Does your family do a lot of commuting? Here's 101 snacks for on the go to keep you healthy and out of the donut shop!

By Stacy Myers, Contributing Writer

I get questions a lot from women who want to know how to get their husband on board with their new healthy diet. I’ve been very blessed to be married to a man who pretty much goes with the flow of my kitchen journeys – and I’ve taken him on a CRAZY ride in the course of three years. Barry Myers is a saint, y’all.

But really, you say “Stacy! Ack! He doesn’t embrace my lemongrass spinach smoothies! When I offer him a piece of my leek and goat cheese grain-free tart, he makes gagging noises and runs from the room!” You want help…and I always say the same thing – give him time, honey.

As a general rule, it’s usually the women who do all the reading about healthy stuff – they read the books and blogs; they are the ones on Pinterest daily looking up recipes. You just expect your man to automatically fall in line. But it doesn’t always work that way.

101 Snacks On the Go

So, here are my tips for getting your husband to embrace a healthier way of eating:

Make the switch yourself

Don’t expect him to fall in line automatically. Let him see how much better you feel…maybe you’ll even lose weight and he’ll take note.

Make healthy versions of his favorite foods

Sure, he wants to be eating Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins…so why not make him some homemade doughnuts instead? If it’s ice cream that the man wants, make him some ice cream from scratch. It’s easy!

Pray for him.

Really. If God can move mountains, do you think He can’t move your husband? Booya.

101 Snacks On The Go

Now, so let’s say your husband HAS made the switch. But he still has to go to work, right? Well, sometimes when a man gets hungry, that snack machine calls to him pretty loudly. “Hey! You! You know you want this Snickers and 3-day old Tuna Sandwich from God-knows-where! I’m only $2!”

In order to stop the snack-machine munchies, be prepared and send snacks with him to work. It just takes a bit of pre-planning on your part.

Below I’ve given you 101 snack ideas. Really, 101. Some you might hate, but out of 101 surely you can find a few that you like – and if you don’t, I can’t help ya – seek professional help from Pinterest.

And let me up front here – some of these are things you make and send with him. So, you prepare them the day before. Some of these are packaged items from the store. And some of them are downright cheats (pork rinds, anyone?). However, I realize there are people in all different steps of their healthy food eating that read this blog – so I’ve tried to cover all of you…and my man, who loves his pork rinds.

*Note: None of these need to be refrigerated. I made it that way on purpose – just in case your man works on site and doesn’t have a refrigerator.*

So, let’s do this…snack on, y’all. Keep your man happy.
