5 Healthy Snack Options for On-the-Go Moms ~ #StoredBrilliantly

When you're go, go, go, you need snacks that are going to keep up with you. Here are 5 healthy snack options for your busy lifestyle.

My life is a constant go, go, go! There are days when I get very little sleep, and it's not because I don't want to sleep, but because there are deadlines that need to be met and I have to get them done. As a mother, sometimes it seems as though my day is never done, and there are never enough hours and minutes in the day. I try and eat as healthy as I can, but there are days when the junk food, meaning chocolate, cookies and chips get in the way. Lately, with me wanting to live a healthier lifestyle for not just me, but for my kids, I have been trying to eat a lot healthier and have been keeping healthier options on hand. So what are a few of my options. Today I want to share 5 with you and how I keep them all fresh and ready to go with the new Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Salad & Snack Set.

Cereal isn't just for kids. Since most cereals are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals, and are even high in fiber, these make for not only a yummy snack, but sometimes a flavorful one too. I just love the ones with added nut clusters. However, stay away from the very sugar cereals, you know which ones I'm taking about.

Who doesn't love fruits? Toss a few fruits in a bag and you can snack on them all throughout the day. They're my go to whenever I want that bit of sugar, instead of eating candy. There are so many reasons to eat fruits, but you can also get your 2 daily servings of fruit this way by snacking. I personally love snacking on grapes with some added cheese.

Speaking of cheese, cheese is also another healthy snack option. You can either do individually wrapped or string cheese. Who said that string cheese was just for kids? It's also a great source of protein and calcium.

According to the food chart, you should have a 3 healthy serving of veggies daily. Carrots, broccoli, edamame, tomatoes and celery are just some healthy and safe options for you to eat raw. Together with a yogurt dip and you have a snacking option that is just good for you.

Unless you have a nut allergy of course. Nuts such as almonds and walnuts, are generally rich in healthy fats thus allowing you to have that feeling of fullness for much longer, curbing your need to consistently snack between meals. They are also known to boost your good cholesterol, are a healthy servings of minerals and omega-3s, and are best when raw.

How do you keep it all together and fresh? 

I use the new Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Salad and Snack Set.

The new Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE is the perfect container for ready-to-go meals and snacks. It comes complete with customizable insert trays and dividers, which is perfect for those like me who would prefer to separate their food. It is the all-in-one solution for not only taking lunch on the go but great for snacks too. My favorite feature would have to be the salad container which I use for my veggies. It comes with a mini dressing container which includes a lid. I can place my dip in the container and keep my veggies in their separate compartment when its time to eat.

The new Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Snack & Salad set is also 100% Leak-Proof Guaranteed*. The airtight latches keeps the container tightly secured with no leaks or messes. The ultra durable Tritan material keeps the container both stain and odor free and clean up is a breeze as it's dishwasher safe. Don't worry, since it's BPA free, you can also microwave and freeze your meals in the containers. They are very portable and I can totally see myself snacking so much more healthier. What about you?
