5 Quick Breakfasts And 9 High Protein Snacks

A lot of people ask me for quick meals they can make or snacks they can grab that are healthy options (as opposed to hitting the vending machine).  Eating healthy doesn't have to be brain science, in fact, it's quite easy!  Below is a quick list of a few healthy and quick breakfasts PLUS some quick snack ideas for you.  These come from Team Beachbody, but, of course, this isn't by any means all that's available out there!  If you want more ideas, feel free to email me... or just stay tuned for future blogs that I post.  I'm constantly on a mission to find more options, because I always need fresh ideas too!
