You know the feeling. You hit snooze one too many times, and now you’re jetting to make it to work on time. Without time to plan for a healthy breakfast or snack, you end up with a fast food lunch and an evening of regret. Below you will find easy, healthy snacks you can grab on-the-go and feel good about.
Trail mix can be customized anyway you want it. It can be savory, sweet or somewhere in between. When choosing a trail mix, many grocers now offer an isle where you can build your own custom trail mixes. These are great, but make sure the ingredients don’t look stale and are in a well-sealed chamber. Watch out for added sugars and sodium when shopping for a healthy trail mix.
Greek Yogurt Parfaits
Greek yogurt is high in protein, with an average of 20 grams per cup. There is no right or wrong way to make a parfait, but be mindful of the sugar content of the granola you select and the fruit you choose to include. You can layer yogurt, berries and granola in a glass jar for a beautiful visual effect, or grab a portable parfait from the dairy isle at your favorite grocer. Personally, I love my parfaits chilled. The colder the better. Try setting your parfait in the freezer for 15 minutes. Yum.
Hummus & Veggies
Hummus is nutrient rich and filling, making it an ideal snack when you need a quick energy boost. Enjoy the dip with carrots or celery sticks, and be mindful of the recommended serving size, to make the snack a healthy treat.
