Healthy Snacks on the GO

January 23, 2017

 

On the go and in a pinch yes bars are a great grab, but I always stress real food because it will keep you more satisfied longer than convenient foods. But if you are in a pinch and rely on them read the labels, aim low in sodium and sugar, high in protein! 

 

Here are some of my favorite go to's 

 

Snack Ideas When Traveling – 

-      Low Sodium Jerky

-      Unsweetened Applesauce

-      Plain Oatmeal Packets

-      Single Serve Cottage Cheese Cups

-      Hard Boiled Eggs

-      Single Serve Peanut/Almond Butter Packets

-      Fresh Produce

-      Carton of Chocolate Milk
