Top 10 Convenience Store Snacks

Desperate times call for desperate measures! We’ve all been there – starving & nothing around for miles except a gas station with a Quicky Mart.

Here are some options when you’re in a pinch.

  1. Water. ​Most people think they are hungry when they are actually thirsty. If you know there are better options ahead, chug a bottle of water to hold off those hunger pains
  2. Nuts.​ A small serving of nuts will give you a serving of good-quality protein and fat. Look for dry roasted varieties.
  3. Fruit.​ Most convenience stores sell single pieces of fruit, like oranges, apples and bananas. Combine with a small bag of nuts you’re on your way to a healthy snack!
  4. Potato Chips. ​Yes, I did say chips but you must read the ingredients and make sure they have no hydrogenated oils, MSG or artificial ingredients. Ideally, chips are organic or non-GMO, but if you can’t find those then stick to brands with ingredient lists of potatoes, oil and salt. Avoid corn chips as they are likely to contain GMOs.
  5. Yogurt. L​ook for full-fat organic if possible. If not, just make sure the one you choose does not contain any artificial sweeteners.
  6. Dark Chocolate.​ Look for brands that list cacao as the first ingredient (instead of sugar).
  7. Hard Boiled Eggs.​ Packed with protein, these little guys will keep your blood sugar stable and your tummy satisfied. Check labels to make sure the only ingredient is egg.
  8. Peanut Butter Sandwich.​ When all else fails, this grade school lunch staple will keep your blood sugar – and energy – rollin’.
  9. Energy Bars.​ Avoid brands with soy protein isolate and look for brands that contain over 10 grams of whey protein, hemp protein or pea protein.
  10. Healthy Caffeine.​ Look for unsweetened iced tea from the fountain. Add lots of ice and a lemon. Avoid bottled, sweetened iced teas as they contain extra sugar and chemicals.
