We get it, you’re busy, you have places to go and people to see and little ones to shuttle from A to B to C, every day of the week. You’ve got a lot on your plate and sometimes it can be hard to prioritize yourself while you’re so busy making sure everyone around you is happy, and comfortable, and fed.
The thing is, you deserve to be fueled and nourished in the same way that you try to nourish your little ones, and being pressed for time shouldn’t change that.
This week we wanted to share a few of our favourite snacks that are great for on the go that both you and your kiddos will love, directly from our own Registered Nutritionist!
Smoothies - you can pack a ton of fruits and veggies and extra nutrients like hemp hearts, chia and flax seeds, etc. into smoothies and the littles will never even know that they’re healthy. PRO TIP: take the kids portions out of the blender and then add in some vegan protein to kick yours up a notch!
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!
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.
Homemade Granola Bars - 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, it’s a crowd pleaser for sure.
Chia Seed Pudding - it tastes like pudding but it is packed with fiber, healthy fats, omega 3s, and protein, plus you can basically add whatever mix in’s you like, and it’s super easy to make and bring along on your day. Here is a great recipe with 6 different options!
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.
Tubify Freezies - 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!Enjoy - @tubify
