The next time you're hungry, forget about stopping at the local fast food restaurant and instead, open your side by side fridge and opt for one of these 5 quick snacks for time conscience people that are not only filling and delicious, but also healthy.



Apples and Bananas


Replenish yourself while you're out and about by opting for a quick and healthy snack such as an apple or a banana. These fruits can easily be taken with you to work, to a friend or family members house or even in the car. Bananas will not only fill you up, but offer many health benefits such as potassium that keeps your heart functioning healthily. You can even make a healthy fruit salad with your favorite fruits before leaving the house and package them in a Tupperware container to enjoy later that afternoon. Some great fruit salad items include berries, watermelon, grapes and sliced banana.

Nuts and Trail Mix


Get a burst of energy with a quick snack of trail mix. Combine a variety of your favorite nuts and seeds such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, pistachios, walnuts and almonds. Nuts and seeds contain vitamins and nutrients that fight against high blood pressure, heart disease and more. If you find yourself not having enough time to grab a healthy snack, trail mix can be purchased in individual packages to grab and take with you while on the go.

Yogurt


Yogurt is a quick snack that is high in protein and helps you to feel full even when you don't have enough time to enjoy a full meal. Yogurt can be purchased in a variety of flavors including vanilla, strawberry, blueberry and cherry. Add a little more flavor by sprinkling some granola on top for an even healthier snack choice.

Popcorn


Purchase low-fat, low-salt microwavable popcorn for a fast and easy snack for the time conscious individual. Microwave a bag before leaving home or pop it in the microwave at work for a boost of energy and full stomach throughout the day. Popcorn is also high in fiber, making it completely healthy for you if eaten in small portions without loading on the salt or butter.

Hard-Boiled Eggs


Keep some hard-boiled eggs in your fridge at all times so that you are able to take one and eat it on the go with ease. In addition to the protein that eggs provide, you will also be loading up on important vitamins such as B12 and choline.
