Read some reviews:

“This book has been a real lifesaver!”

Chic Mummy

“Katie has a wonderful focus on stewarding our time and energy well, and she’s always looking for ways to make things more efficient and streamlined in the kitchen. For anyone still learning and transitioning to more real and traditional foods, Katie makes it all so simple and basic.She offers lots of explanations and info, in a completely down-to-earth way.”
–Stephanie Langford, editor of Keeper of the Home and author of
Real Food on a Real Budget

 

I’ve piddle around and tried a few of the recipes from Healthy Snacks to Go and I have to say, I had rave reviews from family and friends this weekend on our camping trip when I went all out on a bunch of recipes. There were three adults camping (one of whom is my husband, who typically grazes all day like a horse).We made crispy chickpeas, Kid-friendly beef, Power bars, Grain-free cardamom spiced granola, KS healthy granola bars and all of the recipes were a success. All of them will be made again, everybody was pleased, happy, and excited about all of the healthy and nourishing food/snacks, thanks to you.

My friend will probably be purchasing this e-book and some others I’m sure, since she helped me prepare everything and saw how easy it was, how inexpensive it was overall. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

“Katie’s writing style is both engaging and thorough. Her recipes are interesting enough for the accomplished cook yet explained in such a way that they feel approachable for those of us who routinely contemplate purchasing Cooking for Dummies.”
–Anne McClure of Catholic Mommy Brain, in a review at Catholic Mom

 

“I can tell you my proudest achievement to date. I am just starting our journey to ‘real food’. Last weekend I made homemade fruit roll ups from my own homemade applesauce! My husband was sooo impressed! Your HEALTHY SNACKS TO GO ebook is fabulous!”
–Jen (a reader)

In a time when recipes are abundant online, why would you pay a little extra money to purchase an e-book like this? Here’s why:

“There are so many great recipes included, all in one handy little book.No digging through sites, reading through comments for variations, and printing out page after page of feedback and adjustments. Katie has thoroughly vetted, worked through, and perfected each recipe she shares.”
(See the rest from Megan of SortaCrunchy)

 

“Katie’s recipes are very, very easy to understand even for someone like me who is phobic about baking…the Wheat Thins are labeled “hard.” But honestly, if I could make them, how hard can they actually be???”
–Beth from Fake Plastic Fish

I worked with a team of testers on Crispy Roasted Chickpeas together, with great feedback:

“My 15 month old son who’s allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, and nuts LOVES these! …It’s the first snack I’ve found that I can make at home and take with us to the store! I can keep fruit and frozen peas ready at home but they’re quite messy when we’re out. We’ve been eating rice chex but I didn’t like giving them to him.

I’ll send my feedback on everything later but had to say thank you thank you thank you!!!”
–M, from her phone

“I’ve made crispy chickpeas in the past…However, I had more success on your original recipe.”
–A

 

How About Food Sensitivities?

It seems like more and more people are having to cut foods from their diets these days. Healthy Snacks to Go has always had helpful icons so you can see at a glance whether a recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free or grain-free. Here’s the breakdown, out of 45 recipes:

    • grain-free: 33
    • gluten-free: 38
    • dairy-free: all but 4 have CF (casein free) adaptations
    • nut-free: 24 have the option
    • egg-free: 37, plus at least 3 of the remaining ones, maybe 5, would work great with the flax/water egg substitute
    • I even added a new section on how to substitute coconut, if you’re one of those people who just don’t like it. Winking smile

Please see the satisfaction guarantee below if you have food sensitivities and are worried you won’t get your investment’s worth out of Healthy Snacks to Go…

My favorite gluten-free blogger reviewed the book here: “Fantastic.”

What Changed in the Second Edition?

The first edition of Healthy Snacks to Go had been helping people cope with “running out the door hungry” syndrome for nearly two years, and it was time to upgrade the system.

Since the first edition of this book, which was my first eBook, I’d spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I had cooked many meals and made many snacks.

Life had also changed a lot: we added a child, discovered a gluten sensitivity, gone grain-free for a few periods of time, and moved to a new house.

My oldest child was now in school all day, so I had first-hand knowledge of the drudgery of packing lunches and managing snacks on the go daily. (For the record, I don’t like it. It’s a pain. But it did make me realize even more the value of a book of snacks!)

I’d also taken more steps along the real food journey: I have a grain mill and a dehydrator, I’ve delved into natural sweeteners, and we’ve cut even more processed foods from our cupboards.

I regularly make power bars, granola, crackers, muffins, and a whole bunch of other recipes from this book. I have food-stained printed copies of certain favorites and often open it on the computer for others.

The updates and new recipes in the second edition reflect all of this: more grain-free options (9 of the 11 new recipes), much less white sugar, dehydrator variations on some old favorites, and some handy fixes to problems with the old recipes. Don’t worry though – this new edition and nearly all the recipes it contains are still very applicable for a real food rookie or novice chef.

I’ve also started using recipe testers to make sure everything makes sense. They improve the format and final results SO much! When I asked readers to test the new granola bar improvements, I had no shortage of volunteers. We tweaked the instructions a bit, but the recipe held fast…literally. See what they have to say:

“My husband said they look just like the ones from the store, but taste better.” –V

“Perfect! Not crumbly at all. This will be my go-to recipe for making granola bars for on-the-go snacks.” –N

Spend Money to Save Money

Some people might wonder why you’d bother to pay for recipes when there are so many free on the Internet.

I’d sure like to think that I can save you money. In fact, if you make just a few batches of the famous power bars, packed with expensive ingredients like dried fruit and nuts, you’ll save the purchase price of the book vs. buying individual Larabars. A couple batches of homemade Wheat Thins, and you’ll not only have a much healthier end product, but a few bucks still in your pocket as well.

I won’t hide the fact that about a third of the recipes are posted right here at Kitchen Stewardship, including the FREE download of the No-Bake (Soaked) Granola Bars, also revised and updated. Another handful have been adapted from other recipes on the web. You could trawl the Internet to find good snacks…but they won’t be as thorough or easily accessible and printable as an eBook. I take great pains to make my eBooks user-friendly and practical, even putting all the photos on three pages so you can save printer ink.
