Ever wondered what the best snack food is for your adventuring?
By adventuring, I’m talking about hiking, sailing, kayaking, cycling, camping, 4WDing, or exercising – anything in the great outdoors!
Think of snacks that are quick and easy to handle. You need slow releasing healthy fats, as well as proteins to keep your tummy feeling full without bloating or slowing you down. A mood-boosting sweet hit is also super great to keep your mind sharp and focused.
Lets discuss the TOP FIVE snacks to take on your next adventure.
An excellent on-the-go snack to fuel your adventure!
· They are packed with tons of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, which keep you feeling fuller for longer, and release energy slowly.
· They have antioxidant properties, so when those tired, aching legs are holding you back, antioxidants eliminate the free radicals caused by exertion, allowing you to power through.
· They are high in the trace mineral copper, which boosts energy and assists with nervous system function.
An excellent accompaniment to your cashews!
· Almonds are high in protein, when you are hungry and on the go with no time to stop your adventuring, almonds will fill you up and keep the hunger pangs at bay.
