I’m ALL about Quick and Easy when it comes to meals. So when I don’t have my Shakeology handy to grab for a quick lunch, I’m looking for something I can literally throw together in minutes or seconds :)
I started making these back when I first began my journey with Insanity (follow the link for more of my story!) over two years ago, and I have to admit that they’re an awesome go-to! I’ve been eating these for years, and find them not only to be a great snack or lunch, but an awesome treat!
-> Ezekiel Bread
-> Almond butter (2T)
21 DAY FIXERS!!! This will most likely be a SNACK, not a lunch if you’re a decent eater like me. LOL Here are your containers!
YELLOW CONTAINER: 1 slice Ezekiel Bread
Tsp: Almond Butter
PURPLE CONTAINER: 1/2 Banana
I think the BEST creative genius often is a result of desperate need… today being case in point. I was STARVING and REALLY wanted some comfort food. And what’s more satisfying than a super yummy taco salad?
To be honest… I go through phases of loving balsamic dressing and then… not so much. Today was one of those days, and knowing I couldn’t pile on the sour cream, I was a bit on the cranky side, since that was what I was “a hankerin'” for.

We’re in an era where we’re constantly on-the-go. We’re continually running from one thing to the next or working crazy long hours at our job. It’s TOUGH to stay on top of eating clean and consuming healthy snacks throughout the day, because we just don’t want to, or simply can’t take the extra time to, plan and prepare ahead.
In honor of ALL the crazy busies out there, I’ve put together a list of grab and go items that come in single servings that you can grab from your local grocery store, Trader Joes, or a wholesale store like Costco.
PS. If you’re a fan of the 21 Day Fix, in order to simplify it for you, I’m also including the container color to head each category.
