It’s All in the Bag

In a hurry? Need a snack? Before you you grab something unhealthy, let’s think of something delicious and healthy to eat first.

It’s so easy just to grab that little bag of chips or cookies and run, right? But what if there was a way to grab something fast and not feel bad about it later?

There is! And it’s as simple as a box of Ziploc bags…

Since we’re all on busy schedules going from place to place, no time to make ourselves a tidy salad, might I suggest getting some of your favorite healthy food and keeping some in separate bags in the fridge so you can grab one and get to that meeting on time and with a happy stomach.

All it takes is a box of plastic bags and your favorite fruit and/or veggies, I suggest grapes, carrots, and celery just because those are low calorie options that won’t make a big mess in case you’re eating these while you’re driving.

Let’s compare the nutritional value of a bag of potato chips to our homemade veggie bags…

small bag of potato chips  has 115 calories and 10.6 grams of  total fat  versus our little bag of carrots  at 4 calories and NO FAT!

Eating these tasty snacks on the go instead of potato chips will help you get through whatever you’re going to–whether it’s a business meeting or a college class or even a road trip, this is a great way to tide you over until your next meal!

Another healthy alternative would be those fun 100 Calories snack packs. They have just enough goodies in each bag to satisfy your appetite without giving you the added calories! The bags might make you feel like you’re not getting much, but it’s really just enough to tide you over in the afternoon.
