Life gets busy sometimes, and when this happens, it can be easy to forget to look after yourself properly. A lot of people can skip meals because they are rushing from place to place, but this can mean that your body is not getting the right nutrition that it needs nor the energy to keep up with a demanding schedule. If you’re a lady who is always on the go and wants to have quick, healthy, and easy foods that you can eat between meetings or on your commute, here are a few things you should take in your bag when you leave the house.
Oats are a great source of energy and can fill you up for a few hours, helping you to avoid the need to snack on perhaps unhealthy things like a chocolate bar or a packet of crisps. Overnight oats have become popular because they are something you can prepare before you go to bed, providing you with a quick, healthy, and tasty breakfast the next morning that you can eat quickly before you leave the house. You could even take it in Tupperware with you to eat at the office or on the commute. If overnight oats never appealed to you, why not try instant oatmeal cups for a hot alternative that is just as quick and easy? You could have them for a quick breakfast at home or prepare them at the office to eat at your desk.
These are another great snack to take with you in your bag, provided you don’t have too many heavy items in there – you don’t want them to get squashed! Bananas are packed full of nutrients and can help to boost both heart health and aid your digestive system. They can also help to satisfy hunger pangs, making them an ideal healthy snack to have with you when you’re on the go.
- Mixed Nuts
Nuts are also very healthy for you and can make a lovely savory snack if you’re feeling peckish on a train, bus, or sitting at your desk. Although popular, try to avoid salted nuts as even though these can be more appealing to your tastebuds than the plain variety, it will only make you go over your daily salt intake, which isn’t good for you. If you want to create a bit more flavor, mix your nuts with dried fruit and seeds to keep it as a healthy snack.
- Yogurt Pots
Yogurt is great for breakfast, as a dessert, or just a snack in-between your meals. You can buy low-fat yogurts as a healthier option to some others in the grocery store, or you can buy plain yogurt and put it with fruit, granola, or honey to sweeten it up. Again, take this with you in Tupperware if you’re going to combine things with plain yogurt yourself, or take a pot with you – just remember to pack a spoon!
If you’re a lady who is always on the go and is looking for some healthy snack options to give yourself a boost, consider the suggestions above and take them with you the next time you leave the house to take on the world!
