It can be easy to make quick and unhealthy food choices when on the go. That’s because convenience often trumps healthfulness when people are racing against the clock to get something done quickly, like running errands or grabbing a quick lunch with coworkers before returning to work. But it’s possible to make fast food healthier without slowing down. This article explores five quick and healthy food options that will fit into even the busiest schedules.
A granola bar is a great way to get extra fiber. Granola bars are a great alternative because they are quick to make and provide a lot of healthy calories. They also provide protein and fiber. It’s critical to look for granola bars with little or no added sugar, as too much sugar can pack on the pounds if consumed regularly. Whole-grain granola bars contain a lot of complex carbs, which are also healthy.
Smoothies are a convenient, nutritious, and tasty option for people on the go. All that is required is a blender or shaker bottle and a few minutes to prepare an easy-to-carry meal rich in essential nutrients. Whether fruit- or vegetable-based, smoothies are unquestionably convenient and healthy options for on-the-go consumption
Peanut Butter and Celery
A simple peanut butter sandwich with celery sticks is high in protein and fiber while also tasting delicious. They are available in some restaurants, but not in all. A lean turkey sandwich (no mayo) or a hummus wrap with veggies and whole-grain crackers are also excellent choices. A baked sweet potato, beans, rice, or other legumes as sides will make a person feel full without adding too many calories.
Roasted chickpeas are a light, healthy, and flavorful snack to keep you going between meals. The best part is that they only take about 10 minutes to prepare and can be stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks. The best way to prepare these snacks is to roast some at least once a week and regularly use them as a quick snack or small meal.
The trick is finding healthier versions of popular snack foods like granola bars, potato chips, or pretzels, usually made with loads of processed sugar, salt, or preservatives.
