For all of you who are in similar situations, here is a list of my top 20 healthy snacks (many of which are portable and packaged, but still all-natural and preservative free). Mar 7, 2012 by Tatianna Hi Everyone,I’ve been asked more questions about writing a healthy food guide and menu sample for at least a week. When I was in college, I never cooked and it was really hard for me to figure out which snacks were the healthiest to eat.
Applesauce – another great way to get your daily serving of fruit in a non-perishable way.
Rice Cakes with Almond Butter – try brown rice cakes, they have 2g fiber and 60 calories per cake, with 1 Tbsp almond butter that’s a 160 calorie snack! 0% Greek Yogurt (like from Chobani) topped with honey and nuts or cereal – one container of greek yogurt is 80-90 calories and has 14g protein.
Sprouted Wheat bread with 1 Tbsp almond butter and sliced bananas (optional) – About a 250 calorie snack depending on whether you add banana or not. Shelf Stable Soups – a great way to get your serving of vegetables, and they last FOREVER unopened.


Ginger Chews – A great substitute for sugary candy, 2 pieces will run you only 40 calories and have only 5g sugar each. And yes, it’s nice that you still have a few years before you have to think about your daughter going to college! I did not go to college but I have heard what my husband ate in college because he could not afford much, wish he went with your options instead! I’m going to back to college myself and boy oh boy do I expect to be eating horrible, but these are great ideas to stay healthy. Add 1 Tbsp honey and a handful of cereal or nuts, and you’re looking at a 200-250 calorie nutrition packed snack. Lara bars make a great snack or dessert substitute, while CORE Foods act more like a meal replacement (they keep you full for 4 hours, have 350-390 calories, 6-8g fiber and up to 18g protein). So as for quick and easy meals to take on the go, I’d recommend sandwiches, salads and wraps that you make at home and then take with you.
