Wondering what to eat while commuting? Try these car snacks that are perfect for the daily commuter.
Gearing up for another busy season? When my schedule is packed, I like to meal prep energy bites or buy healthy, grab-and-go snacks from the supermarket. My plan is to always be prepared when hunger strikes.
Whether you're running errands or catching a flight, there's no reason to choose a less-than-nutritious, last-minute snack. I hope you put these recommendations for fueling up while you're away from home to good use!
When I was younger, my friends played a "what's in Amy's purse?" game. They'd laugh because there might be a spoon in there, and there would always be one or two snack choices.
And a bottle of water and...you get the picture. I never like to be in a situation in which I'm forced to eat something that's less than nutritious, so I always have my just-in-case purse snacks on hand.

Away from home and feeling hangry? Weight-loss-friendly packaged snacks that are also easy to transport? Yes, please! See my picks for healthy car snacks in this ClassPass.com article. (I also love chocolate almond butter!)
I share even more ideas in this Yahoo.com post to eat when you're out and about. Be sure to pack one (or two) in your bag!
For starters, here's a list of some of my fave healthy car-friendly snacks:
- Sunsweet Ones Prunes
- Wonderful Pistachios 100-Calorie Packs
- Pearls Olives to Go
- Biena Chickpea 1.2-ounce bags
- KIND Minis
- Fruit (apple, orange, and bananas travel well)
In another country? Your best bet for a healthy snack is often picking up fruit at a bodega, which I included in my list of the best places to eat in Florence.
Homemade Snacks to Pack and Go
Want to bring something from home? It’s that time of year when so many amazing fresh fruits and vegetables are in season! Fruits and vegetables offer filling fiber, and fruit and most veggies are low calorie. Here are a few of my favorite recent finds:
1. Mango with chili powder: I first tried this combo from a street food vendor in New York City. It is so delicious!
2. Roasted Vegetables: Think roasted veggies are just for meals? They make a great snack, too.
3. Crudité with guacamole: I’m really loving sliced radishes and cucumbers right now, but you can pair any combo of veggies with guacamole for a veggie-filled snack.
4. Grilled Tropical Fruit Kebobs: Heating fruit brings out its natural sweetness.
5. Frozen banana slices: This is one of my favorite treats when I want a dessert sans added sugar. I simply peel the banana, slice it, and freeze it in a zip-top bag.
