We're quickly getting closer and closer to summer which means we're all about to be spending a lot more time outside and that means we are going to need healthy snacks for these outings! (DUH)
Summer is our favourite season, yes we're biased because #freezies but it really is the best. This year we plan on making the most out of every week, camping, hiking, beach days, we are doing it all!
These are some of our favourite healthy snacks which happen to be perfect for on the go!
Our Favourite Healthy Snack Options
Tubify Freezies - you knew we would go here BUT they are the perfect summer snack, they taste like a treat but they’re GOOD FOR YOU! Our freezies are nutritious, delicious and they really couldn’t be more perfectly portable even if we tried!
Fruit - this one is pretty much self explanatory but there are few things better than just a piece of fruit when you’re on the go.
Smoothies - you can pack a ton of fruits and veggies and extra nutrients like hemp hearts, chia and flax seeds, etc. into smoothies and can add protein powder to make it more balanced and filling!
Veggies and Hummus - always a crowd favourite, you really can’t go wrong with veggies and dip, and when you use hummus in place of a creamy dressing, you’re getting the extra added fiber and protein from the chickpeas, win win!
Energy Balls - throw any nuts, seeds, and dried fruit you have on hand in with some oats, a nut butter, maybe some maple syrup and you can even add a few chocolate chips for good measure, we love this recipe!
Overnight Oats - add oats, chia seeds, plant based milk and whatever else you want (we like adding fruit and nut butter), you can basically add whatever mix in’s you like, give it a stir or a shake if you're using a jar, and pop it in the fridge overnight so it's ready the next morning! One of our favs because it is super easy to make and bring along on your day.
Organic Tortilla Chips with Salsa or Guac (or both) - always a crowd favourite, you really can't go wrong with chips and dip!
Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich on Sprouted Bread - like the classic you grew up with only 10x more nutrient dense and full of protein and fiber just from swapping to sprouted bread.
Loaded Veggie Sandwich on Sprouted Bread - again the sprouted bread is optional but it does give youth boost of fibre and protein, and try adding things like hummus and avocado to make your sandwich more filling, and LOAD up on veggies!Enjoy - @tubify
