Ingredient Household Snacks

Did anyone else grow up in an "Ingredient Household"? 😂🙋🏼‍♀️ I did for sure! And have since implemented it in my own home with my own family, whether they like it or not! 😆 For those of you that don't know what an "Ingredient Household" is, it's a home that has little to no ready-to-eat foods or snacks, just the ingredients to make food. 😉😬

Some snacks I lived off of growing up in an “Ingredient Household” were: all the toast combos (pb toast, cinnamon toast, honey toast, jam toast), cereal, yogurt with toppings, wraps, crackers with cheese, and sandwiches! I’m leveling up these traditional snack ideas with a healthier, protein-packed, CSE spin for ya!
