Happy Hump Day! On Monday I shared that I was doing a three part series on Meals You Can Easily Bring To Work. Monday was breakfast, today will be snacks, and Friday will be lunch. Also, for those of you who work an evening shift (through dinner), I feel like lunch can duplicated for dinner, too. Would you agree? SNACKS THAT YOU CAN BRING TO WORK
Spicy Avocado Rice Cake
You may have noticed by now, but avocado is my favorite food. Breakfast, lunch, snack time, dinner, and even dessert, avocado is my main squeeze! Ha! This simple avocado toast on a rice cake is easy, delicious, and filling (all the fiber from the rice cake and good fat from the avocado). All you need to do is smash 1/2 an avocado on a rice cake and top with chile flakes and a little sea salt. YUM!
Apple with Spiced Peanut Butter
I love an apple with peanut butter (or nut butter of choice)! Sweet, salty, crunchy, and simple to eat while at work. I also enjoy topping my PB with a little cinnamon!
Veggies with Hummus
I love having chopped up veggies ready to go! It takes a few extra minutes before putting the groceries away, but save so much time in the long run. Here is a photo of sugar snap peas with garlic hummus (TJ's). Of course veggies are great for us, but hummus is also filled with protein, fiber, and extra nutrients.
Almond Butter Rice Cake
Again, I love rice cakes! For the times you're wanting something sweet, this is the perfect treat! Simply spread almond butter on a rice cake and top with chocolate chips and coconut flakes. So simple and so good!
These almonds can be made in about 15 minutes (that includes prep and cleaning), and can yield a large amount for the upcoming weeks. These are protein packed, and have the most savory flavor because of the rosemary. Love that!
I hope these ideas spark some interest! What type of snacks do you like to eat? See you Friday for lunch ideas!
