In our fast-paced culture and with our busy lives, it’s helpful to have healthy snacks on hand at all times in case you find yourself in a pinch. Though you can find various forms of snacks or treats at most gas stations and grocery stores, they are not all created equal and eating many of them may leave you feeling worse than you did before.
As a Health Coach, I’m often asked for recommendations of healthy snacks for when we are on the go. Surprisingly, even health food stores have very few snack bar options that aren’t loaded with added sugar, gluten, soy, and other preservatives.
Here are a few of my recommendations:
#1 Make your own trail mix
Make your own trail mix at home and carry some in your bag, purse or car at all times. I order all of the below ingredients in bulk from Amazon Prime. Mix the below together in a bowl and divide the portions into baggies and then you are good to go!
Angela’s Homemade Trail Mix
1 cup Raw, Organic Cashews
1 cup Raw, Organic Almonds
¼ cup Raw, Organic Sunflower Seeds
¼ cup Raw, Organic Goji Berries
#2 Raw Crunch Bar- Blueberry + Lemon
This bar is handmade, gluten-free and only has 5g of sugar. My favorite flavor is the Blueberry + Lemon and I order them from Amazon Prime. This bar is pictured above.
#3 Artisana Organics Raw Almond Butter
I’ve tried all of the raw almond butters on the market and this one wins in taste. I order it here from Amazon Prime. This almond butter is great on celery or with carrot sticks, but if you are on the go, buy the travel size packets (as pictured above) and eat them as is. One note of caution: if you do have a sluggish digestive system, too much nut butter does not help, so remember: all things in moderation.
Health Coach Pep Talk
Remember, these are considered treats and I do not eat them every day or in large quantities at a time. They are not meant to replace whole foods or home-cooked meals, but are very helpful options for you when there are limited healthy options around. If you grab one of these instead of a snickers bar when you are on the go then I’d call that a win! You got this!
