As a busy work from home mama, I am always short on time. It sounds cliche, but there really aren't enough hours in the day. Haha! I have a bunch of balls in the air at all times, which is frankly how I like it, but it means that I don't necessarily have time to fix gourmet meals for myself...especially during the day. I'm on the move constantly. Whether I'm at a photo shoot, shopping for post supplies or picking my kiddo from school, I'm out and about a good majority of my week, so I have to be able to turn to snacks to help keep my energy up...and those snacks have to be portable.
Enter 7-Eleven...This convenience store that you know and love is always expanding their Fresh Foods line to offer a wider variety of better for you on-the-go options. And that speaks to this mama. Knowing that I can pop into one of my local 7-Eleven stores to pick up a quick, fresh snack is clutch. When I have to run from one commitment to another without much time in between, on the go snacks are where it's at!
I typically turn to some sort of protein and fruit. Here's a sampling of some of my go-to snacks...And they all can be found at 7-Eleven. Grapes and apples are super portable, making them perfect for when I'm on the go. So are string cheese and hard boiled eggs. And if you have a bit more time, an individual serving of hummus and pretzel crisps are a tasty option! Who doesn't love a little dipping action?
