I receive a lot of questions from my readers where they have been doing much better at choosing healthy breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, but they are still struggling to find good ideas for healthy and quick "mid-meals"... especially a quick small meal or snack that can be brought to the office or on road trips (so you can avoid the fast food junk!).

The problem that I see most people having is being prepared enough to bring healthy "mid-meals" with them to work for the day. If you don't plan ahead,  and bring something healthy and balanced with you when you're out and about for the day, or at work, you're going to end up choosing the junk food at the vending machine or corner store.

So here are some of my favorite natural foods based mid-meals that I've used for years with great success and that lots of my clients love too. I want to keep things simple here, so I'm just gonna give a couple of my easiest, quickest, and healthiest...

Quick, healthy snack ideas to keep your body lean:

  • Apple or other fruit with almond butter (apple slices with almond butter is one of my favorite snacks!)
  • Hummus with carrot sticks or sliced red/yellow/orange peppers (always choose hummus made with olive oil instead of unhealthy soybean or canola)
  • Guacamole with carrot sticks or sliced red/yellow/orange peppers  
  • Ricotta cheese (grass-fed if possible) mixed with cocoa powder, stevia, and vanilla extract (delicious high protein, low carb snack!) 
  • Cottage cheese mixed with yogurt, berries, and walnuts or pecans
  • A couple hard boiled eggs (I like them with mustard) with carrot and celery sticks and hummus (roasted red pepper hummus is my favorite)
  • Celery sticks with organic almond butter (a classic quick healthy snack)
  • My famous healthy chocolate FUDGE recipe
  • Avocado slices wrapped in nitrate-free deli turkey breast (one of my favorite quick snacks)
  • This "healthy balls" recipe, which is super-tasty and easy to make (keep these in your freezer, so you always have them available for a snack attack)
  • Fresh sliced pineapple with a handful of macadamia nuts
  • a bowl of blueberries mixed with raw almonds
  • my quick and healthy fat-burning chocolate pudding recipe
  • Cottage cheese with cinnamon, apple slices, and walnuts (mmm, mmm good)
That should give you some ideas to start working with.  Now you have ZERO EXCUSES for resorting to junk food snacks on the road or at the office, when you have all of the delicious and healthy fat-burning snack ideas right here! 

Another great option you can try if you simply need a really quick and convenient snack to hold off your appetite for a couple more hours before the next meal are these NEW protein cookies

They taste awesome, and have 12 grams of protein per cookie along with a whopping 6 grams of fiber, and very little sugar (and ZERO artificial sweeteners!) ... I recommend the chocolate chip variety, which is my favorite.  I LOVE these chocolate chip protein cookies with a piping hot cup of organic coffee mid afternoon!
