The term “clean eating” can be understood to mean many things. For the purposes of this post, “clean eating” refers to being conscious of the food you are putting into your body.
When you are constantly on the go (as so many of us are), you need proper nutrients to fuel your energy and motivate you to get through the day. While making a quick pass through the drive through may seem like the most convenient solution, it is also convenient to already have good, healthy snacks on hand! Clean eating on the go may seem expensive or inconvenient, but I promise you it proves to be incredibly handy, and you will be so happy to know you are adequately fueling your body.
That being said, here are the top eight foods that I LOVE to have with me when I’m busy or travelling:
Cookie dough for breakfast? Yes please! With 12 grams of protein, these are an excellent boost first thing in the morning.
If having fresh fruit with you isn’t an option, pair one of these pouches with a Luna Bar and you get delicious fiber and protein! They seem like they’re just for kiddos, but I promise you, they are perfect for all ages and require no utensils!
These. Are. Awesome. Just awesome. I buy the coconut-coco flavor from Sprouts Market and they satisfy my sweet tooth perfectly. Best part, they can be paired with fruit, pancakes, or just eaten by themselves!
Baby carrots can be easily packed into snack bags, and small bags of pre-packaged carrots are available at almost any grocery store. They are great to snack on and go great with hummus!
So I know that I keep saying that all of these products are fantastic, but these “tortilla chips” ARE FANTASTIC. They have a ton of flavor and once again, they go great with hummus! I also recommend the Tomato Basil Crackers from Food Should Taste Good. Delicious.
Not joking, these are better than regular chocolate milk. They are rich in flavor and great any time, not just when we’re on the go.
8. Fruits and Veggies
- Nothing can replace the nutrients of wholesome fruits and vegetables. Whenever possible, pack them with you! Throw a banana or an apple in your bag for a quick pick me up instead of grabbing some french fries in the drive thru.
I said it before and I’ll say it again, these are delicious products that make Clean Eating on the Go easy and inexpensive! What are your favorite clean eating foods?
