The one snack I always have in my purse . . .

Lunch Box On-the-Go!

Lunch Box On-the-Go!

Snack Idea: To-Go Veggies & Dip

Snack Idea: To-Go Veggies & Dip

Hello friends! As I’m going up and down the aisles of the grocery store trying find something that will fill me up, taste good and can be eaten in car (well, kinda)…

Here’s what I found…this is Taylor Farm’s veggies and dip.

The ranch dip is really tasty, not sure why, but it tastes better than other ranch dips I have tried, who knew?

Add a sandwich, wrap or whatever you like for lunch. Even a protein bar works great if you need a sweet treat, on-the-go, filling lunch. I found this item at Walmart in the produce section near the packages salads, fruits and vegetables.

Why do veggies taste better if I don’t have to make it or do all the work? 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

Just another option..by the way, these were the only veggies I got in for the day – because it was super-easy and I devoured the dip. Make the healthy choice the easy choice, and if it this works then great!

Enjoy!

Lunch Idea: Grilled Chicken + Thai ‘N’ Cashews Chopped Salad + Orange + Almonds + Dark Chocolate

Each and every bite of this lunch was so filling and satisfying. Throw together in seconds or pack for the next couple of days.

Here’s the products used…

The grilled chicken use from Target. I have shown the rotisserie chicken before but also love the grilled chicken! The chopped salad is from Aldi. The toppings and dressing totally ramp this up to Panera-stsndards. 😂

Oranges are in-season and taste amazing, but I still needed some chocolate. I find these at Aldi.

I hope you enjoy!
