Top 5 Healthy Nutritious Snacks
In today’s world, time moves quickly and we often run around with less fuel in our bodies than we should, pushing to do more, get more, experience more… We’ve put together a list of our Top 5 Healthy Nutritious Snacks for when you’re on-the-go and have to rush out the door!
Glukos Bars, Powder, Tablets, Gummies, Gel
I’m super impressed with the Glukos energy line of products. Easy to digest, keep very well under heat exposure and 100% all natural. Glukos (Glucose) is exactly what it sounds like, sugar. The sugar that your body eventually converts all your food into that your body absorbs for energy. The Glukos products are 100% all natural, Vegan, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Gluten Free, no caffeine, no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or color, No High-Fructose Corn Syrup…
The company produces a suite of energy products including: Glukos Powder, Tablets, Bars, Gummies, Gel and combo packs in various flavors. If you’re an athlete or just want to have energy like one, Glukos helps keep you going without any chemicals to make you jittery. They taste much better than popping a Glucose tablet making your mouth all pasty. Works better than a cup of coffee and gives great energy return. Excellent for athletes and even works well for diabetics and hypoglycemia! You can find a plethora of information about the science behind the Glykos products on their website glukosenergy.com.
*People with diabetes should consult their physician prior to altering their diet.
