healthy workout or hiking snacks

I am tired of Luna bars. Anyone have any great recipes for natural healthy snacks that have protein, good carbs and good fats? If it is portable (in a plastic bag in a pack) that would be great. Also lists of good combinations would be great (nuts, etc.).

same poster.. I also like sunflower seeds.. if you want a little bit of sweet can throw in some diced up dark choc. good for your heart and gives you energy . plus a chocolate fix . if your a chocoholic.
cant think of anything else at the moment. hope that helps some.

protein & fiber bars

I like Strive bars - hard to find - Peanut Butter Rocks...Second place is Choclate Raspberry. They are anywhere from $2.29- $3.00 each. 3 net carbs with 20 grams of protein. My personal trainer suggested them. Good serving size.

I also like Fiber One Bars. New on the market. 35% of RDA of fiber. 9 per bar. Only 2 (Oat & Chocolate) - 3 (PB) points on Weight Watchers. Takes GREAT! $3.69 for 5. Can find in Granola bar area of the cereal iasle. Good size for the point value. - SLS

dates and nuts or dates stuffed with a little peanut butter
GORP (good old raisins and peanuts)
apple slices and peanut butter
celery stuffed with peanut butter
check out the Whole Foods bulk bins...they have some interesting high energy blocks made of dried fruits and nuts, etc.

What about soy nuts, or freeze dried edamame, or even a baggie full of edamame in the shell (you will have to find a trash can for the shells)?

This is a little messy, but put a couple tbsp of hummus in a tiny plastic container and put it along with some cut up veggies in a ziplock. You have to carry around the container afterward...but it makes an interesting snack.
