Eating on the GO

October 26, 2016

Just because you forgot your healthy snack or lunch doesn't mean you have to go down the road to the closest fast food restaurant and binge on a cheeseburger and fries. More and more gas stations, connivence stores, coffee shops and grocery stores have healthy pre-packaged snacks and lunch options. It's all about thinking ahead on what you would do in that situation!


I know it is hard to believe but there are some healthy snacks at most gas stations:

  • Low Sugar Protein Bars (aim for under 10grams of sugar and more than 15grams of protein)

  • Fresh Fruit

  • Greek Yogurt

  • String Cheese

  • Unsalted Nuts

  • Low Sodium Jerky and Turkey Jerky




Another quick stop that has plenty of options is a grocery store:

  • Salad Bar or Pre-made Salads

  • Fresh Fruit

  • Yogurt

  • Hard Boiled Eggs

  • Crackers and Lunch Meat




If you plan on stopping for a mid day pick me up at your local coffee shop you could easily pick up a snack:

  • Yogurt

  • Egg Sandwiches

  • Oatmeal

  • Protein Packs

  • Hummus and Crackers

  • Nuts and Seeds




Finally connivence stores like Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid have good for you options as well:

  • Unsalted Nuts

  • Yogurt

  • Cheese

  • Small boxes of crackers

  • Low Sugar Protein Bars


Just be sure to pair the snack of your choice with water to stay hydrated.

 Stocking your car glove box, backpack, locker and desk or work fridge with some healthy snacks is also a great idea!  That way when you are at work, school or out and about in town you won't find yourself in a desperate situation.  


If you have any favorite go to snacks from local stores please feel free to share!
