Quick, healthy snacks?


Erza Scarlet

Recommended Posts

My days are very busy so I don't have a lot of time to cook meals (Or prepare snacks in the morning between meals).

I usually just grab a piece of fruit, but it's not that filtasty or tasty (so I usually resort to buying a chocolate bar, which isn't filling or healthy either).

Any good ideas? If it involves cooking, it'd have to be under 5 minutes.

Billtong or Beef Jerky

 

if you can find a good one, you are looking at 100g, giving you 240kcal / 50g protein and 3g of carbs .... little high on the sodium but thats easily balanced out through the day

 

got a fridge ? .... Greek yogurt, cottage cheese.

 

ultimately though - Veg !!! learn to love snacking on raw veg

5 minutes is long enough to scramble an egg and nuke it. Crack egg in a heatproof cup or bowl, add a little milk or water, beat with fork. Add a drop of soy sauce, hot sauce, syrup, garlic powder, butter, or seasoning of choice if you want. Microwave on medium high for 3 mins. Presto: fluffy "omelette."

Yeah, veg. If you can find ONE you really love, that's a great start. Then you can incorporate it into more adventurous snacks by using it as the basis of the snack. I could eat peppers all day, bell peppers, mini peppers, sweet pointed peppers... mix them with houmous or a bit of cheese or stick them in some kind of egg dish (Raincloak, I'm trying your nuked eggs btw :) ) you get the idea!

 

Not calorie dense either, and if you're paleo-inclined, a really great idea for eating your plants!

Deli meat wrapped around some vegetables like a burrito, hard boiled eggs, mixed nuts, pieces of fruit, beef jerky, canned tuna or salmon, and protein powder for instant shakes all come to mind.

I find when I eat enough at meal time snacks aren't necessary

I'm currently munching on baby carrots and cottage cheese w/a dab of sriracha. 

 

Also, I can't praise precooking enough. On Sundays I cook all of my chicken and some various veggies, portion them out into containers based on weight and I can mix and match my protein/veg daily just by grabbing a different container.
