I have to tell you about a secret treasure found at most natural supermarkets. These make vegetarian (and non-veg) snacking so easy. Of course I’m talking about the "bulk bins". What a great idea! Take a bunch of good snacks and bulk foods, throw them into a container and you can scoop your own. Some advantages are that very little packaging is used for these products, you get exactly the amount you need and it’s cheaper than pre-packaged stuff. Also, there are all kinds of great things there…like steel-cut oats, peanut butter filled pretzels, trailmix (a million varieties), nuts, yogurt covered pretzels, etc.. And…it’s actually pretty fun to scoop your own stuff. There’s only one rule; keep your hands out of the buckets! (although it is tempting to jump in and pretend like you’re in the chocolate river of Willy Wonka’s factory) So, the next time your at your local neighborhood natural grocery store, make sure to check it out.
