PB&J Smoothie. Use frozen fruit like blueberries and strawberries instead of ice in your smoothies so they don’t get watered down. You can add whey protein to your smoothies for an extra boost before or after workouts.
Kettle Corn with Wheat Germ. Step up movie night in a few minutes with homemade kettle corn. Wheat germ adds a nutritious crunch and makes this snack a little less sinful.
Zesty Ranch Nut Mix. A healthy afternoon snack that takes only minutes to prepare, and can last for a week when stored in an airtight container.
Pizza Bagel. The ultimate quick and easy snack when you don’t have the time or patience for pizza delivery. Customize your pizza bagel with toppings like sliced olives, mushrooms, and pepperoni.

Chipotle Pimento Cheese. Stick it between two slices of bread and make a sandwich or serve as a quick dip with some vegetables; pimento cheese is always the answer.
