Secrets of Success

Keep A Healthy Snack With You




Sometimes I get stuck in places or situations where I don't get to eat lunch or something else as planned. I carry a protein bar in my purse all the time. Then if I get tied up I can eat that so that I don't let myself get so hungry that I eat things I shouldn't or stuff myself.

More Information:

My favorite protein bar is Pure Protein bars with 180 - 200 calories depending on flavor. It keeps my protein and carbs up and is easy to carry with me. I buy a box of them at Walmart in the pharmacy area. Some protein bars are higher in calories. Zone bars are also good.

  • I take my lunch to work most days, I include sliced bell peppers/baby carrots/grape tomatoes/grapes/celery stalks for snacks. I nibble them at the end of the day so that I will have energy to go to the gym.... emoticon - by SANDYHD
  • Since I'm diabetic I try to keep a little something in the car with me because there are times that I need something but can't stop to eat a meal right then. Usually something in the 100 calories snack will do. - by SANDRAFIVE
  • You are so smart! In the 6 years that I've been a mom, I always think I need to keep something for MYSELF in the diaper bag with the kids' snacks, and I never do! I think I'll buy a box TODAY and put one in my purse, too! THANKS! - by STRINGI719
