Working out will make you hungry. And with time and money increasingly rare, value-to-go is on everyone’s lips; those healthy and those not-so-much-but-sure-why-not? Here are my 10 top picks for healthy super foods that will curb your appetite without breaking the bank.

Naked Green Machine Super Food - SRP $2.49 - Now, this is a fruit juice; more than 2 apples, 1/2 a banana, kiwi, mango and pineapple, plus broccoli and spinach! It’s definitely green, but it tastes amazing. Don’t let the sugar content scare you; fruit contains sugar, even in its natural state. Enjoy! 
Why it is healthy: Provides daily vitamins and nutrients, won’t make you fat.

Vega Whole Food Optimizer - SRP $42.50 - You could quite possibly live on this supplement. The contents are staggering and it tastes delicious. 26g of protein, 15g of fiber, full serving of Maca (for testosterone), quality carbs including hemp and flax seeds, dairy free and 100% recommended daily intake of vitamins. Vega Whole Food Optimizer is a smoothie on its own, just mix with water or try mixing some in with yogurt as an afternoon snack. It’s worth every, single penny.

The price is also unbelievable.

One serving of Pacific Natural Foods Organic Almond Milk contains roughly a third of riboflavin, which has been shown to stimulate metabolism and ward of certain diseases. Have a glass with an apple.
