10 Healthy Snacks On The Go
It’s tempting to go through a drive-thru or grab something convenient when you’re hungry on the go. Unfortunately what’s most convenient isn’t always the most healthy. Here are 10 low-carb healthy snack ideas for when you’re out and about!
Handful of Pecans
One of the more low-carb nut options, grabbing a handful of pecans when you’re on the go is a great option if you’re looking for something that will help you feel full and help you stay within in your carb limits for the day.
Fresh strawberries are not only in season, they’re great to snack on when you’re out running errands or wanting a midday pick-me-up.
As long as it’s a hard cheese like mozzarella or cheddar, snacking on a string cheese or two when you’re out and about is a great option if you’re feeling hungry.
A refreshing, low-carb veggie option for snacking purposes is cucumber. With a little bit of slicing prep up front, you can cut up a bunch at a time and snag a bag of it when you’re on your way out the door.
Also great for a fresh snacking option, munching on a celery stick (or the whole stalk) is a great choice for snacking when you’re mobile.
Sprinkled with a little salt, avocado is a satisfying snack that can be cut up and stored in a bag or Tupperware container if you know you’ll be hungry later.
Shopping for full-fat, plain yogurt might not be your go-to, but it’s a handy snack worth trying if you’re looking for an on-the-go option. Just make sure to check your labels! Some brands try to sneak in added sugars.
Ham Cold Cuts
Rolling up a few cold cuts and taking them with you when you head out the door is a great way to ensure healthy snacking. Opt for ham and check your labels to avoid extra sugar!
No need to worry about any prep for this snack. Just drain and go! Olives are a hearty snack that are easy to pack up and take on the road.
Hard Boiled Egg
Getting some eggs boiling at the beginning of the week is a great way to prep for several days of delicious snack options.
