Meal Prep Series - Snack Edition

For this week I wanted to show a series of snacks to add to your meal prepping each week. I mean, does anyone actually eat just three meals? Probably not (I sure don't ...), so snacks play a key role in keeping energy levels high during the day, and keep the metabolism going.

The 3pm crash during the day is real, and you want to avoid that by having a little pick-me-up prepped. Whether its a pre-workout snack or just to keep you going, its important to have something prepared (it will also save you a lot of $$$).
