    I am trying hard not to eat too much sugar and no flour and am not finding it too hard.The hardest thing is that I had gastric bypass 8 years ago and I can't eat as much as most so I have to eat small portions more often of the right things.

    My dietician suggested that I pack portable snacks. I was delighted to see this article. I plan on implementing some of the ideas found here. I'm always finding myself on the road during mealtimes and eating on the run is one of the pitfalls I've been facing. - 1/5/2014 5:03:33 PM
    really good info for me as it helps me pack more portable snacks

    all of this is about personal taste - you may like something someone else doesn't - no harm no foul - move on to something that you do like

  • I am addicted to sugar snap peas. I take them to work in a baggie and snack on them all the time. I also take cut up apple slices with lemon juice over them to keep them from turning brown. Easier to eat at work than a whole apple, although I do that sometimes too. It feels like two totally different snacks. - 8/17/2013 11:16:54 PM
    smart4andrey -- Peanut butter is rich in healthier fats, like poly- and monounsaturated, and is low in saturated. Keep in mind you NEED to have some fat in your diet, and it's not bad to have those snacks occasionally. Plus, peanut butter tastes great to a good number of people. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean someone else won't. - 7/16/2013 12:57:46 AM
  • A couple of my favorite healthy snacks are either 8 almonds with 2 prunes or 4 whole wheat crackers with a wedge of Laughing Cow Light cheese. Both are about 100 calories & have lots of protein. Yum! - 7/9/2013 8:10:19 PM
  • I don't wanna be negative and all, but some of items are just awful.
    First of all, peanut butter - that's fat, salt and much more fat. Doesn't even taste that good.
    Bagel with cheese - same deal.
    Pickles for a snack is just funny to me, - 7/9/2013 2:16:10 PM
    1 oz dry roasted almonds in a snack baggie with a small box of raisins. Prepped a few of these for a trip recently and was quite glad I had. - 7/9/2013 7:11:48 AM
  • Lots of good suggestions. Thanks - 6/14/2013 6:42:23 AM
    I peel a jicama, cut it in half and then use my mandolin to slice each half. I sprinkle the slices with lime juice, put in a sandwich bag and leave in frig until cool and crisp. Wonderful snack! I also sprinkle slices with cinnamon for a different taste. - 6/12/2013 11:49:00 PM
  • I have read that putting a wet sponge into a zip lock baggie and freezing it it good for then putting in to lunches as the sponge soaks back up the water as it defrosts. - 6/11/2013 9:11:40 PM
  • Love the info. Good also for watching t.v. - 6/7/2013 8:28:05 AM
  • My husband and I do lots of day trips on our own and with a group we are members of.
    I always pack my insulated lunch bag with a home made ice pack, crushed ice in double bagged sandwich size zipper baggies, this keeps the melted ice from leaking out. I pack a mid morning and mid afternoon snack, both being a protein and veggie combo. We only bring water along for drinking and of course our Coleman water jug for refilling. I have lost 19 lbs with 34 more to lose. I gained my excess weigh over 30 years of mindless eating. I am aiming to make my goal weight in 24 months. - 2/16/2013 1:21:23 PM
