Whether you have a busy day scheduled or are escorting your kids to their after-school activities, having healthy snacks stowed away is essential.
The world makes it too easy to drive into a fast food restaurant and grab a burger, but we know that such last-minute choices are not only detrimental to health, but can be insidious to one’s healthcare bill down the road.
Luckily, you have the option to store away a few snacks before you leave the house, and the 7 options listed below are just some of them:
1) Veggies & Nut Butter
It’s easier than ever to take a tubaware container of almond butter and some vegetables in a baggie to-go. Kids love ‘em, and you have a healthy treat that can ride alongside you during your errands.
2) Healthy, Home-made Lara Bars
Make your own LARA bars. They usually have 2-5 ingredients, are super simple, easy to make, and are much more nutritious than expensive health food store options.
3) Dehydrated Chips
Simply slice some zucchini, beet, or other root chips, coat with olive oil and sea salt, and dehydrate over night. Munch on them while cheering on your kids!
4) Nuts / Seeds / Trail Mix
You can easily make your own trail mix, or take a baggie of almonds / pistachios to-go when you know you’ll be away from home for a while.
5) Dehydrated Fruit
Again, make use of that dehydrator and dry some fruit overnight. While you sleep, snacks will prepare themselves.
6) Mason Jar Smoothies
If you have a fridge in your office or a cooler in your car, you can make a smoothie or two to-go and still keep them cold for later consumption. This trick is GREAT for those always on the go, but need option to re-fuel in a healthy way.
Nature’s most perfect snack – fruit! Bananas, apples, oranges, pears – they’re all so delicious and easy to take with you. Indulge in this sweet treat!
You can always plan a meal, as well, and have a cooler in your car so you won’t be tempted at a later time.
Fail to plan, and you plan to fail. Keep these snack ideas in mind next time you know you might be tempted while away from the house.
