15 Healthy Snacks On The Go

15 Healthy Snacks On The Go

Life can be busy and unpredictable right? Sometimes we are caught in a bind and need something quick and easy to snack on between meals (or sometimes in place of a meal, unfortunately) that doesn't require much prep, doesn't need to be kept in the fridge and doesn't need to be heated. When you work in Law Enforcement, especially - most of your meals and snacks are eaten at a desk or in your unit between calls. Here is a list of super simple healthy snacks to keep with you in your lunch box, at your desk and in your go-bag that will not spoil. I recommend stocking up in advance - you never know when things will get busy or you get held over.

  1. Protein bars 
  2. Almonds or other nuts
  3. Protein shakes (put in shaker ahead of time for less mess / you can also throw in dry oats for more of a meal) 
  4. Wheat thins or whole grain crackers 
  5. Rice cakes 
  6. Peanut butter (they have travel size portions - or take the whole jar like I do) 
  7. Tuna pouches (less mess and you can eat it right out of the bag) or canned
  8. Dried fruit
  9. Beef jerky
  10. Popcorn
  11. Pretzels
  12. Baked chips
  13. Dried veggie crisps
  14. Pita chips
  15. Granola bars

*There are always lower carb versions of many of these snacks f you are on a low carb diet.

*Also try to select brands that are higher in fiber and lower in sugar.

You have enough to worry about when you are at work - eating shouldn't be one of them. Fail to plan, plan to fail; FIT FOR DUTY - FIT FOR LIFE!
