There are times when you need a snack.
Or is that just me?
There are often a few options – plain carrots (sometimes boring) or processed vending machine snacks (sometimes not very healthy, rarely filling). And then there are the snacks that fall somewhere in between. Ideally, they’ll contain a combination of fresh foods, protein, a bit of fat and some fiber so that they stick with you for longer than 5 minutes.
Here are some of the quick snacks I rely on, please add your own to the list, I’m always looking for new snack ideas!
