Anyway, this post will give you easy and portable snack ideas and tips for outdoor activities to keep hunger at bay.
Nourishing snacks are important to help you avoid becoming HANGRY in between meals.
HANGRY: Hungry + Angry = An unpleasant feeling for yourself and others around you caused by extreme hunger, which leads to irritability and crankiness.
SNACK #1: Hard Boiled Eggs
Eggs are also sources of vitamin D, vitamin B12, phosphorus and riboflavin and leucine (important for protein synthesis and eye health).

SNACK #2: Nut Butter on a Whole-Grain Tortilla
SNACK #3: Fruit and Nuts
SNACK #4: Nutribar Health Bars
I like these bars because you don’t get a laundry list of ingredients that comes with many bars I see on the market. There are only 6 ingredients: dates, raisins, walnuts, sunflower seeds and peanuts. I also recommend them because the combination of the fruit and nuts makes them quite filling – great for a healthy snack! You can find them at Loblaws, with the price range around $2.
Note: The TV segment was partially sponsored by Nutribar, however I was not compensated to write this blog post. All opinions are my own and are genuine.
SNACK #5: Healthy Home-made Granola
Or portion your granola into small plastic bags or reusable containers. You have healthy snacks ready to go!
