Shopping on Black Friday is not for the faint of heart. Crowded parking lots and long lines are the price savvy shoppers pay for holiday deals. It’s best to face the day with a full stomach and lots of stamina so keep your shopping day moving with snacks you can tote along the way.
Drink your calories and stay on the move with a refreshing antioxidant smoothie containing beets, cabbage, pears, and cherries.
The sweet and salty flavors of Sugared Pecans make them deliciously addictive so make a double-batch, one to take shopping and one to present to your favorite holiday hostess.
Elevate the experience of drinking coffee from a paper to-go cup by coupling it with Extreme Chocolate Biscotti. It is a decadent chocolate cookie made with rich cocoa powder and dark chocolate that will keep even the krankiest shopper smiling.
Granola is a favorite food for hikers because it is easy to carry and super nutritious, which also makes it ideal as a shopping pick me up. Maple syrup and dried cranberries give this Texas granola a festive flair.
Vodka optional? Maneet Chauhan’s Mango Vanilla Lassi will satisfy small cravings for those on the run.
Plan on making a double batch of Spicy Cheese Leaves too because while they are great for nibbling between shopping destinations, and they are also a go-to snack for your holiday soirée.
