Having something healthy to eat during the day and between meals can be a challenge for anyone at any level. Creating your own healthy snacks is a great way ensure quality and save money. Here is a snack I sometimes use when I am on the road for business, during a busy day of running errands or traveling for snowboarding or BMX:
- 1/2 cup of fiber One Cereal by General mills (1/2 cup contains no sugar, a whopping 14 grams of Dietary Fiber, 25 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of protein, 1 gram of fat and 108 mg of sodium)
- 1/4 cup of unsalted Almonds and/or Cashews
- Option: Lately, I have been substituting the Fiber One cereal with 100% toasted Oats! Tastes just as good!
Blend all the ingredients together in a sturdy plastic Bag and you are good to go for a low-glycemic, energy producing snack that also contains quality fats from the Almonds and Cashews.
It tastes great, kills a craving and saves you from buying junk food out of desperation. Stay active, stay focused…Go Getem!
