Why Homemade?

Finding whole foods in grocery stores has become more and more difficult with packages often including ingredients that are not only harmful to our bodies but also unidentifiable by the average person. Every single recipe in this book was created with your favorite products in mind as well as your health. To make these as close as possible to the store-brand versions, each recipe was designed and tested with whole food ingredients until it captured as much of those unmistakable flavors as possible. And with 454 recipe testers from around the world, you can be assured that each and every recipe has been tested numerous times over to ensure it’s as easy and delicious as it promises to be.

Since you see exactly what goes into each recipe, you’ll know that each meal is 100 percent real—no high fructose corn syrup, additives, preservatives, GMOs, or fifty-letter chemicals.

Snack foods can often be the bane of a person’s existence, especially when trying to eat healthy foods bursting with wholesome, all-natural ingredients. Sure, you can munch on carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes, and cheese, but those foods don’t always satisfy the cravings that we get. The following recipes will give you the tastes you love without sacrificing your nutrition or filling your body with processed ingredients. They’re also great if you’re on the road a lot. Whether you’re just out running errands or crossing the country on a road trip, these delicious snacks will give you the energy to make it through your day.
