It seems like every weekend I’m traveling or running all over the city. I’m known for keeping multiple snacks on me at all times. I’m always worried I’ll be stuck somewhere with no healthy snack options! While it is possible to pick up good options on the run, I like to be prepared ahead of time. Here I have listed for you the best and simplest healthy snacks for when you’re on-the-go. Don’t forget your water bottle to stay hydrated during your trip!
If you forget to pack snacks – no worries! Don’t be tempted by the sugar-filled, sodium-loaded snacks staring you down in the aisles of a convenience store. Go for snack bars with less than 10 g sugar and at least 3 g protein or a nut mix with dried fruit. Also, many times there is a small refrigerated section with veggies and dip, yogurt and fruit which gives you some great options.
