Contrary to popular belief, veggies don’t need any dressing up to make them taste good.
Nature has done that all by itself.
They are picked fresh from the earth filled with succulent taste.
The best vegetables that you can purchase are organic and found fresh in stores, at farmer’s markets, or even better, your own garden.
Vegetables can keep without freezing or refrigerating them which is good for snacking on the run.
If you are on the run or about to hit the road, you can grab a bag of veggies for the ride.
Turn vegetables into snack sized pieces by slicing them into sticks, cubes, or chips.
In this form, they are easier to manage.
Pack them in plastic bags or small containers and you are good to go.
There are many vegetables that you can prepare for a healthy on the go snack.
Carrots can be cut into sticks or chips.
Don’t waste time buying baby carrots because they are expensive and are not baby carrots at all.
It is easy enough to take a regular size carrot and fix it up.
The same goes for cucumbers, beets, peppers, squash, zucchini, and other rigid veggies.
Tomatoes are classified as fruits, but we will consider them vegetables here.
Many people just eat them like a fruit.
Add a pinch of salt and bite in.
You can even purchase the smaller versions like cherry or grape and simply pop them in your mouth as you ride.
Broccoli and cauliflower can also be eaten raw.
Celery is a good vegetable because it is filled with water and can relieve thirst and hunger at the same time.
What are vegetables without dip?
Dip adds a flavor to veggies and even kids who turn their noses up to vegetables will eat certain ones if they are dipped in something.
Many dips can be made at home with dry seasoning packets and a vegan sour cream or cream cheese.
For a different taste add your own fresh herbs.
Sweet dips, like yogurt based ones, are also good with veggie snacks.
Dip can be stored in a container or a two-piece salad bowl.
With the salad bowl, the dip doesn’t mix with the vegetables until you are ready to eat them.
Vegetables can be excellent snacks for those times when you are on the road and can’t get home to fix a complete meal.
They are healthier alternatives then chips and a candy bar.
Take them in the car, on the job, or outside for a quick energy pick me up.
No matter what way you choose to eat them, vegetables make healthy on the go snack foods for everyone.
