Fall has officially arrived, but that does not mean your summer body has to go too! Don’t let your hard work at the gym go to waste. Take 5-10 minutes the night before work or school to prepare yourself a protein packed lunch. An on-the-go protein box is ideal for lunch or snacking throughout the day. These boxes can also be used as a late night snack if you are craving something small before heading to bed. Pick your favorite protein snacks and pack them up in a nicely arranged box.
Suggested: Naturade Breakfast Granola with Brown Rice Protein
Here are some options to add to your on-the-go protein box:
Boiled eggs: 1-3 eggs is the suggested amount that a person should have in one day. Correlate your box to ensure that you consume under 3 eggs throughout the whole day.
Apples: Apples are rich in antioxidants and may keep you full for longer periods of time!
Nuts: Nuts are packed with antioxidants and are a great source of fiber.
On-the-go peanut butter packs: Use peanut butter or almond butter as a dip for your fruits such as celeries and carrots. Peanut butter is a great source of healthy fats and protein.
Last but not least, add your choice of crackers! Just a handful of crackers for a source of carbs to satisfy your hunger and give you a boost of energy!
These boxes are so small, they fit perfectly in your gym back for a convenient post-workout snack. Once you’re done with your on-the-go protein box, you’ll be satisfied and full while still maintaining a healthy diet!
