I've been slicing up sticks of jicama - sweet, crunchy, and lots of fiber.

Homemade trail mix is good too, but a little goes a long way for calories.

Oh! And cherries are in season. Great for snacking.

I also have started making snack bags ahead of time. I measure out a small portion of a cereal, like kashi or muesli, add 1/8 c. nuts, sometimes rasins. I started doing this because it seemed like it would take a half hour to pack my food for the day! I'm sure you all know what I mean. Anyway, with that I either eat it with a piece of fruit, or mix it in with some yogurt.

I got some goji berry trail mix from TJ's and it was really good, I do the same as Nancy, and measure out my almonds from the bulk bin and put them in little snack baggie for snacks. I did the same w/ my trail mix. Premeasured like that it's portion limited, and so easy to throw in the lunch pail or bag!

Thanks so much Nancy. I always carry fiber bars/homemade protien bars and dried fruit with nuts.

Hi Wanda, I weigh out .625 ounces (or about 18 grams) in each little snack size ziploc bag. That equals 100 calories.

If you weigh out an ounce (28 grams) it would be 160 calories.

"When you had your indulgent meal of {name it here} instead of going all out, WHY not turn it around right there?

Anyone who has successfully figured out that SMALL SUCCESSES make BIG SUCCESSES.

In an enormous act of love, the kindest thing you can do is walk away from this junk food.

The act of saying NO lays down a boundary of love. NO to junk food means YES to you, which after all is the point."

The Kashi Go Lean is great to put in a snack bag with some almonds as a mix or I love putting some of it on my yogurt. Cut up a mix of vege's like all colors of peppers, cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower etc to nibble on something different. Take a small container with All Natural Peanut Butter and eat some of that on an apple. Some cottage cheese with some berries is a great snack. I will grill several different kinds of meat for the week thereby being able to eat something different every day or every meal. Buy or make some hummus with roasted red peppers and use that as a veggie dip. Deviled eggs or hard boiled eggs make a great Protein + Fat meal. Here's a few more to add to the list.

Bananas, grapes, most any fruit is portable. Nuts, celery sticks, peanut butter in the small cups, tuna and salmon either in the 3 oz packs or small cups, snack size cottage cheese. I'm sure you'll get plenty of ideas here!

I buy a large bag of natural almonds and weigh them out into those snack sized sandwich bags. Then I just grab a bag and go. I started out buying the Blue Diamond Almond 100 calorie bags, but started making my own because it was much cheaper that way! They are a great snack.

So my office is basically my car, I am a sales rep and spend LOTS of time in the car. I am good about packing a little lunchpail ahead of time, but I seem to pack the same thing EVERY weekday because it is habit for me I think and I know they are good foods. I typically pack a bag of baby carrots, a lite string cheese, a yoplait light yogurt, an apple, two kiwis, an orange, a carb control myoplex lite shake, and 2-3 oz of cooked chicken breast. [i know that is a lot of food, or seems like it, but I snack on it throughout the day...I dont like big meals just smaller ones frequently].

So my question is, does anyone have any good portable suggestions for protein, carbs, etc., or just things they have found to like? its always good to get other people's suggestion because I think I get stuck in a rut sometimes! I am getting so bored each day and its not fun for my mouth anymore hehe. Oh, and I do tend to switch up the fruits, sometimes blackberries, straberries, grapefruit etc, so I love fruit and thats no problem. I am just wondering of other things I could introduce to my daily grind!! :) thanks in advance for any suggestions!
