Plus – win a year’s supply of cheese!

healthy snacks (33)

Now that Henry is mobile (that baby can run FAST!), life has really changed.  But how I eat has changed the most of all.  I simply don’t have time to sit down for a nice, big meal when I’m the only parent on duty. I grab a fork and get ready to sit down and – POOF! – Henry is off, getting into trouble. So that’s where healthy snacks come in!


But here’s the thing… the ‘usual suspects’ bore me.  I like to mix up my snacks and try something different every day. It’s amazing what a little extra effort can do to a snack – taking it from ho-hum to delicious with just a sprinkle of shredded coconut or a sprinkle of a spice.  The name of the game is healthy, fast, portable, and interesting.  So, without further ado…


Here is a list of 10 of my favorite healthy {but not boring} snacks.


#1 – Watermelon, fresh basil, and cheese kebobs.  This is really tasty with feta, but it’s also great with any white cheese.  I make them ahead of time and grab a kebob or two out of the fridge when I’m feeling snacky.

#2 – Anne’s Peanut Butter Bars.  Remember how these bars sustained Kristien and I through the newborn stage of Henry’s life?  Yup.  I lived off these bars (and still do!).  I love that they’re no-bake and can be made in five minutes or less.


#3 – Although Anne’s bars are great, sometimes I’m craving something more savory than sweet.  I also like to make tomato and cheese kebobs.  Sharp cheddar is my favorite cheese with tomatoes! 

healthy snacks (4)

Yes, everything tastes better in kebob form.  Kebob form is very useful for snacks on the go.  And we’re on the go all the time!

#4 – Dates stuffed with nut butter.  Almond butter is the best.  A quick sprinkle of shredded coconut makes it feel gourmet!

healthy snacks (20)

#5 – Holy Deliciousness Hummus is excellent on toast, crackers, chips – anything!  What makes my Holy Deliciousness Hummus so delicious?  Goat cheese!

#6 – I like to buy the pre-portioned ‘snack cheese’ (like string cheese, but not stringy) because there’s no cutting involved.  And they fit perfectly in Celery Boats.  Love the crunch.

healthy snacks (22)

#7 – Speaking of cheese… You’ve got to try a Warm Cheesy Pear.  Scoop out the center of a pear, put some cheddar jack cheese down, and microwave it for 45 seconds.  A sprinkle of cinnamon makes the flavors pop.  I really like snacking on things like this (and like the nut butter dates) because they feel so fancy but are quick to prepare.  Quickness is key!  If it isn’t fast, I’m not going to eat it.

#8 – Gotta love the old standby – Peanut Butter Toast.  I top mine with craisins, raisins, or fresh berries for something different.

healthy snacks (27)

#9 – More cheese treats!  Apple slices + cheese pieces keeps me feeling fuller, longer than a plain piece of fruit.

healthy snacks (29)

#10 – Roasted Chickpeas. I love Diana’s recipe but sometimes, if I’m not in the mood to mix a lot of spices, I just toss the chickpeas in some oil and curry powder. Bake and eat.

This awesome selection of healthy snacks was brought to you by Sargento’s Natural Cheese Snacks, which I’ve always eaten and loved.  Especially the string cheese.  Makes me feel like a kiddo again.

In honor of healthy and delicious snacks, I’m giving away a year’s supply of cheese!  Well, I should note that a “year’s supply” is 12 coupons to buy 12 packs of Cheese Snacks, which contain 12 snacks each.  So that’s 144 pieces of cheese, roughly three snacks a week – give or take.  Personally, I can put away a heck of a lot of cheese, but let’s go ahead and say – a year’s supply of cheese!

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 10:06 am

    I love the old green apple and almond butter standby!

  • Elise @ Expeditions of Elise April 18, 2013, 10:08 am

    I love snacks! It’s hard to decide on a favorite, but I’d say I really like smoothies as a healthy snack: fruit, plain yogurt, soy milk and maybe some greens. That’s all I need!

  • Aishah @ Coffee, Love, Health April 18, 2013, 10:08 am

    I love plain rice cakes topped with a nut butter, cinnamon, and raisins and/or dates.. so delicious! Sometimes ill put little pieces of dark chocolate on their, too, if I am feeling the need for something sweet 🙂 Thanks for all your great snack tips- love the cheese kebobs!!

  • Natalie April 18, 2013, 10:08 am

    ricotta cheese, tomato, and a drizzle of oil on a whole wheat cracker or piece of bread. SO good and SO quick. The tomato sticks right into the ricotta so the snack doesn’t fall apart!

  • Samantha April 18, 2013, 10:11 am

    My favorite is cheese and crackers!

  • Ashley April 18, 2013, 10:11 am

    I feel like I go through phases where I’m obsessed with a snack and then 3 weeks later I HAVE to have something different! One of my favorites is having hard-boiled eggs hand, always peeling the shells ahead of time to save time during the snackage. 🙂 I like a greek yogurt with a hard-boiled egg, tons of protein. I also love a smashed hard-boiled egg mixed with avocado on a piece of toast. I love snacks. 🙂

  • Melissa April 18, 2013, 10:12 am

    I love mini sweet peppers halved & stuffed with hummus with green olives sliced on top. Thanks.

  • Pamela April 18, 2013, 10:12 am

    I love to snack on peanut butter toast with raisins! And, of course, grabbing a quick cheese stick out of the fridge, paired with something else or alone, will always do!

  • Katie April 18, 2013, 10:13 am

    I love avocado on a corn tortilla with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Adding cheese would be great too!

  • Emma April 18, 2013, 10:13 am

    Banana with natural peanut butter is my go-to snack to keep me full and happy 🙂 Great pre-run fuel too!

  • Lele April 18, 2013, 10:14 am

    My favorite healthy snack is pistachios. They are so fun to eat!

  • Ashley April 18, 2013, 10:15 am

    I love wheat thins and hummus. Or, a frozen gogurt!

  • Sara April 18, 2013, 10:18 am

    Favorite snack is any fruit. Bananas are very easy to eat on the go as well as granola bars!

  • Glenneth April 18, 2013, 10:18 am

    my favorite snack is a handful of almonds!

  • Ashley April 18, 2013, 10:19 am

    One of my favorites is veggies and hummus! Mini peppers, cucumber slices, even mushrooms dipped in hummus is awesome!

  • rachel April 18, 2013, 10:19 am

    I love greek yogurt with fruit and granola! And pear slices with cream cheese and cinnamon. Also recently I’ve been obsessed with bananas and nutella SO GOOD

  • Christine @ BookishlyB April 18, 2013, 10:20 am

    Caitlyn, you’ve become a cheese pimp! 😉 I’m definitely a fan of some good cheddar or brie, but I’m not sure if it’s really that healthy between the fat and sodium…

  • Stephanie April 18, 2013, 10:22 am

    I love hummus with cucumbers.

  • Kelly April 18, 2013, 10:22 am

    Awesome!! I love to make a “snack plate” — it also feels gourmet! I use different items depending on what I have on hand… but it ALWAYS includes cheese (good for calcium and protein), nuts (almonds usually), a veggie (cut up celery, cukes, sliced tomatoes, etc with salt and pepper!), maybe a “dip” of some sort (hummus, guac, etc.), and sometimes olives or a pickle spear. I get loads of nutrients and different textures and it couldn’t be quicker!!

  • Katie April 18, 2013, 10:22 am

    Apple and PB!

  • Tamara April 18, 2013, 10:23 am

    Yogurt with trail mix on top!

  • Chelsea April 18, 2013, 10:23 am

    I love hummus with carrots.

  • Megan April 18, 2013, 10:23 am

    Apple and PB or carrots and hummus!!!

  • Caitlin April 18, 2013, 10:24 am

    Sliced cucumbers with a soy ginger dressing for dipping. I also love mashing up an avocado with some chia seeds, lime juice and a little garlic. The individual cheese snacks are great alone or paired with almost anything!

  • Missy April 18, 2013, 10:25 am

    My latest find: Trader Joe’s Veggie and Flaxseed Tortilla Chips with their Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole.

    That “Build a Smart Snack” tool is awesome!

  • Jennifer April 18, 2013, 10:25 am

    I’m a big fan of hummus + crackers or veggies. I also love dates + coconut butter. YUM

  • Lisa April 18, 2013, 10:26 am

    On my way out the door I like to grab a handful of almonds and a banana. Those cheese and tomato kabobs look like my kind of snack 🙂

  • Grace April 18, 2013, 10:26 am

    All this talk of cheese and snacks is making me hungry! One of my favorite snacks is an heirloom tomato salad. The more colorful the better. So a few small chopped heirloom tomatoes, a sargento mozzarella stick chopped into bite sized pieces, a splash of extra virgin olive oil, splash of balsamic vinegar and a bit of sea salt. DELISH!

    • Amanda April 18, 2013, 9:34 pm

      I make this salad too but also add fresh basil! It’s fabulous.

  • Claire @ Live and Love to Eat April 18, 2013, 10:26 am

    String cheese is always packed when I’m on the go – along with a piece of fruit! The combination of protein/carbs/fat is essential to keep me full.

  • Kate April 18, 2013, 10:27 am

    Apple slices with chunky almond butter!

  • Mallory April 18, 2013, 10:27 am

    MMMM Cheese!!! I love apples with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top! It is like apple pie without all the bad stuff 🙂 Yummy when you have a sweet tooth!

  • Julie April 18, 2013, 10:27 am

    Granny Smith apples & peanut butter!

  • Jessica April 18, 2013, 10:29 am

    The never-boring, easy lettuce wraps!

    Just keep a head of lettuce (bib, butter, whatever!) on standby and roll up your favorite combination!

    Here are my main players (I usually do 2-3 items per wrap):
    Deli Meat
    Shredded carrots

  • F. Plvan April 18, 2013, 10:29 am

    My favorite snack is a baked cracker topped with cheese and then topped with a tab of salsa. Delicious, quick, and easy portion control!

  • Katherine April 18, 2013, 10:30 am

    I love smoothies, greek yogurt with fruit, or fruit and peanut butter.

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 10:30 am

    I finally just discovered Fitnessista’s amazeballs! Delicious snacking discovery! I prep a batch on Sunday and grab and go all week.

  • Lauren April 18, 2013, 10:31 am

    my favorite healthy snack is greek yogurt & fruit! chobani lemon with blackberries is what i’ve been loving lately.

  • Caitlin April 18, 2013, 10:31 am

    I’m a fan of peanut butter toast with banana slices (cut short, not long)! Also, cheese and grapes; it makes me feel like I’m at a wine tasting!

  • Christina April 18, 2013, 10:31 am

    These are great… for really simple snacks I buy the bag of crudites (has brocooli califlower and carrots) from TJs, usually eat it with hummus. But your ideas are much neater!
    Brie melted on pears with a little balsamic is amazing too.

  • Juliene April 18, 2013, 10:32 am

    right now our go to snack has been dried fruit. its easy to tote in the diaper bag and my little man loves it as much as i do so its easy to share!

  • Amy @ The Nifty Foodie April 18, 2013, 10:32 am

    Greek Yogurt is my favorite. I like to mix in a little cereal as well for a crunch. 🙂

  • Beth Jamieson April 18, 2013, 10:32 am

    I’ve always been a big snacked and prefer to snack over big meals. I like to make “trail mix” with roasted almonds or cashews and add dark chocolate chips and sometimes a favorite cereal like oatmeal squares. Yum!

  • Ani Danelz April 18, 2013, 10:32 am

    My favorite snack is 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese topped with a small handful of raw almonds, a chopped apple, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Perfect healthy snack that is loaded with protein. My go-to quick snack if I’m running around is a Larabar. Just a few all-natural ingredients that I feel good about eating.

  • Kristy April 18, 2013, 10:32 am

    My favorite healthy snack is…drumroll please…almonds mixed with craisins! The sweet and tart of the craisins perfectly compliment the almonds! So easy to make – I simply dump some craisins into a ziploc bag of almonds.

  • Dawn April 18, 2013, 10:33 am

    I guess I am boring, my favorite snack is grabbing a piece of fruit out of the fruit bowl. Though much like your Henry, My daughter has taken to borrowing my snacks – right out of my mouth if she can.

  • Danielle J April 18, 2013, 10:33 am

    Greek yogurt with honey
    Handful of almonds
    Apple with almond butter
    Puffed rice cereal w almond milk and honey

    Yum! 🙂

  • Melissa April 18, 2013, 10:33 am

    I love carrots with hummus!

  • Andrea B. April 18, 2013, 10:33 am

    We eat a ton of string cheese at our house. I also love apple slices with peanut butter.

  • katie April 18, 2013, 10:33 am

    One of my favorite snacks is blue corn tortilla chips dipped in hummus and tomato sauce. It seriously makes me so happy.

  • Kellie April 18, 2013, 10:34 am

    My favorite snacks are brown rice cakes either topped with pb and bananas, or cheese and apples!

  • Morgan April 18, 2013, 10:34 am

    Either an apple or some wheat thins with laughing cow cheese!

  • Sarah April 18, 2013, 10:34 am

    Yogurt or some trail mix are my go to snacks!

  • Monica April 18, 2013, 10:35 am

    I like apples and sliced cheese – because you can’t eat nut butter for EVERY snack.*

    *yes you can.

  • Tori April 18, 2013, 10:35 am

    Apple with melted cheese. YUM!

  • Trisha B April 18, 2013, 10:35 am

    Definitely string cheese and almonds!

  • Megan April 18, 2013, 10:36 am

    My family’s favorite snack is sliced banana with sprinkles. The kids all think it’s a dessert which makes me happy because they are getting a lot more nutrients than ice cream or a cookie would give them!!

  • Julia April 18, 2013, 10:36 am

    I have so many favorite snacks: apples & PB, carrots & hummus and string cheese are probably my top 3.

  • Lindsay April 18, 2013, 10:36 am

    My favorite snack is a clementine (or any fruit) a cheese stick and crackers!
    perfect for on the go or in a mtg or before/after a workout

  • Jessica April 18, 2013, 10:36 am

    I like apple slices with natural chunky peanut butter or red bell pepper slices with hummus. Lots of fun, new ideas in this post I can’t wait to try though. Thank you!

  • Sarah @ Yogi in Action April 18, 2013, 10:36 am

    My favourite snack is a fruit smoothie- right now my absolute favourite is: 1 banana, handful of peach slices (frozen), spinach (I steam it first so I can pack more in- just boil water in a tea kettle and then pour it over the spinach), yogurt, peanut butter, cinnamon and some almond milk. I make it in the time it takes for my coffee to brew!

  • Elisabeth April 18, 2013, 10:36 am

    My favorite snack is one of those Sargento (or Frigo Cheesehead brand) cheese sticks with Kashi Pita crackers.

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 10:37 am

    For a savory snack, I toast one Arnold’s whole wheat sandwich thin and spread a laughing cow light Swiss cheese wedge on top with two slices of smoked hickory tofurkey. It is a very flavorful, non messy, open faced sandwich for only 130 calories. For a sweet snack, I like a handful of trail mix.

  • Wanda April 18, 2013, 10:37 am

    I love apples and almond butter. Not so healthy, peanut Sundrops.

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 10:37 am

    I love banana with almond butter cut up, sometimes with a sprinkle of coconut. Or hummus on anything is always good. 🙂

  • Kate April 18, 2013, 10:37 am

    Pink lady apple and almond butter 🙂

  • Devon April 18, 2013, 10:37 am

    oooh such a hard choice! I think it’s a toss up between apples drenched in almond butter, smashed avocado and hardboiled egg on toast and pistachios tossed in a cup of greek yogurt. In the summer, “caprese” kabobs are forever in my fridge. YAY CHEESE!

  • Monica April 18, 2013, 10:39 am

    I love some almonds with raisins at the middle of the day, or an apple with peanut butter at mid-afternoon =D

  • Rachel G. April 18, 2013, 10:39 am

    Amazing giveaway! I love the Triscuit thins + hummus or a bit of tuna salad. So easy to make ahead of time and then just dip in for a few bites throughout the week.

  • Ann April 18, 2013, 10:39 am

    I have a 6 month old at home and am also on the go and busy all day. My favorite go to snack is apples slices with cheese. It is easy to prepare and keeps me going.

  • Megan S April 18, 2013, 10:39 am

    I eat a ton of string cheese and apples. Lots of Greek yogurt snacks, bard boiled eggs and fruit and almond butter!

  • Lanie April 18, 2013, 10:39 am

    Greek yogurt and fuji apples are my two favorite snacks!

  • Sierra April 18, 2013, 10:40 am

    Apples with but butter or cheese with crackers

  • jeannie April 18, 2013, 10:40 am

    low fat ricotta cheese with a little cinnamon mixed it… its soooo delicious! or cheesey (ANY cheese) with either a fruit or some nuts. Or just a big ole scoop of nut better right out of the jar. Yummmmmmmmmm

  • Lindsay April 18, 2013, 10:40 am

    Lately I am living off Blue Diamond flavored almonds. The habanero BBQ are my fav!

  • Casey April 18, 2013, 10:41 am

    Snacks are so hard! I try to keep them as healthy as I can with raw almonds, an apple with almond butter, string cheese (always a perfect option!), anything dipped in hummus or a yogurt. YUM!

  • Sarah April 18, 2013, 10:41 am

    My favorite snack at the moment are almonds mixed with Trader Joe’s toasted coconut chips. Super filling, as a little goes a long way so I don’t overdo it!

  • melanie April 18, 2013, 10:42 am

    greek yogurt, fruit and roasted almonds, yum!

  • Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life April 18, 2013, 10:42 am

    I love string cheese and cheese sticks just the way they are …. there is nothing better than CHEESE!!!

  • Meagan April 18, 2013, 10:42 am

    fave healthy snack is…apples with PB! but cheese with veggies is my go-to if i want something savory. so good!

  • Ben April 18, 2013, 10:43 am

    Trail mix! Just visit Whole Foods and customize your mix using the trail mix bar.

  • Nicole April 18, 2013, 10:43 am

    I do peanut butter crackers when I’m at work, since it’s easy to eat at my desk.

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 10:43 am

    homemade trail mix!

  • jackie April 18, 2013, 10:43 am

    In the summer, I love a homemade popsicle or a smoothie for a snack! Something cool and refreshing. In the cooler months, an apple with cheddar cheese slices hits the spot!

  • Samantha April 18, 2013, 10:44 am

    I love cheese sticks with a piece of fruit! I need something I can just grab and go!

  • Nikki B April 18, 2013, 10:44 am

    Cheese and grapes!

  • maija April 18, 2013, 10:44 am

    my recent surprisingly mobile snack is a pouch of salmon, which you can dump in a red pepper. sounds weird but it works…

  • Linnea April 18, 2013, 10:44 am

    I love cottage cheese with 4 bean salad on top (it comes in a jar … green beans, kidney beans, wax beans, and garbanzo beans) … I either do it in a bowl or on top of crackers.

  • Sarah C April 18, 2013, 10:45 am

    I’m a cheese and crackers type of girl. I love pre-packaged cheese pieces, it is so easy to grab and go. I eat it with a big wasa-type cracker.

    Not as portable, but we have started making afternoon smoothies. My toddler is boycotting fruits and veggies in their natural form, so I put everything in my blender cup for smoothies – spinach, carrots, banana, greek yogurt and some unsweetened cranberry juice. Sometimes I add some ground flaxseed for added fiber. It’s about 150 calories and it keeps us full for several hours. Instead of cocktail hour, we have smoothie hour!

  • Rebecca April 18, 2013, 10:45 am

    I’m a big fan of ants on a log, even as an adult! Celery for a good crunch, raisins for a little sweetness and the pb helps keep me full.

  • Alli April 18, 2013, 10:45 am

    I love celery and any nut butter! I put it all in a Tupperware and go! Lets not forget that string cheese is always a staple!

  • Kayla April 18, 2013, 10:46 am

    Yogurt covered cranberries! Yum!

  • Abbey April 18, 2013, 10:46 am

    OMG I WANT THE CHEESE! My usual go-to is the bag of almonds and craisins I have stashed in my work desk, but I also love apples+almond butter!

  • Hilda April 18, 2013, 10:46 am

    My favorite snack is sliced mango and kiwi topped with fresh lemon juice. I love it!

  • samantha April 18, 2013, 10:46 am

    Love string cheese – I probably eat one everyday! I also love to snack on yogurt with almonds and a drizzle of honey – yum! 🙂

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 10:47 am

    I like almonds!

  • marie April 18, 2013, 10:47 am

    For me it’s a tie between homemade trail mix & a wasa cracker spread with Laughing Cow cheese and topped with a sliced boiled egg.

  • Emily @ The Swallow Flies April 18, 2013, 10:48 am

    Ah! I would love to win this! I eat SO much cheese. Lately, it’s been cheese, an apple, and wasabi peas from Trader Joe’s. Mmm, mmm, mmm!

  • Monica April 18, 2013, 10:48 am

    Yumm where do I start? Medjool dates with raw almond butter, sun butter with a banana, apples chopped and microwaved.. Topped with Greek yogurt, cinnamon, and sliced toasted almonds if I’m fancy 😉

  • Rebecca April 18, 2013, 10:48 am

    Lately I’ve been loving a big bowl of chopped celery with some balsamic vinegar, eaten with a fork. Sounds weird, but it’s great for snacking while watching TV, it’s low calorie, and it’s nice and crunchy!

  • Claire April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

    Just when my Toddler was starting to be mobile, banana with peanut butter was my go-to!

  • Brittany April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

    Carrots, crackers and hummus! So good and filling, too!

  • LMN April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

    does wine and cheese count as a healthy snack? wine in a sippy cup is a snack the go? 🙂

    • Caitlin April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

      yes 😉 lets be friends.

  • Rachel April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

    I love a sliced apple with sunbutter!

  • Hannah April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

    english muffin with pb&banana. the old standby

  • Trina April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

    Apples and peanut butter are my absolute favorite! Although pretty much anything with peanut butter is a go in my book!

  • Hil April 18, 2013, 10:49 am

    I love homemade spiced pita chips: take whole wheat pita and cut it up into triangles. Combine a bit of olive oil with cumin, coriander, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper in a big bowl, then toss the pita triangles in the oil until coated. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until crunchy. (You may want to give them a toss mid cooking.) These are delicious plain or with hummus.

  • Stephanie April 18, 2013, 10:50 am

    My go to is Apple with peanut butter. Hummus is always good too (on almost anything!)

  • Amy@ahealthyandhappyheart April 18, 2013, 10:50 am

    My favorite snack is a cut up banana with almond butter! Great ideas!

  • Jacqueline April 18, 2013, 10:50 am

    Anything with almonds makes for an awesome snack!

  • Kate April 18, 2013, 10:50 am

    Great ideas for incorporating cheese and fruits/vegetables in new ways! I love an apple with almond butter – simple and delicious.

  • Sorayya April 18, 2013, 10:51 am

    Omg! I love cheese and pairing it with something sweet like apples for that sweet/salty combo. I also love melty cheese on toast anytime 😉

  • Katie April 18, 2013, 10:52 am

    favorite quick snack= banana and peanut butter, or celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins. i’m also a fan of cottage cheese with a little bit of jam

  • Beaty April 18, 2013, 10:52 am

    I love half a banana with a spoonful of peanut butter. Snacks are super important at our house too!

  • melissa April 18, 2013, 10:52 am

    favorite snacks lately are smoothies 🙂

  • Caroline April 18, 2013, 10:53 am

    Well right now I’m eating dried mango with sunbutter but I love anything sweet + salty together! Cheese + fruit combo might be my all time favorite!

  • Holly April 18, 2013, 10:54 am

    Fruit and almonds!

  • Gina April 18, 2013, 10:54 am

    Fruit and yogurt…or peanut butter!

  • Judith April 18, 2013, 10:54 am

    I love yogurt mixed with fruit and some cereal…also, light popcorn mixed with nuts and raisins! So good! Also, use my immersion blender to make fruit and Greek yogurt smoothies — a good way to use fruit that is on its last leg!

  • Carolyn April 18, 2013, 10:54 am

    My go-to is pretzels with some better’n peanut butter. But I also eat string cheese like it’s my job!

  • Rachel April 18, 2013, 10:54 am

    I’ve always loved sliced apple and really sharp cheddar cheese. My Mom still makes this for me when I visit.

  • Megan A. April 18, 2013, 10:55 am

    My favorite on the go snack is Trader Joe’s nut mixes. I pour some in a cup, a little bag, or just carry around the big bag snacking as I go.

  • Krystan April 18, 2013, 10:56 am

    First, I have to say this would be perfect for pregnant me cuz I am OBSESSED with string cheese right now…like 2-3 a day! lol

    Ashley from My Food N Fitness Diaries turned me on to this easy snack – banana, spoonful of peanut butter, and a little handful on chocolate chips. Heat in the microwave for like 20 seconds. It is sooo good, great for a sweet craving, and it is sooo filling even for a pregnant woman!

  • Hayley @ Running on Pumpkin April 18, 2013, 10:56 am

    I love anything with a tortilla! Tortilla topped with nut butter, cottage cheese, normal cheese, pumpkin, banana or anything else. You can fold it like a quesadilla or roll it up!

  • Abby April 18, 2013, 10:57 am

    OMG I love cheese!!!!!!!!!!!!! Apple and colby jack cheese is a favorite.. I also like Lactaid’s cottage cheese and pineapple! Yum yum!!! ZOMG I want all the cheese!!

  • Veronica K April 18, 2013, 10:57 am

    I love snacks more than main meals! I usually have carrots + hummus, string cheese + nuts, + apple + ab, or if I am not busy (or lazy) a smoothie!

  • Christin April 18, 2013, 10:57 am

    I do love a warm pear with a dollop of vanilla yogurt on top. Most days at work it’s dried plums (yes, prunes) with a handful of almonds. Sweet + salty!

  • April April 18, 2013, 10:58 am

    I like to take snack cheese stick and wrap it in sliced turkey with a side of crackers. Otherwise an apple or pear with nut butter. Smoothies are a standby as well.

  • LizW April 18, 2013, 10:58 am

    Cheese and crackers is my new favorite post-long-run snack! (served by my husband while I take an ice bath!)

    I also LOVE PB bananas 🙂

  • Stephanie April 18, 2013, 10:59 am

    I love fruit + nut butter (apples dipped in almond butter, bananas with peanut butter, etc). Yummy!

  • Alexis April 18, 2013, 10:59 am

    I love an apple with pb or cheese. and wine 😀 best snack ever.

  • Ally April 18, 2013, 10:59 am

    I LOVE the sargento sharp cheddar sticks. They’re the best. 🙂

  • Amy H. April 18, 2013, 10:59 am

    I’m a fan of a sliced Gala apple with some almond butter. Yum!

  • Kelly April 18, 2013, 11:00 am

    Banana & peanut butter!!

  • Beth M April 18, 2013, 11:00 am

    I love Larabars or cheese/crackers/hummus.

    PB mixed with greek yogurt with an apple to dip in it 🙂 I love cheese too!

  • Lauren S April 18, 2013, 11:02 am

    I love a whole wheat tortilla with PB&J or a Wasa cracker topped with egg salad.

  • Melissa April 18, 2013, 11:03 am

    Red pepper slices! Yum.

  • Amy Q April 18, 2013, 11:03 am

    I like to leave hard boiled eggs in the fridge at all times, and then I whip myself up a deviled egg (no mayo, but a combo of different mustards, siracha, lime juice and sometimes chili paste) when I’m looking for a snack that will satisfy.

  • melani April 18, 2013, 11:03 am

    greek yogurt + fruit is definitely my favorite go to quick snack.

  • Franny April 18, 2013, 11:03 am

    Eggs! they’re so easy to boil a bunch up and then have to snack on. cheap and easy!

  • Jessica April 18, 2013, 11:03 am

    My favorite snack is greek yogurt, strawberries and a tablespoon of peanut butter! OMG! SO good!!

  • Alli April 18, 2013, 11:04 am

    A handful of almonds and an apple.

  • Shephalli April 18, 2013, 11:04 am

    I love cheese and nuts!

  • Caitlyn April 18, 2013, 11:05 am

    Pickles. I love to eat pickles on their own, straight from the jar – especially Trader Joe’s dill pickles… Mmmm.

  • Lyn @ Life Lyn Style April 18, 2013, 11:05 am

    frozen grapes are a great go to snack!

  • Sharon April 18, 2013, 11:06 am

    By far my favorite snack is tomatoes with fresh mozzarella cheese. I used to have crackers with it, but in the attempt to rein in my carb intake, I’ve scratched the crackers and just gobble up the cheese and tomatoes. It is a great on-the-go snack because I typically have the tomatoes cut up ahead of time. YUM!

  • FitBritt@MyOwnBalance April 18, 2013, 11:06 am

    My favorite snack is a Chobani yogurt with toppings (basically recreating any delicious creation from Chobani Soho). My two favorites are Chobani plain with pineapple, hazelnut, shredded coconut and a touch of agave or my own creation: Chobani Passionfruit yogurt with cut up bananna and sunflower seeds. Yum. I gotta go get a snack now.

  • Becca April 18, 2013, 11:07 am

    Pre-proportioned trail mix. With a ratio of one chocolate chip to two almonds. 😀

  • Emily B. April 18, 2013, 11:07 am

    Apples! Plain or with cheese, pb or yogurt.

  • Reghan April 18, 2013, 11:08 am

    My fav snack is a banana with peanut/nut butter! I have an 8 month old boy so I also need quick snacks these days 😉

  • Nikki April 18, 2013, 11:08 am

    It is hard to pick a favorite, but a granny smith apple with cheese or peanut butter is always a winner!

  • Karen April 18, 2013, 11:08 am

    Peanut butter and an apple for the win. I never get tired of it!

  • Cgirl1 April 18, 2013, 11:10 am

    I love basil, tomatoes and fresh mozza – all sprinkled with balsamic vinegar. I just made myself very hungry!

  • julia April 18, 2013, 11:11 am

    Banana with almond butter.

  • Melissa April 18, 2013, 11:11 am

    Fruit and veggies are my favorite healthy snack!

  • gina April 18, 2013, 11:11 am

    i also have an active toddler son! Favorite snack is triscuits with Almond/sunflower butter and apple.

    Apple and cheese is my fave!

    One of my favorite snacks is cheese and crackers – old stand by and always so tasty. I like to pair it with some sort of fruit too like apple slices or grapes.

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 11:14 am

    My favorite healthy snack is wasa crackers with hummus and feta cheese.

  • crystal April 18, 2013, 11:15 am

    I thought you wern’t eating dairy?

    • Caitlin April 18, 2013, 11:17 am

      Oh no! I wasn’t because I was breastfeeding and Henry is sensitive to it. But now that I’m not… OMG give me all the cheese I can possibly eat and let me stuff it into my mouth. 🙂

      Hey, how are you liking the BoB Revolution? I remember you said you got one…

      • crystal April 18, 2013, 7:27 pm

        Got it. I am trying not to eat much but give myself one serving per day, darn delicious cheese. I love the stroller, unfourtunatly my lil girl does not at the moment. Gotta love the ergo or I would never get out!

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 11:15 am

    My favorite healthy snack is nut butter smeared on banana. YUM!

  • Shanna April 18, 2013, 11:15 am

    I love smoothies in portable cups!

    Hummus and veggies!! Easy and filling.

  • Brandi April 18, 2013, 11:15 am

    My fav snack greek yogurt mixed with peanut butter powder. It’s almost like eating a rich mousse! Healthy, filling, and packed with protein!

  • Allison April 18, 2013, 11:16 am

    plain Greek yogurt mixed with creamy peanut butter and apple or banana!

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 11:17 am

    Peanut butter and banana or a Greek yogurt is my favorite.

  • Katie April 18, 2013, 11:17 am

    Avocado toast with a slice of cheese! Or peanut butter toast with banana! Ah I’m hungry now…

  • Lindsey N. April 18, 2013, 11:17 am

    I love roasted soya/soybeans – you just buy the frozen/shucked kind and roast with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt and parmesan cheese!

    But I always have a low-fat cheese stick after work before the gym – so it would be amazing to win this!

  • Erin April 18, 2013, 11:17 am

    I’m an apple and colby girl, myself. Yay for sweet and savory! That really makes we wish I had some colby cheese….

  • Rachel F April 18, 2013, 11:18 am

    I loveeee a juicy grapefruit for snacks!!!

  • Elizabeth April 18, 2013, 11:18 am

    My favorite on-the-go snack is probably pepperjack with whole wheat crackers 🙂

  • Ashley M. [at] (never home)maker April 18, 2013, 11:18 am

    A year’s supply of cheese, please! Uhm, my favorite easy + fast snack is definitely apples w/ cheese. In fact, I might just go get some right now.

  • Alyse April 18, 2013, 11:19 am

    I love cheesy and a piece of fruit. Or yogurt and some nuts.

  • Leslie April 18, 2013, 11:20 am

    I love cheese, and my goto snack is a string cheese stick with almonds. But another fun on-the-go meal/snack is from the days when my kiddos were toddlers: whole-wheat tortilla, spread with nut butter, put in a banana, and roll the whole thing up!

  • Jessica @ FromtheKitchentotheRoad April 18, 2013, 11:20 am

    Apples and peanut butter. Yum! I also love peanut butter on whole grain homemade toast. Any fruit is a great snack for me as well.

  • Lisa April 18, 2013, 11:20 am

    Cheese, hard boiled eggs, and bananas with peanut butter are all my go tos!

  • Sarah G. April 18, 2013, 11:21 am

    My go-to snack is apple slices with peanut butter. It always reminds me of an episode of ‘The West Wing’ when Josh praises this snack by saying, “I’ve gotten entire pieces of legislation through Congress on apples and peanut butter.”

  • evelyn April 18, 2013, 11:22 am

    I love to melt cheese on crackers for a quick snack!

  • Courtney O April 18, 2013, 11:22 am

    my snacks change, right now I’m on a fruit and yogurt kick!

  • Britt April 18, 2013, 11:22 am

    I love making my own trail mix – almonds, raisins, chocolate chips, sometimes I throw in popcorn. Apple slices with a wedge of laughing cow cheese is also delicious. I’m also a bit of a string cheese addict.

  • Becki Walker April 18, 2013, 11:23 am

    I love smoothies, or anything with hummus…Oh, and string cheese and almonds of course!

  • TanyaS April 18, 2013, 11:24 am

    I love prosciutto wrapped around apple slices. Sweet and salty for the win! But melted cheese on anything is awesome!

  • Hope April 18, 2013, 11:24 am

    Lately I’ve been eating a light string cheese and a piece of fruit. Separately! I just can’t mix the two.

  • Megan April 18, 2013, 11:24 am

    my favorite snack is trail mix, either homemade or store bought! My daughter loves this cheese, she would be in heaven with a years supply!

  • Liz April 18, 2013, 11:24 am

    I love to dip fresh veggies (like radishes, celery, broccoli) into plain greek yogurt topped with with zaatar and olive oil. For an on-the-go snack, it is hard to beat the combo of fruit+cheese/hard boiled egg.

  • Stephanie April 18, 2013, 11:25 am

    Love some veggies, cheese, and hummus!

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 11:25 am

    We also have a near 11 month old on the go and here’s our favorite quick snack of the moment: combine sunflower seeds, almonds, raisins, coconut flakes and voila! We add things as we have them such as pumpkin seeds, etc. Totally do the PB dates in our house too. I think I must have seen it on your blog before? I also pre-make our own pita chips for hummus and kale chips for when we’re feeling snack-y for chips! Pita chips are so easy with Ezekiel pitas because they come apart easily and can olive oil, salt and thyme them before popping in oven and slicing.

  • Stephanie April 18, 2013, 11:26 am

    apples and peanut butter!

  • Kristin @ Celebrate The Goodness April 18, 2013, 11:26 am

    One of my new favorites is a wheat pita with peanut butter, apples and cinnamon. Yummy! I’ve never tried the kaboobs before. I definitely need to give those a whirl. Thanks for sharing!

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 11:26 am

    The good old apple and peanut butter!

  • Cecily April 18, 2013, 11:27 am

    My favorite healthy snack is a banana dunked in yogurt. It may not be the easiest to eat on the go, but I’m sure an active little man would love to sneak a bite of the banana!

  • Kaitlin @4loveofcarrots April 18, 2013, 11:27 am

    I usually grab a piece of fruit like an apple or banana for a quick snack on the go!

  • Amy April 18, 2013, 11:27 am

    haha I could use that up in way less than a year. I lovvvvvve string cheese! That’s a favorite snack alone or with turkey or apple slices. And bananas and pb are tremendously satisfying!

  • Juli D. April 18, 2013, 11:27 am

    Banana with a handful of almonds!

  • laura April 18, 2013, 11:28 am

    I love plain rice cakes topped with a nut butter

  • Terri R. April 18, 2013, 11:28 am

    My favorite snack right now is pepperjack NutThins w/hummus & pistachios!

  • Corey April 18, 2013, 11:28 am

    I love a bowl of cereal and milk as a snack! Pretzels and peanuts are a close second.

  • Kelsey April 18, 2013, 11:29 am

    I love stringing the cheese as small as possible! It tastes the best that way 😉

    My favorite snack is a frozen peach smoothie. Peaches + coconut milk = easy portable AND delicious!

  • Meredith April 18, 2013, 11:29 am

    apples with peanut butter
    GORP with a handful of semi-sweet choc chips and unsweetened coconut thrown in 🙂

  • Shannon C April 18, 2013, 11:30 am

    Greek yogurt with a handful of grape nuts!

  • heidi chesko April 18, 2013, 11:31 am

    I LOVE frozen grapes! I eat them with pre-sliced cheese squares…..sooooo good!

  • Jenni April 18, 2013, 11:31 am

    I love string cheese when I can get my hands on it! I’m going to have to try the pear and celery ideas.

  • Julie April 18, 2013, 11:31 am

    I’m a fan of hard boiled eggs and vegan jerky for savory snacks. One of my faves is quick trail mix – whatever dried fruit and nuts are around, plus coconut flakes and mini chocolate chips for pizzazz. A banana with on-the-go packets of nut butters are also great – I especially like Dark Chocolate Dreams 🙂
    Yes, there is a chocolate theme here. It’s almost as good as cheese!

  • Vivian April 18, 2013, 11:31 am

    Sunbutter on mini pretzels!

  • Carrie L April 18, 2013, 11:33 am

    I’m personally a big fan of hummus and carrots but the idea of cheese inside celery is definitely going to be an option going forward!!

  • Michelle M April 18, 2013, 11:33 am

    We always have string cheese in the house. I also love grabbing a hard boiled egg or when I have a little more time on my hand, popping some popcorn on the stove and adding just a touch of jalapeno seasoning. Mmmm…better go find a snack.

  • Meghan April 18, 2013, 11:34 am

    Homemade granola bars!

  • Amna April 18, 2013, 11:34 am

    Favorite snack is greek yogurt with a chopped up apple mixed in!

  • Leah April 18, 2013, 11:34 am

    Oh boy! What a great prize!! One of my favorite healthy snacks is celery with hummus!

  • Aimee M April 18, 2013, 11:34 am

    I still love ants on a log, but now I upgrade the peanut butter to almond butter and the raisins to whatever dried fruit I have on hand.

  • Chrissy April 18, 2013, 11:34 am

    Microwave popcorn, does that count as healthy? It’s definitely easy to prepare. 🙂

  • molly @ heart, sole & cereal April 18, 2013, 11:34 am

    i would love to win a year’s supply of sargento! so many of their snacks are my favorite for on the go – i love cheese sticks with fruit!

  • Jen F April 18, 2013, 11:36 am

    As others have said, I’m also a big fan of “ants on a log” – you can use any nut butter on top of your celery (or even cream cheese), and you can mix up the “ants” by using raisins, craisins, any fresh berry, or other dried fruit.

    Also, I love “caprese skewers” – mozzarella cheese, basil, cherry/grape tomatoes (usually works best if cut in half) all on a skewer (or you can call them kabobs if you want 😉 ) drizzled with balsamic.

    And thanks (to everyone) for all of the new snack ideas!

  • Susanne April 18, 2013, 11:39 am

    I’m all about the grapes and possibly an egg in the afternoon with my peach black tea – yum!

  • Barbara April 18, 2013, 11:41 am

    My favorite snack is definitely a homemade granola bar. I also love to melt cheese in a tortilla with a little salsa.

  • April April 18, 2013, 11:41 am

    Mmmm….I love Sargento cheese! When I was eating meat, I would wrap some turkey around a cheese stick and dip it into some hummus. Now, I love sugar snap peas from Trader Joe’s. They are so satisfying, crispy, and fresh!

  • Laura April 18, 2013, 11:41 am

    Some of my favorite snacks are raw veggies and hummus, a piece of fruit with peanut or almond butter, and hard-boiled eggs.

  • Allie April 18, 2013, 11:43 am

    Celery and dip is my go to snack. I always have peanut butter, hummus, and usually some other kind of dip in my fridge ready for snacking!

  • Alexis April 18, 2013, 11:44 am

    I’m a huge fan of “ants on a log” — celery, peanut butter with raisins sprinkled on top. I sort of feel like I’m five years old, but it’s a truly underrated snack (and this coming from someone who doesn’t like raisins!)

    Other winning combos include toast/peanut butter/banana slices/cinnamon sprinkle; apple and cheddar cheese and greek yogurt with oats/nuts stirred in. I’m sort of a snacker 😐

  • LaurenG April 18, 2013, 11:44 am

    Almonds, dried fruit and cheese is my favorite snack.

  • Barbie April 18, 2013, 11:45 am

    String cheese or just simply feta mixed with some cut up tomatoes. 🙂

  • La April 18, 2013, 11:47 am

    My favorite healthy snack are oatmeal bars full of nuts and dried fruit. Easy to grab when chasing around my 13-month old.

  • colleen April 18, 2013, 11:47 am

    i love to make my own trail mix with various combinations of nuts and dried fruits.

  • Jaime April 18, 2013, 11:50 am

    My current favorite snack is a simple caprese salad. I don’t put it on kabobs, but that would be fun! I make a bit in advance, then quickly dress it with balsamic and olive oil right before eating. YUM.

  • Chelsea April 18, 2013, 11:51 am

    I’ve been getting Graze boxes ( and my favorites are their seed snacks. I can’t get enough salty sunflower seeds!

  • Maria April 18, 2013, 11:51 am

    I love to stick cheese in the micro for a few seconds to melt it over apple slices!

  • Theresa April 18, 2013, 11:54 am

    One of my favorites is white cheddar + wheat thins + apple slices. Quick, easy and delicious! I’m sure I’ll be eating a lot more snacks like this soon enough – our first baby is due in August!

  • Nikki April 18, 2013, 11:54 am

    Yogurt bowls are my go-to. When my forever-running-on-the-go almost 2 year old sees it, he sits down for (maybe) 2 minutes so he can have some, too!

  • Joyce April 18, 2013, 11:55 am

    Any fruit/veg with some type of protein!

  • Halley S April 18, 2013, 11:56 am

    I always have cheese sticks at work for a late afternoon snack. My go-to snack is hummus and pita for something savory, or yogurt and oats for something sweet.

  • Lisa April 18, 2013, 11:56 am

    Greek yogurt with some raspberries and pistachios – yum!

  • Carol B April 18, 2013, 11:56 am

    Green apple and cheese or green apple and any kind of nut butter!!

  • Abbey April 18, 2013, 11:58 am

    My favorite snacks lately have been an apple and peanut butter or handful of almonds with dried cherries. You must try the dried cherries and almonds, so different from craisins!

  • Katie B April 18, 2013, 12:00 pm

    I’m all about smart snacks (and cheese, obvs). I really like fresh bell peppers and those mini bagels. Just not together. 🙂

  • Julie April 18, 2013, 12:01 pm

    Dannon’s vanilla yogurt w/ frozen strawberries mixed in!

  • betsy April 18, 2013, 12:01 pm

    My favorite snack is an apple and a handful of roasted almonds!

  • Pam April 18, 2013, 12:02 pm

    My favorite easy on the go snack would have to be graham crackers with almond butter and slices of banana. Although thinking about it now are graham crackers considered healthy?

  • Liz April 18, 2013, 12:02 pm

    Cheerios ‘trail mix’: dry plain Cheerios, raisins, and almonds. Always hits the spot and I can share the dry Cheerios with my 18 month old daughter!

  • Allison April 18, 2013, 12:05 pm

    Yogurt and applesauce or a yogurt and fruit smoothie.

  • Wendy Heath April 18, 2013, 12:05 pm

    I like a V8, some string cheese and some wheat thins with hummus… yum!

  • Lara April 18, 2013, 12:05 pm

    Lately it’s banana and almond butter, but I do like string cheese with a handful of almonds or cashews 🙂

  • Veronica April 18, 2013, 12:06 pm

    I bake a big loaf of quinoa bread and eat it with hummus or cheese.

  • Michelle S April 18, 2013, 12:06 pm

    Love all of those snacks! One of my favorite snacks is peanut butter on a rice cake with a few dried cranberries on top. The dried cranberries makes it taste like there is jelly on top.

  • Amy April 18, 2013, 12:07 pm

    These all look great- can’t wait to try a few! I love to make trailmix with whatever i have on hand for an easy snack, or sometimes I’ll make it by just mixing things from the bulk bins at Central Market or WF. I also love carrots! I chop a bunch at the beginning of the week and snack on them all day at work. Would love some cheese- thanks for hosting this 🙂

  • Mary April 18, 2013, 12:07 pm

    I love to grab a rice cake with Peanut butter. I stash that in my desk for a quick snack.

  • Johanna B April 18, 2013, 12:07 pm

    My favorite snack is an apple with a handful of almonds. Quick, easy, and quite tasty.

  • Miranda April 18, 2013, 12:07 pm

    frozen grapes!

  • talia April 18, 2013, 12:09 pm

    Almonds, string cheese or a portable fruit like a banana or apple!

  • Christi April 18, 2013, 12:09 pm

    Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil Triscuit crackers with Sharp Cheddar Cheese and halved cherry tomatoes. Yum.

  • Sarah Jayne April 18, 2013, 12:10 pm

    Right now I am loving hard boiled eggs paired with sliced avocado. Salt & pepper + a bit of sriracha. Perfect!

  • Faith April 18, 2013, 12:10 pm

    I’m constantly switching up my snacks, but I usually go with pre-portioned goodies like mini popcorn bags, cheese sticks or boxes of raisins. Sometimes I just grab a handful of nuts and make it work.

    Love these ideas!

  • roopa April 18, 2013, 12:11 pm

    String cheese!!! YUM 🙂

  • Jen April 18, 2013, 12:12 pm

    Favorite on the go snack – rolled up tortilla with almond butter, raisins, and banana or other fruit.

  • rebecca @ blueberry smiles April 18, 2013, 12:13 pm

    I love the watermelon idea!

  • Jenn April 18, 2013, 12:13 pm

    Okay, I am now officially starving after reading the post and the comments.

    My go to is carrots and hummus or the good old Celery and peanut butter.

  • Tracey April 18, 2013, 12:13 pm

    I love a glass of Spicy Hot Low-Sodium V8 with a cheese stick or hard-boiled egg. 🙂

  • jillian April 18, 2013, 12:14 pm

    i like apples (or another whole fruit) in the am, and nuts in the afternoon. super simple, but wholesome and filling. If i’m hungry hungry, i go to larabars!

  • Rebecca April 18, 2013, 12:17 pm


    My favorite “on the go” snack is raw almonds. I always have a bag in my desk at work.

  • Lil April 18, 2013, 12:18 pm

    Sliced pears placed in freezer for 10-15 minutes!

  • Coco April 18, 2013, 12:18 pm

    I know this sounds really weird.. but cheese and peanut butter or almond butter really rocks- and has a nice protein hit too 🙂

  • Kristina N. April 18, 2013, 12:20 pm

    Love these ideas! I make juice for the mornings and will sometimes make extra for a snack later in the afternoon. Healthy and quick since I make it the same time as breakfast. If I don’t make extra juice then hummus and carrots are my old standby 🙂

  • Robyn April 18, 2013, 12:23 pm

    Pears with a few almonds are my favorite go-to snack!

  • Kimberly April 18, 2013, 12:24 pm

    Totally love cheese and crackers!

  • Erika April 18, 2013, 12:25 pm

    Sliced banana with peanut butter and a few dark chocolate chips microwaved for 20 seconds. Even better with crushed up graham cracker on top!

  • Ashley April 18, 2013, 12:26 pm

    Wow, you covered so many good ones! But I love a making a “sandwich” by slicing a banana in half (long ways) and spreading it with almond butter, then covering with other half of the banana and eating! Mmmmmmm – and very filling!

  • Sara April 18, 2013, 12:27 pm

    I am pretty much obsessed with Sargento’s cheese sticks, whats also cool about that brand is that they are one of the only Gluten Free brands… 🙂

    My favorite snack aside from just eating a Sargento’s cheese stick is probably Avocado, Tomato’s and Feta. 🙂

    Thanks for the give away! 🙂

  • Jackie April 18, 2013, 12:27 pm

    Such great ideas! I love cheese. My favorite healthy snack is a cheese stick or a spoonfull of peanut butter (or cookie butter…). I also really love yogurt with pb & j or a banana with pb.

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 12:28 pm

    My go-to is trail mix! Nuts, dried fruit, and a little chocolate 🙂

  • Megan April 18, 2013, 12:28 pm

    Wow! I love cheese! My go-to snack right now is a hard boiled egg! Quick, easy, and a good source of protein!

  • Caroline April 18, 2013, 12:29 pm

    homemade trail mix or an apple with peanut butter! so simple but so good. Also, hardboiled eggs are a really simple thing to have on hand for protein-full snacks!

  • Jen April 18, 2013, 12:30 pm

    I love cheese on everything, but my favorite is cheese melted on french bread with pepper.

  • jessi April 18, 2013, 12:30 pm

    i love to throw some pitted dates, pecan halves and dark chocolate chips in a baggie – perfect to keep in my purse if i can’t get a meal quick enough. who says a few chocolate chips aren’t healthy?? 🙂

  • Lisa April 18, 2013, 12:32 pm

  • Jennifer April 18, 2013, 12:37 pm

    My personal favorite “easy fancy” healthy snack is a banana spread with peanut butter, rolled in coconut, and cut into pieces! (or not, I’ve eaten this whole many times). It combines 3 of my favorite flavors

  • Lisa April 18, 2013, 12:38 pm

    Laughing cow cheese spread on a thin slice of ham wrapped around a pickle!

  • Isela Grayson April 18, 2013, 12:38 pm

    Lately I’ve been loving cold, red delicious apples with crunchy peanut butter! If I’m wanting something sweet I’ll stuff some dates with pecans. Or strawberries with cottage cheese and whipped cream! If I don’t want to think too much about it…a cheese stick and any fruit!

  • Jen W. April 18, 2013, 12:38 pm

    My favorite snack is greek yogurt loaded with a handful of granola & fresh berries. Quick & easy – yummy too!

  • Isabella April 18, 2013, 12:38 pm

    I’ve been loving grapefruit. It’s a very messy snack but so very delicious.

  • Sandra A April 18, 2013, 12:39 pm

    dates + almond butter are the best! Taste like candy. But a yogurt or string cheese often makes it into my lunchbox, too 🙂

  • sophie April 18, 2013, 12:41 pm

    Hard boiled egg & an apple or hummus & celery/carrots. yum!

  • Jess April 18, 2013, 12:41 pm

    Half an avocado scooped straight from the skin with whole grain tortilla chips!

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 12:41 pm

    I love homemade trail mix with nuts and no-sugar added dried fruit!

  • Becky April 18, 2013, 12:41 pm

    Strawberries all my all time favorite food!

  • Brittany April 18, 2013, 12:50 pm

    I love cheese, especially cheddar. I got it from my mom. My favorite is broiling a piece of bread with cheddar slices on top until its bubbly!

  • Jess of Team Awesome April 18, 2013, 12:52 pm

    Yuuuum! I am a big fan of green apple with cocoa dusted almonds. If you eat them at the same time, it tastes like caramel apple!

    We buy sargento cheese sticks all the time! My fiancé would be so so happy if we won this!

  • Kelsey April 18, 2013, 12:52 pm

    My favorite snack is string cheese! It’s easy to just grab and go. But I am also addicted to making my own trail mix! I can be kind of picky, so it’s nice to make my own just the way I like it.

  • Becky P April 18, 2013, 12:52 pm

    My favorite quick and easy snack is cherry tomatoes. Sometimes, if I have a few minutes to spare, I’ll mix up some Greek yogurt and hot sauce to dip my ‘maters in!

  • Lauren April 18, 2013, 12:53 pm

    I do a lot of snacking with being a student and working an odd schedule as well. Not all my snacks are portable though – my favorite lately is banana Chobani with chocolate chips and walnuts! I’ve been into apples during class lately. I eat a string cheese every day that I’m on the go too!

  • Stephanie April 18, 2013, 12:53 pm

    My favorite, go-to snack is an apple with peanut butter. My husband thinks it’s weird the way I’ll take a bite of the apple, put some peanut butter at the “bottom” of the bite, and then take another bite.

  • Annie April 18, 2013, 12:54 pm

    Peanut butter and crackers

  • Paj April 18, 2013, 12:54 pm

    cheese of course!

  • Trisha April 18, 2013, 12:56 pm

  • Jolene (Homespun Heritage) April 18, 2013, 12:57 pm

    Great ideas and I do plan to go dive into my dates right now with some nutella…since I’m out of seed butter!

  • Jayhawk Jen April 18, 2013, 12:57 pm

    My current favorite is Chobani Black cherry or Pom or blood orange yogurt with a few dark chocolate chips… feels like a dessert, but the protein is very filling…

  • elissa April 18, 2013, 12:58 pm

    My favorite go to snack are smoothies. I just use whatever fruits I have on hand and need to use up. A couple minutes in the blender and I’m full til lunch!

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 12:58 pm

    I like apples and peanut butter or almond butter.

  • Michelle Tomes April 18, 2013, 12:59 pm

    Apple slices with peanut butter. Love ’em!

  • Caitlin P. April 18, 2013, 1:01 pm

    Almost every afternoon when I’m running between meetings at work I snack on an apple and string cheese. I peel the string cheese and wrap it around the apple slices of course 🙂

  • Sara @ fitcupcaker April 18, 2013, 1:01 pm

    That is a ton of cheese, like I dont enough of it lol. But I would love to win this! Ive never thought about adding cheese to celery. I did try cheese with apples for the first time this year and loved it more than I thought! Great snack ideas 🙂

  • Katie April 18, 2013, 1:02 pm

    I LOVE the fitnessista’s amazeballz – the PB&J and PB cup ones are my faves 🙂 It takes a second to make them and it’s a pain to wash my food processor, but they are SO worth it. Make a double batch and you have snacks for a week 🙂

  • Sandra April 18, 2013, 1:02 pm

    Cheese and crackers is my fav snack!

  • Amy April 18, 2013, 1:02 pm

    I’m pregnant and Sargento light string cheese (sometimes 2!) and grapes have gotten me through all-day nausea and now pregnancy snack attacks! My son also loves the cheddar/mozzarella blend (I think that’s it).

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs April 18, 2013, 1:03 pm

    I can always go for apple slices dipped in nut butter — delicious!

  • Joey April 18, 2013, 1:03 pm

    Cheese is one of my all time favorite snacks (& foods in general) but lately I’ve been snacking on plums, jazz apples, Greek yogurt & granola.

  • Michelle @ SFTS April 18, 2013, 1:03 pm

    My go-to healthy snacks are either homemade hummus (I like the Weight Watcher’s recipe the best – you don’t need tahini!) and celery OR kale chips with olive oil and sea salt. Both take about 5 seconds to prepare. Sometimes I just grab a light string cheese.

  • Erin April 18, 2013, 1:03 pm

    I alsways keep a Lara Bar in my purse. But at home my go to is a Triscuit with cheese. Or hummus. Or salsa. I’ll pretty much put anything on a Triscuit!

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 1:04 pm

    I like apples with peanut butter or trail mix!

  • Amy April 18, 2013, 1:05 pm

    Usually pepper slices will do the trick but sometimes a little bit of trail mix!

  • Chelsea H. April 18, 2013, 1:08 pm

    A honeycrisp apple and almond butter! Yum!

  • Sarah April 18, 2013, 1:08 pm

    Oh goodness, I would not be able to survive school without my little Trader Joe’s packets of roasted almonds. The perfect size to snack on while driving to work to school or sneak snacks between classes.

  • Nelly April 18, 2013, 1:08 pm

    Hard Boiled eggs!

  • Norma April 18, 2013, 1:09 pm

    I keep cheese sticks available & pre-cut veggies & fruit. I’m a pretty picky eater so I stick to basics 🙂

  • Shawn April 18, 2013, 1:09 pm

    I usually grab fruit…apple, grapes…but my favorite is fresh pineapple if in season (and isn’t too expensive 🙂 )

  • Catherine April 18, 2013, 1:10 pm

    My all time favorite go-to snack is peanut butter spread on a banana. If you’re feeling crazy, you can even top it with chocolate chips, raisins, craisins, nuts, seeds, or shredded coconut!

  • Caroline April 18, 2013, 1:10 pm

    CHEESE! Cheese and olives, cheese and veggies, cheese and apples…I also love cottage cheese!

  • lindsey April 18, 2013, 1:11 pm

    Cheese and nuts!! Yumm!

  • Kelly April 18, 2013, 1:12 pm

    My favorite snack is trail mix – sometimes I’ll buy it premade if I’m being lazy, or I’ll make a big batch myself and fill snack size baggies with it for a great on-the-go snack!

  • Kate April 18, 2013, 1:12 pm

    My go to snack is protein muffins. I just make 4 or 5 on Sunday and eat them through out the week!

  • kyla April 18, 2013, 1:13 pm

  • Heather R. April 18, 2013, 1:13 pm

    A bowl of yogurt topped with granola!

    Cheddar cheese & whole wheat crackers (specifically from Trader Joe’s)

  • Katherine April 18, 2013, 1:14 pm

    I love toast and PB or apples and PB but yesterday I tried 3 oz. of greek yogurt with 1 TB of PB and popped it in the freezer for two hours… delicious. I stirred a little honey in for sweetness and it was delicious!

  • Alexandra April 18, 2013, 1:17 pm

    Favourite healthy snack: banana with nut butter. Its an oldie, but SUCH a goodie.
    Also, healthy trail mix 🙂

    I love apples with PB!! Also apples with cheese is a close second…yum!

  • Erica April 18, 2013, 1:19 pm

    I love cheese! My favorite healthy snack is an apple and string cheese or not-string cheese stick. I sort of want to see how many times I can say cheese in one comment. Cheese on toast, cheese and veggies, cheese and fruits, cheese by itself… Yesterday I had a cheese stick and a slurpee. Don’t judge. 😉


  • Sarah April 18, 2013, 1:20 pm

    oikos fat-free flavored greek yogurt! add in some sliced fruit and a sprinkling of cereal, or some raisins for texture. mmm.

  • Ellie April 18, 2013, 1:21 pm

    it’s a definite toss up between carrots and hummus, and greek yogurt. LOVE both!

  • kristina April 18, 2013, 1:24 pm

    My go-to healthy snack is veggies with hummus! Yummy!

  • Anne Weber-Falk April 18, 2013, 1:25 pm

    Cheese and crackers with an apple.

  • Casey April 18, 2013, 1:27 pm

    I like to grab some yogurt or peanut butter toast when I can’t get to making a meal just yet!

  • Jen April 18, 2013, 1:29 pm

    My favorite snacks are so boring. Fruit, Clif Bars, yogurt, a piece of toast with cheese melted on it. All of these work and keep me happy! Just boring. 😉

  • JenP April 18, 2013, 1:30 pm

    I love veggies and dip. Healthy and easy.

  • Kelley April 18, 2013, 1:32 pm

    You know that age-old question: “If you had to choose one thing for the rest of your life, would you pick Cheese or Chocolate?” Cheese. Always cheese. I love cheese. I eat string cheese every day for a morning snack. I like to pair it with almonds. I also love making snack quasadillas, melted cheese on crackers, and mini bagel pizzas. I am so excited that my daughter now loves cheese as much as I do!

  • erin m. April 18, 2013, 1:32 pm

    I love crackers and pb!

  • Meg April 18, 2013, 1:35 pm

  • Megan (Braise The Roof) April 18, 2013, 1:35 pm

    I like to grab a banana and a greek yogurt or some nuts – I need my protein otherwise I’m hungry again about 14 minutes later. 🙂

  • Verna April 18, 2013, 1:36 pm

    My favorite snack lately has been potato salad or homemade zucchini bread.

  • Jill E. April 18, 2013, 1:36 pm

    apple and peanut butter!

  • Marysa April 18, 2013, 1:37 pm

    I love pears with cheese, too! I bake mine in the oven with brie. Best easy-to-go snack that keeps me full until my next meal (I work in a professional office and sometimes we don’t always get to eat a real lunch) is a handful of almonds, an apple and (prepared the night before) hard-boiled egg. This can keep me full until my next real meal. 🙂

  • Sarah April 18, 2013, 1:37 pm

    Your snacks are so fancy-pants! Plain raw almonds are my must-have. It’s amazing how long those tide me over. And fruit, whatever is in season.

  • Irina S. April 18, 2013, 1:43 pm

    A slice of homemade protein banana bread with a spoonful of almond butter. Mmmmmmmmmm

  • Ellee Wakasugi April 18, 2013, 1:44 pm

  • Megan April 18, 2013, 1:49 pm

    Carrots/Peppers with guacamole! I make a big batch of guac on Sunday and eat it all week.

  • Coco April 18, 2013, 1:50 pm

    You do NOT know how much I love string cheese…i almost always incorporate it into my snack since it has protein and keeps me full. I’ll usually pair it with a fruit or veggie 🙂

  • erin April 18, 2013, 1:52 pm

    My favorite healthy snack is trail mix. So yummy!

    I love pretzels, mustard, & cheese!

  • Denise P. April 18, 2013, 1:57 pm

    My favorite would be the no bake energy bites whose recipe was flying around the blogosphere a while back. I shared it with my bf who know makes them each Sunday for his snack during the week. He can’t stop raving about them and loves that they are customizable and you can try all sorts of nut butter, dried fruit options.

  • Lisa April 18, 2013, 1:58 pm

    I love a banana with almond butter!

    If I want something salty= a pickle and cheese. Sweet= dates all the way!

  • Ali April 18, 2013, 2:01 pm

    I love homemade larabars! I just process dates and almonds in my food processor, add a bit of vanilla extract and a handful of chocolate chips, and then form them into balls.

  • Abby April 18, 2013, 2:02 pm

    Chopped up watermelon and strawberries…love them together.

  • Debbie April 18, 2013, 2:03 pm

  • Marie April 18, 2013, 2:09 pm

    My favorite snack includes a banana and sunflowerseed butter..

    Are you giving Henry the cheese/ tomato kabob? I thought he was sensitive to dairy?

    • Caitlin April 18, 2013, 2:20 pm

      No 🙂 he just wanted it.

  • Sandy April 18, 2013, 2:10 pm

    My favorite healthy snack is rice crackers with hummus and cheese (string or laughing cow). YUM!

  • Kim T April 18, 2013, 2:11 pm

    Fruit and nut butters are a fave. Cheese sticks and other portable cheeses are always good. Pair with fruit, nuts, veggies and good to go.

  • Dominique April 18, 2013, 2:13 pm

    i love chips and salsa and have for as long as i can remember. however, now that we’ve got a 9 month old who i’m chasing around and my husband and i are crazy busy as the semester wraps up, we’ve started making a whole bunch of mini burritos with eggs, beans, cheese and salsa. We can grab one out the fridge for breakfast, a snack or anything else.

  • Danielle April 18, 2013, 2:14 pm

    Mmmm cheese! I love string cheese with a piece of fruit! Or if I’m craving something salty I’ll pop some popcorn on the stove top.

  • Meredith April 18, 2013, 2:15 pm

    Greek yogurt and strawberries!

  • Megan April 18, 2013, 2:20 pm

    Mmmm. Cheese. I love me some cheese too! I love to snack too. Hummus + pita chips is a great standby. My current fave is a chunk of feta + a marinated olive. oh man. You could prep those on skewers too, but I just keep the olive and feta containers next to each other in the fridge and use a fork to grab both — ultimate laziness! Lastly, I make my own lara bars. It is a little time consuming, but so tasty!

  • Elisa April 18, 2013, 2:21 pm

    I love cheese, crackers and grapes!

  • Lori April 18, 2013, 2:22 pm

  • Breanne April 18, 2013, 2:28 pm

    Warm Pita with hummus!

  • Angie April 18, 2013, 2:29 pm

    Depends on whether it’s a sweet or savory day – graham crackers with sunflower seed butter (thanks for the Maranatha tip, I’m so happy to be giving my little guy and me something with less sugar!) , popcorn, veggies and hummus.

    I’m still off dairy (1.5 years because of dairy intolerance in my still-nursing baby), but my other 3 kids and husband eat cheese snacks ALL THE TIME! Would love the prize!

  • Amy E April 18, 2013, 2:32 pm

    My new favorite healthy snack is apples with almond butter… or just a spoonful of almond butter with sunflower seeds sprinked on tip. Yum!

  • Alice April 18, 2013, 2:33 pm

    My current “go to” snack is a piece of whole wheat toast (preferably Martin’s Whole Wheat) with mashed up avocado on top. If time permits, I put a bit of cilantro on it, too – but if not, plain is fine! Quick, easy, and it keeps me satisfied for a while!

  • Sami April 18, 2013, 2:34 pm

    Being that I’ve gone gluten-free now, I have been LOVING popcorners… especially the white cheddar & the kettle flavors! 🙂

    Thanks for this giveaway, Caitlin!

  • Megan Dyan April 18, 2013, 2:34 pm

    I love having plain avocado, right out of the skin! Slice in half, and scoop out bites with a spoon. Doesn’t get any easier! And the two year old and 8 month old on either side of me love it too!

  • Megan April 18, 2013, 2:35 pm

    I love cheese and fruit!

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 2:37 pm

    I like bananas with almond butter, larabars and pears.

  • Nicole April 18, 2013, 2:37 pm

    Lately I’ve been loving yellow peppers and hummus, and my 17 month old loves them too!

  • Cristin April 18, 2013, 2:38 pm

    My go to snack is Greek yogurt, but today I had leftover chicken salad with apples.

  • Liz April 18, 2013, 2:41 pm

    I am obsessed with clementine oranges and so are my kids. I peel them in the morning and keep in a container for easy access.
    For a high protein snack I love edamame. Delicious. And target makes them already peeled in a steam bag. Bonus!

  • Nina April 18, 2013, 2:42 pm

    I’m trying to not snack right now, so all I try to grab now are the blueberries that are in season. I used to “snack” on whole meals, so it’s a learning curve for me.

  • Amy April 18, 2013, 2:42 pm

    Apple and raw almonds are my fave!

  • Kristen April 18, 2013, 2:43 pm

    Cheese is my favorite snack! Right now I’m really into Nut-Thins with Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese.

  • ashleigh April 18, 2013, 2:44 pm

    my fave snack is popcorn

  • Simply Life April 18, 2013, 2:44 pm

    I love cheese and….anything! Especially into cheese and apples right now

  • Lainie April 18, 2013, 2:46 pm

    My favorite snack is apple and peanut butter OR an apple with sharp cheddar. Yum!

  • Melanie April 18, 2013, 2:51 pm

    crackers and cottage cheese with salsa – not exactly portable, but SO good!

  • Mrs Type A April 18, 2013, 2:53 pm

    I love slices of cheese on apple slices! Such a crisp, delish way to combine flavors and stave off hunger!

  • Debra April 18, 2013, 2:53 pm

    I like to slice a piece of French bread, layer some slices apple and cheddar cheese on top. Then place it under the broiler until the cheese is nice and metly. Yum!

  • Katie D. April 18, 2013, 2:54 pm

    I love almond butter on cheese and apples. It’s the best combination ever!

  • Lauren Bailey April 18, 2013, 2:54 pm

    salty and sweet trail mix

  • Amy Martin April 18, 2013, 2:55 pm

    Right now my favorite snack is cheddar cheese, pretzel sticks and apples.

  • Katie M April 18, 2013, 3:00 pm

    I love bananas with peanut butter or hard boiled eggs. Both are great!

  • Brittney April 18, 2013, 3:00 pm

    My go-to snack is Almonds with dried blueberries. I buy the big bags at Trader Joes and spend 15 min. throwing everything together into sandwich bags, so I can grab and go!

  • Emily @ Relishments April 18, 2013, 3:02 pm

    I love cheese…but I’ll settle for chips and salsa if I have to 🙂

  • Katie April 18, 2013, 3:05 pm

    My favorite is mini peppers stuffed with goat cheese, herbs and pine nuts that are baked. But for fast snacks, especially away from home, I eat a lot (LOT) of string cheese. Can you tell I’m from Wisconsin?

  • Nicole April 18, 2013, 3:08 pm

    Banana dogs! It grew out of the need to use up hotdog buns that “someone” wasn’t eating. Toast a bun (or not), smear with (crunchy) almond butter, add a banana (no need to slice), and voila! Easy snack or breakfast. Sprinkle on coconut, chia seeds, or cacao nibs if you’re feeling fancy. Or even drizzle on some honey.

  • Andrea April 18, 2013, 3:09 pm

    Apples and peanut butter is always good! Or pita chips and hummus

  • keren April 18, 2013, 3:11 pm

    I love to eat fruit! I also like to eat rice cakes with peanut butter on it!

  • Colleen April 18, 2013, 3:12 pm

    PB and Banana is my favorite snack!

  • Mikella April 18, 2013, 3:12 pm

    Pretty much every single day when I go to work, I take plain yogurt (or cottage cheese) and a variety of mix-ins based on whatever I can dig up in my pantry/fridge. I got the idea because I used to get McD’s yogurt parfaits occasionally when I stopped for coffee, so I decided to save money by (f/m)aking my own.

    Some of the add-ins that are common: nuts, dry cereal, clementine wedges, apple, grapes, hard-boiled egg (only in cottage cheese, never tried in yogurt), frozen fruit….I think that is all I have tried so far. My favorite combo is a flavored dry cereal and apples in greek yogurt.

  • Ashlee@HisnHers April 18, 2013, 3:15 pm

    I like a HB egg and a piece of fruit! Mmm. Or pretty much anything smothered with PB!

  • Erin April 18, 2013, 3:19 pm

    I like eating dry cereal granola. And so does my 2 year old 🙂

  • Meg C. April 18, 2013, 3:20 pm

    Right now my favorite snack is that chocolate greek yogurt – so good!

  • Tricia April 18, 2013, 3:23 pm

    I love the Emerald Breakfast on the Go! Bags. They have a bunch of different varieties and all the ones I have had have some sort of dried fruit, a nut, granola, and something sweet… They are great for me because I can not leave my desk at work for very long so its something I can keep with me with out taking up space, I can grab it quickly on my way out the door, and I don’t have to worry about being near a fridge!

  • Ja @Ja on the RUN April 18, 2013, 3:24 pm

    I would definitely try everything you mentioned especially the Watermelon, fresh basil, and cheese kebobs. yummy!!!:)

  • Kelly April 18, 2013, 3:26 pm

    Fruit is always my go-to healthy snack – bananas pretty much year round, and berries in the summer!

  • Nikki April 18, 2013, 3:26 pm

    Greek yogurt with love crunch granola or dried apricots! Yum!! Love your kabob ideas 🙂

  • Amy April 18, 2013, 3:33 pm

    I love cheese!! And carrots dipped in hummus 🙂

  • Stefanie J April 18, 2013, 3:33 pm

    My favorite snack is hummus! With veggies or pretzel thins it is the best snack ever! Besides cheese of course 😉

  • AlisonJ April 18, 2013, 3:33 pm

    I love cottage cheese – quick, full of protein & keeps me full for ever! You can mix it up easily (and quickly) by adding salsa and black beans for a salty snack or fresh berries or jam for something sweet.

  • Bonnie April 18, 2013, 3:35 pm

    I love cheese and olives!

  • Ashley April 18, 2013, 3:36 pm

    PB and apples!

  • Sara April 18, 2013, 3:38 pm

    Your snack ideas are fantastic! I can’t wait to try a pear w/cheese… mmm! My go-to snack right now is probably a couple of clementines & a handful of nuts – this week’s variety is pistachios. 🙂

  • Kristy @ Kristy's Health Revolution April 18, 2013, 3:38 pm

    This is tough because snacks are my favorite meal 🙂

    I like: fruit, nuts, cheese (so much cheese), cut up raw veggies, bread, hummus, roasted chickpeas and cereal!

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 3:42 pm

    avocado and tomato in pita bread!

  • Sarah April 18, 2013, 3:46 pm

  • caitlin April 18, 2013, 3:46 pm

    Love greek yogurt! mix in chia seeds, froz fruit and/or some peanut butter! yummm

  • alli April 18, 2013, 3:48 pm

    i have a busy 2.5yr old boy, so i know what you mean by busy! lol. i work out of the home 2x/week so to make life easier i always prep both our meals for days at a time so we can grab it & go. here’s what i’ve been liking lately:

    *carrots & celery with sunflower seed butter (pre-shave, wash & cut and portion out into snack bags. freeze butter in 1T portions in a small bag)
    *banana & almond butter (freeze almond butter in 1T portions in small baggies)
    *grape tomatoes & egg whites (i usually do a ton of eggs once/twice a week)
    *homemade coconut oil popcorn
    *raisins & almonds (i portion out 2T raisins, 15 almonds in a leftover baby food container)
    *homemade larabar snacks

  • Shannon April 18, 2013, 3:50 pm

    Ooh looks yummy! Does Sargento’s have an organic line? If I eat animal products I prefer organic (and if pastured is available, even better!) I am just scared of the antibiotics, growth hormones, etc., but it’s so hard to be mindful about what you’re putting into your body without going crazy.

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 3:59 pm

    No lie, my go to snack is string cheese!!

  • Alissa April 18, 2013, 4:04 pm

    Yum those are great ideas! My favorite snack is simply an apple and a handful (or two…or three) of roasted almonds.

  • Jen April 18, 2013, 4:09 pm

    I always like to keep hard boiled eggs and string cheese on hand! They make great snacks.

  • Aimee April 18, 2013, 4:13 pm

    -a corn tortilla rolled up with melty pepperjack & avocado inside!
    -reinvented ants on a log with celery, hummus and quartered grape tomatoes (but the classic pb + raisins is delish, too!)
    -hardboiled eggs (so easy to boil up a half dozen and have snacks for a week!)

    Apologies for all the exclamation points; I’m just jazzed about snack time! 🙂

  • Courtney April 18, 2013, 4:13 pm

    Take some Greek yogurt — I like to use vanilla — and some dark chocolate chips and put that in between two graham crackers. Then stick it in the freezer. Yummo!

  • Laura April 18, 2013, 4:14 pm

    Handful of nuts and some fruit!

  • Lisa April 18, 2013, 4:14 pm

    I love banana and peanut butter and carrots and hummus!

  • Kristin April 18, 2013, 4:15 pm

    I love energy bites = a mix of PB, honey, ground flax, oatmeal and choc chips. Mix, roll into balls and set – and then grab and eat when need a snack. Love them!

  • Brooke April 18, 2013, 4:16 pm

    My healthy snacks are usually pretty boring! I love myself just a plain old apple, but sometimes I spice it up with some peanut butter. I am definitely trying your cheese in a pear snack, though! Yum!

  • Ali April 18, 2013, 4:16 pm

    My favorite healthy snack is probably a handful of cashews! I also like air-popped popcorn 🙂

  • bonnie April 18, 2013, 4:17 pm

    I’m surprised… I would have expected you to choose organic dairy rather than sarrgento.. especially after all your comments after Food, Inc and all. As a vegetarian and the wife of a holistic doctor, I would have thought you would purchase organic cheeses as the cows at conventional farms may not be slaughtered but they’re almost certainly suffering. I’m curious, do you purchase organic eggs?

    • Franny April 19, 2013, 8:51 am

      so weird, I responded to this yesterday but it must have gotten lost in the internet! What I was saying is that because her husband did not attend a medical school and also does not have a doctorate degree, he is not a doctor. I find it misleading to call him that. I’m started medical school this fall and believe me that I’ll be very protective of that doctor title in 4 years after all of the training and 300k of medical school debt!

  • rebecca April 18, 2013, 4:19 pm

    apples or celery and almond butter, peanut butter energy balls from happyhealthymama, hard boiled eggs, and homemade granola bars!

  • Mari April 18, 2013, 4:24 pm

    Great snack ideas! My favorite healthy snacks are plain Greek yogurt with berries and almonds or hummus with cucumber and carrots. Yum!

  • Marilyn April 18, 2013, 4:26 pm

    My favorite healthy snack is a plain rice cake with peanut butter smeared on top. You get the decadence of the peanut butter with the lightness of the rice cake. And it’s ready it’s seconds!

  • Erica April 18, 2013, 4:27 pm

    Homemade “Lara Bar balls” are my go-to snacks. Throw any mix of nuts and add ins (raisins, chocolate chips, etc) into the food processor with dates then form the dough into balls. Makes a great afternoon pick-me-up!

  • Vicki April 18, 2013, 4:27 pm

    Mmmm snacks. I love a good apple, banana, or rice cake with laughing cow cheese spread on it 🙂

  • Eileen April 18, 2013, 4:32 pm

    I make my own trailmix- nuts, craisins, chocolate chips.. so good.

  • Karen April 18, 2013, 4:40 pm

    This is a tough one — hard to narrow it down!

    Carrots & Roasted red pepper hummus
    Crackers with smoked gouda and grapes
    handful of almonds
    sweetened ricotta with berries (I take a 15oz container and add about 6 tsp powdered sugar, some vanilla and cinnamon and have it for the week)


  • Jen April 18, 2013, 4:46 pm

    We love yogurt- squeeze tubes for the little one, cups for me

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 4:49 pm

    I like to make homemade granola bars.

  • Kristin - My Life as a Teacup April 18, 2013, 4:54 pm

    The love I hold for cheese is infinite 🙂 I’m going to go with classic string cheese here – great for running out the door!

  • Wendy April 18, 2013, 4:56 pm

    I love sliced apple with a sprinkling of cinnamon. Heating it up in the microwave is also great on a cold day!

  • Cassidy April 18, 2013, 4:57 pm

    Any ‘hand-fruit’ — apples, plums, apricots…all you need is your hand and a mouth!

  • Emily April 18, 2013, 4:57 pm

    My FAVORITE healthy snack is an apple and PB burrito. Smear a big gob of peanut butter on a whole wheat tortilla, add apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon. Wrap it up and you’re good to go! I like to eat these on my way to the park to run. YUM.

  • Kaylin April 18, 2013, 5:03 pm

    Lately I have been loving Apple slices dipped in PB2 & Choc Protein Powder (Vega) mixed together. YUM!

  • Kara April 18, 2013, 5:03 pm

    Trader Joe’s serving size packs of nuts/trailmix – I really like the breakfast and trek chocolate ones. I keep them at work for a healthy, pre-portioned afternoon snack. The best part is that my coworkers and I call them nut sacks 😉

  • Cristina April 18, 2013, 5:04 pm

    Veggies and hummus is my favorite snack. I am obsessed with trader Joe’s roasted garlic hummus. Holy yumminess!

  • Stephanie April 18, 2013, 5:05 pm

    My fav quick snack is almonds. Open bag, grab small handful, and go. Easy peasy 😉

  • Anna h April 18, 2013, 5:08 pm

    This is a little strange but a piece of dense whole-grain bread with cottage cheese and jelly. It’s really good!

  • Liz A April 18, 2013, 5:11 pm

    Banana with a (peanut butter) mohawk! I’m pretty sure I got that from one of the bloggers… maybe Kath? Or could have been you…

  • Mia April 18, 2013, 5:13 pm

    I make my own popcorn/trailmix. Mix popcorn with nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruit, or any flavor combo and put into individual size baggies.

  • Claire Zulkey April 18, 2013, 5:35 pm

    girl you know I need this post. My favorite healthy snack is carrots and peanut butter. I thought it sounded crazy when I first heard of it but once I tried it I was like yes.

  • Amber April 18, 2013, 5:35 pm

    I love to prep egg salad, and then dip in with some red bell pepper chunks 🙂

  • Katherine April 18, 2013, 5:41 pm

    The absolute best is greek yogurt with berries. I’m a student so I need some quick but portable snacks to pack for the library… I throw some yogurt into tupperware, top with frozen berries, and it’s all defrosted and delicious by the time I’m ready for a study break.

  • Trina April 18, 2013, 5:43 pm

    My favorite is popcorn that I make on the stove top with a little bit of olive oil and sea salt.

    Favorite on the go power snack is the good ol apple slices with almond butter. Which seems to be a popular one around here. I also do enjoy a good protein ball. Just made a batch of 30 last night and easy to grab and go when need be.

  • Amanda April 18, 2013, 6:21 pm

    Recently I’ve fallen in love with frozen grapes on a kabob. Makes me feel like I get more grape for my buck and it takes longer to eat/more refreshing when they’re frozen 🙂

  • Karlee April 18, 2013, 6:21 pm

    romaine lettice wrapped around a slice of cheese, a pickle spear and mustard

  • Jess April 18, 2013, 6:23 pm

One cup frozen berries, 1/2 frozen banana (if not frozen, add a few ice cubes), 1/2 cup cold coconut coffee that I store in my fridge, 1/2 cup almond milk, and a handful of spinach. It’s a great treat to look forward to on the drive home!

  • Cellabella April 18, 2013, 9:17 pm

    Fresh snap peas and pub cheese dip!! Maybe not so easy when chasing a baby, but still yummy 🙂

  • Mel April 18, 2013, 9:17 pm

    A sandwich is my go-to quick snack: a slice of bread or a small wrap, a piece of cheese with some veggies (or a few apple slices), maybe a dollop of hummus. Combine and then nuke until cheese is melty. Yum!

  • Rachel S April 18, 2013, 9:47 pm

    I am obsessed with cheese as a snack! One of my favorites is a slice of whole wheat toast with margarine or butter, then I’ll take a mozzarella stick and slice it in small pieces on top of the toast. So yummy once the cheese melts on top!

  • Erica April 18, 2013, 10:14 pm

    Apple Roll-ups – melt cheese on a tortilla in the mic, put some sliced apples on top and roll er’ up. I also love banana with Biscoff (or TJ’s cookie butter) but that can also be considered dessert…..

  • Jane @ Not Plain So Jane April 18, 2013, 11:43 pm

    I LOVE Sargento cheese for snacks and it never goes on sale! Honestly a go-to snack for me is a latte 🙂 Skim milk with espresso. Skim milk gives you protein and it really sticks with you! Plus, sometimes a nice warm latte just puts a smile on my face in the mid-morning or afternoon 🙂

  • Alicia April 18, 2013, 11:44 pm

    I always enjoy a banana with nut butter, yum! 🙂 kinda hard to take around though, so if I’m driving and snacking (which i’m often doing) i like crackers and cheese. Bite cheese pop in a cracker lol!

  • Steph April 18, 2013, 11:52 pm

    I’ve got two boys under the age of 3, so I know what you mean!! For me, I like having homemade granola bars on hand. Cheese and apples are a favorite, or even a simple bowl of a healthy cereal with milk. Whatever is easy and full of energy! I also love carrots and guacamole.

  • Krishna April 19, 2013, 12:13 am

    I’m a big fan of the skewer snacks as well – watermelon + feta cube + black olive + mint leaf + repeat.

  • heather April 19, 2013, 1:06 am

    Is any of the cheese organic? I thought you were opposed to conventional (and over processed in my mind, check out Sargento’s FAQ page) dairy? If I had to choose my favorite cheese snack it would be organic, grass fed sharp cheddar cheese on a pumpkin seed, gluten-free cracker…

  • Casey April 19, 2013, 1:11 am

    Greek yogurt w an apple or pear. Or PB and toast! Or 1/2 Avacado

  • the_1006 April 19, 2013, 3:04 am


    Long time listener first time caller… 🙂

    Love your blog. Cheese and milk were never the human diet. Casein is cancer causing.

    With that negativity here is some positivity that I think you will enjoy. Please recommend to your true fans if you think any of the links have merit. I’ll stay tuned regardless.

    Three links that I think you will enjoy.

    My favorite snack is ALWAYS changing! Usually I stick to peanut butter toast, cottage cheese, luna bars, trail mix, and other types of nuts. But recently I’ve been sort of obsessed with experimenting with greek yogurt. I took a chobani yogurt, mixed in pumpkin pie spice (LOTS of it) and crumbled graham crackers over the top. It was like pumpkin cheesecake!

  • Elizabeth April 19, 2013, 8:37 am

    Toasted Ezekiel bread topped with smashed avocado, sprouts, lemon juice, and sea salt. Trust me.

    Omg. I would love to win all this beautiful cheese!

    I am the same- they have to be easy enough for me to grab on my way to work other wise i dont do it. And then end up raiding the work snackbox- not so healthy.
    1. Carrots and peanut butter
    2.Apple and peanut bar OR laughing cow cheese
    3. Celery and laughing cow
    4. Those bags of small bell peppers- i just grab a few peppers cut them up and scoop up some salsa
    5.Cheese of any sort- we love string cheese in our house because its so easy but any cheese will do.

I also make snack packs of veggies with cheese, dried fruit & nuts portioned out and keep them in the frige or cupboard so they are ready to go!!

  • Celestia April 19, 2013, 5:19 pm

    My favorite snacks include the following: Apple slices with natural peanut butter–or–a favorite standby– banana slices and almonds–yes, just place both in a plastic bag and the banana nut taste is awesome:) I eat them between classes.

  • Jennifer M April 19, 2013, 5:24 pm

    I love peanut butter on apples (honey crisp are the best, but very seasonal so any apple would do).

  • Kasondra April 19, 2013, 5:35 pm

    My favorte snack is greek yogurt with shelled frozen edemame in it. Sounds weird, tasts fantastic!

  • Makenna April 19, 2013, 5:38 pm

    An apple with peanut butter is my standby!

  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness April 19, 2013, 5:46 pm

  • Holly B April 19, 2013, 5:47 pm

    Mustard and pieces of cheese rolled up into high-fiber whole-wheat tortillas.

  • Irene April 19, 2013, 6:05 pm

  • Kristin April 19, 2013, 6:17 pm

    A spoonful of tj’s sunflower butter and small glass of almond milk… Just perfect 🙂

  • Emily J April 19, 2013, 6:18 pm

  • Meghan @ It Works! Wrap Yourself April 19, 2013, 8:08 pm

    I love roasted chickpeas as well (dill or salt/vinegar are my favorite)! My little guy is only about 4 months old but I’m sure when he starts to crawl and then walk, I’ll be appreciating these healthy snack ideas!

    Henry is SO cute by the way, he totally looks like both of his parents.

  • Jill April 19, 2013, 8:32 pm

    Almonds + String Cheese/Hard Boiled Egg
    Lots of protein for stay power! I usually boil a dozen eggs at the beginning of the week and then have them in the fridge for a quick snack.

  • Emily April 19, 2013, 8:42 pm

    My favorite healthy, go-to snack is an apple and almond butter. BUT, to make it feel more special I cut it into small slices, just like when I was a kid. It also feels like a more substantial snack that way!

  • Katie G April 19, 2013, 8:56 pm

    Since your a big fan of kebabs…what about cheese, basil and strawberries?

  • tiffany April 19, 2013, 9:40 pm

    i really like cottage cheese and tomatoes on toast…sprinkled with some black pepper and maybe some shredded basil!

  • C April 19, 2013, 9:54 pm

    I like to make my own trail mix. So much cheaper than the pre-made kind and great on the go in baggies!

  • Megan April 19, 2013, 10:52 pm

    I like just plain string cheese! Or cheese and apples- yum!

  • Tori L April 19, 2013, 11:10 pm

    Right now I’m totally obsessed with rice cakes smeared with the laughing cow, so delicious!

  • Sarah April 19, 2013, 11:41 pm

    My favorite is PB2 + banana + mini chocolate chips. I’m also a trail mix addict!

  • Megan April 20, 2013, 12:37 am

    My favorite snack is sweet potato tortilla chips with guacamole, salsa or hummus dip!

  • Michelle April 20, 2013, 12:49 am

    Apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon & honey. A fun snack that I’m able to eat when I’m running after my 10 month old;)

  • Cassie April 20, 2013, 1:56 am

    I came up with this after reading Anderson Cooper’s book, Dispatches from the Edge. He mentions that he used to keep canned tuna on hand, because it lasts a long time and is very nutritious. I started keeping a pouch in my bag or at work. Now, I don’t have to worry about unstable governments collapsing around me, but being prepared never hurt anyone! I find this is an easy snack to whip up and scarf down when I’m rushing from work to class.

    Take one packet of tuna (in the pouch, not a can). Add a bit of olive oil. Sprinkle in your favorite seasoning. I use a rosemary blend, because I looooove rosemary. Mix with a fork, and eat! You can spread it on toast or something, but I generally will have it by itself, if I don’t have time to actually eat a “meal-meal” before class or while working on a big project.

    Oh, and I mix it in the pouch, too. You can use a bowl, but the pouch is just easier, I think. It can be added to a salad to create a filling meal, too.

  • Ilene April 20, 2013, 2:23 am

  • Jen April 20, 2013, 6:09 am

    I lived on apples & peanut butter when I was pregnant. Yumm

  • Melanie Deardorff April 20, 2013, 7:59 am

    My fave snack, and I have this about four times a week, is Sargento light string cheese + Newman’s Own protein pretzels. Love the protein + carb combination, and sometimes I don’t even have to refrigerate the cheese. I just stick everything in my purse when I am out and running around and don’t want to get pulled into eating an unhealthy snack. Convenient and tasty!

  • Monica April 20, 2013, 8:14 am

    I love hummus and baby carrots!

  • Kat April 20, 2013, 10:57 am

    My favorite is sprinkling string cheese over Trader Joe’s tomato and red pepper soup. Delicious and soooo easy!

  • Mandy April 20, 2013, 11:03 am

    I love the picture of Henry reaching for the kebab with that frustrated look on his face. Mama! Why won’t you give me the sharp stick?!?!

    My favorite quick snack is apple slices with peanut butter. So simple, so good.

  • Trisha April 20, 2013, 11:38 am

    Big ol’ apple and string cheese for me as well!

  • Caroline Calcote April 20, 2013, 2:27 pm

    I guess hummus would be my favorite healthy snack, but the chips I usually eat with it are not so healthy 🙂

  • Kassie April 20, 2013, 2:56 pm

    I make my own variations if trail mixes on the weekends to snack through the week.

  • Dee April 20, 2013, 3:26 pm

    edamame (soy) beans, a sprinkle of parmesan on top, a dash of salt and bake in the oven! yummy!

  • julie (etsy stalkers) April 20, 2013, 3:28 pm

    I love, love, love pears and brie.

  • Jen April 20, 2013, 3:32 pm

    My usual snacks are almonds or a string cheese and fruit – usually apple or clementine.

  • Dana April 20, 2013, 3:35 pm

    My favorite healthy snack is edamame. I buy the frozen bag in Trader Joe’s and then just portion it out. Yummy and fun to eat.

  • laura April 20, 2013, 3:48 pm

    Almond Butter Balls! (oats, honey, almond butter, cinnamon) – easily eaten in car, on the go – running, hiking! : ) l o v e cheeese!

  • Mary April 20, 2013, 4:30 pm

    We looovvveee string cheese and cuties

  • Rachel April 20, 2013, 4:30 pm

    One of my favorite snacks is a cheese omelet with some form of fruit! Beat one egg, pour in a skillet, place slice of cheese on top and let it get all delicious and melty! Usually I wrap mine up like a burrito and pair it with some berries! It keeps me full for hours and is almost more of a “mini meal” than a snack! 🙂

  • Carolyn C. April 20, 2013, 6:38 pm

    Love, love, love natural peanut butter and apple.

  • Angela April 20, 2013, 6:58 pm

    I’ve got three little ones and I gotta say my favorite snack is a quick bowl of cereal. However, if I’m on the go chasing, or driving, or headed to the playground I love to slice up fruit (specifically apples) and hunks of cheddar and throw them into tupperware together for easy snacking that I can quickly throw the lid and finish later, cause really, who gets to eat and ENTIRE apple without bring interrupted? :)))

  • Jordan April 20, 2013, 7:09 pm

    My favorite easy snack is apples and peanut butter (which I take to work every day to eat in the afternoon!) I love cheese sticks, too!

  • Kelly April 20, 2013, 9:31 pm

    If I can stay away from the ice cream, I like combos of sweet and salty….trail mix, etc.

  • Grace April 21, 2013, 7:13 am

    I’m a snacker, always have been but especially now with two little ones. There’s always healthy stuff ready for me to grab & go. My favorite snack is a toss up between yogurt w/mixed nuts or cereal. Great giveaway – I loooove cheese!

  • jen April 21, 2013, 9:20 am

    I love homemade trail mix!!

    My current favs are
    celery and sunflower seed butter
    cereal and milk

    I have a 4 month old and even though we arent mobile yet, its still nice to have quick snacks to eat when he needs extra snuggles (we are teething right now).

  • kate s April 21, 2013, 10:02 am

    Banana and peanut butter or cottage cheese with cucumbers and tomatoes. Yum!

  • Emily April 21, 2013, 11:43 am

    I like toast with green apple slices and cheese melted on top..takes one minute in the toaster oven and is so so good 🙂

  • briana April 21, 2013, 12:04 pm

    keep it simple: cheese and crackers!

  • Jeri April 21, 2013, 12:48 pm

    I love snacks…they keep food interesting! Some of my favorites are string cheese + fruit, anything with greek yogurt or cottage cheese, fruit/veg with peanut butter, nuts… I could go on and on!

    Tortillas and any dip available!

  • Stephanie April 21, 2013, 4:56 pm

    I love to grab a big ole grapefruit for a snack. =)

  • Alisa April 21, 2013, 5:47 pm

    apples and peanut butter (a portable version would be an apple with a handful of nuts).

  • Colleen April 21, 2013, 6:00 pm

    Crackers and cheese!

  • Sarah L April 21, 2013, 7:16 pm

    I love popcorn.

  • Christine April 21, 2013, 8:38 pm

    I love apples with pb!

  • LizP April 21, 2013, 9:04 pm

    A delicious snack for me is mozzarella cheese and frozen grapes…salty and sweet, the perfect snack combo!

  • Katie April 21, 2013, 9:22 pm

    I love to snack on frozen grapes – always have them in my freezer! Another favorite is simply some greek yogurt with cereal mixed in. Great giveaway:)

  • Richard P April 21, 2013, 9:30 pm

    Not sure about the watermelon and fetta cheese (I’ll have to try that one), but these are some great ideas for healthy snacks that i’m going to have to try out for myself. Keep posting these wonderful ideas.

  • Michele April 21, 2013, 9:38 pm

    Grapes! I probably eat them every single day. I always have a big bowl in my fridge and they are easy to throw in a ziploc bag and take with me on the go too. I also always keep some kind of granola/protein bar in my purse.

  • Shoshana April 21, 2013, 9:41 pm

    Lately, I’ve been baking a batch of healthy muffins at the start of the week…I freeze them, making it easy to grab and go!

  • Blessie Nelson April 21, 2013, 11:04 pm

    My easy peezy snack on the go to make for my kids are a homemade batch of hummus and cut veggies and boiled eggs and olives with it. The color and the smooth taste with the crunch of the veggies make them dive into it!

  • HilJo April 21, 2013, 11:06 pm

    Either frozen peas or avocado are my two faves 🙂 Or cereal!

  • Krysta April 22, 2013, 2:16 am

    Definitely banana and almond butter!

  • Laura April 22, 2013, 2:36 am

    I LOVE Sargento Cheese (especially the Vermont Cheddar which we can no longer get locally), so I really hope I win :).

    An old standby is crackers and Laughing Cow Cheese (another love), or crackers and nut butter (sunflower is my current fave). I recently tried making “paleo popcorn” (cauliflower tossed with soaked cashiews/water blended together with sea salt and then dehydrated), but didn’t cook the cauliflower in my oven long enough (it still tasted good though!). Soaked cashews themselves are an amazing snack, lightly salted. I love Kale chips but I want to try (again!) to make my own, they’re so expensive. Wraps make good snacks, too.

  • Laura April 22, 2013, 2:38 am

    Also, and this is going to sound bizarre, but I took some lentils I’d made (confetti cooked in a slow cooker with No-Chicken broth–I think by Imagine foods) and added pickles and mustard. It ended up tasting like chili-dog chili, and was such a weirdly delicious, satisfying snack. I need to go to bed before I go make some 🙂

  • Jenn April 22, 2013, 3:42 am

    This comment will probably get lost among the comments of people entering the contest. But, just wanted to say that I am disappointed in your new blogging schedule and content. The posts read like things you wrote weeks in advance and just happended to post one day –i.e., have no relevance to whats current or happening at the moment. I respect your decision to blog less but based on the content of what you have been posting since that decision, I don’t think I will be reading much longer.

  • Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie April 22, 2013, 6:05 am

    Oh man my favorite snack is steamed brussels sprouts! Weird but true!

  • Charity Dawn April 22, 2013, 7:33 am

    My favorite is Cheese and grapes. It’s also great for sharing with the little man! I call it my Pre-wine and cheese snack 😉

  • hilary April 22, 2013, 7:36 am

    I LOVE olives with cheese hummus and red peppers. DELICIOUS!

  • Katy April 22, 2013, 9:33 am

    Big fan of the hard boiled egg with a banana 🙂
