Portable Snacking Tips and Ideas

How many times have we skipped a meal all because we’re rushing to meet a deadline, or rushing to reach somewhere on time? Sometimes all we can grab is a snack on the go. But are you grabbing a healthy snack? That is one point that’s often overlooked when we’re strapped on time. Here is a list of healthy easy-to-do and on-the-go snacks that you can consider packing into your lunchbox. Some of them might need some thinking ahead but your body would be grateful for it.

  • Celery sticks with peanut butter and several raisins on top
  • Rice cakes with peanut butter (good for getting a protein punch)
  • Low-fat cheese cubes
  • Hardboiled eggs
  • Fruit yogurt cup (add in some fresh fruits or nuts for a boost – can be kept in the office pantry)
  • Trail mix
  • Vegetable sticks with a little packet of dip (lowfat salad dressing packets found in salad bars work as easy-to-pack dip)
  • Broccoli or cauliflower bites
  • Half of a turkey or tuna sandwich on whole-wheat bread
  • Yogurt and granola
  • Leftover chicken or turkey slices (great to eat cold)
  • Healthy fiber-rich or grain cereal (great to eat dry from a baggie)
  • Box of raisins or other dried fruit
  • Half a large whole wheat bagel with light cream cheese
  • Apples, bananas, strawberries (any fruit works, these are naturally portable)
  • Mixed berries (these freeze well in plastic bags)
  • Whole-wheat crackers and low-fat string cheese
  • Grapes in a baggie
  • Fruit smoothie in a thermos
  • Tuna and cottage cheese in mini-containers
  • Avocado with tuna and chickpeas
  • Banana with cinnamon and peanut butter wrap
  • Garlic baked sweet potato

The trick here is to think ahead and be prepared. Do your grocery shopping on the weekend so you can get your fresh fruits and vegetables ready for the week. Eventually you will notice that you’re replacing some unhealthy stuffs with healthier ones. Similar with prep meals, these can be done the night before so all you have to do the next morning is grab-and-go!

Until then, enjoys!
