Nuts and Seeds

Almonds, walnuts, pistachios, pumpkin seeds – all nuts and seeds make ideal Mediterranean snacks.

Nuts and Seeds

They're filled with protein, healthy fats, and minerals to curb your hunger. Portion some out into single-serving baggies so it's easy to grab a protein-packed nosh.

Fresh Fruit

Fruit is nature's perfect snack already portioned out into bite-sized packages. Apples, oranges, pears, grapes, bananas – they're all easy to toss into your bag in the morning. 

Fresh Fruit

For added flair, make fruit skewers with combinations like grapes, melon and berries. A small container of lemon curd also doubles as a tasty dip.

Veggies

Baby carrots, celery sticks, grape tomatoes, cucumbers slices, bell pepper strips – vegetables make tasty vehicles for Mediterranean dips like hummus, baba ganoush, and tzatziki sauce.

Veggies

Pack them individually or arrange an array of veggies into a salad-on-the go. Roasted chickpeas and fava beans also supply that satisfying crunch.

Cheese

Add cheese wedges like feta, mozzarella or goat cheese to boost snacks with protein and calcium.

Cheese

Combine them with whole grain crackers, breadsticks and apple slices for a Mediterranean-influenced lunch box. Individual serving sizes of ricotta cheese with fresh herbs and olive oil on crostini bake up nicely too.
