Portable carb sources?

  1. 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?


  2. 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.

  3. i find portable quality low gi carbs sources the hardest to find out of the three macronutrients.

  6. 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.

    That's what I do as well.

  9. Grinding oats rocks, tasty and easy

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

  11. My favorite is ground oats in water with crystal light, it's good food

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