Let’s face it, snacking is how some of us make it through the day. And research shows that having three smaller meals a day and 2-3 small snacks is best for a healthy diet. I don’t know about you, but I am hungry throughout the day. So instead of reaching for an unhealthy convenience snack, try reaching for a healthy snack instead. Here’s 3 Healthy Snack options that are not only good for you, but will give you energy, too!
- Granola Bars – Healthy, good for you granola bars are always a good option when looking for a quick snack that will give you an energy boost. Make sure to chose one that has all natural ingredients and no added sugar. There’s several options at the store or you can chose to make your own granola bars at home and have control over the ingredients. Fill your granola bars with nuts, fruit and healthy grains.
2. Nuts – Nuts are really good for you, provide good energy and fill you up! There’s so many options – but raw nuts are best. A good nut to try is the NEW Emerald® Nuts in the green canister. You can take them on the go, pop in your car cupholder or even in your purse for a healthy snack anytime. Learn more about my favorite brand below!
3. Snack Bag – Pack a snack bag full of good for you items. From fresh fruit, to yogurt to cheese sticks. If you have healthy options with you, you are more likely to stay satisfied and not want to grab something less than ideal from a gas station or fast food restaurant.
Healthy snacking on the go doesn’t have to be complicated. With a little planning and some healthy food options on hand, you’re destined for success!
Emerald has a great on-the-go options that will help you keep with your healthy snacking goals. Their new green canister nuts are perfect for taking with you. I love to pop one into my cup holder in the car. It’s great because you can close the lid to keep them fresh and not spill out when you hit a bump or go around the corner. There’s several varieties to chose from too!
