This week's ELB topic is "favorite Grab-n-go Snack" I have quite a few of these, but first:
Days exercised this week: big fat zero
Weight change: down 2lbs from last week (I attribute that to stress, massive amounts of caffine, and sleep deprivation)
Needless to say it has been an awful week. Week one of the two worst weeks of the semester (boo!) So please forgive me if the blog is lacking this week! Any who, hopping off the soap box now and back to healthy snacks.
My number one favorite healthy grab and go snack is this:
This cheese is only 35 calories per individual wedge and they are delicious on carrots or reduced fat wheat things or triscuits. I take this snack to school once or twice a week and it always helps me get through the day without grabbing a fatty candy bar or premade mini pizza from the school cafeteria.
Another of my favorite snacks is the Nabisco's yogurt covered pretzels
I'm not going to lie. I really don't have a good grab and go recipe for you this week. I mean, granola bars are probably the best I can think of; however, I had A) no time to make granola bars and B) no cognitive function left after this week to take sweet pics and write a blog post. However, it is absolutely on my to do list (along with some gluten free snacks). So stay tuned in the coming weeks and ELB posts for some quick and tasty treats!
Now it's your turn. What are your favorite snacks? What about for road trips? How do you keep from eating McDonalds every 200 miles on a road trip?
As always, check out these lovely blogs for other great healthy snack ideas!
