was wondering what foods or snacks you would eat if you are low on energy, too busy or just plain lazy to cook.

 

must be easy and quick.

Trail mix, banana or apple or celery and peanut butter and raisins, burrito with refried beans fillng, hummus and baby carrots and pita, bagged salad greens with a can of beans and some croutons, protein shake, melted daiya and maybe sliced tomato on pita or tortilla in toaster oven. Now I'm hungry. smiley.gif

My honest answer would be coffee and fruit. NOT a good suggestion though, but I do that a lot. I'm really lazy about eating enough, especially in the mornings. 

 

Trying to break this habit though, so, lately I've been keeping some veggie soup on hand. I don't like canned foods because of the chemicals, but soup is healthier than just coffee and super fast. I've also been making some cream of wheat - not the original kind, I buy the Bobs Red Mill kind which is good with soy milk. I also keep pea pods, carrots and other fast veggies in the fridge. 

 

Oh, also Trader Joe's has some microwaveable brown rice in their frozen area, which cooks in like 3 mins. I make that, toss in some veggies and orange sauce or other stir fry sauce, add some fruit on the side and call it a day. 

 

When my son is here I always cook, but when he's at his dad's I get hyper lackadaisical about eating. The above stuff helps.

I keep stuff like granola bars or other types of semi-healthy snack bars at my desk at work. I always make a point of taking a lunch break, but this is for when I need something between meals.

I find peanut butter works great as well as avo and cottage cheese on crackers.

 

made my first green smoothie yesterday and think one a day is def going to be a must.
