Life has been so busy lately. We put our home, our first home (!) on the market yesterday and i’m ready for things to start slowing down, at least a little bit! There have been days in the past two weeks where I have barely had time to eat a meal on the go, never mind sit down and eat a meal. So snacking on the go is what i’ve had to try to do.
One of my new favorite on the go snacks is the ZonePerfect Perfectly Simply Protein Bars. I have tried so many different meal or protein bars and so many of them are not very tasty. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these. They taste great, have a lot of different flavors and they are perfect for on the go.
Some other great healthy snacks for on the go for the whole family include:
Fruits & Veggies – These are so easy to grab and go with. I find that if I prepackaged them up in small containers or bags, my daughter is more likely to grab them out of the fridge and eat them. See how I set up a drawer for her in the fridge here!
Nuts – At work we always have containers of mixed nuts, and they are great to grab on the way to a meeting or as we walk out the door! They are packed with protein too.
Protein Bars – As I mentioned before, I love the ZonePerfect Perfectly Simply bars – you can find them at a lot of grocery stores now and they come in 4 different flavors:
- Almond Toffee Crunch
- Bing Cherry & Almond
- Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk
- Roasted Cashew & Dark Chocolate
Water – Drinking lots of water in Texas during the summer is a must. One day while we were in the process of getting our house ready I realized I had nothing to drink from wake up to 5pm – I felt HORRIBLE the next day. I won’t make that mistake again. Water will keep you hydrated and help fill you up before a meal time.
I look forward to calmer days and evenings to come, but for now – I’ll make sure I have something with me to eat for those times when there isn’t time to stop!
