I am always looking for snack ideas. I'd rather snack than eat a full meal. I try to eat a little something every two to three hours. I need snacks to be easy to throw in my purse, and portion controlled for me. Individual packaging works best if you have grazing issues. If you graze, you know what I'm talking about, and if you don't graze, you won some type of genetic lottery so be thankful. Here's a few staples I always keep on hand:
|Emerald's Dry Roasted Almonds are my favorite|
FRUIT! I really love fruit, though I will admit to watching how much I consume as I do count my daily carb intake. Fruit is also great for morning shakes and that snack attack when you need something sweet.
PB2: great in shakes, oatmeal, with a side of fruit, or by itself!
Turkey perky jerky: low carb low cal, high protein turkey jerky that comes in an assortment of flavors. I buy mine at Target.
Quest bars are great for snacks, pre early morning run fuel, and breakfast on the go. I have yet to meet a Quest Bar I didn't like!
Edamame is a favorite for my husband and myself. He shops a lot at Sams Whole Sale, where edamame is sold at a great price in individually packaged bags ready to toss in microwave for a guilt free treat!
Last but certainly not least, the ultimate snack for me is popcorn. I eat it nearly everyday and I never feel bad about it. Life is meant to be lived, not endured!
