Dried fruit is just concentrated sugar, personally I would skip that. Most granola bars are too...

Maybe Kavli Crispy Thin Whole Grain Crispbread..17 calories and 4 grams of carb for a generous portion or maybe Wasa Crisp'n Light 7 Grains cracker bread with 20 calories and 4.5 grams of carb per slice. Why not pack a lunch bag cooler everyday with some raw veggies....easy to tote...maybe celery, radishes. raw cauliflower with a tad of reduced fat cream cheese or take along a yogurt cup, an applesauce cup, a fruit cup, fresh berries. I love those lunch cooler might too!

I often keep an apple in my purse. You can also buy individual 'snack packs' of peanut butter

dry cereal (something like puffins or cheerios would be great)
beef/turkey jerky
larabars (no coating like a regular protein bar so they will withstand the heat a little better)
dried fruit with no added sugar
dry roasted edamame
wasabi peas

dried fruit
trail mix
whole grain crackers
pb crackers (although these might melt)
veggie chips
nuts ( i like the 100 cal packs of almonds best, they seem to fit perfectly into the side pockets in my purse)

Here are my ideas...

Almonds (any nut, really)

I'm looking for something I can keep in my purse or bag to have on hand for those "emergency snacks". Sometimes I'll have things in my purse for days before I need it so I need something that will hold up to that challenge. It's also super hot where I live and my regular protein bars are melting.

I am looking for something besides / in addition to nuts and seeds, and not as full of refined sugar like most granola bars.

Any ideas?
