Last week I was speaking to an international group of corporate VP’s about how to refuel your body for energy. Someone asked about packing healthful bars and I offered a list of my favorite bars including Lara, Kashi, and Balance.
Many of these attendees had this look on their face like, “Huh?” because these very-American bars are often not readily available in their countries. So we started brainstorming. If you don’t have refrigeration and you prefer not to find rotten fruit squished in the bottom of your briefcase, the easiest foods to carry are dried fruit and nuts. Select fruits that are naturally dried without added ingredients (dried banana chips are loaded with added sugar and coconut fat…very high in calories!). For nuts, vary it up…almonds, walnuts, peanuts, macadamia, cashew…and don’t forget pistachios! Check out this information from PistchioHealth.com.
