By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

If you’re on the go and need a healthy snack, make your own muesli/granola bars for yourself and your family! These aren’t loaded with extra additives that many granola bars on grocery store shelves contain, but they are loaded with natural fiber and protein to keep you full and satisfied. And you know exactly what’s going into them — no weird ingredients! You can use any dried fruit, nuts and seeds that you like so feel free to get creative.
