Hello to you! The one looking for some new quick and easy snacks, lunches, etc! I was feeling better about this post until I typed it out and realized how basic these meals of mine are 😂 But that's okay. The point is to hopefully make your life a little easier and introduce you to some new things! This is usually what my weekday food looks like. I only drink coffee and take nuts or a Sargento snack pack to munch on til lunch. Then I eat a light lunch because dinner is always my heaviest meal. Everything is linked so you're able to see what it looks like on the shelf, and hopefully it's easier to find!

I'm not a huge breakfast eater, so these are things I eat for breakfast or snack on between meals

Mixed nuts
 I like the huge jar from Sams. I usually don't eat more than 2 servings! They're very filling, and full of good fats, but still kinda high in calories

Sargento cheese/nut snack packs

Premier protein shakes
 Carmel is my favorite. And if you want a nutritious/filling caramel macchiato, go to your fav coffee place and ask for 2 shots of espresso on ice in a large cup. Pour your shake in, mix it up, delishhhh!

- Quaker fiber & protein oatmeal
 150 cal, 25 cal from fat, 7g protein, 7g fiber

- Nutpods coffee creamer
 I found these when I did the Whole30 diet for like 12 days 😂 They're yummy and low in calories. Now that I'm not doing Whole30, I need a pinch of sugar since they have none haha.

Kodiak Cakes Waffles
 yummy and 6g of protein per waffle. They also have dry mix if you want to make your own

- Sara Lee bread (90 cal for 2 pieces) toasted + peanut butter (2 tbsp) + drizzle of honey
 Some might argue that pb isn't that healthy, but I only use serving size and it's very filling for me

Dannon light & fit greek yogurt (80 cal, 12g protein) + fruit + honey

Sara Lee bread + 1/2 avocado + everything bagel seasoning + feta cheese

Tuna in olive oil & dill + 1 tbsp mayo + relish + boiled egg + Greek Yogurt as a side

- Stir fry kit + chicken + basmati rice (1/2-1 cup)
You can find the kit in the produce section, and I usually just use canned chicken to make it super quick

- Mahi fish + basmati rice

- Ole wrap + scrambled egg + avocado + feta cheese + spinach + salsa + sour cream
 *pictured at the beginning of the post!

- Lettuce mix + tuna + black beans + feta cheese + avocado + croutons + dressing

Poppyseed salad dressing
10 cal/per serving. Fat free, sugar free, but full flavor! And kinda sweet

Caesar greek yogurt salad dressing
45 cal/per serving. Find it in produce!

- I don't know if you'll qualify this as healthy, but it's a 500 calorie pizza if you eat the entire thing, which I do 😅 This is pictured at the top of this post!
Naan bread + 1/2 C reduced fat mozzarella + Mama Mary's pizza sauce + sliced grape tomatoes + sliced spinach + sprinkle of feta cheese + salt, pepper, garlic salt, oregano

- 1/2 spaghetti squash + spaghetti sauce + ground turkey
 Spaghetti squash is an amazing alternative when you're wanting noodles but need to make a healthier choice! You can also make a taco boat out of it instead of spaghetti and switch up the ethnicities

- Orville Redenbacher's 100 calorie popcorn bags
 sometimes I sprinkle Kernel Season's on top

- Safe & Fair Granola
 'birthday cake' is my FAVORITE. This brand has a mega clean label, which makes me love it even more! Use ALEXISB10 for 10% off!

Yasso greek yogurt ice cream bars
 100 cal, 5g protein

Healthy Choice fudge bars
 100 cal. If you can't find these, the Blue Bell brand is comparable, slightly more fat though

Complete Cookies
 Be careful with these. They're huge and delicious, but the whole cookie is 420 cal. And honestly, the nutrition facts aren't much different from any other cookie. They just have a lot more protein, and are vegan, non-gmo, soy/dairy/egg/high fructose c syrup/artificial sweetener free.

Favorite toppings:
Sunflower seeds
Everything bagel seasoning
Feta cheese

Other healthier options/items:
Kale salad kit

Extreme wellness ole tortillas
 50 calories per wrap, 4g protein, and low carb!

- Cook with ground turkey instead of ground beef

- Substitute with almond milk or coconut milk. The Califia Farms brand is so good

- Pay attention to serving sizes and try to follow them!

- One major thing that helps me stay on track is logging my food in My Fitness Pal app. You'd be amazed at how much mindless eating or over eating you can do without realizing!
