    Thank you for the suggestions friend!
    All the pre-packaged “healthy” vegan snacks sold are nutritionally void and over-packaged. Plus, there is almost no nutritional value to “healthy” snacks. The very popular “Veggie Straws” are potato starch with seasoning. It’s just another scam from a corporation that puts profits above human health and well being.
