Snack Foods

I travel a lot for work, and have been asked by my personal trainer to come up with a list of 15 foods that I can have on hand, and grab to bring with me when I'm in the car all day.

I feel like I keep coming up with the same old things (veggies w/ hummus, veggies w/ pb, 100 cal. packs, turkey/tortilla wraps, etc.).

I'd LOVE some new ideas!

one old favorite of mine is a small tortilla with a thin spread of peanut butter (tbsp or less) and a sprinkle of (generic) grape nuts. Roll up and seal in a baggie or saran wrap... do several at a time and they will keep. Crunchy, gooey...soft all at the same time.

raisins or other dried fruit

I have made my own 100 cal packs by just counting out the calories and limiting it to under (usually) what the regular "serving size" calls for- like 23 whales instead of 33- that is if you want to keep it to 100 cal increments.

boiled egg.

wrap your meat around a pickle or cucumber slice...

kashi bars

Oranges are great portable snack since they are pretty tough in a bag and don't have to be washed since you just peel the outside off anyway. I frequently pack dry cereal, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and spears of green pepper for snacks at work.

baby carrots, cheese sticks, granola, trail mix (dried fruit and buts, not the m&m kind!), power bars, bag of grapes, banana, beef jerky
maybe some of these aren't 100% healthy (i'm not sure about the string cheese and beef jerky) but it works for me at least!

I forgot to mention that I am supposed to be keeping a high protein diet b/c of blood sugar issues. I used to be able to do this on veggies and fruit all day, but now need to make sure to include protein.

try - Turkey jerkey - but watch the salt on this.
Nuts and raisins are key for me, better than meal replacement bars.
Try soymilk - they make small packs like juice drink boxes, require no refridgeration. I think they are targeted for kids but I keep these in my car for when I need a protein hit. Edensoy makes good ones and there are some with lower carbs, study the nutrition labels though.
The string cheese is great as someone mentioned.

The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
