Eat Cleaner Living Tip #15 – // Practice Safe Snax

February 10, 2010

Whether you’re road tripping,  chasing your kids across the park or bounding around the country chasing down clients, staying healthy on the road can be an all-out battle of the binge. To satiate your snacking fix without completely sabotaging your diet or suffering a melt down, put down the ding dongs and pack a host of treats that’ll keep you energized and flying high!  These snacks go the distance.

Kris Black and Christina DeRosa Practice Safe Snax On the Set

1)  F+V, naturally:  Getting 5-9 servings of fruit + veggies a day when you’re on the road can be a feat of nature, but grab ‘n go solutions are easy if you think ahead and opt for items that stand up to the elements.  Chop and EAT CLEANER up bite size carrots, broccoli spears, celery sticks and radishes and skewer them for a portable treat.  Or cut up an apple with a corer and spray with EAT CLEANER Fruit + Vegetable Wash to help them stay fresher, longer and carry them in our new favorite reusable snack envelopes (http://www.freshsnackpack.com).   

2)  Food Should Taste This Good:  That’s the name of the brand and we love these better-for-you chips when you need a crunchy fix.  Multi-grain tortilla chips are made with flax, sunflower and sesame seeds so they come with functional benefits.  Flavors like Olive and Jalapeno appeal to your worldly tastebuds while Chocolate and Cinnamon satisfy a sweet tooth.  I don’t feel so guilty about dipping these.

 3)  Lotsa Mozz:  Dairy lovers, don’t despair. Horizon Organic Mozzarella String Cheese is easy to pack and offers 7 grams of protein a stick.  A quick breakfast or wholesome snack, without the hormones. String cheese isn’t just for kids, but we think eating it will make you feel younger.

4) Bars in Cars:  The number of energy bars out there is a bit dizzying but we lean towards the GoLean bars from Kashi.  Clean, functional ingredients like Oat Fiber, Brown Rice and Soy Protein with natural sweeteners keep you going without the crash. Chewy and Crunchy varieties let you pick your favorite texture and the flavors, like Oatmeal Raisin  and Cinnamon Coffee Cake, are all good and nip a sugar craving.
