Keeping healthy and quick snack options in the kitchen is a priority for me.
Our family has been visiting the local farmers’ market ever since our kids were in strollers. Our two children are teenagers now and our schedule is busier than ever. Keeping healthy and quick snack options in the kitchen is a priority for me. Those visits to the farmers’ markets are still something we look forward to doing together. My website, www.inspiredbytheseasons.com will help your family put together simple snacks and meals with seasonal and fresh ingredients no matter what the pace of your household.
