My GO-TO Snacks


As a busy grad student, I have found it more and more difficult to leave the house with a packed lunch or snack! OH NO!

Well, I am making it a point to eat and pack nutrient dense foods for on the go-- taking advantage of the seasonal produce, high protein ingredients and making these recipes as simple and delicious as possible!

Here are my top three easy go to snacks for when I have little time to prepare food before class or work:
