It’s right around this time of year that I begin to realize I am slipping on my perennial New Year’s Resolution: to eat healthier. I start with the best of intentions, but my job gets crazy, the kids need help with homework, and ... it’s easy to slip.
I am always on the lookout for healthy, nutritious, delicious, AND fast alternatives to keep fueled on the go. But, having tried a lot of things, I’m pretty skeptical too. I’ve had the “power bars” that promise a full belly but turn out to be little bricks of sugar, the puffed rice concoctions that taste like cardboard, and the salads advertised as a full meal that don’t even get me through 2 p.m. without me raiding the vending machine. I won’t lie: there’s a part of me that wonders if it’s possible to eat right on the go and be satisfied.
