Portable snack options help prevent crashing or giving in to poor food choices no matter where you are. Try out these tricks courtesy of the Almond Board of California:
. Invest in a reusable snack bag or resealable bags to keep a stash of your own snacks in your purse, car or gym bag.
. Keep non-perishable snacks in your office or desk drawer, like instant oatmeal, almonds, baked chips, pretzels, dried fruit and a jar of almond butter. Add fresh ingredients such as yogurt, apples, grapes, cheese or whole-wheat toast to create a variety of snack combinations.
. Seek out smart snacks on the road, such as pre-packaged vegetables and dip, edamame, fruit and cheese, baked snacks or nutty trail mixes that you can portion out mindfully.
. Snack bars that use whole, unprocessed ingredients are perfect for stashing in carryon baggage.
. Bottled vegetable juices contain nutrients and fibre in a pinch; just be careful about added sugar.
