Fast food is aptly named. You’re away from home with little to no time and you need to eat. So you head to the drive thru where you can grab something fast and eat on the go. This is when most people fall victim to poor food choices.
Then about an hour later you feel groggy, and like you could nap for approximately 1000 years.
Well lucky for you there are several nutritious foods that will keep your energy up, are totally portable, and can be eaten no matter where your travels take you.
Be sure to grab some of these healthy snacks for on the go next time you hit the grocery store. Then all you need is a lunch bag and an ice pack and you’re armed for the day. It literally takes less than five minutes to do this in the morning, and it’s SOOOOO worth it!!!
These are some of the most portable proteins, fruits, and veggies along with a couple extra goodies. 😉
Feel free to create your own combos from the list below, but always be sure to take along at least one protein so you’ll stay full longer.
– Paleo Valley Grassfed Beef Sticks (these are SO GOOD and so good for you)
– boiled eggs
– nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews, pecans)

Trying to get on a healthier track??
Hey! I’m Julie.
I’m the mother of three, ages 28, 21, and 6, and Gima (grandmom) to a five-year-old grandson.
Over my 28 years of child-rearing I have been ALL the moms (single, married, stay-at-home, working, young, ‘mature’, struggling, stable, etc) and have faced every healthy eating challenge there is.
I’m now the founder of Well Fed Families, and I authored a cookbook called ‘Easy, Healthy Meals for the Tired-Ass Mom’ just for moms like YOU!
I bring tons of real-life, family-raising experience to the table to help other overwhelmed mamas get on a healthier track.
Please get comfy and take a look around. I have lots of good stuff for you!
I’m so glad you’re here. <3
