Final Note

Each of these items can be eaten by themselves as a snack or if you need a quick meal on-the-go you can double up on some of these or even combine them! For example, a protein bar or two scoops of protein are two of the quickest, easiest, and most portable meals you can ask for and you don’t even need to keep them cold! I’ve also eaten two tuna pouches and a yogurt cup for a meal many times.

Mix it up and let me know what you think about these options!
