Eating healthy at home is hard enough for some people not to mention when you’re on the go. I am always looking for alternatives to the carb-heavy meals that are typically more convenient on the road. These cereals, oatmeal, and granola come in individual containers that can be stuffed into your briefcase or suitcase to enjoy when you’re traveling.
There are so many interesting flavors, and they are packed with nutrient-dense ingredients like quinoa, nuts, and flax and chia seeds. They are also Non-GMO Project verified and Whole Grain Stamp approved.
For each serving purchased, the The Soulfull Project donates a serving of their 4 Grain Blend to a food bank in that region. I really like the fact that the donation is to a food bank in your area; the company partners with more than 200 across the country.
The owners used to work for Campbell’s Soup Company and regularly visited people in their homes to learn more about the foods customers liked to eat. It was during that experience that they realized the levels of poverty in many American neighborhoods and families with little to eat. They wanted to be able to provide nutritious and wholesome food to everyone even if they couldn’t afford it, and this buy one, give one concept does just that.
Of course, you can find these in grocery stores, but they are also available at CIBO Gourmet Express Markets in many airports. That’s especially convenient if you can grab one each time you want one instead of carrying several with you in your bag like I did. On the plane, I had no problem asking flight attendants for hot water to add to this, which was a healthy alternative to what was being served on board (just don’t forget a plastic spoon).
