What type of convenience foods do you reach for in the midst of a busy day? Learn how to make better food choices when an inevitable hectic day arises.
I would say I hear the words, “I don’t have time to snack/eat during the day” at least 5 times a week. I don’t say that negatively. I get it! Jobs, family and busy lives can require us to always be on our feet and hustling from point A to points X, Y and Z. It’s exhausting, but it’s our life! What other option do we have? We don’t all have the luxury to sit for a quiet, hour long lunch break. For that reason, many of us grab whatever we can get our hands on, that can be quickly shoved in our mouths.
The problem that occurs with this way of eating is the quality of the food we choose. Many people lean toward the snack machine and I think you and I both know, it doesn’t offer anything nutritional. Things like sugar packed candy bars, sacks of chips and packaged crackers are standard when we go that route. Sometimes, we choose to not eat anything! That’s almost as bad as eating the unhealthy machines snacks. I don’t want you to have to continue this path at all! You aren’t doing yourself any favors by eating unhealthy during your busy day. In fact, you may think you are helping yourself by just getting anything in your system, when in fact you are causing yourself more harm than good. Check out these on the go, Personal Trainer approved snacks that are guaranteed not to pack on the pounds or cause you any guilt or regret! Take a look…
The RXBAR is an amazing snack bar that is filled with only the necessities. I love that it tells you plain as day, on very front of the packaging exactly what the bar contains. The RXBAR contains about 12-15 grams of protein on average and there are over 6 different options for you to choose from! Many people get tired of the same old chocolate and peanut butter flavored bars on the market today and I can’t blame them. I like variety in my snacks, as well. Thanks to all the great options, your taste buds won’t get bored so easily.
Luna Bars definitely aren’t meant to be a meal replacement bar. However, they are fantastic for a quick snack when you are on the move. Luna bars are very low in sugar and fat. They are available in a multitude of different flavors. Thanks to their small and compact size, you can fit them almost anywhere! If you are a nurse, or anyone who has loose pockets attached to their clothing, the Luna Bar is ideal for you!
Try these bars out and see what you think! Like I said, they both come in loads of flavors, so you are bound to find one that suits your taste! No one likes to stay hungry. Hunger discourages our brain and body from functioning at their peak potential. The same goes for when we snack on fast food or snack machines “foods”. The more artificial and processed foods you put in your body, the harder it will be to perform at your best. Try these two options out for a week and see the difference they can make in your fast paced, daily routine!
