Paleo Friendly Snacks on the go!
As a mom everything in my life is ON THE GO! Seriously I can't remember the last time I wasn't busy. Whether its running errands, dropping kids off at school, taking meals to friends who aren't well I am always busy. I'm a mom of three little ones under 5 so i typically only snack. I eat 8 small meals a day ranging 200-250 calories. This may or may not work for you but sitting down to eat really doesn't work for me. Everyone must find the balance that works in their lives. I usually keep a few of these in purse at all times. As a breastfeeding mom I am HUNGRY so being able to grab and go makes things easier for me. In the picture above are listed below:
- Natural Delights Coconut Dates
- Suja organic juice
- Garden of Life Raw Protein shakes single packets
- Apples and packs of Justin's brand almond butter
- Quest Bar - not paleo friendly but it has low if not 0 sugars
I also love that isn't listed is:
- Ziplock baggies of mixed berries
- Energy balls
- Lara Bars
- Boiled eggs (usually eat them while still cold)
- Fruit leathers (without added sugar of course)
- Dried fruit (DIY is always better)
- Dark Cacao Bars
- Sweet potatoes chips
Eating paleo really is beneficial for your body. No matter how much I love eating foods that aren't paleo (mostly refined sugar) I always find myself going back to eating in my primal ways because it just makes me feel better. ALSO! There is an awesome documentary called We Love Paleo.
Its a must see! About a month ago both my husband and I watched it and although I had already been living a paleo lifestyle my husband who lives a healthy lifestyle ate a bit differently, decided to go paleo! He turned 30 in February and just noticed his body was not like it use to be in his early twenties. He then went on to be seen by a doctor and the doctor herself recommend getting on the paleo diet. It was like the heavens opened up. He's now eating better and feeling better! Can't wait to see his results in the coming months. Be sure to watch the trailer and let me know what you think!
