4 Quick and Easy Snacks

Posted on

One thing that I really have a hard time with during school season is eating healthy.  I justify eating the blue-bagged Doritos with “I’m too busy to eat healthy!”

Excuses.

I thought it would be a good idea to post some easy (healthy) snacks for the business professional or student.  Because I’m no expert about eating healthy, I consulted Camie Cragg – a fitness and health enthusiast.

A little bit about Camie:  Camie lives in Reno, NV – I met her through my boyfriend (who works with her husband).  If you befriend Camie (see links below!) you’ll quickly learn that she is one of the most positive and inspirational people you’ll meet!  Her Twitter profile says it all:  “True ambition to help, guide, consult, push, motivate, educate, inspire a healthy lifestyle! Workout hard & don’t be average!” You can follow Camie on

I probed my mind for the longest time before deciding to consult Camie for some ideas.  When I asked Camie she quickly busted out four easy healthy ideas.  Camie recommended:

  1. Non-Fat Cottage Cheese with Diced Apples and a Sprinkle of Cinnamon – this is quick, easy, and can be prepared the night before.  On a personal note, I like using crushed pineapple (canned) in nonfat cottage cheese – SO YUMMY!  Play around with it!
  2. Protein Shake – fitness staple!  Protein shakes can be easily made in the morning and consumed on your drive to work.  I recently purchased a mini-blender where you can quickly make a smoothie/shake and take it to go in the cup you blended it in.  BRILLIANT!
  3. Greek Plain Yogurt with 1/4 cup Smashed Blueberries – Who doesn’t love greek yogurt and blueberries??!
  4. Small Can of Tuna with Pieces of Fruit or a Handful of Veggies – This is a great item if you don’t have a refrigerator to keep food cold.  I personally like my tuna cold, but it’s not a necessity.

Now – GOOD LUCK!  It’s possible to eat healthy with insanely busy work and school schedules.

What are some quick healthy snacks you are a fan of?  Please share!

  1. I justify not hitting the gym with the same excuses.

    Side note, the best cottage cheese ever is Trader Joe’s brand. Try it!
