14 Healthy On-the-Go Snacks

Sep 18 2019
Question@2x Hi Hungry Girl,

I’m on the go A LOT, and I need single-serving snacks that don’t need to be refrigerated. Do you have any suggestions?

Answer@2x Hi Annie,

I’m all about the “emergency snacks” -- grab & go hunger busters to keep me satisfied between meals. Here are a few of my favorites, each with 200 calories or less…

Crispy, Crunchy

Ditch the potato chips in favor of these better-for-you snacks. When fresh veggies aren’t practical, reach for crunchy sticks made from REAL veggies or chips made from jicama!

Make Mine Meat

Meat snacks have come a long way since the days of convenience-store Slim Jims. The texture, flavor, and nutrition are better than ever. I especially love the Vermont Smoke & Cure lineup, which includes minis with less than 50 calories each!

The Sweet Spot

Chocolates melt and don’t fill you up, but these no-melt sweet treats are here to satisfy. They’re pre-portioned, so you can eat the entire package. No guilt, no counting pieces, just indulging! I also carry sturdy fruits like apples and oranges for a burst of sweetness straight from nature.

Raise the Bar

Many protein bars are more like meal replacements than snacks. Not these picks! The GoodTo Go bars can be easily split into four individual pieces, perfect for all-day snacking. (I love ‘em so much, I made a video all about ‘em!)
