For the busy woman, here are my favourite snacks to rustle up :

1. Egg white Omelet

Egg White Omelets with Spinach and Tomato, is easy, energizing, and pretty damn filling too. It should last you past lunch, even if you get too busy and miss it. Whisk up the egg whites.  To it add,  a dash of extra virgin olive oil, some finely chopped up onions, tomatoes, ham and one tablespoon of low fat milk. Then , in small skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sautee some onions and cook the eggs for 30 seconds. Now add some spinach, tomatoes and cook for a while. Pour the whisked egg white over the contents of the pan and simmer until nicely golden. Add salt and pepper to taste, fold the omelet. Remove from heat – voila.. ready to eat!

2. Banana Quesadilla

You use whole grain tortillas that you can find in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. You mash the banana and spread peanut butter (or any other nut butter) on your tortilla. And then.. here’s the good part. In the microwave, heat up the mixture. This renders the banana all mushy and the tastes will all melt into one, and send shockwaves of deliciousness down your spine. Spread it all over the heated up tortillas and voila.. banana quesadilla! This snack will take you less than 2 minutes to make which is terrific. You will never eat another power bar once you have this!

3. Sliced Tomato with a sprinkle of Feta and Olive Oil

This is easily prepared at home and you can bring it to work in a container. Slice up your fresh tomatoes, and to it add feta cheese and olive oil. Also add some rocket salad leaves if you like. It keeps well and you can eat it anytime of the day, even at work. Hassle free and takes no time at all to prepare.

4. Banana

Naturally prepackaged goodness you can take anywhere, with the added benefit of cramp-preventing potassium.

5.  Peanuts and Dried Cranberries

Toss 2 cups full of roasted peanuts (almonds are the best kind) and to this add 1 cup of dried cranberries.  Mix them inside a plastic baggies. You may carry this in your handbag and much it while stuck in traffic even. A great healthy snack that won’t make you pile on the calories.
