Homemade Snack Mix

I’ve got an easy and convenient Homemade Snack Mix that is sure to please everyone!  #SnacktoSchool #LoveYourRaisins #CleverGirls

Homemade Snack Mix

Connor and I both come home from school hungry so I’m always looking for healthy snack ideas that will hold us over until dinner.  This snack mix is super easy to throw together and tastes great.  Plus, it’s healthier than other snacks and makes a great snack for homework time.

Are you looking for a healthier after school snack?  This snack mix includes clean products which means everything in the mix contains ingredients that I can read and understand.  My favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty.  The addition of California raisins add just the right amount of sweetness and I love that they are all-natural, dried-by-the-sun fruit you can feel good about eating.

Did you know that raisins have ZERO fat, no cholesterol and no added sugar?  Convenient and portable, California Raisins are a great choice for wholesome, healthy, on-the-go snacking.  And they are a great value, too!  We love adding raisins to muffins, cookies, oatmeal – and, of course, this snack mix.

Homemade Snack Mix

And, the best part – Connor can help me make this homemade snack mix!

Homemade Pantry Items You Can Easily Make Yourself

I shared yesterday that we are starting to eat more clean.  I read the labels of all the stuff in our pantry and if there was an ingredient that I couldn’t pronounce or recognize, it was donated or given to a neighbor.  And now I’ve put together a list of 10 Homemade Pantry Items that you can easily make yourself.  I like that most of these recipes make a lot so you won’t need to make them often and they don’t require a ton of ingredients.

10 homemade pantry items

I had no idea that there were so many clean recipes for pantry items that I buy all the time.

What pantry isn’t complete without chips.  These Zucchini Chips by Table for Two sound amazing!

Clean Eating Sweet Potato Chips

And I definitely need to make these Homemade Sweet Potato Chips by Sugar Baking Blog.  I’m so happy that I don’t have to give up snacking on chips.

Now I just need a clean brownie mix or clean cake mix and my pantry will be fully stocked.

Conduit and Pipe Curtain Rod inspired by Pinterest

Conduit and Pipe Curtain Rod

We have a laundry closet upstairs in our hallway and while I love having the washer and dryer upstairs, it’s kind of an eye sore.  We used to have closet doors there so I could just shut them and pretend they weren’t there.  Then we got front loaders and I could no longer shut the […]
