KD Finds: Healthy Eating On the Go

We'll help you find time to fit healthy meals in your busy schedule. These five editor picks will help simplify your on-the-go eating routine.

1. Built Gourmet Getaway Lunch Tote and Bento Salad Bowl

Get in the habit of packing your own quick and healthy lunches.

We love these stylish neoprene lunch bags that are insulated to keep food cool for up to four hours. The lunch tote expands to fit a variety of containers but stores flat when empty, and the salad bowl is the perfect way to pack fresh greens. Plus, you can just stick them in the washing machine for easy clean up!

$25 for lunch tote and $22 for salad bowl; builtny.com

2. Escali Taso Mixing Bowl Scale

Use smart kitchen gadgets like this mixing bowl scale for quicker and healthier food prep.

This time-saving mixing bowl scale lets you mix, measure and pour from the same bowl. The tare feature allows you to continue adding and weighing ingredients in the same bowl, and there's even a smart function that allows you to measure common ingredients by volume.

3. Superfood chia

Try incorporating chia and other superfoods into your diet. Chia is a top trending health food that is packed with plant-based Omega-3, fiber, protein and antioxidants. These new all-natural chia products are perfect to grab and go, making it easy and tasty to get your superfood boost.

4. Cat Cora Olives Snack Pack

Replace junk food with healthy, wholesome snacks.

Chef and co-host of TV cooking reality show Around the World in 80 Plates Cat Cora is launching her new food line in June, and we're excited about these delicious gourmet olive snack packs. They contain just the right portion of naturally ripened, preservative-free olives and come in a handy re-sealable pouch, so you can get your Greek on anytime.

$3 each; Available starting June at Food Emporium stores.

5. Breville Compact Juice Extractor

Invest in a juicer to incorporate more apples, beets, leafy greens and other fruits and vegetables in your diet. To save on time, juice in bulk and store individual jars in the freezer, so you can grab one in the morning and let thaw for a mid-day pick-me-up.

Breville's countertop juicer wields a powerful cyclonic juicing system that's ten times faster than other systems, and the micro-mesh filter yields 30% more juice. You'll certainly get the most bang for your buck with this compact powerhouse.
