There’s nothing worse than rushing around on an empty stomach — especially if you’ve got a big training day planned.
We know that not all of you have hours to spare creating perfectly macro-balanced protein balls rolled in crushed almonds and packed lovingly into a snack box, so we’re on hand to help you out when you (and your stomach) needs it most.
In fact, we know this feeling so well, that we’ve come up with 3 brand-new snacks to haul in the hangriness and keep you on top form until teatime. Why these 3? Because we think there are 3 times of the day when there’s just no making it through without a solid snack.
1. The breakfast-time rush
If you’re an early riser, you might love to squeeze in a workout before you head to the office. What you probably love a whole lot less is lasting the commute without a high-protein and carbohydrate snack.
Walking into the office after a workout and having to deal with your boss’s long list of to-do's is just a big no-no on an empty stomach. Before you let that stomach rumble echo across the office, you need to reach for an Oat Bake.
This tasty soft-baked bar makes the perfect morning snack, packing 18g of protein and only 3.8g of sugar to help keep you full until lunchtime hits.
Coming in two flavours — Chocolate Chip and Berry + White Choc Chip — this snack can be shoved into your bag and demolished at a moment’s notice to help you keep your macros and your morning on track.
2. The mid-afternoon slump
It’s 4 pm, you could quite happily finish for the day right now and the warm office is making it hard to keep your eyes open. You need something quick to mindlessly nibble on that’ll stop you diving headfirst into the office biscuit tin.
Once again, we’ve got the perfect answer — it’s time to add our Nuts Mix to your desk drawer snack stash.
Instead of crunching through bags of crisps, pull open a pack of these seasoned, savoury mixed nuts. Nuts offer a great, filling snack that is full to the brim with protein and healthy fats, perfecting for fuelling those gym gains.
Nuts Mix comes in three tasty flavours — Chilli & Lime, BBQ, and Sea Salt & Black Pepper — perfect for firing up your taste buds and boosting those late-afternoon energy levels.
3. When you simply can’t go on
Whether it’s to get you through the second half of your run or bike ride, or on your way to the gym after a long, hard slog of a day in the office — you need a bar that’s going to give you a boost.
We’ve got the perfect one to slip into your back pocket or training bag — the delicious Nuts Bar. This baked protein, nuts and seeds bar with a chocolate-flavoured drizzle not only feels like the ultimate treat for your taste buds and your body.
It’s packed with around 12g of protein and 7g of fibre — basically, this bar is going to fill you up and keep you going no matter what.
For all, you nut lovers, take a bite out of the Peanut Butter Nuts Bar, while all you sweet tooths won’t be able to get enough of the indulgent Salted Caramel flavour.
Take home message
If you’re on the go from the moment you wake up, then these quick, convenient snacks will not only keep you on track with your macros but get you through the toughest of days and still have you hitting your training hard at the end of it all.
