Healthier Summer Snacks and Drinks

Since it is August 1st, I am sure you have had your fill of hot dogs, hamburgers, and potato chips. You might be craving something a little healthier in terms of snacks and drinks. Here are three of my top picks to up your energy, lower your sugar and consume premium ingredients.

Brainiac Brain Bars

Brainiac provides the brain fuel needed in foods families love to eat. The line includes applesauce and fruit pouches, bars, nut butters and more that combine premium and clean ingredients with grab-and-go convenience while promoting brain health, boosting immunity and more.

At the core of Brainiac Foods is the BrainPack, a combination of Omega-3s (ALA, DHA and EPA), choline, and lutein that support brain health. These essential nutrients power memory, focus, and brain adaptability, regulate our moods, help with attention and focus, and are critical for development. These are critical nutrients that most of us aren’t getting enough of because they come from things like Salmon, Flax, Eggs, and Leafy Grains. Simply put, Brainiac ignites the power of the brain by making everyday foods smarter.

Celsius

Celsius is a better-for-you energy drink, which is a premium alternative to traditional energy drinks. If you are like me and crash around 2 or 3 in the afternoon, this is the perfect pick-me-up to give the extra boost you need to finish up the day. I love that Celsius has zero sugar, 7 essential vitamins and is made with ingredients like ginger, green tea and guarana.

It is also ideal for adding a kick to your workout routine- it is clinically proven to accelerate your metabolism and has calorie-burning properties.

Quest Protein Chips

Quest Tortilla Style Protein Chips are crunchy chips seasoned with delicious flavors that offer both the protein AND the taste that you enjoy. My children and I are salty snack and chip fiends, but I know how unhealthy traditional tortilla chips are.

This summer, I’m excited to share with you my favorite protein chips that offer both the protein AND the taste that you enjoy. Quest Tortilla Style Protein Chips are crunchy chips seasoned with delicious flavors including Nacho Cheese, Chili Lime and Loaded Taco.

Quest’s baked tortilla chips offer up to 20g protein with 3-4g net carbs and 1g of sugar or less. To put it in perspective, an egg has only 6g of protein!

Cheers to finding products that you can grab on the go and not feel guilty about!
