On the run? Picking kids up from school, soccer, dance, karate, gymnastics, lacrosse, basketball, volleyball, cheer, baseball, water polo, swimming, theater, girl scouts, boy scouts, piano lessons, tap, dance, banjo lessons….or you maybe you’re on the road a lot for work… it could be anything. The point is, you may have a busy schedule which sometimes causes you to miss a meal now and then. When you miss a meal, your energy levels get messed up and when you finally do eat, you may eat more than you should or even something that may not be the best choice.
Having portable food stored in your purse (or if you don’t carry a purse maybe in your car or briefcase) will allow you to not miss a meal and you to be sure that what you do eat has been thought out and is not filled with a bunch of hooey. There are some great healthy options and a bunch of others that seem to be healthy but really aren’t. I will be posting some of the ones that are probably more healthy than the ones you will find in the quickie mart or gas station.
The first one is pictured here is the Organic Food Bar; it is about 300 calories and 14 grams of protein:
Ingredients: Organic Almond Butter, Organic Dates, Organic Premium Blue Agave Nectar, Organic Brown Rice Protein, Organic Bio SproutsTM – Flax, Organic BiodynamicTM (Demeter) Raisins, Organic Bio SproutsTM – Quinoa, Organic Sesame Seeds and Lots of Love!
My favorite ingredient is the Lots of Love! You can find these in your local health food stores or you can order them online. If you do not have a good health food store in your town, here is a list of places they sell them, I do not see Jimbo’s on here and that is where I picked this one up.
