How to Find Snacks for Your Daily Routine

As someone who is on the go and out of my house anywhere from 6-14 hours most days, I am always looking for easy, portable, and healthy snack ideas. Sahale Snacks turns snacking from something that helps you get through the day into a reminder to enjoy and celebrate life. I’ve also found they work for a pre-run snack, if I’m in a pinch.

I remember listening to a pro athlete; I believe Kate Grace, say I will eat anything after a run even it’s unhealthy. I want to eat something before nothing. She meant if she had the choice to eat something unhealthy versus eating nothing, she would choose the unhealthy route every time.
A few years ago, I wasn’t the best at eating anything after a run. I would typically be on the go so that I would run, shower, leave my house, and by the time I knew it, it was 3 hours later, and I was hungry. It’s not a great habit to have.

The 30 Minute Rule:

You don’t have to be “super strict,” but you should have something within 30 minutes of a workout. Even if it’s an easy run, a weight lifting session, or cross-training. You don’t need to have a full meal but a snack important. If you’re on the go, packing something in your gym bag should become standard.

Keep in mind; I’m not a doctor, so what works for me might not work for you. Little known fact, is I do have a public health degree and took hours of nutrition classes in college.

Here is How I choose Snacks:

By now, most people know there are three macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Each are important for your body but in different ways.

Carbohydrates:
Runners need carbohydrates, and somewhere down the line, we forgot that. In fact, carbs should be 60-70% of your total fuel. Refueling with carbohydrates is the most important for those marathon training. If you look at the staple diet of most Olympian marathoners, it’s carbs. For long-distance running carbohydrates are the primary source of fuel.

Protein:
Most athletes are aware that protein is needed for muscle growth and repair.  When you run long distances, you break down muscle. Without protein, your muscle cannot rebuild. That being said, many people runners believe “the more protein, the better,” and that isn’t necessarily the case. Protein only needs to make up about 15% of the calories for the day

Fat:
Every runner needs fat, and it’s gotten a bad rap over the years.For any endurance athlete (runner, swimmer, cyclist), fat should be about 20-30% of your diet. You might be surprised to learn (I was a while back), that adding fat will allow your body to run longer.

A Few Reasons I like Sahale Snacks as a Brand:

•          Products are thoughtfully sourced and sustainable.
•          All Sahale Snacks products are made from high-quality ingredients.
•          Sahale Snacks are Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, No Artificial Preservatives or Artificial Sweeteners
•          For dry roasting, the majority is done by electricity roasting, glazing, and packaging. To minimize

Sahale Snack’s environmental footprint, they’ve partnered with the non-profit Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF). Sahale Snacks uses clean based energy.  The older I get, and the more I get into hiking, the more important that is to me.

If you are looking to try Sahale Snacks, you can use their product locator. There are several locations in the greater Philadelphia area.  You don’t have to be marathon training, and as my training cycle winds down, I still find myself enjoying Sahale Snacks.

Thank you Sahale Snacks for partnering. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Questions for you:
What are some of your favorite marathon training snacks? Or any snacks?
Have you tried Sahale Snacks before?

  1. I’ve seen these around! The small size-portion baggies are definitely the best so one doesn’t over eat! They look super delicious which is why I would be worried I would eat too many, LOL!

    • I like that they are also resealable so you don’t have to eat the entire package or find a way to store it.

    • I’ve been enjoying any of the coconut, although the chocolate and cherry is good as well.
