Great Portable Healthy Snacks!
Summer is busy, I know! That is why it is super important to plan ahead and have things you can grab to eat on the go. You can carry many of these things in your bag or car at all times- preparation is the key to eating healthy! Also, don’t forget to soak up the sun and enjoy the flowers, nature is “food” for the soul!
Almonds/nuts – This is an amazing non-perishable source of protein and healthy fat.
Rice Cakes – Choose the Lundberg brand that are made from brown rice, my favorite are the caramel corn flavor. Put 2T almond butter between 2 rice cakes and make a “sandwich”. Then put in zip lock bag- you can break off pieces in the bag and eat easily at events or on the go.
Protein powder in a shaker cup – Just add water to your protein when you are ready to drink it and shake it up!
Green Protein Powder – You can find this at any health food store or whole foods. This is basically vegetables ground into a powder that you can drink! Mix with water in your shaker cup and enjoy!
Envelope packed salmon or tuna – This is an amazing invention to keep tuna/salmon fresh without the mess and hassle of the can. You can mix this up as tuna salad or just eat out of the envelope.
Dried fruit/fresh fruit – Fresh apples and oranges travel well, but most other fruit is best packed in the dried form. Look for dried fruit from the organic section of your grocery store. The more natural the better!
Fruit/Protein bars – These are always a good staple and easy to throw into a handbag or backpack when you are on the run. I love the more natural bars like Lara and Luna.
Meet Jerky - This is another great source of portable protein. If you have the option to get this at a whole foods or organic grocery section this will be much healthier. There are often lots of nitrates that go into preserving the meats.
