Tony Horton's Top 10 Snack Ideas

By Tony Horton, creator of P90X®

I rotate through this list of in-between goodies all week long. I'll even use the PROBAR and the protein shake as meal substitutes. Most of the things on this list can be packed up for travel time. The bars, pretzels, nuts, and graham crackers are perfect fast foods for when you're away from home. So no more excuses! Below are my top 10 snacks and one bonus recipe!

  1. Peanut ButterMy sticky bar of course (with banana, peanut butter, and granola); see below

  2. Almond butter (thinly spread) on organic whole-grain toast

  3. Snyder's of Hanover Organic Oat Bran Pretzels

  4. PROBAR nutrition bar (original blend), 380 calories of pure joy—and 100% vegan

  5. ShakeProtein shakemade with banana, half cup of frozen blueberries and strawberries, one tablespoon of flaxseed meal, two ice cubes, protein powder, and rice milk

  6. Food For Life's Ezekiel 4:9 cereal with almonds mixed into 8 ounces of plain nonfat yogurt and half cup of fresh blueberries

  7. Mixed NutsHandful of raw mixed nuts

  8. Mi-Del Honey Grahams (whole wheat; eight crackers are 280 calories)

  9. CLIF Nectar bars—I like the cinnamon pecan (four organic ingredients and only 170 calories)
