10 Healthy On-the-Go Snacks to Satisfy the Pickiest of Eaters

Updated: Nov 5, 2021

Do you struggle with putting together quick, grab-and-go snacks that are delicious, healthy and, most importantly, guilt free?

Let's be honest, our modern lives get so busy, and that makes it hard to find time to suss out a healthy snack, right?

That doesn’t mean you have to compromise your health by settling for Twinkies however!

Healthy snacks are important for those in-between meal moments because they:

● Sustain your energy from meal to meal

● Stabilize your blood sugar

● Keep your mood steady and focus sharp

So how do I know what to look out for in healthy, on-the-go snacks?

Nuts—an excellent source of high protein:

Look for raw or dry roasted and stay away from nuts with additives like vegetable oil and salt as these can turn rancid if they sit in a bag in a store.

Fruit—packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants:

Look for organic fruit like bananas packed with potassium and oranges loaded with Vitamin C

Yogurt—high in protein and good source of healthy fats:

Look for full-fat, organic greek yogurt or ones that do not contain artificial flavors or sweeteners like sugar or corn syrup.

Hard boiled eggs—high source of protein and will keep your blood sugars level:

Boil them the night before and throw a couple in your bag.

Nut butter on rice cakes—also high in protein and stabilizes blood sugar:

Opt for plain rice cakes and look for a nut butter brand that is natural, organic or free of additives and sweeteners.

Energy bars—a much healthier and nutritious alternative to chocolate bars:

Avoid brands with soy protein isolate and look for brands that contain over 10 grams of whey protein, hemp protein or pea protein. My personal favourites are Quest and RXBARS.

Dark chocolate—high in natural caffeine that can give you that energy boost:

Look for brands that list cacao as the first ingredient not sugar.

Trail Mix—packed with a combo of proteins and sugars to increase your energy:

Look for a mix that doesn’t contain added vegetable oil and salt or buy a variety of nuts, seeds, raisins and sugar-free cranberries at the health store to mix yourself.

Raw veggies—slices of raw veggies are loaded with vitamins and minerals:

Choose organic veggies where possible and cut the morning of to maintain their maximum nutrients instead of buying pre-cut slices in a bag.

Pumpkin or sunflower seeds—high in sources of vegetable protein:

Look for raw seeds wherever possible. You can find them in the bulk food section at your grocery store.
