Healthy Living: Make-Ahead Snacks and Meals


Make-Ahead Snacks and MealsMy friend, Anthony, has been on an amazing healthy eating journey.

He has a job where his weight is closely scrutinized, and he’ll be the first to tell you that a love of Raising Cane’s chicken was not good for his figure.

So, he set about to eat healthier and make a lifelong change. He started exercising and lifting weights, and he prepares most of his meals and snacks in advance. That way, he has something ready and doesn’t resort to fast-food chicken.

He posts a lot of his ideas on Facebook, and I studied one of the posts lately to get some ideas for myself.

Some ideas for healthy, make-ahead meals and snacks include:

  • Overnight oatmeal.
  • Freezer breakfast sandwiches (whole-grain English muffins, egg whites, Canadian bacon)
  • Breakfast bowls (egg whites, black beans, baby spinach)
  • Sliced apples with a cup of natural peanut butter
  • Sliced pears with a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese
  • Tuna in a baby pita pocket
  • 1/2 cup of granola with dried cranberries
  • String cheese with 1/2 cup grapes
  • Zucchini crisps
  • Mason jar salads
  • Prepared stir-fry bags – slice up meats and veggies; store in serving-size bags (separately) and stir-fry when you get home
