During the week, I am typically pressed for time. Between being a full time graduate student and worker, I must portion my time wisely. When I get home, my workload is not over; it has rather just begun. My evenings are usually spent working on various assignments, papers, and research projects (hence why I can't wait for May!!) and the last thing I want to do is spend my one hour of free time I may have over the stove. I try to eat healthy during the week since the weekends are usually filled with a lack of self-control and splurging. Because of those eating frenzies I choose to partake in, I try my best to make up for it during the week, but it can be tough. When I get home, I'm usually starving to the point where I want to eat my entire pantry. Whatever is easily accessible is my go-to. Since I can't eat Oreos and chips on the daily as an evening snack without having to purchase an additional gym membership for all those extra pounds, I began searching for healthier alternatives that are just as quick.
My latest go-to 'feed me now, I'm starving' snack has been turkey, cheese
, and crackers. I love how light the snack is without sacrificing taste.
The Alpine Lace® Swiss Cheese
has been my reduced fat cheese of choice since it's much lighter than other choices and it doesn't hurt that is has 25% less fat than most. I'm all about not feeling guilty after eating and this allows me to do just that.
I personally love pairing the swiss cheese with smoked turkey breast and a rosemary flavored cracker, but if that's not your thing then you're in luck because cheese is good on anything, am I right!?
This balanced snack helps keep me full and fueled for my busy evenings. The Alpine Lace® Deli Cheese is also good on grilled cheese sandwiches, my other favorite go-to quick snack. Head on over to their site if you are interested in a healthier alternative, there are many other flavors to choose from if Swiss isn't your thing!
What are your favorite snacks for your busy lifestyle? I would love for you to share so I can add more to my list!
