FRUITS & FREEZE-DRIED FRUITS
Look for fruits that are firm and not too juicy (so they won't get squished in your bag or be messy to eat!), and seek out ones that don't require a lot of complicated peeling or deseeding. Here are a few of our favorite fruity picks...
HG Tip!Pack your produce pal in a small sealable baggie -- that way you can easily store the core or peel if you can't get to a trashcan right away.
Kick a candy craving to the curb with a purse-friendly, portion-controlled sucker. Stuff on a stick ROCKS! We heart these...
