Paleo Snacks : Bananas

Photos by Jylare. If you saw last week’s FRYday post you heard the groundbreaking news that we’re all eating healthier lately. We know the benefits of making healthy choices, but our kids need a little bit more persuasion. Here are three awesome and healthy snacks that everyone can enjoy!

We couldn’t really think of any crazy superstitions we follow, except maybe not walking under ladders, or opening umbrellas indoors, but really that’s just common sense more than anything, right? But, any extra luck you can bring our way, we’ll take. So let’s eat some popcorn!   Here’s what you’ll need: Popcorn, rainbow sprinkles, skittles and chocolate gold coins.
