Hi, friend! I hope you are doing well! Can you believe it's so close to Christmas?! :) I know you may be traveling some this month for holiday getaways and time with your loved ones! So, I wanted to share with you some healthy snacks that you can eat on-the-go to stay feeling energized and nourish your body well even while on a trip! Sometimes travel and full itineraries can get pretty busy and leave you very tempted to settle for processed foods or drive-thru windows. Healthy snacks are really important for those in-between meal moments because they:
Sustain your energy from meal to meal
Stabilize your blood sugar
Keep your mood steady and focus sharp
6 Healthy Snacks to Pack with You:
Nuts + Seeds—an excellent source of vegetable protein:
Look for raw or dry roasted and stay away from nuts with additives like vegetable oil. Buying nuts or seeds in bulk and making little ¼ cup servings to take with you can save you some money in comparison to buying the pre-portioned packaged bags.
Fruit—packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants:
Look for organic fruit like bananas packed with potassium and oranges loaded with Vitamin C. Joey and I enjoy getting a weekly box of organic fruit and veggies discounted up to 40% delivered to our door from Misfits Market! Check them out here!
Yogurt—high in protein and good source of healthy fats:
Look for full-fat, organic yogurt or ones that do not contain artificial flavors or sweeteners like corn syrup. The lower the sugar, the better! I'm a fan of plant-based coconut and cashew yogurts too!
Hard boiled eggs—high source of protein and will keep your blood sugar level:
Boil them the night before and throw a couple in a little to-go container! I really like topping them with just salt and pepper! You could try out an all-purpose or everything bagel seasoning too!
Trail Mix—packed with a combo of proteins and natural sugars to increase your energy:
Look for a mix that doesn’t contain added vegetable oil and salt or buy a variety of nuts, seeds, raisins and cranberries at the health store to mix yourself. I'm currently loving these cranberries that I had to share!
Raw veggies—slices of raw veggies are loaded with vitamins and minerals:
Choose organic veggies where possible and cut the morning of to maintain their maximum nutrients instead of buying pre-cut slices in a bag. Carrots, cucumbers, and peppers are great options! Bonus tip: bring guac or hummus for dipping! For all of these suggestions, I do recommend organic whenever possible to ensure the best food quality available and to detox and protect your body from harmful chemicals and additives. I encourage you to pick 2 of these snack suggestions to get from the grocery store today and have ready to take with you! Go old-school if you need to with a lunch box + cold pack. Taking this extra step for your health will absolutely be worth it and you'll be so glad you did with feeling MUCH better! Remember, the little things are the big things! :)
