THE PACK

While this waist pack is a bit of an investment, we believe it’s worth it. Coming in at just 13 ounces, this pack has a built-in Hydrapack® so you won’t have to carry a water bottle and there’s also plenty of room everything else you need. If you do prefer a backpack, we love this North Face lightweight backpack.

APPLE SNACKS

Fruit is always a good idea. Add some fun to your apples with nut butter and cinnamon. Apples are rich in fiber and antioxidants. Cinnamon is a great antioxidant that also fights infections and peanut butter is awesome for your heart and is a great source of protein. You can also make apple sandwhiches with peanut butter, oats, and craisins for a fulfilling snack.
