August 2022 Newsletter: 10 Healthy On-The-Go Snacks

Break the sugar habit. There are healthy snacks out there that you can eat on-the-go and guilt-free!

Why would you want healthy on-the-go snacks?

Choosing healthy snacks today is important in our modern lives because we get so busy, and that makes it hard to find time to suss out a healthy snack. But that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your health by settling for Twinkies!

So, what’s important about healthy snacking?

Healthy snacks are important for those in-between meal moments because they:

  • Sustain your energy from meal to meal
  • Stabilize your blood sugar
  • Keep your mood steady and focus sharp

What do you want to look for in healthy, on-the-go snacks?

  • Nuts—an excellent source of high protein:

Look for raw or dry roasted and stay away from nuts with additives like vegetable oil and salt as these can turn rancid if they sit in a bag in a store.

  • Fruit—packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants:

Look for organic fruit like bananas packed with potassium and oranges loaded with Vitamin C

  • Yogurt—high in protein and good source of healthy fats:

Look for full-fat, organic yogurt or ones that do not contain artificial flavors or sweeteners like corn syrup.

  • Hard-boiled eggs—high source of protein and will keep your blood sugars level:

Boil them the night before and throw a couple in your bag.

  • Peanut butter sandwich—also high in protein and stabilizes blood sugar:

Look for a brand that is organic or free of additives.

  • Energy bars—a much healthier and nutritious alternative to chocolate bars:

Avoid brands with soy protein isolate and look for brands that contain over 10 grams of whey protein, hemp protein or pea protein.

  • Dark chocolate—high in natural caffeine that can give you that energy boost:

Look for brands that list cacao as the first ingredient not sugar.

  • Trail Mix—packed with a combo of proteins and sugars to increase your energy:

Look for a mix that doesn’t contain added vegetable oil and salt or buy a variety of nuts, seeds, raisins and cranberries at the health store to mix yourself.

  • Raw veggies—slices of raw veggies are loaded with vitamins and minerals:

Choose organic veggies where possible and cut the morning of to maintain their maximum nutrients instead of buying pre-cut slices in a bag.

  • Seeds—pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are high in sources of vegetable protein:

Look for raw seeds wherever possible. You can find them in the bulk food section.
