Sam and I LOVE to snack. We recently just organized our entire pantry, which made me realize just how many snacks we have. Side note: if you haven’t organized your pantry before, it’s a must. It helps keep track of everything you have and what you need more of, and it makes grocery shopping so much easier because you can check your inventory. We worked with Reset Your Nest to organize our pantry, and I can’t believe we went this long without doing that. You don’t realize just how much trash you accumulate as well as expired food items. If you’re looking to organize your pantry on your own, Amazon and The Container Store have great options for storage containers. Depending on how organized you want to get, start by taking everything out of the packaging and put it in clear containers with labels. This helps keep your food fresh longer and lets you know exactly what you have. There’s nothing like walking into a pantry and being able to see all the incredible snacks you have.
Speaking of snacks, I wanted to share 3 of our absolute favorite snacks we always have stocked. The first is Verb Bars. If you haven’t tried a Verb Bar yet, you’re missing out. They are gluten-free and vegan and made with organic green tea to provide long-lasting energy. I don’t like coffee, so I love how these bars give me energy throughout the day but don’t leave me jittery. They are only 90 calories and taste sooo delicious. I have them stocked in our pantry, but I also keep some in my car and purse because they are perfect for on the go. Newborn life is tough, and sometimes you need just a quick energy boost to get you through the day, which is why I love these bars so much.
Another snack we keep stocked is popcorn. There’s nothing like a warm bowl of popcorn when you’re sitting on the couch watching The Bachelor. We love Pop Zero popcorn. They come in so many different flavors, and it’s filled with amazing ingredients. Pro tip: sprinkle some chocolate chips on top of your popcorn and zap it in the microwave for a minute. It’s life-changing!
Last but certainly not least, we love our jerky. This is a staple in our pantry! It’s the perfect snack after a workout or when I don’t have time to make a meal but need something fast that fills me up and has protein. Whenever we drive to our cabin, we always make sure to grab a bag for the road!
