If you’re new around here then you should know that veggies aren’t my favorite. I know… what kind of nutritionist am I?! Just because vegetables aren’t my favorite doesn’t mean that I don’t eat them daily. Some days I’ll make a salad with roasted veggies, but most days I’m sticking my veggies in my cacao cauli-oats or zucchini chocolate chip muffins with Perfect Snacks chocolate chip bites. (#ad) Perfect Snacks bites are perfect on their own (legit tastes like cookie dough AND have 20 superfoods in them, too) as a grab-n-go snack but I love throwing them on just about everything. Checkout Perfect Snack’s store locator to find these bites near you, or buy online at perfectsnacks.com.
