healthy food choices at the convenience store

Eating healthy is something that many of us try to do but failing to accomplish. Why? One of the biggest reasons across the board is that most of us simply don’t have the time or energy. When faced with the choice of a quick drive-thru dinner or going hungry, most of us will choose the former option and hope to do better tomorrow. What if you could have a few options for food and beverages that you could grab quickly on your way to your next meeting or errand? Here are a few examples of healthy options for food and beverages that you can find at your local convenience store.

  • Prepacked nuts or dried fruit. While these options can be high in salt or sugar content, when they are prepackaged into smaller options, you don’t need to worry as much about over-eating since the portions are already set for you.
  • Protein shakes. The ideal protein shake should have less than a gram of sugar per serving, so read the label carefully. In a pinch, a protein shake from a convenience store can stave off hunger so that you’ll be able to make better choices down the road instead of eating whatever you can get your hands on.
  • Bottled water. Being properly hydrated is important for your health. Bottled water is a great alternative choice that is readily available at a convenience store.
  • Fruits. Most convenience stores offer a few fruit selections. Grab one with a bottle of water and pack of nuts for a well-rounded snack.
