Healthy Meals On The Go

Food

One of the most common issues clients have is knowing what to eat and how to prepare Healthy Meals On the Go. Often times, people are in a rush, need a road trip meal, work from their car or just don’t have access to a microwave and want to eat healthy. For that reason, OPAL Nutrients has compiled a few gluten free lunch and snack ideas you can just throw in a cooler and eat on the go.  

First, remember that snacking can usually lead to over consumption of sugar. Most people want to grab something quick and grab a “nutrition bar”, most of which are filled with sugar. Fruits are a common form of snacks and are also filled with sugar. Though this sugar is considered “good sugar”, we recommend clients monitor their daily intake.   

I have created a list of foods that can be homemade and some to be purchased prepackaged on Amazon (only when necessary for convenience). 

Homemade Snack and Meal ideas: 

Paleo Chia Pudding Snack: I found this simple yet delicious recipe from Paleo Cupboard for Paleo Chia Pudding Snacks. Chia pudding is filling, sweet and a great source of fiber. Switch the honey to agave for vegans. 

Gluten free – Vegan – Vegetarian – Paleo 

Homemade Zucchini Chips: Zucchini chips are one of the most underrated snacks in the world, in my opinion. This recipe is from A Spicy Perspective but honestly, you should make them however you’d like. Basically, just baked zucchini and season as desired, it’s really that simple. I prefer mine spicy so I season with chili powder. 

Gluten free – Vegan – Vegetarian – Paleo 

Paleo Gluten Free Zucchini Bread: This one is a personal favorite. A Saucy Kitchen has a really simple recipe that tastes great. Feel free to make multiple loaves at a time and freeze them. You can defrost a loaf and use it that same week.  

Gluten free – Vegetarian – Paleo 

Avocado Caprese Salad: I found this recipe a couple months ago and I was delighted. Not sure how I hadn’t thought of this before but I am happy to know it now. This will be my new go-to summer salad recipe. This version does not include cheese but if you wanted to add organic caprese cheese, that would still be nutritious. 

Gluten Free – Keto – Vegan – Vegetarian – Paleo – Whole 30 – Low Carb 

Spinach and Artichoke Dip: Typically, Spinach and Artichoke dip is one of my favorite cheat snacks, so I found a recipe to help me cheat a little less. Unbound Wellness, gave me a great guideline to make a simple yet healthy version of this delicious snack. You can use celery, cucumbers, or carrots to dip into this delightful snack. 

Dairy Free – Whole 30  

Gluten Free Italian Pasta Salad: This is a great post workout snack for you or the kids. Keep this in the car cooler to replenish your carbohydrate and protein intake.  

Here are a few other ideas; Veggies and Hummus, Wraps with Gluten Free tortillas, Protein balls, Turkey Jerky, Bell Peppers, Snap Peas, Celery with Almond Butter, Trail Mix, Nuts, Kale Chips, Baked Carrots and more. Send me an email or message on Instagram if you want more.  

Amazon Snacks: 

Nick’s Sticks 100% Grass-Fed Beef Snack Sticks: This a much healthier alternative to beef jerky. You can keep these right in your car and you don’t need a cooler. Sugar free, antibiotic free, soy free, keto approved, gluten free, and whole 30 approved. 

Protein Crisps: Typically, I am not a fan of clients eating cheese but this is a package food that offers high protein without preservative or gluten. Eat in moderation.  

The GFB Gluten Free, Non-GMO High Protein Bites, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter: This snack is delicious but also high in sugar. These are great for when you want a sweet treat on the road.  

Remember, homemade is always better. You can keep a much more natural and holistic lifestyle if you meal prepare and plan for a healthier life.
