hand all week.
