Healthy On-The-Go Snacks

It seems like everyone has less and less time lately to prepare their own meals/snacks while juggling work, school, family, and a social calendar — or whatever it is that has your hands full. This post is dedicated to all of the busy bees out there that need ideas for quick and healthy on-the-go snacks. Any of these recipes can be made in the morning and packed for a pick me up at that 3pm time of day known as “the work lull”.OR. whip up one these at home, for your family or combine a few as a light lunch. IT is just as easy to take a few moments to plan ahead instead of waiting until you are in starvation mode and you think that a quick swing through Whataburger or Chic Fil A is a brilliant idea – put the nuggets down… – People,Β it is white jeans season. When your blood sugar crashes and you are not prepared – bad things can happen… like a carb fest that you can’t undo. SO pay attention to the below, slice up some bell peppers (they also come pre-sliced), mash an avocado, and start energizing with these simple snack solutions.
