Posts Tagged ‘oven dried blueberry recipe’

I was just emailing with a friend this morning that I am travelling like a mad man this month! Between my family coming to New York for the Children’s ENK Trade Show and going to Africa next Friday, I feel like I am always on the go…and well, hungry without anything yummy to snack on. It is hard to stay healthy when you are a mom on the go, especially with kids or taking care of kids. Here are 2 great no brainer healthy snack recipes that I love to whip up and have on hand in 5 minutes!
