10 Healthy Cold-weather Snacks


Dried Fruit

If you're heading out for a chilly hike or some downhill or cross-country skiing, you'll need some fuel along the way. There are few snacks you can pack into a plastic bag and stuff in a zipped pocket as easily as sliced, diced and dried fruit. Pre-made varieties can be bought with lots of different options, including cranberries, bananas, apples, raisins and even nuts for texture. An added benefit of dried fruit is its ability to make you feel satisfied. Since it's dried, it'll get bigger inside your stomach [source: Sharpe]. Those pangs of hunger will disappear and you'll find yourself re-energized.
