Healthy Food On The Go – Hummustir

For a long time the only hummus I could take on trips with me is Wild Garden’s – the only problem with them is that each container of hummus (a triangular package of sorts) is now combined with a small bag of chips…which I not only don’t want, but taste dreadful even in a pinch (I was reminded of First Communion and I have to say, I wasn’t happy about it!)  They *used* to sell just the hummus packages in one box – I guess it wasn’t working out financially for them. Ugh.

Anyway, the benefits of the Wild Garden that did work were that it is portable, doesn’t need refrigeration and…protein! However, it’s become harder to track down and…aforemention chips scenario.

To my great delight I’ve recently been alerted to a newbie travel chickpea snackum (not sold in my area but it IS on Amazon!) called Hummustir. This snazzy portable hummus also goes unrefrigerated, and can be mixed any time you darn well please (or, as the company puts it, “on demand.”)

The hummus comes in four flavors – Original (that would be my pick), a habanero-d Blazin’, a lime-n-garlic Mediterranean, and a creamy garlic and cumin variety called Village. I also love the minimal ingredient list!

Six Pack Black

It’s true that I lean a little bit goth.  I’m no overtly that way, save for my generally black attire, but I am a vamp at heart, and black is just what I gravitate towards.  

As it happens, black goes with EVERYTHING…so I personally feel like that’s justification enough!

Black one of those things – you can wake up and just not think about it.  When I worked in Fashion, I was simultaneously a competitive Ballroom dancer, which made for very long days and groggy mornings.  Black was simply the easiest

Black is incredibly chic – you can dress it up, dress it down, it jives either way.  Major points for the versatility there.

And…it’s slimming! 😀

In this case, however, it’s all about one of the best-selling bags from Six Pack Fitness.  I don’t have any of their bags (yet!) but I absolutely want one – I take snacks EVERYWHERE.  Their bags make staying healthy on the go incredibly easy, so even if you aren’t into the fitness arena, you may just want to pack healthy foods for you, or your loved ones!

Six Pack just came out with a black-out version of the Expedition Bags (the 300 and the 500).  I love the Red and Grey also, and the Pink is incredibly fun…

But this colorway is called “Stealth.”  Since I have a not-so-secret desire to be a ninja…I kind of want it for that alone! (Don’t judge!)

It’s kind of like the Darth Vader of snack bags.  

It really doesn’t get a lot cooler than that for eating on the go…
