When it comes to packing healthful snacks, there’s no doubt it take a little more planning and preparation to make that healthy choice the easy choice.
But I have super secret that’s going to make pre-portioning those delicious dips & spreads so much easier. My secret is... a cookie scoop! (Like this one.)
A tablespoon cookie scoop is perfect for portioning out stubborn spreads like hummus, nut butters, and other dips. Using a cookie scoop not only makes packing snacks quicker, but also helps you be more mindful of the quantity you’re enjoying at snack time. Because let’s be honest, we’ve all “accidentally” eaten half a tub of hummus at snack time before. (And for hummus, half a tub could mean 350+ calories versus just 70 calories for a 2 tablespoon serving.)
Simply store your dips & spreads in a tiny tupperware and you’re ready to rock snack time!
