Dorm Room Snacks ~

Trail Mix

Trail mix is so easy to throw in your bag on your way to class! Make sure you’re buying mixes without lots of 🍫 or added sugars…stick to dry roasted nuts and unsweetened dried fruit! We also love to make our own trail mix with 1/3 cup of nuts, unsweetened coconut shavings, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Pre-portion your mix into little Ziploc bags to grab and go!

Tone It Up Protein Bites

We made Tone It Up Protein Bites for babes just like you ~ busy, badass, and on the go! They deliver 9 grams of clean, energizing protein per serving and they’re so delicious. Plus, they’re individually wrapped ~ perfect to throw in your purse, gym bag, or school bag.

Apple and Peanut Butter

This sweet and savory combo guarantees long-lasting energy. The protein from peanut butter and the natural sugars from apple will balance your blood glucose levels to give you a mid-day energy boost!
