Healthy On The Go Snacks

The end of the school year from April - June is considered the busy season for my job. That means grabbing a small snack between meetings and assessments and planning a lunch that is simple and can be enjoyed on the go. When work gets busy and stressful it is easy for mt to let my healthy eating slip and instead grab something sweet from the vending machine or a pack of cookies I keep in my office for students. Being prepared with delicious snacks I love is the only way to prevent that! Recently I have found myself in a rotation of a few favorites which I wanted to share with y'all today. 

100 Calorie Pack Almonds- I buy these for pure convenience as I am sure that I could make my own but  honestly don't want to spend the time doing it. My favorite are the sea salt and dark chocolate. 

Chobani Greek Yogurt- I always switch it up depending what brand is on sale but Chobani is my tried and true favorite. 
Dates with Peanut Butter- When I need a little extra fuel for evening workouts or just craving something sweet this treat is amazing. I can't believe I just discovered how good it was until this month! I top two dates with a tablespoon of peanut butter and enjoy. It tastes super sweet almost like a caramel candy. If I am feeling extra indulgent I'll add a few chocolate chips. 


Larabar Uber- These bars skirt the fine line between healthy treat and candy bar. I will enjoy one when am craving something really sweet in the afternoon after hitting that 2-3pm slump.  I'll reach for one of these instead of the M&M's.

What are your favorite on the go snacks? Have you ever tried dates and pb? or do you think it's a crazy combination.

  1. Dates and peanut butter. I have never thought of it, but it does seem like it would be tasty. I like my almonds with a cutie. The touch of sweetness with the nuts works for me :)

  7. I love KIND bars and kids organic cliff bars (also borderline candy bar). I am all about a good hard boiled egg, cottage cheese single servings, berries or an apple. I am also a 5 year old at heart and still enjoy ants on a log! You can prep it before hand..just be sure to take a napkin!

  9. I love the KIND low sugar bars, and the Uber bars are awesome. But I have to watch myself or I eat too many bars! It's easy for me to overdo it with those so I have to make them an occasional treat rather than a daily thing

  11. I like Chobani yogurt and it is a delicious on-the-go snack. I get the vanilla and add granola and fruit to it. YUM!!! I've not tried dates with peanut butter but it sounds divine. #wowlinkup

  12. I feel like my busy life revolves around healthy snacks on the go! I usually take a premade smoothie with me and drink that to get my day started than; seaweed snacks, wasabi peas, wasabi almonds, I'll make tuna or egg salad on whole grain bread and pack that in a cooler.. The list is endless! I HAVE to live this way or (Being a Californian) I will give in and find myself in the drive in line at In and Out! #wowlinkup

  13. I'm definitely going to have to try the date and peanut butter combo. Sounds interesting!! I'm a big fan of hard boiled eggs on the go, and the the Greek in me is completely loyal to Fage. Hope you're having a freak week!
