10 easy snacks for the on-the-go girl

Trust us when we say we know just how busy the school week can get. It's filled with sports, clubs, classes and homework. There's no better way to stay on top of all of this than a bite to eat! Except it can be hard to find something that's not only delicious, but also healthy and easy to take wherever you go. You're in luck, because we've found 10 of the best easy snacks for every busy gal. 

1. Luna bars 

Luna bars are v. easy to take on the go—and they taste ah-mazing. There are so many flavor options, so you'll never get tired of them. They even have minis!

2. Granola 

Granola is such a simple yet perfect snack. Whether you buy it at the store or make it yourself, you really can't go wrong. Mix in nuts, oats, fruit or yogurt to re-energize for your afternoon.

3. GoGo Squeez

If you're into a traditional applesauce or want endless fruity flavors, a GoGo Squeez has got you covered. It's the perfect pick-me-up for when you're in-between activities.

4. Dried fruit 

If you aren't already a dried fruit fan, you def will be soon. Practically every grocery store has dried fruit, and the best part is there's *so* much variety. Choose from apricots, apples, bananas, strawberries and so much more. We are especially loving the Trader Joe's travel pack apricots.

5. TJ's trail mix 

If you can't already tell, we are big Trader Joe's fans. (Honestly though, how can you not be?) You *need* to check out their trail mix. They have small sizes, regular packs and practically every type of trail mix you can imagine.

6. Sargento Balanced Breaks 

These are the *perfect* protein boost when you need a little extra energy. Throw them in your backpack or lunch box and you'll be good to go.

8. Fig bars 

You either love 'em or you hate 'em: fig bars. If you need a little after-school boost before sports, these will keep you full until dinner. We love these from Nature's Bakery.

9. Single-serve Greek yogurt 

Mix in fruit, granola or, honestly, just eat it plain. There are so many options (and flavors) that you'll never get tired of it.

10. Popcorn 

Can you ever go wrong with popcorn? We especially love the kettle corn from Boom Chicka Pop. GL tip: Buy the single-serving bags so that they last longer.
