SNACK TIME | No one likes a hangry person

healthy snacks labara

HANGRY (han-gree) adj. = a state of anger caused by lack of food

Snacking is one of my worst habits. It could be 5am or right after Thanksgiving dinner and I will be on the lookout for a tasty snack.

Believe me, if I could snack on potato chips and chocolate all day long I would be a happy camper! But sadly, that’s just not the best idea for your heart or waist line.

As my boyfriend always says, “No one likes a hangry manderz!” (“manderz” is his loving nickname for me)

So to combat my hangry side from coming out, I always have healthy snacks on hand!

Since I would consider myself a snacking expert, I’ve created a list of my top 6 snacks recommendations! Fruity, salty, crunchy, chewy, chocolaty…. these snacks cover it all.

healthy prepackaged snacks

  1. Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi and soy sauce almonds (the dijon mustard ones are delicious too)
  2. Belvita blueberry biscuits (you will think you are eating a cookie, seriously)
  3. Annie’s organic bunny fruit snacks (these aren’t just for kids)
  4. Skinnygirl chocolate chip cookie dough protein bar (you will be shocked by how tasty this is!)
  5. Perfect red apple (An apple a day keeps the doctor away)
  6. LARABAR cherry pie bar (I’ve raved about these bars before, and they are still a go-to for me!)

All of these things can easily be thrown in a purse and devoured at the first sign of hangry-ness!

What are you go-to snacks?

    Good post. Letting yourself get too hungry just leads to bad food choices. Protein is key for me, so I’ll add a light string cheese or Babybel lite to my green apple as a go-to snack. Or one of those P3 packs (a little meat, cheese and an few nuts) available even at convenience stores.

      Great point! I’ve never tried a P3 pack before, but it sounds like a great little snack time treat! I will have to check them out :)

    All I have tried from your list is the apple lol They all sound pretty yummy! One of my fave snacks is hummus! I love it with pita chips/bread, pretzels, celery, and carrots:p

      YUM! Hummus is delicious :) Not the best snack to throw in your purse for a snack, but a great treat to have in your fridge at home or the office. I love mine with pretzels too!

        They have mini packs of hummus that come with pretzels that have worked great as a packed snack for me:) But not the best thing to eat while you’re running around or driving lol

        Hahaha that is true. My driving skills are already questionable. I need a snack requiring only one hand :)

      Great minds think alike :) What do you think of it so far?

        I’m a little less than halfway through, but I’m enjoying it! At first I thought the constant switching between years/characters would be confusing, but it’s kept my interest! What do you think??

        I agree! It took me a while to understand the constant flip flopping, but I finally got a hang of it. Reading about the Italian coastline makes me want to travel there so badly!

      Yum! That’s such a great idea! I’m obsessed with the yellow peppers :) I will have to pack those as a snack next week for work.
