Tips for L.W.O.L. Snacks

  • You can boil vegetables and just add a simple seasoning overtop in order for it to have some flavour.
  • Some garlic, salt and pepper (and maybe a squirt of lemon juice) can add some great taste to your vegetables while maintaining the vegetable’s nutrients.
  • Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season, because they will be fresher and cheaper!
  • Sweet potatoes have great nutritional value and are tasty too!
  • Buy a bag of baby carrots when they are on sale, and have them as a snack! You can also do this with celery, broccoli, tomatoes, cauliflower as well as red, green and yellow peppers, to name a few.
  • Microwave popcorn is a great snack and sometimes is cheaper than buying chips.
  • Buy no-name chips and snacks. They are just as tasty as the name brand ones and cheaper as well.
  • Instead of buying baby carrots, buy a bag of large carrots, peel and cut them into sticks. They make a great snack when dipped into salad dressing.
  • Make your own trail mix by buying granola, nuts, dried fruit and what ever else you like from a bulk food store, rather than buying it pre-made in the grocery store.
