It’s that time of year again: midterm season. DUN DUN DUN..
These next two weeks will be crazy with two research papers, four exams and loads of laundry to pack for spring break..joy. It can sound super easy to run to the vending machine during your six hour grind at the library or emotionally eat to cope with the stress. But, I challenge you. I have come up with five amazingly, healthy snacks combos that will fuel your body with good energy and nutrients, and your spring break bod can still shine!
1. Rice Cakes and Peanut Butter
Rice cakes make a great substitute for bread on the go and it’s even better when paired with a nice source of protein! Eat with fruit to jazz it up.
2. Chocolate Milk and Banana
Bananas are packed with potassium and good carbohydrates, while chocolate milk provides protein and essential minerals! Plus, it’s chocolate. What’s not to love?
3. Hummus and Celery
Although hummus can be dense in calories, in the right portion it is a great source of lean protein. Serving with celery or any other veggies can guarantee getting those greens in and their multiple vitamins!
4. Nuts, Craisans and Dark Chocolate
A quick on the go snack for minerals, energy, fats, fiber, protein, etc. Adding dark chocolate is recommended if craving sweets.
5. Greek Yogurt and Honey
Honey contains sugar but also Vitamin C and folates, while greek yogurt improves digestion like no other and provides amino acids. Put them together and have a delicious combo.
Hopefully, this helps to navigate the balance of nutrition and cravings!
