If you're always on the go traveling, driving long hours, or just working long shifts– what snacks do you pack?
Being paleo, I have learned to always be prepared with snacks even if I'm just running around town.
When I travel, I make sure I have enough snacks to keep my stomach happy until I reach my destination (airplane food, no bueno)!
Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite healthy snacks for on-the-go!
1. Banana, sliced fruit & veggies
You can never go wrong with fruit and veggies. 1) they're loaded with vitamins, 2) they have tons of fiber to keep you stimulated and your digestive system healthy, and 3) they're naturally low in calories.
Healthy Trick: If you want more protein, grab a Artisana Raw Almond Butter packet to squeeze on your sliced apples or carrots! Yum!
2. Trail Mix
I love this Raw Super food Trail Mix because it has two of the most healthiest nuts, cashews and Brazil nuts! It also has raw cacao nibs (rich in antioxidants), goji berries, succulent figs, and sweet coconut shavings. Mmmm!
All nuts contain fiber which will help keep you feeling full, so you eat less. You can find trail mix almost anywhere, but always look at the ingredients to make sure there's no added oils and/or sugar, or has tons of sodium.
3. Organic Bars
Bars are my life savers! I don't think I leave the house without throwing one in my purse.
My favorite brands are Clif's KIT'S Organic bars and Lara Bars because there's no added sugar (sweetened with only dates and fruit) and they're made with organic and GMO free ingredients. (like my new favorite, Chocolate Almond Coconut, has only dates, almonds, unsweetened chocolate, coconut shavings, coconut oil, and sea salt. It tastes like a brownie!)
4. Super Cookies
If you have a lot of food allergies, Super Cookies are the perfect snack because they're gluten free, wheat free, and nut free! (these are also great snacks for toddlers too!) Check out all their yummy flavors HERE! I like these for when I want a little "crunch", and for when I have a sweet tooth. :)
5. Naked Coconut Water
Coconut water is extremely hydrating making it a great alternative to H2O– especially for those of you who are moving all day, or hit the gym for long hours! Other boosts: tons of potassium (more than a banana), calcium, magnesium, and other electrolytes. Try Naked Coconut water!
