Do THM snacks trip you up? I’ve gotten snacks down to a science now – I know exactly what to buy, and what to eat at home, and what to eat when I’m out and about. But that DEFINITELY wasn’t always the case! Even when I started to eat the Trim Healthy Mama way, I used to drive through for a burger even when I knew I shouldn’t! I justified it by saying that I just didn’t have time for anything else.
Now, I know better. I made these lists of snacks based on my own lack of self-control. I know that if I have just one burger at a drive-through, I’ll justify more cheating and unhealthy foods.
Here are a few of my favorite no-prep snacks:
- deli meat
- Oikos 000 yogurt drinks or yogurts
- tea with collagen
- mini-packs of olives or pickles
- seasoned tuna packs
- Lily’s Chocolate
- Quest bars (but only in emergencies – they are on-plan, but I really think they make me gain weight)
I made a quick video to show how I pair the foods and what fuels they are, for those of you who are visual learners! I hope this helps you out:

I didn’t mention some of the other very convenient foods at the store: Skinny Pop (THM E, but only in small portions. I usually grab the 100 calorie bags), deli meat, pre-boiled eggs (although I’m not brave enough to buy boiled eggs straight from the store), pre-grilled chicken, and pre-packaged veggies with ranch (these look like mini veggie trays with ranch dressing. Be careful not to choose one with an off-plan dressing).
