What Snacks Should You Pack for Your Next Adventure
When heading out on the trail you’re probably keeping proper hydration in mind, but are you also thinking about staying fueled during your trip? Without proper nutrition you might end up fatigued, light-headed, nauseous, or dizzy during a workout. If you’re going out for prolonged activity, snack breaks are key to keeping your energy up and fueling your body properly.
During a workout or a hike, you want simple, easy snacks that can replenish carbs and sugars in your body to keep you going. Mix in some protein on hard days, and make sure you’re getting in some fuel each hour you’re on the trail. Here are some snacks to stash in your pack or pockets for easy grab-and-eat nutrition:
- Energy Gels
- Homemade Cookies
- Pretzels and Peanut Butter
- Cheese and Crackers
- Protein Bar
- Bagel and Cream Cheese
- Energy Balls
- Mini Candy Bar
- Organic Nut Butter Cups
- Trail Mix with Nuts and Something Sweet
Bring a snack along on your next adventure if you tend to lose steam and feel hungry halfway through. Choose real ingredients and simple flavors that go down easy while mid-workout. And don’t forget to hydrate!
