Healthy Snacks and Smoothie Recipes

Anyone that knows me knows that I cannot leave the house without snacks. You’ll never catch me without something to hold me over in my bag or clutch, no matter how small! I was very happy to see that one of my favorite online stores, Backcountry.com carries some of my favorite healthy snacks and protein powders!  I am even sharing my protein smoothie recipes and 15% off code below!

My favorite snack brand lately is Kate’s Real Food Bars which I discovered on my trip to Indiana earlier this year to go offroading at the Badlands Off-Road Park. (See the full blog post on that experience and what I packed here!) I am officially on my third order from Backcountry.com to order these bars! May I suggest the peanut butter & hemp and peanut butter dark chocolate flavors!

Another healthy food option I was pleased to find on Backcountry.com is Vega protein powders. They are plant-based, gluten-free, and come in a variety of flavors. I made a protein fruit smoothie every morning. They are packed with flavor and nutrition. The recipes I am sharing in today’s blog post have been perfected over the years and I am delighted to share them.
