8 Healthy On-the-Go Summer Snacks
| Sarah Rotavera | June 6, 2018 |
Who’s excited for summer travel plans? We’ve got a few road trips coming up soon and I’m all about packing healthy snacks to make sure we stay properly fueled during our travels.
With that in mind, I’ve put together a round-up for you guys of my favorite on-the-go summer snack recipes. In addition to snacks, I always make sure to bring my supplements because our diet usually takes a hit whenever we travel. For our upcoming trip I plan to pack an exciting new product that my friends over at MegaFood® just released this month: Gummy Vitamins!
8 Healthy Summer Snacks + MegaFood Gummy Vitamins
If you follow MegaFood on Facebook or Instagram then you’ve probably heard about the gummy vitamins already. They’ve been working so hard to involve consumers in developing a product that they know you can trust and will be satisfied with. Let me tell you, they definitely delivered!
Unlike other gummy vitamins, MegaFood formulated theirs without any of the common undesirable ingredients, such as high-fructose corn syrup, gelatin, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives of any kind. Plus no gluten, dairy or soy.
Not only are they vegetarian but MegaFood is the first supplement brand to have its entire line of products, gummies included, certified Glyphosate Residue Free. Glyphosate, based on government limit of detection protocols, is the number one herbicide used in the United States. It has been identified as "probably carcinogenic to humans" by WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer.
What I love most about the gummy vitamins is that they are made with real, whole food ingredients that you can actually see and taste. I actually had to keep Brandon from eating all of them so that I could take the photos for this post!
MegaFood introduced 4 flavors highlighting what I consider to be the most vital nutrients to take in supplement form:
- B-12 Energy Cranberry
- D3 Wellness Mixed Fruit
- C Defense Tangy Citrus
- B12 Energy Ginger (my personal favorite!)
Whether you’re tired of taking pills or just want something that’s easy to throw in your summer travel bag, MegaFood gummy vitamins are the perfect way to make taking your vitamins easy and enjoyable!
