This list of snacks is perfect for both bringing to work and running errands. Each has a combination of nutrients to keep you going faster and stronger.

Apple with peanut butter. When an energy emergency strikes, grab n apple and smear some PB on, and all will be okay. Obviously. Peanut butter makes everything peanut better.
Popcorn. Isn’t life a movie? Get poppin’ to put some pep back in your step. Air pop some kernels with coconut oil to stretch out that boost of energy until your next full meal.
Veggies and hummus. Hummus is the glue that keeps soul together. Dunk veggies like carrot sticks, sliced bell peppers, or celery for a nutritious kick that will sustain you all the way to dinnertime.
Roasted chickpeas. Spice up your life with this super easy recipe. Season rinsed and drained chickpeas with coconut or olive oil, salt and pepper or seasoning of choice, and throw them in the oven for about 15 minutes at 450°F. You can thank me later.
Hard-boiled egg. Eggs are no yolk. They pack plenty of protein, as well as the vitamins needed for the body to produce energy. Hard-boiled eggs are easy to make in advance, store, and reach for as needed.
