Now that school is starting, I personally snack all the time. Whether it's because I sometimes don't have time to eat breakfast or lunch, or I just get hungry when I have a 10 hour day, snacks are vital. However, it's easy for the calories, sugar, and empty carbs to add up. Here's our favorite healthy snacks for a busy student on the go:
Drink: CalNatural Svelte Protein Shakes
Does "protein shake" remind you of buff men at the gym, pumping iron? It shouldn't. CalNaturale Svelte shakes provide you with the nutrition and sustained energy you need to navigate through a busy day. Each rich, creamy flavor is created with protein from fresh organic soymilk and complex carbs for sustained energy. The best part is that it comes in several different flavors, all of which taste delicious!
Salty Snack: Kashi Pita Chips in Zesty Salsa
Out of the many Kashi snacks I tried, their pita chips in Zesty Salsa was one of my favorites. They're delicious with some hummus, but also perfect alone, making it a great snack on the go. These are one of the few healthy snacks I've tried that doesn't give up a great taste to be healthy. Grab a handful and stuff them in a Ziplock bag for a mid-afternoon snack!
Sweet Snack: Kashi Chocolate Soft-Baked Squares
For those of you craving something sweeter, Kashi's Chocolate Soft-Baked Squares lets you get your fill of chocolately-goodness without giving you the butter or sugar of a brownie. Although they do taste slightly different (they are a healthy alternative, afterall), I found that they usually satisfied my craving for a sweet snack.
