    Apples travel pretty easily, so I’ll bring one of those, and I always keep a snack-size baggie of pistachios and/or almonds in my purse. 🙂

      Nuts are a great idea. I used to have little serving size ziplocks of trail mix in my car for after the gym. That was a good idea.

    You have a ton of great ideas! I also have grape tomatoes handy for either a snack or their easy to toss into almost any meal! Nuts, Babybel cheese, Granola bars, yogurt singles and cottage cheese singles. Sometimes I’ll store those healthy microwave dinners in the freezer too, just in case I’m busy but close to a microwave.

      I love the Babybel cheese! Great suggestion! I haven’t seen single serving cottage cheeses but I’ll look next time.

    I love protein bars in a pinch. We get Luna and Balance bars. I like the Balance because they have the most protein in them, plus not as much soy as the Luna bars.

    Dates and dried pineapple are staples that are always in our cupboard for bike rides, but they are great to grab going out the door.

    Individual packets of nutbutter. Perfect for traveling and also good to keep from dipping in the jar for the third tablespoon – not that I ever do that or anything…

      I’ve seen the individual peanut and almond butter packets at Whole Foods. That’s a great idea!

    This morning I had a course, and planned to buy my lunch. I grabbed an apple and a mini babybel to snack on. Other than that, protein bars travel well. I get the atkins ones because they are low in sugar (but are artificially sweetened, which bothers some people). I used to keep trail mix in my car, but haven’t found myself needing it lately.

    I have been stuck in your situation many, many times (my ex was post kidney transplant and could go downhill very quickly) and I usually had to resort to vending machines! Luckily the vending machines at Auckland hospital are the healthy kind. Good on ya for thinking ahead and grabbing a snack!

      The Atkins protein shakes are actually pretty good, too. They are low in calories and sugar and taste really good. They’d be a good option in a pinch.

      Glad the vending machines in Auckland have healthier option. They definitely don’t here!
