Cravings on your commute? Don’t get hangry. Plan a healthy snack.
Instead of hitting a drive-thru or battling traffic with a growling tummy (which tends to make anger levels rise) enjoy a healthy snack before you set out on your way home.
7 snacks to try before your commute (not all at once)
Cheese and crackers
Seed or nut bar
Whole grain granola or cereal bar
Veggies and dip
Quench Your Thirst
Before you get in the car, on the bus or start your walk home – hydrate! Staying hydrated can help you feel energized! Best picks: water. Green, black or herbal tea. Decaf latte. Don’t add sugar!
Having a healthy snack before your commute home can help you get there in a better mood and also help you avoid overeating when you walk in the door.
