    Default Healthy horse show snacks

    What do you take to horse shows/events to help you stay away from the junk food?

    Here are some of my favorites:

    turkey and cheese rollups. Split a string cheese stick in half, and roll each half up in a slice of turkey. I like the Honey Roasted and Smoked pre-sliced packages at Costco, and Precious mozzarella string cheese. (200 calories)

    Yogurt and Cheerios. I was never a fan of cereal-and-milk, and found that I like this much better! Plus, yogurt is easier to pack in the cooler. Yoplait light yogurt + regular Cheerios (200 calories)

    Whole wheat bagel and peanut butter. Make these up before you go and slice in half. 1/2 Thomas' whole wheat bagel + 1 Tablespoon of Jif peanut butter (215 calories)

    Clif bars range from 240-280 calories. I find that eating one of these along with a bottle of water is very filling. I also like Luna bars, but find they're less filling (and I eat the S'Mores bars like candy if I have them around!)

    Your turn!
    ... and Patrick

    We love grapes, triscuits (Mare loffs them!), string cheese, cubed cheese and lunchable type stuff. When we can, we take crock pots full of soup & such.

    Grape tomatoes.
    Baby carrots.
    Fiber One bars (very filling for a small thing, 150 cals)
    Dannon Lite n Fit yogurt cups for a sweet taste (80 cal)
    Peanuts or cashews in one ounce serving bags sold by the box in Sam's Club

    I also make tuna on wheat so I have carbs and protein, or else PB&J on wheat.

    String cheese, grapes, chocolate milk, prepackaged fruit salad

    Last away show I went to, we had a pot luck picnic lunch, which worked out great. Someone even brought strawberries, so we feasted like kings.

    Bananas! I love bananas at horse shows, it keeps me going when I have to be there at 5 to school and braid, and apples.
    Quaker Oat Chewy Granola Bars at 90 calories - a nice little boost of carbs. I always bring Gatorade in the summers. I am also a huge fan of the Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds - almonds dusted in dark chocolate. They come in convenient 100cal packs, and are almost guaranteed to keep me away from the donuts and muffins when I need sugar. Quaker also makes mini rice cakes in a variety of flavors, and my horse loves the apple cinnamon and honey graham kinds.
