5 Healthy Snacks For Busy Women On The Go:
Snack 1: Green Juice
Delicious Green Juice
Green juices are the BEST snack. Why? because they’re full of so much living energy and enzymes. The best part is you can prepare the juice anywhere from 48-24 hrs in advance and still consume goodness. Of course nothing is as good as consuming freshly made juice, but you still get the benefits and energy from the juice made the night before.
How do you pack a juice on the go?
Simply prepare your green juice the night before and pour into a convenient water bottle. Sip on this when you need a snack, and you will absolutely amazing!
There are so many amazing juices you can make. My biggest recommendation is avoid adding fruit if possible. This isn’t essential, but fruits shouldn’t be juiced, as the natural sugars will send you through a high, then low because we have stripped the fibre from juicing.
The best fruits to use a lemons, limes, and even grapefruit. I also add a pinch of stevia, and fresh ginger to make it palatable, which is amazing!
Here’s my go to green juice. I implore you to try it!
1 cup broccoli
½ thumb size of ginger
1 cup celery
2 cups spinach
½ lebanese cucumber
2 medium carrots
1 cup kale
Pinch of stevia
5 ph drops
3 cups of alkaline water
1. Blend all ingredients (except ph drops) in powerful blender on high for 45 seconds, and then strain using a milk cloth.
2. Pour juice in a bottle and add ph drops.
Snack 2: Vegetable sticks
Healthy Veggie Sticks
Vegetable sticks are the easiest thing to prepare when you’re on the go. Vegetable sticks are high in fibre, living enzymes, minerals, and vitamins. All of which, gives you uplifting energy. The best thing is they’re quick to prepare, and just like the juice, if you’re short on time you can make them the night before.
The best types of veggies are always the most alkaline ones. This means carrots, celery, cucumber, capsicum, and cherry tomatoes are perfect to snack as you go.
Snack 3: Soaked Nuts

Nuts are a nutritional powerhouse, but in order in capitalize on their healthy benefits you’ll need to consume them the right way. Nuts can contain pesticides, and natural toxins that may harm us, which is why many experience issues or allergies from consuming nuts.
The benefits of soaking nuts as follows:
It removes anti-nutrients such as tannins, phytates, and goitrogens
It neutralizes enzyme inhibitors
It increases the content of vitamin B
It allows proteins to be readily available
It encourages the growth of good bacteria like lactobacilli, which is vital for intestinal and colon health
It promotes the growth of healthy enzymes, which is vital for healthy digestion
I would highly suggest purchasing organic, or pesticide free nuts. To soak your nuts simply fill a bowl with 1 part nuts, and 2 parts water, plus a pinch of mineral salt, such as celtic or himalayan, and allow it to sit for 12 hours.
The best nuts to consume are:
1. Soak ¼ cup of nuts with ½ cup of alkaline water, and pinch of sea salt, overnight (12 hours)
2. Rinse really well, and dry nuts before storing them in a container to enjoy on the go!
