Nutrition on the Go

If you have a busy schedule with barely any time to stop for lunch, buy healthy snacks to pack and bring with you when you leave. The snacks can include fruit, apples, berries, or bananas; vegetables, such as carrots or sliced peppers; protein sources like nuts or hard boiled eggs; or even pretzels and a granola bar.

Carrying around snacks like these are easy and don’t make a mess! Packing snacks will help you from buying convenient snacks or fast food meals that are calorie filled and lack nutrients. Buying healthy snacks in bulk at a grocery store and packing it yourself is much more inexpensive than buying snacks on the go from gas stations and convenient stores. They also fill you up if you still have a lot of time before your next meal, so you don’t have to continue to snack all day.
