I am always looking to take care of myself better. In my mind, if you feel good it’s worth so much more than just saving money alone.
But if there are ways that I can not break that bank and do things that are better for me, I am a happy camper.
One of the ways I like to do this is to improve my snacks. Snacking usually happens several times a day so making sure that the ones I grab are smarter choices is high on my priority list.
I have compiled a list of 10 yummy, better for you snacks that also will not bust your budget.
