Nutritious Snacks That Don’t Take Much Time to Prepare

Nutritious snacks that don't take much time to prepare

Wouldn’t it be great if we had enough time and energy to buy or make healthy and nutritious snacks that would get us through long days? According to Kimberly Maloomian it is possible to prepare good snacks that don’t take up too much of our limited time and energy.

Make Your Own Trail Mix

“Nuts are great! Get some raw nuts and some dried fruit to make your own trail mix. The unfortunate thing about doing it yourself is that it can be expensive initially to get all the ingredients, but the benefit is that you can make a large batch of it that will end up being cheaper in the long run for you than buying multiple bags of trail mix. Also, if you buy all the raw materials and mix them yourself, you get exactly what you want!


  • cashews, dried açai berries, dried apricots, dried chickpeas, dark chocolate chips
  • pecans, dried mango, dried pineapple, pumpkin seeds
  • almonds, walnuts, freeze dried strawberries, coconut flakes
  • peanuts, banana chips, dried apricots, dark chocolate chips”

Prunes Are Super Helpful

“I also really like to have a container of prunes with me. Super helpful when traveling if you feel like you get dehydrated and constipated or that a change in cuisine has bloated your GI tract.”

Citrus & Apples

“Citrus and apples travel very well and can hang around for a good amount of time. Clementines (think those ‘Halos’ that come in the bags at the store) are great and easy to transport, as are full sized oranges, grapefruits or tangerines. Apples of any variety or color are also easy to eat and easy to travel with.”

Other Items I Am Never Without on the Road:

  • “Hummus with carrots and pita chips
  • Jar of all natural peanut butter and a loaf of pre-sliced oatmeal bread or bag of pre-sliced wheat bagels
  • Pouches of fruit puree (yes, the ones for the little kids!)
  • Cans of tuna fish (tuna packed in olive oil) or packets of tuna (flavored ones are fine!)”
