Hummus is Yummus: Healthy and Portable Snack Alternatives

I lead an active lifestyle. When I am not driving to the gym, I am heading to work, hitting the trails and I never seem to stop. While I am a fan of protein bars, so many of them contain chocolate, which on warmer days, starts to melt and can create a mess. I have compiled a list of my favorite car snacks that fair well in the warmest and coldest of conditions.

I cannot get enough of these grass-fed beef sticks! I love the Original flavor but the Jalapeño puts some zest in my step! With only 100 calories and 9 grams of protein, these are the perfect snack to help muscles recover, while also filling a gap between meals!

With a variety of flavors to choose from, these oatmeal and fruit packs are perfect for a quick breakfast or snack. These pouches contain a good source of fiber and Omega 3 (flax) that help keep my energy up throughout the day. Ranging from 90-110 calories, depending on the flavor, I love this marriage of fruit puree and oats!

I love keeping a packet of these pitted olives in my car for a salty yet beneficial snack! Olives are full of vitamins, minerals as well as amino acids. These elements help to strengthen the immune system while natural fats and oils help to speed up recovery! With only 50 calories per pouch, Oloves provide a quick boost with minimal calories.

Whether I am on the trails or out running errands, Wild Zora gives my body the satisfaction it needs when I am on the go. A healthier and more tender alternative to jerky, Wild Zora creates delicious flavors packed with 7-9 grams of protein. Calories ranch from 100-130 per packet with a variety of meat to choose from such as beef, lamb, pork and turkey.

I hope you find the perfect fuel to keep healthy and strong!
