Obviously, you want to make a healthy choice, but what’s actually healthy in there?
Well, here are some go-to gems that won’t make you feel gross or guilty afterward.
Fresh fruit like apples or bananas are strategically positioned by the register or in a basket. Otherwise, check out the trail mix and dried fruit section. The lower the sugar and salt content, the better.
Are there ripe avocados or good-looking cherry tomatoes on display? If so, they are perfect to have as a snack. Just give them a rinse first.
If nothing fresh can be found, your next best option is a granola or protein bar that has under 10 grams of sugar if possible.
Sometimes you can find a pre-packed tub of hummus and pretzels together. This is a great option because the hummus contains chickpeas, which are high in protein .
Gluten -free doesn’t always indicate “healthy.” However, many gluten-free products have semi-healthy ingredients such as plain popcorn with olive oil and sea salt.
These days coconut water can be found almost anywhere. Be sure to get an unflavored version or just opt for plain old water.
