Sure, it’s easy to grab whatever is in sight when hunger strikes but is derailing your health and fitness goals really worth that bag of chips? We suggest reaching for something nutritious that will fuel you throughout your day. Grab an apple or banana (yeah, we get it, not so exciting) or try one of these snack options that we are stocking our pantry (and gym bag) with. 

Kate’s Real Food Bars

Kate’s Real Food Bars

With six delicious options (we tried them all), these natural energy bars, which are certified organic, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and sweetened with organic honey taste great and provide the perfect amount of sustainable, long-lasting energy. These thick, yet chewy granola-like bars are not too sweet, and hit the spot. Our favorite was Stash Peanut Butter Hemp & Flax Seed bar, which is no surprise given our nut addiction.  Prefer something even more portable, try their new Snack Bites

The Paleo Girls Granola

Always looking to support the 305, we are fans of this granola founded by two locals. This grain-free granola is packed with flavor and only natural ingredients including almonds, cashews, shredded coconut, pecans, Brazil nuts, coconut oil, coconut sugar, dates, lemon zest, sea salt. Sprinkle it on top of a smoothie, acai bowl, or just eat it out of the bag. 

PB2

Remember our nut addiction, well, yeah, we weren’t kidding. So much so that we can eat PB2 dry, with a spoon. However, when mixed with water as intended, this peanut butter alternative powder is much tastier. For a smoothie loaded with protein,  PB2 Performance Peanut Protein delivers 20g of complete plant-based protein and the subtle Dutch Cocoa flavor option has added prebiotic fiber for digestive health. Or try PB2 Pre+Probiotic, that you can mix into a spread, add to smoothies, baked goods or even us for a healthy Honey Peanut Chicken Satay Recipe.

Biena Snacks

These roasted chickpea snacks deliver a crunch with a punch of protein. Available in a variety of flavors ranging from Sea Salt and Habanero, our go-to is the Honey Roasted, which is the perfect mix of sweet and salty.
