2. Almond Butter Toast

You can take this snack with you by storing it in a Mason jar or travel mug, such as those meant for soup. Toast 2 slices of whole grain bread. Cut into ½ inch wide stripes. Put 2 tablespoons of almond butter, peanut butter, or whatever nut butter you have on hand, in the bottom of the container. Now, stick your toast sticks into the nut butter vertically and add a dash or two of nutmeg and cinnamon. Put the top on and you have a super tasty snack for later on in the day.

 

3. Cottage Cheese Stand-By

This is an all American classic snack. Top ½ to ¾ of a cup of cottage cheese with ½ a cup of your favorite fruit. If you can’t decide, try some super fruits for super nutrition, such as blueberries, mixed berries, bananas, cantaloupe, watermelon, or whatever you have on hand.

 

4. Mixed Nuts

This is a super easy, ready-in-seconds snack that can’t be beat. Put mixed nuts in small containers so that you can simply grab one as you head out the door. For a little change of pace, add a few shelled sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or dried fruit to your nuts for little added flavor or sweetness.

 

5. Cute Quesadillas

These take just a few minutes to make, but the flavor cannot be beat! Mix ½ cup of black beans (or refried beans) 1 tablespoon of salsa, and 1 slice of cheddar cheese on a flour tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half and place on a griddle or dry pan until the tortilla is slightly brown. You can eat this hot or wrap it up in a piece of foil to reheat later on. These are actually pretty tasty cold as well.

 

6. Fast and Easy Oatmeal Cookie

Here is a little twist on an all-time favorite. In a large coffee or soup mug, mix ¼ cup of oats, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour, 1 egg white, ¼ teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of raisins, and ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix everything up, and then flatten the mixture out. Microwave on high for 45 seconds to one minute (depending on the power of your microwave); allow to cool for just a few seconds; and then pop it right out. Eat your cookie warm or allow it to cool completely, the choice is yours. Warning: These cookies are highly addictive!
