People don’t often get the time to prepare a meal. Many turn to restaurants and fast food to get their daily meals, but that can get expensive and unhealthy. Eating on the run can be challenging, but this article will help. A low APR credit card will make it easy to buy healthy and cheap food that you can prepare and eat on the go.
1. Wheat Thins and String Cheese
Wheat Thins are healthy and whole grain crackers that offer plenty of fiber and whole grain carbohydrates to help fill you up. Wheat Thins go great with string cheese because the cheese offers healthy protein that will help you fill up as well.
2. Apple with Milk
This snack is healthy and tasty for both you and the kids. The apple is high in fiber, while the milk provides lots of Calcium, Vitamin D, and Riboflavin. It’s quick, easy to eat, and completely guilt free.
3. Wheat Bagel with Cream Cheese
Whole grain bagels are filled with fiber and can keep you and your kids full for several hours. The dairy in cream cheese will help that “full feeling” last longer. For a less fatty option, consider only eating half a bagel with reduced fat cream cheese.
4. Yogurt with Fresh Fruit
Fresh fruit should always be considered for your snacking needs. Fruit eaten in tandem with yogurt can turn it into a full meal. Yogurt even has a number a health benefits that are only enhanced with the presence of fruit. Just be sure to avoid yogurt that has fructose or high fructose corn syrup, these ingredients can take away that “full feeling”.
Pretzels are a great comfort food, and combined with peanut butter, they’re surprisingly filling. Eat some pretzel sticks with about 1 tablespoon of peanut butter for a healthy, enjoyable on the go snack.
