It used to happen all too often, I’d be out and about running errands and hunger would strike. By nature I like to get on with my day and go from task to task, I’m a busy bee and checking things off my to-do list makes me a very happy gal. So, having to stop to pick up something to eat while I’m on the go would be a last option. Such a last option, that I used to just fight the hunger and continue with my errands until I got home, which wasn’t healthy and not fun!
I now avoid doing this by always having in either my handbag or car a wholesome snack to eat. Keyword: wholesome. My latest on the go snack has been Natural Delights Mini Medjools and they are as wholesome as they are delicious!
These Natural Delights Mini Medjools are a perfect snack because they are bite-sized, which means no mess since you can just pop them in your mouth and enjoy the chewy and sometimes crunchy texture too, depending on which flavor you choose.
Here are the Mini Medjools flavors:
- Coconut: Medjool dates and shredded coconut
- Cacao Pecan: Medjool dates, cacao, and pecans
- Sweet & Salty Almond: Medjool dates, sunflower seeds, almonds, dried cranberries, shredded coconut, almond butter, and chia seeds
- Organic Cranberry Pistachio: Medjool dates, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, pistachios, shredded coconut, chia seeds, and almond butter
- Organic Fruit & Nut: Medjool dates, sunflower seeds, almond butter, shredded coconut, dried cranberries, dried cherries, and chia seeds
- Organic Cacao Coconut: Medjool dates, sunflower seeds, almond butter, cacao powder, shredded coconut, dried cranberries, chia seeds, and cacao nibs
I love them ALL, but I think the Organic Cacao Coconut and Sweet & Salty Almond Mini Medjools are my favorites.
I also think the Organic Cacao Coconut and Cacao Pecan make great after meal sweet treats, since they both have that yummy cacao chocolatey flavor. The bite-size portion is just enough to satiate a sweet tooth while choosing a healthier option!
As I mentioned before, I’d consider these a wholesome snack, and filling my diet with as many wholesome meals and snacks as possible is a priority for me. These Mini Medjools contain healthy fats, iron, 3-4 grams of fiber and 1-3 grams of protein per serving. All this while tasting so good.
Snacks are an easy way to let a lot of unhealthy and processed foods into your everyday life, since we’re usually looking for convenience when it comes to snacking, especially while trying to quickly satisfy hunger while on the go. I’ve learned the best way to make sure my snacks are not just yummy, but also offer me nutrients, is to stock places like my pantry, car, purse and even office with these type of snacks. Making a wholesome snack just an arms reach away 😉
Many times on days I find myself with a long to-do list and lots of errands to run, I’m out the door bright and early with just enough time (and will power) to make my coffee. Luckily, these Natural Delights Mini Medjools also taste amazing with coffee. So I grab my coffee tumblr, my box of these Mini Medjools and I’ve got all I need to get my day going.
I also never leave home without my water bottle! This has been another healthy habit I’ve added to my on-the-go routine.
