I need healthy snack options to keep in my purse. I find I get hungry at about 5, wich is the time I get off work, then I hop on a bus for almost an hr to get to my car, then pick up by daughter. By the time I get home its nearly 7 and I'm starving! So I binge and eat everything in sight, and that's if I even make it home before stopping at a drive thru. So what are some healthy things to keep in my purse that won't go bad?

maybe a snack bag with like 100 calories of pretzels? I know it's not the healthiest snack out there.

An apple should keep fine, or a banana.

I get tiny ziplock baggies and weigh out portions of cashews.  My kids even eat them, so I always have those handy.  An ounce of those + a bottle of water and I'm held over until I get home.

I keep a baggie of almonds and a couple of Kashi or other granola bars on hand at all times.
