Whenever you’re thinking of on-the-go snacks, I always tell my clients to plan and meal prep. I get everyone is busy, but if you can stick to whole foods that are minimally processed, that is always a better option. Try to pair healthy fats and/or protein with a carbohydrate like fruits and veggies. Some examples are below:
- Raw mixed nuts or nut butter + Fruit (ie: berries, 1/2 banana, apple, pear, etc)
Try to stick with raw nuts to avoid any hydrogenated oils.
- Plain Greek Yogurt + Fruit (ie: berries, 1/2 banana, etc)
Sticking with plain greek yogurt vs flavored keeps the added sugars down.
- Veggies + Hummus
Dipping veggies in hummus vs dressing is an easy way to add protein.
- Plant Protein Shake
Protein shakes are a great way to add lean protein to your diet when you’re on the go.
