5 On-The-Go Paleo Snacks + Wake Up Wednesday Linky

Today, I'd like to share my top go-to Paleo snacks for when I'm on the go. It's challenging sticking to a Paleo diet when away from home, but it can be done, with a little planning.

5 On-The-Go Paleo Snacks

5 On-The-Go Paleo Snacks

If you're like me, and like to eat something every few hours, or at least have a snack ready nearby, just in case, then this list is for you. These items can all be easily placed in a plastic bag or container and kept in your purse or travel bag.

1. Fruit - This is my ultimate go-to. How easy is it to pack an organic apple with you? Easy-peasy. But apples aren't the only fruit that can be portable. Bananas and organic pears are other great options, as well as organic berries - strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. The berries will require a plastic bag or container, but still quick and easy to throw together.

2. Nuts/Seeds - Almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, etc., are all great snacks, and they're packed with nutrition to keep you going. I often keep a bag of almonds in my car for a quick snack.

3. Boiled Eggs - This requires some planning, and possible refrigeration if going to be away from home long, but it's the ultimate protein snack. Yes, it's a bit random to chow down on a boiled egg or two, but this snack will definitely tide you over until your next meal. I like to boil about 6 to 8 eggs on Sunday night to have as snacks throughout the week. Word to the wise: boiled eggs smell, well, like eggs. So you might not want to take them, say, into a movie theater as a snack. ;-) Just keep them in the shell until ready to eat and they will last a good day without refrigeration.

4. Larabars - I love Larabars, and they are one of the only foods I buy packaged. Larabars are made with whole ingredients, like dates, nuts, coconut and dried fruits. A variety of flavors are available, however, not all of them are Paleo. If they contain peanuts or chocolate, they are not considered Paleo. I love the coconut cream pie and cashew cookie flavors, which are Paleo-friendly. I wouldn't recommend having a Larabar everyday - just when you're in a hurry and need a quick snack.

5. Sweet Potato/Kale Chips - Homemade sweet potato and kale chips are excellent snacks. Yes, you can purchase these at the grocery or health food store, but check the ingredient list first! Some brands aren't technically Paleo because of the oils used to bake them, or added ingredients. Terra Sweet Potato and Root Chips are good options, on occasion. But it's really best to make them at home, so you can control all of the added ingredients. Here are a couple of excellent tutorials on making your own sweet potato chips and kale chips.

Today I want to share my front porch with you. My accessories have both complimenting and contrasting colors in them. I wanted them to work with my house color (Cabot exterior latex stain in Spruce Blue.) and not clash.

Even though my Peach Cobbler was a failure this week, living in Georgia: I HAVE to can peaches each year. Now, we have a ton of Summer Georgia Peaches for the next few seasons thanks to successful canning.

Sometimes I feel like the recipes I share with you guys are too simple and too fast to 
call them recipes. Today is one of those days.

A trip to the thrift store with my daughter yielded supplies for a quick garden project.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza
from Upstate Ramblings
Slice of Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza
Pizza makes an good family dinner, because it is not only quick to make it is cost effective too.  But always serving cheese pizza is boring, so I like to change it up with some different toppings.  A few weeks ago I made Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza, and the family loved it!

Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos Recipe
from A Mom's Take
Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos
While I grew up eating what I now refer to as the American version of a beef taco, I found as an adult that I much prefer the milder flavor and taste of a traditional shredded beef taco.

DIY Citrus Avocado Face Mask
from Robyn's View

Another baby boy was born on the very day I posted a picture of a home made soft ball  I had sewn for my nephew. A perfect opportunity to sew another one, don't you think? This time, I added several loops.

  1. Great choices! Fruit and almond packs are always my go to's :)

  2. I don't stick to a Paleo diet, but your suggestions are great for healthy alternatives to my normal snacks of chips or cookies :)

  3. These are great snacks! I love boiling eggs and having them as a go-to snack. The protein really fills me up!

  4. Fruit and nuts are carried in my purse at all times - we are on such a strict eating plan, that those are the only things I can eat :/
