Picture this: you’re at the train station, your tummy rumbles and you haven’t got any healthy snacks packed. You could go for take-away fast food, but as you want to sustain your healthy lifestyle, you prefer a healthy option. In this article I have listed 7 of my favorite healthy snacks that you can buy at the bigger Dutch NS train stations at AH To Go to help you sustain your healthy lifestyle.
AH To Go offers several options for fresh fruit, such as grapes, strawberries, apples and banana. Banana is my favorite healthy snack. And no, they do not make you gain weight.
DIP Rode Paprika with Baba Ganush
(red bell pepper with baba ganush)
Red bell contains lots of vitamin C, more than an orange. Make your chrispy bell pepper snack tastier with a baba ganush dip. Baba ganush is pureed roasted eggplant with garlic and spices.
Näk’d Pecan Pie
The best bars they have, if it’s up to me. If you have never tried Näk’d yet, you really should! They are made from dried fruits and nuts. My favorite flavor pecan pie is made from dates, almonds and cashews. All Näk’d bars are gluten, wheat and dairy free. Psst: if you like raw date bars, you should check out my recipe for raw date energy bars.
AH to Go has a few lovely small salads in its assortment, such as this quinoa salad with green bell pepper and broccoli. In the package you’ll find a cup of lemon-coriander dressing and a bag of almonds and dried blueberries to garnish.
Fresh & crispy coconut
A package of healthy fats (omega 3) by means of a tropical surprise. Need I say more?
These corn waffles (the same as rice cakes, but made from corn) are packed by 2 and made from organic corn. The chocolate layer makes them extra tasty. Note that the chocolate layer is not lactose free, as is consists of 18% milk powder. The layer is very thin though, so chances are great that if you are lactose intolerant, you can eat them without any problems.
MIX Walnoot en Cranberry
(walnut & cranberry)
Brain food! A hand-full of walnuts a day contributes to brain health and is beneficial for PMS complaints. Cranberries are full of vitamin C and are beneficial if you suffer from regular urinary infections. Fibers are beneficial for digestion and intestinal health in general.
