8 Healthy, Pre-Packaged Snacks Perfect for Losing Weight or Building Muscle

Share On

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.

1. Fage Total 0%

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.

2. StarKist Ready-Made Albacore Tuna Salad Packet

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:


Spicy Tuna:

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.

3. Stretch Island Fruit Co. Fruit Strips

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.

4. Sweet Potato Pop Chips

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.

5. Bare Fruit Cinnamon Apple Chips

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.

6. Barney Butter Squeeze Packs

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.

7. Eden Foods Brown Rice Crackers

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.

8. Organic Valley Stringles

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.

"Dieting" doesn't have to suck. You CAN eat foods you like and have the body you want!

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.


Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profits so our shipping is 100% free!

Okay, we do dig on profits, but we also do offer 100% free shipping to everywhere in the world because it makes people you like happy, and that makes us happy.

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
