We get it. It’s not easy to make the healthiest of food choices when you are on the go. The problem with that you ask? The so-called convenient foods (read bag of chips, chocolates etc) are high on refined carbs and sugar, that leave you craving for more. The right food on the other hand can boost brain power, pump necessary vitamins in your body and make you feel super-energetic—not to mention guarantee fabulous hair and skin. Now, that’s what we call a total win-win.
To make your lives easier (we know how busy you are), we have compiled a list of healthy munchies that are delicious and super-easy to stash in your bag.
PS: Add these to your grocery list STAT.
A girl and her cookie is one eternal love affair; more so when they are freshly baked with uber healthy ingredients. This low carb, protein rich option from NutroActive consists of simple, clean and healthy ingredients, sans gluten, eggs and trans fats—making this an ideal 4 p.m. snack. What we really love though are those white chocolate chips in every bite and the cute coin size which is oh-so-easy to pop in between meetings. Yum.
Craving something crunchy? Try this scrumptious Cranberry and Orange Trail Mix containing dry fruits, Cranberries, flavourful Orange zest and packed with fortifying nutrients such as Vitamins, Minerals, Proteins, Omega 3 and Antioxidants for that extra punch. Binge on this alone or with a side of low-fat yoghurt for the perfect on-the-go breakie. Do we need say more?

Enriched with a unique blend of Ayurvedic herbs and micro-nutrients such as Manjistha, Neem, Zinc, Vitamin B12, Vitamin E, Turmeric, Copper etc., it cleanses and detoxifies blood, blocks sun damage, prevents pigmentation and retains moisture for brighter and clearer skin. Drink up, ladies! Yum.
Have zilch time for an elaborate lunch? Then NutraSphere’s Souprotin High Protein Tomato Soup is just what your nutritionist ordered. Packed with vital vitamins and minerals, Souprotin is excellent for shaping and toning muscle mass as well as counteracting immunity, owing to its low fat and gluten-free formulation. Just mix this in hot water and slurp away. It’s that easy.
Made from 100% roasted peanuts, this organic Peanut Butter is loaded with Vitamin E, essential antioxidants and fats that are great for your heart, skin and hair.
