Porta-superfoods

For people who are always on the go, processed foods and junk foods are what they usually eat because these are the easiest to prepare. Other times, they end up eating at fast food joints which is not good either. You can still eat healthy foods even if you are always running or on the move. Here's a list of stress- and mess-free portable superfoods that are not only healthy but will give you a day full of energy.

Hard-boiled egg. This high-protein source of all-day energy can travel at room temperature and helps release feel-good endorphins when you eat it.

Cheese and Whole-grain crackers. This classic combination of whole grains and protein provides a great side dish to a green salad. Just make sure the crackers are free of hydrogenated oils.

Leafy greens. Greens travel well at room temperature. To keep them crisp in transit, wash them right before you pack them, and wrap them in a cloth napkin.

Quinoa. This delicious and healthy grain can be eaten cold or at room temperature. Add a few steamed or sauteed vegetables to it for a quick and healthy salad.

Avocado. You can carry this fruit whole and then slice it in half when you're ready to eat it. If you only eat half, sprinkle the other half with lemon juice - it helps prevent the flesh from turning brown.

Edamame. These soy beans are a complete protein and contain folic acid. You can buy them fresh or frozen; steam them still in the pod then add a little pinch of salt.

Granola with almonds and/or walnuts. This combination of grains and healthy fats can last for a week in a sealed container. Top it with fresh sliced bananas for mood-boosting potassium.

Soy beans and the lovely avocado are definitely two of my favorites.

It all sounds yumboza, but these days I try to steer clear of meet and dairy products. I love the rest of the stuff though. Good advice.

Happy trails.

I stopping by to say hi to all my favourite blogs. So hi! What a great list of portable superfoods. I would have thought hard boiled eggs would need to be kept cool so this is a great tip. I had not heard of edamame either so that's something I will be looking for. I've never seen them in our grocery stores so perhaps the health food store will have them.
