Carrots (or your preferred raw vegetable) and hummus?

Handful of assorted nuts are tasty and filling. Some are good for you, according to the well dressed peanut on the tin.

They already did.

(They're wrong, though; it's cheese.)

Best snack to keep you full if you have time to cook is egg. Scrambled egg you can do in the microwave. It keeps you fuller longer as protein takes longer to digest. Eggs are good for you. Eat eggs.

On that note: boiled eggs refrigerate well, if you're into that kind of thing.

In navigating the stormy seas of healthy snacking, let hummus be your beacon

They also give you pretty deadly farts, if you're into that kind of thing.

It's honestly kind of hilarious how unhealthy the stuff that comes in a NatureBox is, relative to their ad copy. There's nothing wrong with an unhealthy snack now and then, but sometimes overly credulous podcast hosts repeat the idea that NatureBox is healthy in their personal testimony and it's kind of gross. (I get they probably have to do a personal testimony, but just stick to "it tasted good," which is probably true.)

I pick snacks that don't taste that great because otherwise I will just eat forever. Sometimes I do it anyway.

Sliced frozen bananas with a dollop of chocolate syrup on each one.

Cheese is the best. Cheese is better than both the salami and the bologna combined.

When our first kid was still getting up at all hours of the night, we would keep some cubed cheese and grapes in little containers in the fridge for snacking. We both ended up putting on a ton of weight. I did the math, and each of our "single servings" was between 300-500 calories.

Cheese in moderation!

I found it a bit weird that he(?) says "I'm so hungry, I could eat a wagon wheel!" as we have biscuits here called Wagon Wheels, which I guess are like a chocolate coated attempt at a smore. I was sort of expecting it to be an ad for those.

SEMI-RELATED: most cheeses wind up looking wheel-shaped in the form they are meant to age in, but it is not advised to eat an entire wheel of cheese in one sitting

I pick up little bags of peanuts and dried fruit and etc. etc. from the bulk bins at the grocery store and mix them together at home. It's a bit cheaper than getting the trail mixes in a bag, and means I don't have to suffer sunflower seeds or pretzels mixed in as filler.

Making your own trail mix in the bulk bins is something I didn't realize I could do until WAY too late. It's the best.
