The freezer section at your grocery store is stocked with frozen entrées, but chances are you've overlooked some of the best options for quick and portable snacks. microwaveable sandwiches have a number of things going for them:
Think of microwaveable burritos and hot wraps as an extension of the microwaveable sandwich. They're filled with tasty meats, beans and cheeses within a mess-free edible wrap. The nice thing about wraps and burritos is that they give you the opportunity to eat ethnic foods on the run. One day, you can enjoy a Mexican-inspired bean burrito; the next, you can enjoy an Indian wrap.
Soup companies have made eating this hot food a cinch whether you're driving around town or sitting at your desk. Creamy soups served in handheld, single-serving portions with spill-resistant lids have turned this traditional appetizer into an easy snack. If you don't like the idea of paying more for the handheld soup containers, pour a can of soup into a travel coffee mug.
Pop four or five nuggets into the microwave before you head out the door and, when they're done cooking, put them in a plastic bag that you can carry in the car. If you're a vegetarian or you're watching your waistline, you may be surprised to know that numerous organic, healthy and meat-free nugget options are available.
While you shouldn't make a habit out of drinking your snacks, there's nothing wrong with the occasional hot and portable drink. Many coffee and tea drinks made with low-fat or soy milk can stave off hunger while giving you a late-afternoon energy boost. Just watch the added sugar, opt for a smaller serving size and ask the barista to hold the whipped cream.
Not much is more portable than food skewered onto a stick. When looking for hot snack options, consider picking up a corndog, sausage on a stick, or a simple chicken or pork kabob. The protein will fill you up, and you can easily eat your snack while walking around town.
