8 Healthy, Pre-Packaged Snacks Perfect for Losing Weight or Building Muscle
We all wish we could always have fresh, delicious, low-calorie foods within arm’s reach…but that’s just not the case. Packing fresh foods and transporting them around every day is a hassle, and especially so among those of us that travel quite a bit.
Therefore, I decided to put together a list of my 10 favorite pre-packaged snack foods…and all are under 150 calories, so you can decide how much to eat based on your weight goals.
100 calories, 18 g protein, 7 g carbs, 0 g fat
I’m pretty much obsessed with this stuff. Rich, creamy, delicious, and nearly 20 grams of protein and 0 grams of fat per serving. How do they do it? Magic, I tell you. Mix in some honey or agave and it tastes like dessert.
90 calories, 10 g protein, 5 g carbs, 3.5 g fat
Tuna packets rock for quick, easy protein. You can mix it with all kinds of stuff to give taste. Here’s a simple recipe from The Shredded Chef that I particularly like:
Mix 6 ounces tuna with 1 tablespoon diced pickled jalapenos, 1 teaspoon hot sauce, 4 tablespoons diced tomatoes, 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
45 calories, 0 g protein, 11 g carbs, 0 g fat
Carrying around fresh fruit isn’t always feasible, but all-natural fruit leathers are a great alternative. A couple of these is the same amount of carbs as a piece of fruit, and satisfies your sweet tooth.
120 calories, 1 g protein, 20 g carbs, 4 g fat (per serving)
Sweet potatoes are a tasty, healthy option for carbs, and I like this brand a lot. They’re all natural–no fake colors or flavors, no preservatives, no GMO ingredients, and no trans fats.
29 calories, 0 g protein, 8 g carbs, 0 g fat (per serving)
How is this for simple ingredients: organic apples, and organic cinnamon. And it’s delicious. Great on-the-go carb option.
90 calories, 3 g protein, 4 g carbs, 7.5 g fat (for .6 oz packet)
If you haven’t experienced the heavenly taste of good almond butter…watch out–it’s addictive. Almond butter is one of my favorite snacks, period. It’s high in protein and fats and low in carbs, and it’s downright delicious. Highly recommended.
120 calories, 3 g protein, 22 g carbs, 2 g fat
Brown rice crackers are the next best thing to eating the grain itself, and I like this brand. They don’t use any artificial ingredients or trans fats, and they’re quite tasty.
80 calories, 7 g protein, 0 g carbs, 6 g fat
I don’t eat much dairy, but these are a healthy, easy source of protein if you’re on the run.
