Hope you got inspired by some of these! If you make any make sure to #coolbeansnutrition on instagram so I can check it out! It is my personal opinion that the more appealing the food, the more likely you are to want to eat it. If you take the time to make yourself a pretty fruit or veggie tray you are more likely to enjoy them instead of eating raw carrots out of a bag and then you will just end up heading for the chips instead.

Just remember - the best snacks are those that you know all of the ingredients!
