Can anyone give me some snack ideas I can grab and throw in my bag, and be off on my way? Something that doesn't require lots of preperation would be great.<br><br><br><br>
KEEP IN MIND: I'm a VERY picky eater...LOL! I like some veggies, I like granola and grains and such. But I bet half of the suggestions you leave I will reject. Sorry...lol.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks in advance!

Luna bars are a great snack, they're nutritious, and they come in lots of yummy flavors! My favorites are the cherry-covered chocolate, and the chocolate peppermint stick! It's like eating a candy bar, but it's good for you! I believe there's a thread about them here somewhere.

I'll second that. Luna Bars are my stable on-the-go item. Baby carrots are not a bad option, either, as are any other fruit that doesn't bruise too easily.

Nuts are good. Cereal is good, too (you can mix the two and make a trail mix).<br><br>
You can pack plain rice cakes and eat them with some baby carrots and cherry tomatoes.<br><br><br><br>
Bananas are good, I like to eat them with graham crackers.

Thank you very much for the replies! I'll have to check out the Luna Bars! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Nature's Choice (made by Barbara's Bakery) makes a few different flavors of fruit & cereal bars which are pretty good. And if you're in the mood for junk, there's always Pop Tarts <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">.

I'd leave out the Pop Tarts. You want junk food? Go for vegan cookies. Junky, but still far better for you than Pop Tarts.

I know for sure that the plain(no icing) strawberry pop tarts are vegan.<br><br><br><br>
I agree with others, Luna bars!

There's gelatin in the filling of poptarts and eggs in the cover as far as I remember from reading the ingredients lists (uhhh, there's far too many ingredients lists in my head)

I'm a big fan of those little boxes of raisins -- you can carry 'em with you with no hassle. Same goes for bananas, and, of course, Luna bars. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I've also recently become a big fan of puffed-rice snack bars. They come in all sorts of cool flavors like peanut butter or berry. I think they're made by Envirokids (but big kids like me eat 'em too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> ).

Oh, and you could also probably get some good ideas from the "What did you eat today?" thread in the Healthy Living section.

The Pop Tarts with icing aren't vegan. I've only had the strawberry ones without icing (which, as piglet said, are vegan), so I'm not too sure if the other flavors of the plain ones are vegan. But certainly Luna Bars are much better for you. It all depends what you're in the mood for...sometimes I just have to have a Pop Tart <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">. I don't eat them that much, so I don't worry about it. Small bags of pretzels might be an idea also.

I pack a big vegan lunch for my hubby everyday for work-<br><br><br><br>
Make a batch of muffins, freeze them in a big storage bag, pull on out when you're in a hurry- they thaw quickly<br><br><br><br>
mini pretzels, Luna Bars, cookies, Veggie Booty, little soymilk drink boxes, pistachios(or other nuts/seeds), whatever is leftover from dinner the night before

Type B gelatin derived from beef sources is found in the frosting of all varieties of Kellogg's(R) Frosted Pop-Tarts(R). Plain (unfrosted) Kellogg's(R) Pop-Tarts(R) do not contain gelatin. None of the equipment that comes in contact with the gelatin on Kellogg's(R) Frosted Pop-Tarts(R) is used in the production of the other pastries. The pregelatinized wheat starch, which some of our toaster pastries contain, is derived from wheat and does not contain any gelatin. No other products of animal origin are used in Kellogg's(R) Pop-Tarts(R) or Kellogg's(R) Frosted Pop-Tarts(R). No animal shortening is used, only vegetable shortening.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.muslimaccess.com/articles/misc/kelloggs2.asp" target="_blank">http://www.muslimaccess.com/articles/misc/kelloggs2.asp</a>
