TEN HEALTHY NUTRITIOUS ON-THE-GO SNACKS

 Dyan here (The Health Coach Is In) to tell you that there are really healthy snacks out there that you can eat on-the-go and guilt-free!

I'm talking about healthy snacks this week, because our modern lives get so busy that it makes it hard to find the time to make a healthy snack, but that doesn't mean you have to compromise your health by settling for chips and bear claws!

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

STABALIZE YOUR BLOOD SUGAR

KEEP YOUR MOOD STEADY AND YOUR MIND FOCUS SHARP

SO HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO "LOOK FOR" IN

A HEALTHY, ON-THE-GO SNACK?

  NUTS: An excellent source of 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 the store too long.

FRUIT: Packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. LOOK FOR: Organic fruit when you can, like apples packed with potassium or peaches loaded with Vit C.

YOGURT: High in protein and good source of healthy fats. LOOK FOR: Full or low-fat, organic yogurt or ones that do not contain artificial flavors or sweeteners, like corn syrup or fructose.

HARD BOILED EGG: Another high source of protein that will keep your blood sugars level. Boil them the night before and throw a couple in your bag. LOOK FOR: Pasture-raised. Check out my post: What The Cluck Are Pastured Eggs, Really?

PB&J SANDWICH: Also high in protein and stabilizes blood sugar. LOOK FOR: A brand that is organic or raw and free of any additives.

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 un-refined 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. LOOK FOR: Organic veggies where possible and cut them yourself to maintain their maximum nutrients instead of buying pre-cut slices in a bag.

SEEDS: Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are high sources of vegetable protein. LOOK FOR: Raw seeds wherever possible. You can find them in the bulk food section.
