More Simple snacks
In addition to the recipes in this post, here are some other snack ideas:
- trail mix, or healthy nuts such as almonds: ¼ cup is around 175 calories, and should be good to give you a boost of energy to power through the afternoon lull. Portion out your trail mix / nuts so that they are easy to grab and go!
- fruit: apples are great for an afternoon snack. We also love adding protein in the form of cheese or nut butter (1.5 oz is one serving size).
- smoothies: this one is hard if you don't work at home. But, a green smoothie is a great mid-afternoon snack to keep your energy levels up!
- hummus: is so versatile! Use it as a dip with veggies, spread it on rice cakes, or roll it up in tortillas (how about with some cucumber slices?).
Most of these snacks will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, and some are freezer friendly (see each recipe for specific details). If you want to prep snacks for the whole week, you can do a second meal prep session mid-week, or you can choose freezer-friendly snack ideas.
Just like prepping whole meals, you can squeeze in snack meal prep here and there in mini meal prep sessions. If you're limited for time, choose easy snacks that just involve portioning things out (such as the bento boxes below) or greek yogurt fruit dip (which takes just 5 minutes to prep)!
