Snack Attacks - Planning to avoid a disaster

Posted Feb 10 2009 11:01am

Has this happened to you? You wake up one day, rush out of the house, you've forgotten your lunch and then the munchies creep up and attack you.

Because of a rather insane traveling schedule, coupled with my children's high school soccer, school musical and basketball games, almost every night this week I've found myself rushing to something, anything to put into my stomach. This lack of planning is what my dad would call "planning to fail."

I have often times suggested to my friends to keep healthy thinks like almonds in their cars, but the combination of air travel, delayed flights and not wanting to miss what might be my babies first slam dunk has kept me from my usual grocery store habits.

According to the American Dietic Association healthy snack s are a must of everyone. Knowing that my week will be filled with running to and from one event to the next I packed my car with a nutritional first aid kid.

Using a little common sense, and a little inginuity I put a tote bag in the trunk of my car filled with a few healthy goodies.
  • Almonds - MMMM! One of my favorite snacks!
  • Rasins
  • One case of water (I don't normally drink water out of bottles, but it's better then soda)
  • Prunes
  • Almond butter
  • High fiber Kashi Crackers
  • One package of Purple Pops - these are my good-health-assurance supplements!
I feel like I'm stocked with Army rations, but with my nutritional safety kit I'm set for days when I can't make it home or to the market. Now instead of stopping at the corner store for a quick bag of what ever they have available, I'm all set with about a weeks worth of healthy snack alternatives in my snack-attack kit.
