I’d recommend not packing anything with lots of carbs. Even if I have granola, I won’t eat it every time. It’s best to stick to more meats and vegetables to keep you full.
However, when I can't get to my own food I carry what one of my friends called "emergency food" because I always seemed to have something in a pocket.
Millville (Aldi) granola bars stay in my desk and briefcase. I keep nuts of some kind around at ALL times. Always peanuts. And almonds or pistachios, whichever is on sale. However, my go to is honey sticks. They are plastic, one serving tubes that I get at the State Farmers' Market. They are 20 or 25 cents a piece. Good for the car, office or briefcase. And honey never goes bad.
Organic peanut butter and grape jelly, or any jelly, on a small pia bread, is great. Or a trail mix with oats, walnuts, cashews, dried tart cherry or cranberry, and a thin coating of dark cocoa. Sliced avocado on toast, with a pinch of rosemary, basil, pepper and a dash of olive oil. A coupled of boiled eggs with a carrot and celery stick. I also love a bowl of Asian noodle soup, like Vietnamese PHO, a spicy broth with meatballs, shredded meat, or chicken, with lemongrass, mushrooms and thin rice noodles. I love lo mein noodles with chicken and mushrooms, love Pad Thai noodles, love Indonesian Spicy tomato noodles. But these are things that you buy or have them prepared before hand.
Another snack I like , as an apple with nut butter, with out without raisins. You can get Justin’s Nut Butter in small packages to go. So easy.
And do remember your water.
Whenever you lack time to prepare just cut some fruits add soy milk and 1-2 scoops of whey isolate in blender and drink it. This will keep you full for next3-4 hours.
Havermout met Melk. En daarna een boterham met pindakaas.

If you need something filling and healthy – fruit like apple of orange it’s a great option. If you need something what will last long and stay tasty for long time crispy snacks like Dr. Körner or Finn Crips is nice choice. Put on it slice of cheese or whatever you want and you will not feel hungry for few hours. Crips is dry, so remember to stay hydrated. You can buy few small juice-pack and drink it when you feel hungry. But remember – it still have lot of calories, so try to find sugar-less juice. And fresh fruits it’s always best choice.
Cooked egg, Protein yogurt, Walnuts or cashews, Babybell cheese.
It's my choices 😉
Also, when you are on the go, just try not to get yourself bored. If you get bored you may start feeling hungry early.
Fruits too. Stone fruits work especially well for me but you can pick your own.
For something more substantial, look for a low-sugar protein bar. I like the “think thin” variety. It’s of course a processed food, but – paired with an apple – it’s better than a fast food burger and fries as an “emergency” meal.
Another suggestion is rice or corn “cakes.” They can be dry, but will really fill you up.
So before you go to bed have a mason jar ready add some oatmeal , water or almond milk or regular milk add chia seeds , flaxseed, yogurt, and fruit berries mix it up if you like , and it’s ready to go when you wake up and it’s on the go . If you want you can add granola before you eat it , and it fills you up and it’s pretty healthy. 🙂
Carrots and cucumbers are also good and they take long to digest so you won’t get hungry fast
A cup of yogurt is fulfilling and refreshing also, you can also toss some frozen berries and drizzle with a little honey, yummm 😋 (try white honey ,, its yummy and doesn’t have the strong flavor of honey so it works as a good replacement for sugar)
Boiled eggs (they can be prepared in advance and they keep well in the fridge)
Dried fruits are also good options but should be consumed in moderation as you want to go easy on the sugars
