Wellness Wednesday Tip: Plan Healthy Snacks
Plan ahead with healthy snacks - at your desk, in your car, or in your travel bag. Having whole food options within reach when hunger strikes will help ensure you don't make poor choices. Try packing a few handfuls of raw almonds. Almonds pack a decent dose of protein and do a great job of curbing hunger. Or try cutting up some veggies such as carrots, cauliflower, or broccoli. These kinds of vegetables have significant nutritional value and will stay fresh throughout the day. Another good option for food on the go is a protein shake. Carrying protein powder is easy, and you can always find water or milk to make your shake. It only takes a second and with the right protein powder, this can be an excellent meal replacement.
