Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
With the hectic lifestyle most Americans lead, on-the-go food options are becoming more and more important. Many fast food options tend to be unhealthy and loaded with fat and sugars, while healthier options take too long for most American’s fast paced lifestyle. In this Appetite for Health Segment, NewsWatch takes a look at some healthy options for on-the-go Americans.
Julie Upton, MS, RD, CSSD and Katherine Brooking MS, RD share some healthy meals from one of their “go-to” places when they’re on-the-go, Starbucks. Starbucks Bistro Boxes are premium meals and snacks made of nutritious lean proteins, vegetables, fruits and whole grains. They come in handy, re-sealable packages with compartments that make it easy to see what you’re getting. There are eight different Bistro Boxes, all under 500 calories in both snack size portions and larger entrée size portions.
