Avocado Toast

Want something to hold you for a while? Try avocado toast using wheat bread. This is not only incredibly delicious, but rather filling as well.

Add some extra flavor by adding some lemon juice on top, salt, and pepper.


Sometimes you don’t always feel like food. Have a refreshing smoothie instead.

My favorite smoothie:

  • 10 ounces of Milk
  • 1 Banana
  • One Large Scoop of Peanut Butter (About 3 tbsp.)

Super tasty and a lot of protein to hold you for a while

Vegetables and Dip

Grab your favorite vegetable and your favorite dip for a quick healthy snack.

Pita Pizza

One of the best snacks of all time! Cut around the edge of a pita bread so you have two full circles. Put any tomato based sauce on both pieces.

Add cheese and any other topping and throw in the oven or microwave until the cheese is melted. You’ll thank me later.

Nutella Banana Sandwich

Best snack to relieve that sweet tooth. If you don’t like Nutella and bananas, try Nutella and strawberries or any other fruits you think would work. This sandwich will leave you with a very satisfied feeling.

Trail Mix

Before you say you don’t like trail mix, remember that it is just a mixture of multiple bite sized snacks. Add your favorite things in one bowl and boom, easy snack.

For example, if you don’t want to eat nuts and raisins in a trail mix, add Cheezits, pretzels, and graham cracker pieces instead.
