My Go-To Snacks During The Work Day

I was on February vacation from work last week (if you're new here, my full-time job is a special education teacher), so my normal meal timing looked different. Now that I'm back at school and life is busy again, I figured I'd share my go to snacks for when I only have a few minutes to eat something between students.

You want to make sure your snack includes some protein, since most people don't eat enough of that. But other than that, make it something satisfying and that you like while fitting in your macros! I'm pretty boring and I eat the same two snacks most days at school, but they fit the bill of having protein and being something I enjoy.

Morning snack: Siggi's Greek Yogurt, and I stir in chocolate granola (you can also add fruit!)

Macros - 20g protein, 34g carbs, 4g fat

Afternoon snack: Peanut Butter Brownie Built Bar (sometimes I do other flavors so the macros can vary based on which one I have that day)

Macros: 19g protein, 21g carbs, 3g fat

Some other high protein ideas I like when I'm at home:

  • flavored tuna packet with crackers

  • deli turkey roll ups with cut up veggies

  • protein shake and fruit

What's your go-to snack?
