Four Of The Best Grab-And-Go Snacks

One of the biggest complaints college students have about cooking is that they don't have the time. With classes, part-time jobs, clubs and more, it can be hard to cook a healthy meal every day.

The best way to keep your metabolism boosted and stay full throughout a busy day is eat small, nutritious, energy-boosting snacks.

Here are some of my favorite things to snack on until I have some free time to cook:

1. Clif Bars

Clif bars are great for lengthy days with little down-time. They're packed with protein and carbs to keep you full and energized. There are over 20 flavors to choose from but if you're looking for something sweet, chocolate brownie is the way to go.

Snack on these after a workout or if you're running between buildings on campus.

2. Freeze Dried Banana Slices

These little gems are from Trader Joe's but there are dupes at almost every grocery store. They're as simple as they sound - sliced, dried bananas. Unlike regular banana chips, these don't have any added sugar. They're perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth in class.

3. Almonds

Almonds are great brain food. A one ounce serving is high in vitamin E, magnesium, protein and fiber. Ditch the coffee and energy drinks for these when you need a pick-me-up during long nights in the library.

4. Bananas

Although the freeze dried version is great, nothing beats the real thing. Ripe bananas are portable and filling, a great snack any time of the day.

All of these snacks are filled with beneficial vitamins and minerals to keep you full and focused during long days. To check out even more healthy snacks, read this article on simple recipes you can make yourself.
