    Portable carb sources?


    Looking for simple things that don't have to be cooked or refrigerated. A few so far:

    Whole Wheat Bagels (I usually add fat free cream cheese)

    Fruit- Bananas, Apples, etc. Prunes & Raisins are especially portable.

    Kashi Granola Bars

    I'm not sure about rice cakes, but I assume they are fairly hi GI.

    Baked beans fit the category I guess, if you like to eat 'em cold like I do. You'd also need a can-opener & a spoon though.

    Any other ideas?

    Triscuits - whole grains, but have salt (as compared to bagels).

    Any of the whole wehat cold cereals.



    Rice cakes are high-GI, so be careful with those.

    I prefer the multi-grain bagels to the whole-wheat ones. They are a little harder and dont have the little things on top of it that make a mess everywhere. Of course I am talking about Thomas's bagels, I am not sure which one you buy. A portable meal for me is a shake with 1-2 cups of skim, 1 tbsp flax or fish oil, and a multi-grain bagel.

    I put ground up oats in just skim milk and chug away for some carbs before and after class or work etc.

    I've always been a fan of yogurt because it comes in perfectly portioned containers and is real cheap.
