We all have busy lives and are constantly on the go! It’s important for our health, energy level, and mood to reach for healthy snacks when fighting hunger. We have realized that a snickers bar might curb your hunger for a bit but the over processed sugar bar is sure to make you crash once the sugar rush comes to an end. Sometimes the healthy choice is not the most convenient if you are on the go, but with a little planning you can have an easy healthy snack on hand any time.
First there are several boxes to check when considering a healthy snack. The first is to make sure that you are not consuming sugar laden items. Not only does sugar make us have a feel sluggish after the crash, it provides zero nutritional value. Second, grab a snack high in protein and fiber. Protein is essential to help build, repair, and oxygenate our bodies. Fiber will satisfy your hunger until your next meal. Lastly, make sure that you are reading the ingredients and that they are “real food”.
