Today I’m sharing some of my favorite easy snacks to eat when you’re on the go. 

It can be tough to eat healthy when you’re busy. Between work, school, or getting the kids to where they need to be, it can be tempting to make unhealthy choices when you get hungry. 

Luckily there are a ton of healthy options for snacks if you’re willing to put in a bit of work and forethought into your day. I’m sharing 10 of my favorite easy snacks to eat on the go. 

Trail mix

First on my list is trail mix. It’s one of my favorite portable snacks. It’s so easy to put in a tupperware and go. It’s easy to eat with one hand if you’re doing something else. It doesn’t require utensils. Trail mix is packed with healthy fats and protein from the nuts. 

Protein shake 

Protein shakes are super easy to make – all you need to do is add water to protein powder in a shake bottle and shake. I’m always looking for ways to add protein to my food intake, so it’s a great snack for me. It’s also super easy to transport, whether you’re in the car after the gym or running errands. 

Yogurt and frozen berries

While this snack needs to be kept cold and you need a spoon, it’s one of my favorite snacks to take with me. As long as you keep an eye on the sugar content of the yogurt, it’s a really healthy snack. And if you opt for Greek yogurt you’ll get some added protein too. 

Hummus and pita

This snack is a great combination of carbs from the pita and protein from the chickpeas in the hummus. If pita isn’t your thing you can swap it out for veggies – carrots, celery, and bell pepper strips work great. 

Protein balls

There’s no shortage of protein ball recipes online. They’re everywhere from healthy living blogs to Pinterest. Some of my favorite flavors include peanut butter and chocolate. Yum! 

Apple and nut butter

Whether it’s Granny Smith or Fugi, everyone has a favorite kind of apple. Pairing an apple with your go to nut butter is a delicious combo. My favorites are peanut and cashew butters. Apple are easy to cut up into slices before you leave the house and put a couple spoonfuls of nut butter into a tupperware. 

Homemade muffins

While muffins definitely take more prep work than most of the things on this list, I think that they’re worth the extra work. If you make two dozen of them, you can put most of the min the freezer and take them out one at a time as you need them. They’re easy enough to defrost in the microwave before you leave the house.

Fruits and veggies

Whatever your favorite is, whether it’s a handful of berries, a banana, or a bell pepper cut into strips, they’re easy to prepare and eat while you’re on the go. Both fruits and vegetables are really healthy and full of vitamins and minerals. 


It’s important to check out the nutrition information and ingredients when picking out a jerky, but it can be a great source of protein when you’re out and about because it doesn’t require refrigeration. Jerky is available in a number of different flavors, so you can pick your favorite. 

Tuna and crackers

You can find these two packaged together at the grocery store or you can put them together at home. Tuna is packed with healthy fats and protein so it’ll keep you feeling fuller for longer. The crackers add some carbs and crunch, so it’s the perfect combination.
