10 More Healthy Snacks On The Go

In my previous post, I gave you ten healthy snacks for on the go. Today I plan on giving you ten more. I know that variety is key in any good diet. Between these ten healthy snacks for on the go and the other ten, you have plenty of fantastic snacks to choose from. Enjoy!

1. Sliced Tomato & Cucumber

Cut a tomato up into medium sized slices. Place three slices into each plastic baggie. Now add approximately a quarter cup of cucumber slices to the bag. You’ll be getting a tasty snack, containing a generous amount of Vitamin’s A and C, along with about 1.5 grams of protein. This snack racks up to just about 20 calories, making it the ultimate low-cal snack on the go.

2. Happy Squeeze Greek Yogurt

This comes in a pouch like the applesauce & pureed fruit. It doesn’t have to be refrigerated, which makes it perfect for on the go. You get your daily dose of calcium and vitamin D, plus it’s just 100 little calories.

3. Sliced Bell Peppers & Thin Sliced Carrots

Cut a green bell pepper into strips. Place ten into each baggie. Add 5 baby carrots. This tasty little snack is great for those who love a good crunch. It also contains a generous amount of Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Coming in at about 25 calories per baggie, it’s another amazingly low-cal snack. You could eat four baggies and still have only consumed 100 calories!

4. Apple Teddy Grahams

The apple flavored teddy grahams can also be placed into plastic baggies, or you can count out 24 pieces as your heading out the door. For 24 pieces, you get 2 grams of protein, plus 10% of your daily Calcium, Iron, and Zinc. They’re sweet, delicious, and come in at only 130 calories.

Yield: 2 1/4 cups (about 9 servings)

Mix the ingredients listed above in a big bowl for a simple trail mix. Place 1/4 cup of the mix into individual sized baggies to take with you on the go. Each baggie contains tons of nutrients, and comes in at about 97 calories.

6. Homemade Trail Mix, Variation 2

Ingredients: 1/4 cup of dried cherries; 1/2 cup sliced almonds, 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips, 2 cups of frosted flakes

Delicious, right? You get plenty of your daily doses of numerous vitamins, plus it’s only about 68 calories per baggie.

7. Cheese Sticks- Individual Serving Size

If you choose the weight watcher’s strong cheese sticks (available in a number of flavor varieties) then you can enjoy your individually wrapped cheese stick for only 50 calories a serving. Plus, you get a nice dose of Calcium while you’re at it.

8. Cherries (Without Pits)

Cherries are not only sweet and delicious, they are also pretty healthy for you. Grab a cup of cherries and stash it away in those Ziploc baggies you should always have on hand. Yes, I said a full cup- not a half cup. One cup of cherries without pits has tons of the stuff you need- 39% daily Vitamin A, 2% daily Calcium, 25% daily Vitamin C, 2% daily Iron, 5% daily Vitamin B-6, and 3% daily Magnesium. It also has 1.6 grams of protein, and all for just 77 small calories.

9. Orange Slices

Growing up in Florida, I was raised on oranges. They’re a little higher in calories than some other fruits, but they’re great for your immune system! Take a large orange. Peel it and pull it into slices ahead of time. Store it in a plastic baggie. You can store up to three or four pre-sliced orange bags in your fridge for those who are single and eat one bag a day. Orange slices contain 1.7 grams of protein, and a whopping 163% of your daily Vitamin C. They also contain 8% daily Vitamin A,7% daily Calcium, 1% daily Iron, 5% daily Vitamin B-6, and 4% daily Magnesium. All for just 87 calories too!

10. Boiled Egg & Pickles

Boil up a few eggs at a time. I have a family of five people living in my house, so I boil up a full dozen. Once they’re boiled, peel them and place them into plastic baggies. Add 2 dill pickle spears to the baggie. The egg and pickle combined contains 6 grams of protein, 5% daily Vitamin A andB-6, 2% daily Calcium, 11% daily Vitamin D, 10% daily Vitamin B-12, 3% Daily Iron, and 1% daily Magnesium. Together it amounts to just 88 little calories too!
