Gym Bag Snacks

Nonperishable Snacks to Stash in Your Gym Bag

A banana seems like a great pre- or post-workout food to throw in your gym bag, but not if it's forgotten about until your entire bag reeks of rotten nanners. Since fueling before and after a long, hard workout is important to give you energy and help muscles repair and recover so you can hit it just as hard next time, it's best to stick with nonperishable nibbles that can stand to sit in your bag for a week or so. If you're a gal on the go, here are a few tasty, low-cal choices to stash in your bag.

  • Package of unsalted raw peanuts and mini boxes of raisins (18 nuts are 104 calories, one mini box of raisins is 45 calories): 146 calories.
  • Small packages of Late July Organic Mini Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers: one bag is 120 calories.
  • Shelf-stable Silk SoyMilk: one eight-ounce container of Very Vanilla is 130 calories, and Chocolate is 140.
  • Kind Nut Delight Bars and a bag of dried apricots (half a bar is 105 calories, three apricots are 50 calories): 155 calories.
  • Package of unsalted sunflower seeds and bag of medjool dates (one tablespoon of seeds is 47 calories, four organic dates are 100 calories): 147 calories.
  • Barbara's Bakery Raspberry Fig Bars and raw almonds (two bars are 120 calories, five almonds are 35 calories): 155 calories.
  • Kashi Cinnamon Oat Heart to Heart Cereal: 3/4 cup of cereal is 120 calories
  • Annie's Homegrown Cheddar Bunnies snack packs: one-ounce pack is 150 calories.
  • Mini Clif Bars and dried cherries (Crunchy Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, Chocolate Chip, or Blueberry Crisp are each 100 calories), half an ounce of organic dried cherries is 50 calories: 150 calories.
