A HIP Snack Bag, Written by: Kayte Corrigan

imageIt’s apparent that our HIPsters are a high functioning group of people always on the go. In this juggling act we call life, we need the right fuel at the right times to keep all our balls in the air. Whether you’re eating clean for the challenge or look down the calendar at a busy week, here’s a list of our favorite snacks that require no refrigeration. Pack them the night before, have them by your side. It’s better to have them and not need them then need them and not have them. And if you don’t need them, keep them in the bag for the next day!

  • Cuties (pack 4 and share with a friend)
  • Hard Boiled Eggs (2 can make a quick lunch on the go)
  • Apple
  • Banana
  • Grapes
  • Carrot Sticks
  • Red, Yellow, Organge, Green Pepper Sticks
  • Celery (natural peanut butter with raisins “ants on a log” option)
