When your travelling or on the go it’s great to have some snacks ready to go so you don’t get caught out feeling hungry and reaching for the nearest usually unhealthy snack.
Here are some easy, healthy snacks to take with you when you are on the run:
I know I know it sounds so boring but what about mango slices with fresh lime or a mixture of blueberries, strawberries and raspberries or even fresh coconut pieces. You could even make a fresh fruit salad with seasonal fruit before you head out.
Coconut yoghurt, chia porridge and sliced fresh fruit
This is a great breakfast on the go option that can be made in advance and grabbed from the fridge. Make a chia porridge and layer with fruit, coconut, coconut yoghurt, berries, banana and for a nutritious and filling snack.
Nuts are a great snack when you are on the road, if possible go for the activated kind. You can also dry them out in the oven and flavor with garlic and herb salt and vinegar.
Smoothies are an easy snack that you can make ahead and grab when you are heading out the door. Try to include some greens to boost the nutritional value of the smoothie (you won’t even taste them!) Make sure you keep it cold, no one likes a warm smoothie!
This one takes a little less prep time and are really easy to eat on the go. Containing a good mix of protein and fats, eggs will keep you full for a long time.
