Healthy Snacks to Grab on the Fly

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, there’s often very little time to plan for meals and snacks, let alone cook. So what do you do when your stomach grumbles when you’re on-the-run? If you’re super hungry, maybe you grab those month-old candies at the bottom of your purse or the candy bar sitting around since Halloween. It truly doesn’t have to be this way. With a little advanced planning and some creative HealthyEats ideas, you can grab nutritious and delicious snacks even on your busiest days.

Homemade

Store-Bought

  • String cheese and whole grain crackers
  • Breakfast bars
  • Snack bars
  • Drinkable Greek yogurt
  • Fresh fruit like apples, bananas, oranges, pears and grapes
  • Small veggies like baby carrots, mini cukes, snap peas, or slice up  your favorite vegetables in advance and bag them individually
  • Unsalted pretzels
  • Hummus bowls
  • Almonds packed in perfectly portioned snack tins

Think Ahead
Whether you choose a homemade or store-bought snack, you need to make sure they’re close when hunger strikes. Stock up on ingredients so they’re readily available to grab-and-go. Wash fruits and store in a bowl on the countertop. Store yogurts in the fridge with a stack of disposable spoons. Stash granola, breakfast bars or individually packaged granola or trail mixtures in your desk, purse, or backpack—just be mindful of expiration dates. If you’re making muffins from scratch, make a double batch, wrap individually, and store in the freezer.
