Healthy Mid-Morning Snack Ideas: Greek Yogurt and Frozen Fruit

November 6, 2015 Rachel Johnson

I am not a morning person. I like sleeping in and slow mornings that always include coffee. While I’m hating the fact that the sun is barely up, a filling breakfast isn’t my first priority. And hey, some folks just can’t eat that early. That’s okay! The important thing is that you eat something when you can.

A muffin or scone or a quick Greek yogurt cup is great for on the go, but when lunch seems a year away, packing a few extra snacks for the mid-morning is a great idea. Putting a calorie cap on keeping yourself tied over until lunch with snacks is key, and over the next few days, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite mid-morning snacks under 100 calories.
