Gearing up for Fashion Week! Top Picks for On-the-Go Snacks

Back in March I attended a brand-to-press networking event - Editor Showcase: Modern Moms. The press event featured lifestyle, nutrition and parent-centric brands. Now not being a mom, I really wondered how this event would benefit me, but I am really glad I attended because I got to meet up with some great brands that make wonderful snacks for someone on-the-go like me.

With fashion week just a few weeks away, it's time to think about what snacks I can carry around with me, since I may barely eat within a 12-hour time frame of running back and forth between work and fashion shows. So here are my top picks for fun snacks:

Sun Maid offers a variety of raisins and dried fruit snacks, with one of my favorites being Mixed Fruit (sweet apricots, moist plums, tasty pears, and tart apples). It's a great way to add more fiber and antioxidants to your diet!

Crispy Green makes 100% freeze-dried fruit snacks with no additives or preservatives. Each bag contains approximately one serving of fruit. You can choose from Crispy Apples, Asian Pears, Bananas, Mangoes or Pineapples.

Crispy Green also makes Fruitzio snacks - which are all natural and freeze dried, with just a hint of sugar. These snacks are light, sweet and crunchy. They also have no additives or preservatives, have zero fat and cholesterol. Each bag contains approximately 2.5 servings of fruit.

SOYJOY bars have been my favorite for quite some time now. By September, SOYJOY's current flavors - Blueberry (newest flavor), Strawberry, Apple Walnut, Berry and Mango Coconut will hit stores in a new lighter, moisture texture, and an enhanced fruit flavor. I'm excited for the launch of Banana SOYJOY, available in October. SOYJOY has all-natural, minimally processed ingredients, like ground whole soybeans and real fruit. It's completely free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, artificial colors and flavors, preservatives, and chemical additives.

Pillsbury Bite-Size Brownies are quite addictive! These ready-to-eat mini brownies are filled with gooey caramel or fudge, covered in a chocolatey shell. Try not to eat the whole bag at once though! There are 60 calories per brownie.
