Quick and easy meals/snacks for the barn

Does anyone know any quick snacks or meals for the barn?
I am at the barn everyday all day and last year I didn't eat because I didn't know what to eat because I never had time to make anything. This is bad because I am 14 and need to eat!
I need something healthy because its show season but something fast because I don't have time to cook something.
Meal or snack

Buy an electric kettle, so you can boil water, and take ramen noodles or cup a soups.
Or better yet, you can pick up small microwaves from Walmart for about $60, and then your choices are endless.

Hotdogs rolled up in aluminum foil laying on the intake of the car engine that gets you to the barn. When you get there they will be good and hot so be careful.

You could do this with any kind of food that can be wrapped in foil. Make you some healthy style chicken wraps or something as such and place it on the engine where it won't fall off going down the road. I have done this on many occasions when offroading with my jeep and the old timers told me that's what they did back during world war I and II while out in the middle of no where.

Apples and peanut butter. Slice the apples in the morning, and put some peanut butter in one of those reusable Ziploc containers with a lid. Easy peasy, and plenty of protein and electrolytes.

IF you have a fridge or cooler, yogurt.

Sandwiches are good. I like mine with avocado slices.

Crackers, cheese and grapes.

You could also get a teeny foreman grill if you have access to electricity. Near and even not sandwiches! Quesadillas! Tacos!

With the microwave you could pretty much do anything.

Granola bars, baggies of nuts, fruit, copper veggies.

If there is a fridge, bring sandwich meat and bread and just keep it all there! Also smoothies and meal drinks are pretty good and don't sit so heavy on your stomach when you are trying to ride. I almost ALWAYS have cracker packs (nabs) with me when I go to the barn, along with granola bars and baby carrots. Good to see that you are trying to eat healthy instead of picking up junk food along the way!

I rarely see anyone call them nabs anymore. I call them that and people look at me like I'm the elephant man. I grew up calling all peanut butter and cracker snacks Nabs because of Nabisco being a huge manufacturer of them. Everyone around me called them that and the older I got and the further north from the coast of La. I went the less people heard of it.

I think it's awkward calling them cracker snacks or pb crackers or whatever those "other people" call them

If you're not allergic to peanuts:

1. Toast up a couple bagels at home, take a jar of peanut butter, a butter knife and the bagels to the barn. Peanut butter is a good high protein food plus it acts as a good sweet treat. A bagel will fill you up faster than two slices of regular bread

2. My favorite sandwich to pack for a trail ride is rye bread, provolone cheese, hard salami (not the same as cooked salami) and mustard. It won't spoil

Stay away from sodas. The sugar in the sodas will only make you more thirsty and hungry

3. If your horse isn't metabolic and can have an occasional treat, take a couple apples. Cut them up making one bite for you, one bite for your horse -- as long as your horse doesn't get nippy
