Fruit and Vegetable Squeeze Pouch (1) plus String Cheese (1 low-fat stick): If you’re looking for a sweet treat, but want to avoid squished banana in the bottom of your bag, grab a squeeze sleeve. Fruit and vegetable pouches, such as Happy Squeeze from Happy Family, are a great way to get antioxidants and energy on the go for fewer than 100 calories. Top off this snack with a stick of string cheese for satiating protein that will extend the squeeze pouch’s energy surge.
Sealpack Salmon (5 ounces) on Crispbread (2): For only two ingredients, this snack provides a hunger-zapping balance of protein, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber-rich carbohydrates. Plus, the crunchy texture of the crispbread and the richness of the salmon make it ultra-satisfying.
Carrot (1), Cheese Cheese (1 low-fat stick), and Turkey (2 low-sodium slices): Wrap two slices of deli turkey around string cheese, and one regular–sized carrot (or around several baby carrots), making a pinwheel. Crunchy, sweet, and salty, this snack is sure to satisfy taste buds. Your belly will be happy, too: The protein in the cheese and turkey, and the fiber in the carrot, help to keep blood sugar levels steady, which wards off cravings.
