Step Up to the Calorie Counter: On-the-Go Munchies

Skip the candy bars and other empty-calorie snacks that drain the wallet and healthy eating habits.

Try one of these great ideas offered by Choose to Thrive in a recycled, easy-to-carry container.

Celery and peanut butter? Put it all in a clean, used peanut butter jar:

When you get home, wash the jar for your next snack.

Contain your dip in a container within a container, such as a baby food jar, small jelly jar or yogurt container:

Keep everything in a cooler or on ice until you're ready to eat it.

Sure, there are plenty of manufactured containers that may fit the bill as well —  but before you invest more money in containers that may not make it back from the campground, road trip or friend's car, look around at what you already have on hand.

What ideas like this can you bring to the table?
