Healthy Emergency Snacks

Let’s face it, it happens to the best of us. We head out the door with the best intentions of not straying from our eating healthy habits, we won’t go prepared with our own snacks this time because we’re only going to run one little errand. Four hours later, our errand isn’t complete and we’re STARVING. There are NO grocery stores in sight, nothing to get  a “healthy quick bite” except a 7-11 or a gas station. What to do? Well, thankfully, there are always good choices for healthy emergency snacks. Here are a few samples:
