I found delicious ways to keep my energy levels ups and snacks close by at works. Here are a few that have been helping me get through the day.
1) Blueberries. I’m obsessed. I eat them by the handful. Not only are they loaded with antioxidants, they’re good for the brain and heart! I just wanted to add I JUST got this collapsible eco-friendly meal kit from Smart Planet and it’s the most genius thing ever. It has the perfect portion for my main course, and two more compartments for snacks/sides. It’s microwave/dishwasher safe. It’s collapsible, so it’s easy to store once you’re done eating. It even has a condiment/vitamin space in the lid and a reusable spork utensil that stores underneath the lid. They basically thought of everything, and it’s been my new lunchtime savior ($9.99, smartplanethome.com).
2) Cashews. As you can see above, I have a whole compartment filled with nuts from Karma. My favorite kind are their wrapped cashews. They retain their natural skin so they taste a little more toasty, but it has twice the fiber as regular cashews. They add just a tiny bit of sea salt for flavor, but otherwise it’s minimally processed ($12.50, karmanuts.com).
3) Bonga Baobab Superfood Chews. I’m saving the best for last here. My roommates and I are officially addicted to these healthy snacks. I actually can’t believe they can taste so good and still be good for you. They’re are made from the baobab fruit, a wild-harvested superfruit from South Africa which is rich in antioxidants, naturally rich in fiber and vitamin C, and has high alkaline, potassium, magnesium, and electrolytes. Basically the best answer to your gummi bear addiction.
They’re made with all natural ingredients, and their sugar (16 grams) comes from natural fruit ingredients — nothing added. They come in flavors like raspberry, mango, pomegranate, but strawberry is my standout favorite. My roommates and I easily finished a whole box of it in a week. Try them, trust me, they taste aaaa-mazzing. (from $10.99, bongafoods.com or Whole Foods)
