Clean Eating Grab & Go Snack Ideas


I am a snacker…. and I always have been!

I usually have 2-3 snacks per day. Over the years I have figured out that there are some snacks out there that don’t fill me and that don’t give me the energy. I need foods that help me make it through my day of teaching classes, training clients, and chasing after my crazy 1 year old Ava.

In the past I would easily have grabbed a processed granola bar or ate crackers/pretzels until I was overly full (because I didn’t know better). Although that junk tasted yummy while I was eating it, I hated the way I felt after! It wasn’t until I studied nutrition that I learned what foods gave me energy but most importantly kept me satisfied.

Here’s a list of some of My FAVORITE Grab & Go snacks that I eat in between meals:

Apple with almond butter or natural peanut butter (1 tbsp)


Hardboiled eggs with avocado & tomato


2-3 tbsp spoons of hummus & veggies


Protein Shake (Most recently I added Shakeology & it’s been a big night time snack saver)IMG_2693

Instant Oatmeal (unsweetened) with almond milk, cinnamon, fresh fruit, nuts, or honeyIMG_2714

Celery stalk topped with 1 tbsp natural almond or peanut butter


Egg Frittata Squares


Green Monster Smoothie


Roasted Pumpkin Seeds with olive oil, salt & pepper


Deli Turkey (2 slices) with 1/4 cup avocado & tomato in lettuce wrapsimage

Mixed Nuts


This list can go on…..

  • Greek yogurt w/ chopped almonds, pistachios & honey
  • 2 slice Deli turkey (I buy Applegate farms) and low fat cheese (1 slice)
  • Banana Sliced w/ almond or peanut butter, sprinkled with coconut or crushed walnuts
  • Lara Bar (Cashew Cookie, Apple Pie, or Peanut butter cookie)

As I read over this list not only does it make me hungry but it also makes me think about how good I feel after eating each of these snacks!! The best part is, you can prepare all of this ahead of time and throw them in tupperware containers to take with you wherever you go!

What are your favorite healthy snacks?

Do you have a lot of packaged snacks in your cabinets?

  1. Great list! I love having apples with almond butter as a snack, and lara bars are great to grab on the the go.

    • Thanks! I love both of those snacks. I did change it up and had celery with almond butter yesterday but usually I prefer apples with peanut butter!

  2. Lots of good snacks here! Lately I’ve been loving AMRAP bars and About Time Protein Smoothies post workout.

  3. I’d share my favorite, but you did a great job covering them! I also enjoy a nice iced coffee if I don’t have any food around for some unknown reason.

    • Thanks Jessie! Iced coffee is always great. I wish it was warm enough here to drink it. On Monday it was 0 degrees when I left for work. This winter has turned me into a hot coffee girl.
