Thankful for my nuts….

I always giggle like a little girl when I say the word nuts; I absolutely had to throw in a little play on words in the post title!

Now that that is out of the way I have to say I am still thankful for my nuts that I had in my purse. I was in a hurry in the work cafeteria this morning. I had a call at 9 and I was STARVING so I had the bright idea to try to squeeze in microwaving my veggies and eggs before the call so I could nibble here and there while listening.

Well wouldn’t you know I spilled absolutely every single spec of food out of my breakfast container this morning onto the floor. I almost cried out of hanger (hunger + anger = hanger) until I remembered that I have a little container of nuts and dried cranberries in my purse! I put it there on Sunday in anticipation of me being a dork at some point in the week so I wouldn’t have to rely on the vending machine. I was setting myself up for success with this little cup of unsalted / dry roasted peanuts, raw almonds and dried cranberries!

It got me thinking of what other combinations would keep well for an occasion like this. Two options came immediately to mind:  walnuts, sunflower seeds and dried bananas and almonds, dried apples and homemade granola.

What are some of your favorite / go to healthy snacks to stash for emergencies?
