I’m running back and forth to my Lithe studios almost all day every day, which means I have to snack smart to keep my energy up. I avoid morning and midday crashes by reaching for my seven protien and healthy carb mainstays. Some I make at home, some I grab from my favorite Philly spots when I’m on the run.
PB Ricotta Roll-Up: Peanuts are full of protein and resveratrol, which lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease and fights hunger. To make at home: 1 small whole wheat wrap, 1 tablespoon of almond or peanut butter, 3/4 cup low-fat ricotta cheese + 1 tsp of honey or agave. Mix the ricotta, honey, and peanut butter, then spread on the wrap. Roll it up and enjoy … I make a batch of these on Sundays so I can grab and go during the week.
