Snacks I'm loving

Take a look at my current at home and at work snack situation. Get some ideas and give some a try. All easy to make and all ingredients are easy to find. My main goal for these snacks was to try to keep low fat, higher carb, and moderate to high protein. My days can get pretty busy so keep carbs and protein high help to keep me going with out sugar crashes. If you are on a low carb diet, make sure to adjust as needed-and you might want to skip the rice cakes.

Muscle Milk. 
Light or regular, but always chocolate. 
I have started drinking the light more because we can get them at Costco for a really great price. On occasion I will indulge in a Muscle Monster, the vanilla tastes like a latte!

Rice Cakes and Jerky 
Last but not least my main work snacks. Any flavor rice cake (I tend to go more sweet) and some protein. Once again,  Costco has a great price for thick cut jerky that is a great midday pick me up.

These are not the only snacks I, but definitely my go-to so far. The Sunbutter toast and protein frosting are kept mainly to weekends because I don't snack at home during the week and trying to make that at work would be very time consuming. In the morning I can grab a Muscle Milk on my way out the door
