No time? No problem. Having not much time is not enough reason for you to skip meals. We’ve got the easiest portable snacks you can make in minutes even when you are always on the go.
1. Hardboiled egg
Most nutritionists agree that they’re a powerhouse breakfast or snack when enjoyed in moderation but not too much because of its high cholesterol content. Aside from protein, eggs can give you vitamin D and vitamin B-12.
2. Peanut butter
Research shows that eating peanuts can decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions. A common worry about eating peanut butter is the fat content. However, as mentioned above peanut butter contains more unsaturated fat than saturated fat. This means, it is actually a great source of “healthy fats”.
What’s good about oatmeal is that its instant. Just add hot water and stir. If you want to add a little mix, you may consider including fruits, raisins or a few almonds into your bowl of protein.
If you’re on a diet, you can never go wrong with this one. Bananas help you reach your weight-loss goals, keep your bowels healthy, as well as provide nutrients that regulate heart rhythm. What’s more to it is that bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin – the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter.
Yogurt gives you bone-building calcium and is loaded with vitamins. Yogurt eaters will also get a dose of animal protein and other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, B-12, potassium, and magnesium.
6. Whole-grain protein bars
Nutrition bars are tricky. Though they provide you protein, some are loaded with sugar and fat. Read the label carefully before buying that snack bar. Aim for a bar with about 10 to 15 grams of protein with at least 5 grams of fiber and less than 15 grams of sugar.
