My Emergency Stash

Planning is key to not making poor choices when you are out and about. I always pack a yummy post weight loss surgery friendly snack in my purse so that when hunger hits I don't grab for crap.

Here's one of my current favorites...

Shelly's Emergency Stash Trail Mix

Peanuts
Almonds
Pistachios
Gerber Fruit Puffs (Banana, Strawberry Apple, and Sweet Potato)
Kay's Protein Cereal
Special K Cereal
Just the Cheese Crunchy Cheese (Wisconsin Cheddar flavor)
Roasted Edamame
Golden Raisins
Dried Unsweetened Cranberries

Mix 2 Tablespoons of each of the above together in a bowl.

Stir to combine. Fill 4 or more snack sized Ziploc bags.

There's a really great nut factory/candy store near where I live (and really near where they held the Obesity Help conference in PA - next time you're in town, I'll be happy to point you in the right direction). Anyway - I went there the other day to pick up some candy for a friend and ended up picking up some roasted soybeans, roasted edamame, fried green peas and toasted sesame sticks for myself. I mixed them all together in a bag, tossed them with a little salt, and it's the perfect snack for when I need something salty & crunchy.
