Our top 10 on the go snacks

One of the most important parts of maintaining a good nutrition regimen is to plan your food consumption, and always be prepared.  If you aren’t sure what you’re going to eat throughout your day, and you have to decide while you’re hungry, the chances of making a bad choice goes up exponentially.  One trick is having healthy snacks on hand that help tide you over and alleviate the feeling of desperation when all you really want is a donut.  Here are our faves:

  1. Nuts - Macadamia, Brazil, walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds make a perfect snack. But be careful, these are high in calories and omega 3’s.  The best choice is the macadamia nut because it’s the most balanced of omega 6’s and 3’s.
  2. Cheese - Make sure the cheese is full fat and organic and has no RBHG.
  3. Olives - Naturally high in good fat, they’re a nice combo with the cheese
  4. Celery - Spruce it up with cheese or raw almond or cashew butter.
  5. Full fat yogurt - Check the label, it needs to be low in sugar.  Try plain and add a few drops of vanilla or stevia or your own fruit to it.
  6. Berries - if you need a fruit fix, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries are your best bet. Darker the berry the less sugar.
  7. Beef jerkey - must be organic and grass fed beef.  Watch out for added sugar and soy. We like Mighty Beef Jerky.
  8. Boiled eggs - a staple for all of us!
  9. Avocado - mash them up with you eggs.
  10. Almond butter - add it to some of the above options to jazz ‘em up a bit!  Remember raw is better as the roasted has more omega 6 and less omega 3.
