We know that what goes into our body has a significant effect on how we feel and look. For those of you that read our article, “Eating #thesuperfoodway,” you know I’m a fan of doing all things that are great for your body and skin. That includes sunscreen, the most nourishing skin care, and yes, the eating right foods! Eating right cannot just be limited to eating at home, as many of us are often too busy for that all the time. I can’t tell you how often I only have time to grab a snack in the car in between meetings! I’ll fill you in on what snacks I keep around me so that you too can still snack in a smart way, even on the go. It may seem like an annoying thing to do, but you body and skin will thank you 100 times over after adopting these super snacks.

Here are some sure-fire ways for you traveling guys and gals to skip the drama when it comes to worrying about when their next meal will come from. These tasty, filling snacks will also help prevent the dreaded binge episode that is all too common when we’re not able to eat as soon as we thought or if we just can’t squeeze in a normal-sized meal.

The Protein Bar Myth

Put the “protein bar” down, unle- unless nothing. Most protein bars contain chemicals that are not much better than the ones you would find in processed “junk” foods. If you don’t do this already, make it a habit to read the ingredient labels on the foods you eat, and that includes the many products that claim to be “protein-filled,” “healthy,” or anything similar. As a rule of thumb, make fruit and vegetables your friend: the apple. The peach, the baby carrots. The baby tomatoes. Baby anything. And if you need something more substantial, we have solutions for you too.

Keep these handy!

Whether it’s in your car, desk drawer, purse, or briefcase, or kitchen cabinet.

An easy snack to replace chips with. At home, you can dip these in hummus, a homemade tzatziki sauce, or eat alone on the go!

These fruits are full of fiber, plentiful in vitamins, and are super-filling, so they’re sure to curb any cravings you may have throughout the morning or afternoon. Take a paper towel with you to keep the core in.

• Nuts

shutterstock_259041671Unsalted almonds, peanuts, cashews, walnuts, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, are all great choices! Nuts are superfoods that are amazing for the hair, skin, and nails, in moderation. Keep these in your cabinet to sprinkle on salads, to throw in your smoothies, or to eat alone! Yum!

• Lara bars

These are great on the go and contain minimal ingredients! OR If you’re feeling creative and have some time, try your own homemade version! Check out “Protein Bars Recipe” or find your own on Pinterest!

Do the 2-Step

Here are some more filling recipes that take an extra step or two, but are tasty enough to take the time. These can be pre-made for days you know you will only have time to grab and GO!

141089400796344526xMIWVf2Yc-1• CUCUMBER sandwiches instead of bread- Cucumber and turkey “sandwiches” or rolls are both hydrating and filling choices, full of proteins and vitamins. Easily customizable, make them with your favorite type of lean meat, and add avocado or hummus for some texture! This guilt-free super-snack will satiate anyone.

shutterstock_53420056• WRAPS– one of my favorites is the avocado-turkey combo on spinach wrap or whole wheat wrap. These are easily customizable, transportable and minimally messy. Other great variations include turkey-hummus, turkey-mustard, salmon and capers, or roast beef-tomato. Use your imagination!

shutterstock_147531833• SWEET POTATO as pizza crust or potato substitutes- I have tried this substitution many times for all times of the day, and I’m not the best chef in the world, but this always works! These beta-carotene filled super snacks are perfect for times your body needs more of an extra-filling meal. Just microwave a sweet potato for 5-6 minutes (instead of roasting in the oven for 45 min), chop up, and sauté with extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt. Afterwards, throw in a zip lock bag for on-the-go French-fry –like satisfaction.


I make a power smoothie each morning or to drink before I hit the gym. These are so easily personalized; it is a great choice for anyone! And you can take these anywhere on the go.
