Healthy Snack Choices

March 21, 2011

It seems the more fabulous your life is, the more you’re on the go. The more you’re on the go, the harder it is to eat healthy. What’s a girl to do? Eat junky snacks on the go and risk the smokin’ bod she’s worked so hard to achieve? No way! Bikini weather is right around the corner, and I know you’ve already bought a hot, flirty two-piece that you’re dying to show off on the beach this summer.

Snacking on fresh fruits (like oh-so-good-for you luscious organic strawberries) and vegetables is a great choice, but have you ever noticed they don’t keep so well at the bottom of your Kate Spade bag?

If you want to stay out of the dreaded drive-thru line next time you’re out and about (nothin’ kills a bikini bod faster than saying “super-size it, please”), be smart and plan ahead. Keep some snacks that won’t go bad in your car or in your cutest-ever bag.

For a quick-energy-boost that will tide you over until your next healthy meal……here are some healthy, natural snacks you’re going to flip for.

Two Moms in the Raw organic, vegan snacks. First of all, I gotta say, my fave name for a snack brand EVAH! You’ll get your crunch on with their snack crackers (tomato basil – yum!) or their granola.

Two Degrees nutrition bars. Omgosh! The Cherry Almond flavor is soooooo amazing, you’ll never be tempted to hit the drive-thru again. And, get this. With each bar you purchase, Two Degrees sends a healthy nutrition pack to a malnourished child. Snacking on Two Degrees is the definition of win-win.

Luna Bars. Nourishment and Indulgence are what Luna is all about. Luna is made with organic ingredients and adds vitamins for extra nourishment. You can indulge in your chocolate cravings with a Caramel Nut Brownie bar or give yourself a burst of fuel with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein bar.

So go for it. Keep your fabulous, fast paced life without sacrificing healthy food. One last thing – don’t forget to carry a reusable bottle of water around when you’re out and about so you can wash down those snacks in eco-fabulous style!
