3 Healthy Hacks for Fall (Using Snack Bars!)

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Nov 12, 2018 7:59:26 AM

They've saved you during a long car ride. They've been there for you at the start of a busy morning that's running late. And they've helped you summit your favorite hike feeling even better than when you started. Yep, the healthy convenience of energy bars is pretty awesome. But, as it turns out, these versatile snacks are even more useful than meets the eye!

When you choose a good energy bar, such as the Superfood+ varieties, which are made with clean ingredients and top-tier superfoods, you're getting an excellent array of nutrition in the form of a very delicious snack. Yet, this snack need not be destined to a lifetime of a la carte enjoyment. Believe it or not, energy bars make an ideal addition to all kinds of recipes – saving you time and boosting your nutrition in the process! Here are three of our favorite recipe hacks using Navitas Organics Superfood+ Snack Bars to create some new-and-improved meals.

Pump Up Parfaits
Everyone loves the layered, scoopable nature of a good breakfast or dessert parfait, but the empty-calorie cereals or high-sugar granolas that are layered into the mix can make quick work of short-changing your healthy efforts. Instead, using crumbled energy bars in their place, helps to compliment the yogurt and fruit often used, and efficiently ensures your creation is more nutritionally balanced: offering protein, good fats and bonus micronutrients. You can use almost any flavor of snack bar to create this effect, simply crumbling it into little bits by hand. One favorite is any chocolate-inclusive variety like Cacao Cranberry, which can give the most wholesome recipes an almost brownie sundae-like effect.

Sprinkle onto Salads
You wouldn't always think of putting something sweet with something savory like vegetables, but these opposite flavors are often used in tandem in fresh combinations like salads. Along the same lines as a sprinkle of dried fruit or candied nuts, breaking down an energy bar into small pieces and using it as a kind of chewy crouton can add loads of flavor, making your vegetables truly irresistible while sneaking in the superfoods, too. This is clearly a case where chocolate doesn't work as well, but all kinds of fruity varieties are particularly welcome! Try a salad of baby greens, quinoa, shaved carrots or beets, mixed in your favorite vinaigrette and finished with a Goji Acai bar sprinkled on top – shockingly good!

Create Cookies
This is one of my favorite hacks around the holidays and I've become accustomed to doing it every year. Instead of holiday cookies (or at least, in addition to an obligatory batch), take several snack bars and just roll them out into a quarter-inch layer with a rolling pin. Use small cookie cutters to stamp them into fun shapes and serve your snack-bar “cookies” alongside any holiday spread – a no-guilt way to get in the festive spirit while keeping your food choices as clean as they can be! With its malty flavor and Cacao-Nib studded texture, the Maca Maple Superfood+ Bar was practically born to become a “cookie.” And the Hemp Peanut variety makes a superior substitute for peanut butter cookie lovers, too!

What to Pack for a Healthy Vacation

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Aug 28, 2018 3:15:50 PM

You're relaxed, soaking up an exciting new environment and crossing off a destination from your travel bucket list. There's only one thing missing from this epic vacation: your healthy lifestyle.

Anyone who's enjoyed the energy, clarity and enhanced glow from a healthier set of proactive measures can attest the rewards (like waking up feeling rested) are far greater than the sacrifices (apologies, double-stuffed pizza crust). But, for all their perks, vacations are notorious for throwing off our rhythm of self-care. As a result, many people return from vacations feeling bloated, tired and even sick.

But, you certainly don't need to sacrifice the wellness you've earned to satisfy your travel bug. With just a bit of foresight, you can keep your healthy priorities in the forefront while fully embracing the experience for which you've set aside valuable time and money. Here's how:

Keep Clean…ish
Between airplanes, gas stations, public transportation and questionable hotel remotes, you can definitely count on being exposed to a lot of new germs and bugs while on the road. Think you'll be fine? The average person touches their face 16 times an hour. That's about 16 times too much of dirty handrail-to-face contact, if you ask me. To help keep the bugs at bay, try keeping a travel-sized container of antibacterial spray or gel with you. By applying the solution even just a few times a day, you can reduce your exposure (and your chances of getting sick) tremendously.

Plan for Sweat
Just because you're off the clock doesn't mean you have to fully give up your fitness. While most people don't look to turn their vacation into an epic workout regimen, a little bit of movement thrown into the schedule (or lack thereof) can actually increase your energy, enhance your mood and help you relax even more. So, make sure you pack at least one set of workout clothes to enjoy your favorite sport, such as practicing yoga, heading out for a brisk jog or jumping in some water for a refreshing swim.

BYOT
Bring Your Own Toiletries! While it can be tempting to just use the hotel's shampoo or pick up a bottle of insect repellent on site, your chances of finding an organic, green product to use are usually rather low. Keep the new chemicals and toxins you will inevitably expose your body to at a minimum by using your own tested varieties – you're much less likely to suffer from allergies and brain fog due to unknown sensitivities.

Pack a Smoothie Stash
Enjoying local cuisine of wherever you're traveling to is more than just a perk of traveling – it's a huge part of the experience! And by no means should you feel the need to give up the opportunity to try the delicious new fare. To keep your digestive system happy though, try to keep at least one meal out of the day similar to the routine you'd enjoy back at home. A great way to achieve this is through bringing a superfood blend – a great mix of balanced nutrient-dense foods – to make a quick smoothie in a shaker bottle. Navitas Organics’ Protein & Greens Essential Superfood Blend is unflavored, so you can easily combine it with whatever beverage you come across in your travels, and it’s lightweight so you can pack a whole bag to cover your entire trip.

…And Maybe Bring a Few Healthy Snacks, Too
The worst feeling on a trip is feeling starving while not being able to find something to eat. Packing a small collection of healthy superfood snacks like Goji Berries, nuts or snack bars can sometimes save the day – or at least, save you from hanger – while giving you a quick dose of healthy sustenance that will energize you on both a caloric and nutrient level.
