The vending machine is not your friend. For an afternoon pick-me-up, grab one of these healthy snacks. They have the power to push you through your workday—and evening workout.
1. Natural All-Day Energy
Cherrish Tart Cherry Juice
[$26 for 6; cherrish.net]
2. Hidden Veggies
Ark Foods Cauli Mac + Cheese
Tastier than a bag of crudités, this is a great way to crowbar extra veg into your diet. The 140-calorie heat-and-eat dish has a big helping of vitamin C and fiber. For best results, add hot sauce.
3. Red Meat Swap
Pan’s Mushroom Jerky
If lunch was heavy on animal protein, opt for a light, nutritious snack. Mushrooms are meaty and carry umami flavor, making them a good stand-in for beef. Plus, ’shrooms contain more filling fiber.
4. Low Carb Crunch
Flock Rotisserie Chicken Chips
Great for people watching carbs, a 170-calorie bag has 12 grams of protein and no sugar. They’re made from chicken skins, and a portion of proceeds go to hunger nonprofit Heifer International.
5. Pescatarian Protein
Goodfish Crispy Salmon Skins
Environmentally friendly, these chips use Alaskan salmon skins that are a by-product of fishing. They undergo a proprietary frying process to retain omega-3 fat, which cold-water fish are coveted for.
