Healthy Travel Snacks When
You're On the Go


Healthy travel snacks will help keep you on you from resorting to the drive through or vending machine. Consider these healthy diet snacks for your car or office.

Healthy Energy Bars

The key with energy bars is to carefully read labels. Not all of them are good for you. Many are packed with sugar, fat, and preservatives.

My favorite are Clif Bars. There's a flavor for everyone, from Blueberry Crunch to Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip to Oatmeal Raisin.

Clif Bars have 10 grams of quality soy protein, 4 grams of fiber, and mostly organic ingredients. The sugar content is a little high, so don't eat more than one a day.

Even better, Clif Bars are made from high quality, all-natural ingredients, and the company is environmentally sensitive. Clif bars were formulated for outdoor enthusiasts, so they stay fresh for a long time, even in a hot car.

Other acceptable energy bars include Luna Bars and Lara Bars.

Fresh Fruit

You can't go wrong reaching for an apple or banana at 7-Eleven or one of the fresh fruit plates at Starbucks. Get a healthy dose of fiber and satisfy your sweet tooth with a piece of fruit instead of a candy bar!

Nuts and Seeds

Healthy diet snacks include a handful of almonds, cashews, or peanuts. They go a long way to satisfying hunger. Even sunflower seeds will get you to your next healthy meal. Starbucks stocks small packages of healthy nuts. Not sure how well they go with coffee, but they're easy to eat in the car.

Soy Yogurt

Healthy food snacks like soy yogurt are perfect for those late afternoon or mid-morning munchies. Whole Soy and Silk brands are creamy and delicious, made from organic soy, and come in a variety of yummy flavors.

Soy lasts longer than dairy too, so buy a bunch and stash them in the fridge at work. Just be sure to put your name on the bag or hungry co-workers might swipe them!

Instant Organic Oatmeal

The winner among these healthy travel snacks? Nature's Path Instant Organic Oatmeal. It's high in fiber, low in sugar, and tastes great.

It comes in boxes of 8 single-serve packets. Keep some in your desk for emergencies. Add some raisins or nuts if you have them.

These 5 snacks will keep you from resorting to the drive-through. Yes you can eat healthy in your car or office even when life is completely hectic!
