Easy Healthy Snacks for When You’re on the go

Snacks is the best part of the day (aside from breakfast, lunch and dinner….). Agree?

I don’t know if I do.

But I do love my snacks!

Especially when you have classes all day and need to stay focused, it’s so nice to have a quick snack or two to grab when you have a spare second – just to get that extra bit of energy to push you through the rest of the day. A piece of fruit or two always works, but here’s a few other things I like to bring in my backpack for the afternoon cravings:

HOMEMADE TRAILMIX

I’ll often trail mix as a backup-snack for long days at uni. If your blood sugar is getting low by the end of the day, it’s impossible to concentrate!

The simple mix I usually make consists of almonds, roasted chickpeas, raisins and dark chocolate. It takes no time to mix this stuff – and if you have 5-7 small containers you can prep for a whole week at once. When you make your own trail mix it’s easier to control how much sugar that goes into it.

Here are a few things you can put into your trail mix:

  • Nuts: almonds, cashews, walnuts, peanuts, pecans and pistachios
  • Seeds: sunflower, flax, hemp and pumpkin seeds
  • Sweet: raisins, banana chips, cranberries, dried cherries, dried apricots,dates and chocolate chips
  • Other: chickpeas, granola and popcorn.

ENERGY BITES

I’m certainly not alone when it comes to the love of energy bites. I recently posted a recipe for these no-bake ones, but you can create an endless amount of variations!

These energy bites take no more than a few minutes to create and are a great snack for when you’re busy and don’t have time to sit down to eat – and it’s a good thing they’re so quick to make because they disappear very fast too!

PROTEIN BARS

What can I say, I’m a little in love with food

Quest bars, bodylab, nutramino, whatever bars.

I only recently had my first bar (from Allevo) when they were on sale in the supermarket – and I had to find out if they’re worth the money.

I expected to still be like WHERE’S THE PIZZA! after eating one, but they were surprisingly filling, and the taste was amazing. I loved the rich chocolate flavour of my dark chocolate bar.

Under normal circumstances I think bars can be a bit pricey, but it’s very convenient and the taste is great (and by now there are so many different flavours you’ll find at least one you love). I don’t think bars ever should replace meals, but the convenience factor means it can be a good supplement to a healthy diet.

I know I’ll keep my eye out for protein bars on sale from now on!
