Quick and tasty homemade snack bars you will love.
 
Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Snack Bars

http://www.eco-novice.com/2014/04/whole-grain-chocolate-chip-snack-bars.html

A new healthy homemade snack for your arsenal. Made with white whole wheat, rolled oats, nuts, and sweetened with honey. Kid-friendly, portable and freezable.  If you substitute raisins for chocolate chips, they are free of refined sugar. With chocolate chips, these pass for dessert at my house.   #healthyrecipes   #kidfriendlyrecipes  

What is your favorite homemade snack?

Too many people think that baking soda can cure their hair and make it healthier. What a misconception! Read how baking soda destroyed my hair and see the tests I did. http://blog.kanelstrand.com/2014/01/baking-soda-destroyed-my-hair.html There are other natural alternatives which you can use!

Hello all,
I have a question for you. How do you keep the readership of your blogs? How do you make sure you get a lot of interaction? Posting quality content is obvious. What next?

Hi +Sonya Kanelstrand   Honestly, while I agree with all the suggestions given here, I'd also say be careful to not spread yourself too thin unless you hire a virtual assistant.  Find a sensible balance that is doable or you will soon find that the candy store of doing/buying/joining everything  will lead you to crash and burn city.
