School is out and summer produce is in! With your weekly produce box, healthy, on-the-go snacking is easy. Check out our tips:
1. Take a smoothie to go.
Combine summer fruits like blueberries, blackberries with kale from your Produce Box for a delicious and nutritious snack to take in the car. Blend ingredients with a bit of yogurt or milk and pour into a reusable cup with a lid and straw before you head out the door.
2. Pack fruits that you can eat whole.
Blueberries are easy to eat whole. Simply wash them right before you leave, dry them and pack them in a container in your purse to eat on the go. Even better, no trash or mess to clean up!
3. Cut up raw veggies.
Carrots, cucumbers and zucchini can all be very yummy when they’re raw! Raw vegetables require minimal time and preparation and are easy for the on-the-go snacker. Slice into sticks, put in a small container and stick them in your purse.
4. Prepare individual servings of dips.
Hummus, yogurt dip or even peanut butter can be a fulfilling snack when paired with fruits and veggies when you’re out and about. Pick one night a week where you make your hummus and package single servings in small containers so you’ll have snacks ready to go at a moment’s notice.
