Do you ever get into a snack rut? Hey, even Snack Girl finds herself eating the same thing over and over again.
I received an e-mail from Brendan, and thought I would try to help him out.
Really enjoying your blog! As a man who craves a snack in the middle of the afternoon (I'm an elementary-school teacher here in Mass), would you consider soliciting ideas for 2 ingredient quick-snack combos? Something like apples/peanut butter or even pickle spears wrapped in turkey slices. There must be some fun combinations I've never even imagined.
As a woman, I can tell you that I also crave a mid-afternoon snack. At around 3 PM, my head starts to hit my desk as I swoon from exhaustion (because sitting here and typing is SO taxing). I cannot imagine what it is like to attempt to teach a room full of elementary age students without a quick snack. Hang in there, Brendan.
I tried to imagine how little time you have if you teach kids for a snack. Also, I thought that Brendan probably wouldn’t have a stove, blender, or toaster to use to make it. These snacks are as simple as I can get. I started with Brendan’s ideas since they rock.
- Apple slices and peanut butter
- Turkey slice wrapped around a pickle
- Hummus and any raw veggie (carrots, celery, broccoli)
- Celery and whipped cream cheese or peanut butter
- Peanuts and raisins
- Edamame and salt
- Banana mashed on whole wheat tortilla
- Baby Bell cheese and whole wheat crackers
- Cottage cheese and raisins
- Avocado half and spoon
- Strawberries and square of dark chocolate
- Rice cake and peanut butter (or almond butter)
- Cheese stick and apple slices
- Greek yogurt and chopped walnuts
- Cherry tomatoes and sliced turkey
- Dried apricots and cube of cheddar cheese
- Hard boiled egg with freshly ground pepper
- Cantaloupe chunks and ham slices
Please help Brendan with his snack problem. What are your favorite two ingredient snacks?
