The Simplest Snacks To Grab & Go (Or Stay!)

By Durlan Vega on

Snacking sometimes gets a bad rap, but really these mini meals keep our energy up and our metabolism revved throughout the day. So actually, snacking smart is KEY to getting the most from your workouts and feeling your best. Throughout the last year or so, we’ve actually found ourselves grazing more — having smaller meals strategically throughout the day. 

The secret to smart snacking is keeping it really simple. You don’t need to get fancy or overthink it! Whether you’re on-the-go or at home running between Zoom meetings or mama duties, you want something you can literally just grab and have right there when you want it. 

We’re rounding up some of our all-time favorite healthy snacks that are so easy they take less than 2 minutes to prep...or require no prep at all!

Tone It Up Approved Snacks

Tone It Up Cookies

These are SO good as an on-the-go afternoon snack or a treat after dinner. Soft, chewy, delicious...with 10 grams of plant-based protein. We’re obsessed with the classic chocolate chip!



Tone It Up Protein Bars

Now even more decadent and flavorful! Are you a Birthday Cake or Peanut Butter Chocolate girl..or both? ;) 



Tone It Up Protein Shakes

These are ready to sip so you can take them with you anywhere for instant fueling. With 15 grams of clean protein (more than ever!), they’re great for post-workout, the car, your gym bag, or just to keep by you on your desk during marathon meetings.
