We've all been there. You have been Christmas shopping ALL DAY and when you finally have a chance to sit down and eat your only option is usually the food court. No good, but because you have been running around all day you will almost settle for anything.
So, I recommend bringing a small something in your purse or pocket that will help you get through the day and not compromise your diet! Lately I have been bringing ProBar Protein bars from Whole Foods with me everywhere! At school, work, the gym, or just running errands! You never know when your appetite might get the best of you, so be prepared!
I really like this peanut butter one!
Usually, I just eat about half of the bar and save the rest for later or the next day! Since these are protein packed they tend to be a little up there on calories, but half should do you right!
My other favorite flavor is Koka Moka!
This one does have some chocolate in it, but it is perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth in the middle of the day along with keeping you full!
Hard boiled eggs or a pack of nuts are also great for your crazy shopping days!
Just think ahead and bring an easy snack so that you don't have to resort to fast, food court junk!
