It's that time of year when squeezing a workout or a healthy bite to eat seems next to impossible. Between hightailing it to work each morning, the kids' after-school activities starting to pile up and your promise to bake 332 cookies for the upcoming bake sale, fall is a busy time of year.
But don't let a jam-packed schedule get in the way of your gluten-free eating ways. Stash a few of these on-the-go snacks in your tote bag and you'll guarantee that the munchies won't lead you to a last resort detour down fast food lane. The best part? We've paired them with beverages that will keep you hydrated for the long haul.
The perfect combination of sweet and salty, these chips pack three grams of fiber per serving. Munch on them while sipping a pre-made –– all you have to do is add water –– Vega Vanilla Almondilla Energizing Smoothie and you have the perfect nosh for rush hour traffic. Bonus? This whole snack is vegan too!
Treat your body to a pre-workout snack with an irresistibly tasty bar that contains 10 grams of protein and natural, dairy-free ingredients. Rehydrate with coconut water, like Vita Coco, an all-natural choice that's loaded with nutrients and electrolytes. And if homemade treats are the name of your game, then consider whipping up these raw, easy-as-pie Key Lime Cashew Bars.
Do a little double duty by packing a snack that will not only put a smile on your face, but make the kids happy too. Toss some Pirate's Booty in a baggie along with a side of fresh cut veggies and everyone will have something to munch during long car rides. Keep everyone hydrated by filling a few reusable water bottles with water and adding slices of your favorite fruits, vegetables or herbs, such as lemons, oranges, berries, cucumbers, mint or parsley for a healthy alternative to store-bought versions.
Make 'em the night before and then store these cookies in the refrigerator for a delightful post-long-workday treat. They're vegan, free of refined sugars and just plain ol' yummy. Had a really tough day? Sip on a Green's Gluten-Free Endeavour Dubbel Ale for a hint of dark sugar and toffee flavorings that will feel like a hard-earned pat on the back.
