Rucksack snacks: things to munch on the run

We’ve all been there: suddenly it’s three in the afternoon, and the day’s escaped you. You know you need a proper lunch, but suddenly you’re super hungry and the only thing available to you is the tin of biscuits in the staff kitchen. Or, you’ve had a reasonably sized breakfast, you’re out on a walk and your stomach decides it wants lunch two hours early. For these times, you need rucksack snacks: small bites to keep you afloat between meals that won’t spoil your dinner.

Here’s some of our favourite snacks to keep on hand at Khoollect HQ:

  1. Energy balls
    Although you’ll need to prepare these little treats in advance, energy balls do what they say on the tin and taste like a proper treat too.
  2. Bananas and clementines
    Enough to stop the grumbling, but not too large to spoil your next meal, bananas and clementines are two of our favourites to have on hand. Plus, if eaten within a few days, their skins protect the contents of your rucksack or handbag from getting unexpectedly fruity…no need for plastic bags.
  3. Trail mixes
    A simple mixture of your favourite nuts plus a handful of raisins or dried cranberries will keep you going for that extra hour (and eradicate your excuses to go home before hitting the gym!). Make your own, or buy a pre-made mix. Just be sure to store it in a container that won’t spill the contents through your bag. Tip: if you need that extra boost, add a little quality dark chocolate to the mix.
  4. Dried fruits
    Although you don’t want to go crazy on the dried fruits if you’re counting calories or cutting down on sugars, dried apricots, prunes and dates can be a fantastic snack to get you by. Particularly if you’re keeping active by hiking (or shopping).
  5. Veggie sticks
    Best eaten the same day, sticks of carrots, celery and even some green beans are the ideal desk-drawer snack (served with a little hummus or guacamole) or snack to munch on the run.
  6. Popcorn
    A Khoollect Team favourite, some homemade popcorn, (preferably the kind that’s low in butter and salt) is a great, light-weight  snack to keep in your bag.

Admittedly, the team is partial to some guilty pleasures too…

What do you like to keep in your bag for snacking on the go?
