Hi Jenna,
My favorite on the go afternoon snack is apple slices with laughing cow cheese. I am also obsessed with the kashi dark chocolate coconut bars. I also wanted to say that I am so jealous of you! My husband and I visit Healdsburg every summer for our anniversary so everyday when I visit your blog I revisit some very good memories!

Trail mix, easy and portable!

I LOVE date-based bars (like larabars) for time-crunch snacks but a portable piece of fruit works great, too, like bananas or apples. Easy to toss in the purse. :)

I can’t deny the convenience of grabbing an apple for a snack, but adding a handful of nuts just makes it 100x better! I like to keep things simple…

megan November 6, 2009 at 7:29 am

My favorite on-the-go snack is some kind of bar with green tea! I’ve only tried the cherry cashew pure bar, but it was tasty. I also love cashew laras and z-bars. And although it’s not a very portable snack due to messiness, a banana with PB will always do the trick!

Fancy November 6, 2009 at 7:29 am

Almonds! They are easy to pack and easy to eat. I would love to win these Pure Bars, I have been wanting to try them! :)

So, my work schedule is skewed to the rest of the world, so my afternoon snack is more like my 8pm snack. It also has to be super fast and something that does not have to be refrigerated! My fall backs are almonds or energy bars, as both can be carried with me and bites grabbed whenever I have a spare moment.

I’m totally a bar/fresh fruit snacker–they are just so easy to transport! I’ve never tried the Pure bars though… :)

In 2006 at when I moved out of the college dorms and into my own apartment at the ripe age of 18 and had to stop living off cafeteria food, I quickly learned how to make the most nutrient-dense foods on a really small budget. Having been raised vegan, I never had to think about nor really cared what my parents were preparing and how they were preparing it.

Once on my own, I immediately had my Mom send me some recipes from her cookbooks. Fortunately one of those cookbook’s was none other than Dreena Burton’s masterpiece Vive le Vegan! This cookbook literally saved me from subsisting off beans and rice from the moment I made the first recipe until I graduated. In fact, VlV! is still my first go-to cookbook when I’m stumped on what to cook.

My all-time favorite on-the-go afternoon snack would 100% have to be Dreena’s Energy Cookies (found on page 38 of Vive le Vegan!). Almost every week in college I would make a batch of these delicious cookie-muffin like babies and grab one when I was in hurry and running out of the door (as you know, the story of all college kids’ lives ^.^ ). Not only are they delicious, healthy, and chock full of nutrients, they are also extremely cost effective and you can add or take out any of the “fun” ingredients. For example: Don’t like raisins? Use dried figs!
If anyone is interested in veganism or is just looking for a new cookbook to try, I highly recommend Vive le Vegan! Dreena’s blog http://vivelevegan.blogspot.com/ also has great resources!

My fav on the go snack idea is (I do this everyday before my workout), 1 scoop Jay Robb protein (any kind), 1 scoop of berry flavored amazing grass powder, small handful of frozen blueberries. Pop this into the magic bullet and blend it up with just a small amount of water so it’s more like a pudding than a shake. Then for added crunch and nutrition I will add some raw walnuts or cacao nibs!!! Yum!!! My friends at work call it Kim’s Bile juice!! :)

Pretty much every day my afternoon snack at work is a green apple and a mini clif bar — the best combo is apple + peanut butter crunch mini clif, because it’s almost like having peanut butter on the apple, which is tough to do on the go.

I love the idea of having healthy cereal bars to grab and go (I LOVE Larabars!) but I have a very limited food budget and can’t bring myself to spend that much on a few bars…so I make my own! I’ve been using recipes I find on the internet (vegweb.com is great!). I can usually get about 12-14 bars from each batch and I pre-wrap them in foil so they’re ready to grab. Way cheaper, plus you know EXACTLY what’s in them!

OMG!!! What a GREAT give-a-way! I love raw almonds, that is my go to snack when I am on the run. Nuts are great for packing and taking with you when you dont have time to worry about food.

The Blueberry Wild Bar is MY FAVORITE thing on the planet. I havent tried any other flavor so if I win maybe this will give me a chance! Thanks so much and as always, I LOVE YOUR BLOG!
