Simple Snack #6 – My Favorite Grab-And-Go Snacks!

Simple Snacks is all about easy and healthy – and sometimes that means ready-made snacks. So far, I’ve posted a bunch of homemade simple snacks but for this post, I compiled  a few of my favorite grab-and-go snacks. Because, let’s be real, we all need healthy alternatives to the vending machine when we know we don’t have time to scratch make a snack beforehand.

Grab-and-Go Snack #1 – Trader Joe’s Dried Baby Sweet Pineapple


These little babies are sweet, filling, and perfect on the go. They are definitely good when you’re craving a treat. Since they are pretty sweet, a little goes a long way. They are a favorite of mine since they keep me away from other sugary grab-and-gos like candy or cookies.


Grab-and-Go Snack #2 – 365 Brand Quack’n Bites


Totally a Goldfish rip off but that’s ok with me. These pre-portioned packages are great for controlled snacking. Sometimes if I have a regular-sized bag of Goldfish, I will mindlessly eat the whole thing. These snack packs are great by themselves or as a good lunchtime side.


Grab-and-Go Snack #3 – 365 Brand Organic Apple Sauce 


For some reason I’ve been experiencing an apple sauce renaissance. I can’t get enough of the stuff! I find this is a great snack between breakfast and lunch; it’s not too heavy and isn’t too sweet. I like this apple sauce also because it’s a nice alternative to just throwing an apple in my bag which will a) get beat up in there and b) never get eaten. My favorite thing about this apple sauce though is the ingredients. Can you see them there? Yup, it’s just organic apples. That’s it. No fillers, no random acids, no fake sugars. Just organic apple goodness. Don’t forget a spoon!

  1. I do a lot of think thin bars (high fiber ones are really yummy), gnu bars, paleonola from Whole Foods, light string cheese, apple slices and almond butter, low carb pigs fly bread with hummus and tomato/almond butter, Go Lean instant oatmeal, siggis yogurt (2% plain or coconut), orange slices, etc. I basically just look at the sugar and carbs per serving and try to keep it as low as possible vs. caloric value. Nothing white, minimally processed, low carb with some healthy fat is my rule of thumb.

  2. Oooh… good idea with apple sauce. I went to a (free) nutritionist at work the other day and one thing that’s tough for me is eating enough fruit since I’m just not super into it. Apple sauce sounds so good to me though!
