When you’re on the go and hunger strikes, munching on a healthy , travel-friendly snack from home could save you a trip to the drive-thru – not to mention time, money, and calories.

Small fries might cost you $1, plus roughly 230 calories, 160 milligrams of sodium, and 1.5 grams of saturated fat. But 23 almonds? That would have about 170 calories, no sodium, and a gram of saturated fat, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Here are some other healthy snack ideas that you could eat on a plane, train, or automobile.
