Healthy snacks?

Since I have a hard time eating 3 square meals a day with my schedule, my doctor told me to go out and buy a bunch of healthy snacks to keep with me and munch on throughout the day. So I went to the store and bought....fruit. I couldn't think of anything else! Can anyone help me with some ideas for quick, healthy, portable snack ideas? I do have a microwave and refrigerator throughout the day, it just needs to be something I can make quickly.

  • Fruit is a good one!! Yogurt, veggies (I cut them up ahead of time), there are a lot of things out there by like Special K, like protein bars, and stuff, light, low sodium soups, salads, even certain cereals, wheat thins, trail mix. I hear that a lot of docs. are saying that a few smaller meals a day are better than 3 big meals anyway, it keeps you full and helps maintain a healthy weight. That's just what I've heard.

  • You've gotten some great ideas. I like apples with yogurt, Nature Valley bars, string cheese, salad (lettuce and other veggies), fresh fruit salad (cut up the fruit you bought and make it a salad to take with you), baby carrots/carrot sticks, cucumbers (slice 'em up and eat them either by themselves or perhaps in a salad, in a wrap, or dipped in a low-fat dressing), and healthy (or healthier) soup.
