22 On-the-Go Snacks Under 150 Calories

Sep 9 2016
Traveling with smart on-the-go snacks -- a.k.a. emergency snacks -- is a crucial part of healthy eating. Here are 22 of our recent favorites... Pack 'em up!

Protein Picks

Protein is important to your snack game, since it squashes hunger in no time flat. And we've got plenty of tasty suggestions that are loaded with protein. P.S. DiMario and Simply Snackin' are totally worth ordering online.

Emerald 100 Calorie Nuts

1 package: 100 calories, 8 - 9g total fat (0.5 - 1.5g sat. fat), 0 - 110mg sodium, 3 - 5g carbs, 1 - 2g fiber, 1g sugars, 3 - 4g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

Truth: 100-calorie packs of nuts are some of the most powerful tools in our emergency-snack arsenal. The portion-controlled source of healthy fats is a perfect way to shut down legitimate hunger pangs. We love the lineup by Emerald because of all the craving-busting flavors. Sriracha Cashews? Cocoa Roast Almonds? We're obsessed!

Fruit Finds

Fruit is flat-out one of the best travel snacks around! But skip fruits that need a lot of prep, and protect anything easily squished. Example: Save your banana from bruising with a snazzy case!

Dairy DOs

More protein-packed snacks! If you're skittish about having your dairy goodies unrefrigerated for too long, a little insulated lunchbox will do the trick to keep 'em cool. P.S. If you don't know, Elli Quark is like a cross between yogurt and cottage cheese, and it's fantastic!

Campbell's Healthy Request Soup on the Go

1 container: 60 - 140 calories, 0 - 2g total fat (0 - 0.5g sat. fat), 410mg sodium, 8 - 32g carbs, 2g fiber, 2 - 20g sugars, 3g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2 - 6*

Choose from Chicken & Mini Round Noodles and Classic Tomato; both excellent picks! Just toss one of these in the microwave, and slurp away. No utensils needed. And we love that we don't need to do any math to determine the calorie count. Unlike standard soup cans, the entire container is one serving. Remember: Any soup can be soup-to-go if you have a good travel mug!

Veg Out

The fact that you're busy running around town isn't an excuse not to eat your vegetables! Pack a serving or two into sealable baggies or containers, and bring them on your travels...

Sweet Stuff

Avoid the temptation of candy bars and pastries by stocking the right stuff in your bag!

And if you want a slew of snack recipes, here are 22 to choose from!
