Snacks

I find snacks can be very problematic for many people.  I like to have some go-to-snacks stashed in my bag – often when I want them, it is for an energy boost.  If I’m prepared it’s fine, but & I’ll be honest – bad choices can be made if I’m “hangry”. It doesn’t have toContinue reading “Snacks”
