P.S you can find raw nuts in the bulk sections of organic grocery stores, I always keep these in glass canisters on my counter; easy to reach and throw in what ever meal I am preparing.

You can also find yummy granolas in this section which make a great addition to the Throw-Yo-Go. Just read the labels and avoid granolas sweetend with sugar. I choose the honey or maple syrup sweeteners. You can always just make sure the sugar content is no more than 6g per serving.
Notes:

Yogurt- MUST be organic or local. Choose cow, goat, almond, coconut; as long as it has the most probiotics and healthy active bacteria, go for it. I choose plain because the flavored kind usually have the sugar content of ice cream!

Yogurt is full of calcium and other minerals. It creates a healthy gut which is connected to all you bodily functions most importantly your brain activity. It aids in the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

The probiotics boost the immune system, sets a healthy digestive track, and discourages infections.

Berries and Fruits of your choice: Berries are an excellent source of antioxidants, and most fruits are full of vitamins!

Walnuts- protein and a great source of omega 3= BRAIN FOOD!!

Pumpkin Seeds- High in magnesium, zinc, omega 3, and a great source of protein=balanced blood sugar=stable energy!

Flaxseed Meal- Clears digestive track, omega 3 source, and an ANTI DEPRESSANT due to docosahexaenoic and eicosapentanoic acids it contains.

Coconut oil- cleans thyroid which boosts metabolism.

 

Eat at home, or take it in a jar to eat at work!!

YUM!!!
