But they are some of my preferred to go foods on the go, when travelling, on trains, or out for the day. Or simply to have on standby (in the case of ready meals and oven cook foods) for times when I’m exhausted and can’t be bothered to cook.
The basis for all of them is the same; protein plus veggies or fruit, plus fat and/or starch depending on your needs.
This video has my favourite go to snacks for when I’m busy & hungry, which let’s face it is quite often!
I aim for 100-200 calories plus fruit for an afternoon snack depending on the time between lunch and evening meal. In the morning it’s either fruit, veg sticks, or nothing if I don’t feel hungry.
