If you're trying to lose weight, Vettel recommends bars with dried fruit and nuts for their fiber and protein.

Fruit-Nut Granola 

Pepitas—pumpkin seeds without hulls—are a healthy snack that boosts mood with magnesium. 



Keep the oatmeal going all day. Doerfler says beta-glucan in oatmeal lowers cholesterol and reduces heart disease risk.

Unsweetened Oatmeal

Vettel recommends this snack for weight loss. Raspberries have 8 grams of fiber per cup, and raw, unsalted walnuts have fat and protein for satiety.

Raspberry Walnuts

She says it's nearly 20 grams of protein and fat. Bates says aged cheeses have the lowest lactose levels, reducing GI distress.

Hard-Boiled Eggs

Wilson says one cup of Greek yogurt has 80 to 120 calories and 12 to 14 grams of filling protein. Find unsweetened or low-sugar Greek yogurt.

Berry-Greek Yogurt

Food can be a dip bowl. Instead of chicken wings, serve one cup of raw carrots, celery, or bell peppers with a tasty homemade dip.

Raw Vegetables

Dates, full of disease-fighting antioxidants, are the perfect sweet treat after or between meals.

Medjool Dates

Bates recommends Starbucks for on-the-go protein boxes, but making your own saves money. Wilson recommends a few cheese cubes or lean deli meat.
