Revisited: The "I don't have time to eat!" snack list
Ok so we know that we have to fuel our system to be able to function properly and we know that being organised is key to making good choices when it comes to food but we are not perfect. What does help is to arm yourself with some knowledge around what to choose when you have no time.
When you are starving and stressed and in a rush and you get to the store to grab something - this is the danger zone. It's so easy to grab a bag of crisps and a soft drink and keep hustling. We know it's not good for us but at that point in time, rational thought isn't exactly happening.
Here is a list of options of items that are readily available at a corner store near you that will help you fuel up:
Beef or Turkey Jerky
A super quick smoothie
Apple pieces with nut butter
Hummus and celery or carrot sticks
Scoop of whey protein with water
Amino acids powder and water
Greens powder and water
LAST RESORT: Naked bars and Protein Balls
As always, keep an eye on the sugar content and try to choose brands with the least amount of crap in them like preservatives and chemicals. And, of course, try to keep an eye on the quantity.
One tip would be to try some of these snacks out when you're not rushing to figure out which ones you like and which ones are the least processed and sugar-filled. This will reduce your need to make decisions about brands when you're running through the store in full Hangry mode.
