Healthy Snacks That Are Easy to Pack

    As I’m always on a mission to clean up my diet, I’ve recently been focusing on reigning in my snacking. Whether I’m in the office or working from home, it can be tempting to munch mindlessly on whatever’s around. Of course, I end up feeling totally bloated and terrible after literally eating all day.

    It’s funny– when I was on a steady effort to lose weight a couple years back, I actually ate more frequently, just with better foods. So lately, I’ve been exploring different healthy snacks that are also tasty and easy to put together for packing on the go. I thought I’d share three of my favorite go-to combinations that I’ve been packing for myself lately, perfect for those looking to eat healthier or who just need convenient options.

    What I find helpful in terms of packing snacks— or lunches in general— is using a bento box for portion control. I personally have the Lifemark Labs Bento Box which has three compartments and is totally leakproof, even between the interior compartments (super important for most of my favorite snacks). Using a bento box lets you portion out your lunch and snacks mindfully to help avoid overeating. You can see how much food I can still fit inside in the below “snack packs” I often assemble for myself.

    These “snack packs” are on regular rotation during the week for me. Sometimes I even eat one of these as my whole lunch and I’m left totally satisfied. Depending on your own diet goals, these could be a great option for mid-day snacking while trying to eat healthy. Remember: eating clean doesn’t mean eating less, just eating smart.

      • Since the cottage cheese is high in protein, you could sub for Greek Yogurt! That would go well with the blueberries as well. As far as the hummus, have you tried different flavors of hummus? Not just plain but they have all sorts of different tastes now. If you still don’t like it, perhaps some low fat ranch dressing (in moderation!)

        • I have tried a few flavors that I liked, but still none that I was crazy about. I’ll just have to experiment, heheh. Thanks!! ^_^ <3

          • Have you tried other “hummus” types? like edamame hummus, or white bean hummus? I am not a fan of regular hummus, but I love the others.

    1. These are some great ideas! Thanks for sharing… I’m always looking to add a little variety to my diet… I tend to eat the same thing day in a day out, and then all of a sudden, I can’t stand it anymore! ha. 🙂

    2. These are some great snack ideas, the hummus is my personal favourite. I think another one you may like is slice and apple so it’s circles and take the centre out. Smother with PB or any butter of choice and raisins and sliced almonds if you want a crunch. That is my go to snack that is filling also a banana with PB is a great snack as well. Great ideas here keep up the great work !
