We can all agree that life is pretty busy, right? Even when we try to slow down, it often ends up becoming a balancing act. I have a continuous goal to slow down and enjoy life more, but it can be a constant struggle with the fast paced culture that we live in! Anyone with me?
Solution: find ways to make your every day processes smoother and work for the pace of YOUR life. This is actually one my goals for the new year! This can translate into several things and be incorporated into several areas of your life, but today we’re talking about making easy recipes and finding great snacks to take on-the-go. Specifically, we’re talking about easy healthy breakfast recipes and how to pack a go-bag for your busy day!
P.S: If you have tips for slowing down and organizing your life to create more space, I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
Easy Healthy Breakfast Recipes:
Starting the day off with a good breakfast is crucial for getting through a busy day! Especially when you know you’ll be on-the-go all day. Kick things off with one of these easy, healthy breakfast recipes, load your bag with healthy, wholesome snacks (learn about my favorites below), and you’re set for the day!
These oats are perfect for making the night before!
Tacos for breakfast? Yes, please! Perfect to fuel a busy day on-the-go!
This smoothie is so easy to make and loaded with nutrition!
I love making a big batch of this Muesli the night before and having it ready to go in the morning. Just add milk!
Overnight oats are always a great option, but especially when they taste as delicious as these Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats!
Finding Good Snacks To Take On-The-Go:
Currently obsessing over these NEW Nature Valley Soft-Baked Filled Squares and Layered Granola Nut Bars, and the more classic Protein Chewy Bars! Y’all, they’re SO good. They’re full of flavor (think the MOST chocolatey goodness) and a wonderful healthy option! Not to mention that they’re incredibly easy to take on-the-go. I buy mine at Walmart (in the snack aisle) and love keeping them in my purse (among many other things, of course).
Shopping List For An Easy Go-Bag:
Need a starting point for loading up a go-bag with the things you’ll need on a busy day? This is what I keep in my bag!
- Nature Valley Cocoa Peanut Butter Soft-Baked Filled Squares (also available in honey peanut butter)
- Nature Valley Almond Butter Chocolate Layered Bars (peanut butter chocolate variety available too)
- Nature Valley Protein Bars (we’re partial to the peanut butter dark chocolate – noticing a trend here?)
- Marketside Snack Packs
- Fruit (bananas, apples, berries)
- Equate ibuprofen
- Equate eye drops
- Hair Ties (must)

Staying fueled and on track is crucial for getting through busy days! And it’s also crucial in order to help you slow down in other areas of daily life. Head to your local Walmart, stock your bag with the things you need and on-the-go snacks, and you’ll be golden, friend!
