Grab three graham cracker squares to get 15 to 20 grams of carbs and a tad of peanut butter, or a small apple sliced or halved with a tad of peanut butter.

2 slices of thinly sliced rye toasted with a slice of cheese...Borden Fat Free cheese is 30 calories a slice....or reduced sugar jelly

Fage 0% plain yogurt cup with honey....all you need is a plastic spoon and it's a throw away container when you get to work.

Cottage cheese cups are also available...add crumbled walnuts or matchstick carrots, don't forget the plastic spoon...Cottage cheese if low in fat and high in protein

Overnight oats (also called refrigerator oats). I've been living off them lately but they're lovely and you can make so many different combos/flavours.

The basic recipe is 1/4 cup old fashioned oats (or quick), 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (you can also use light ricotta cheese or cottage cheese), 1/4 cup milk or milk alternative (I actually do 1/3 cup).

But you can add anything to it you'd add to your oatmeal and yogurt. Just combine the night before and put it in your fridge overnight in a Tupperware container and tada! It's ready to grab and go in the morning and delicious! You can add flaxseed, oat bran, wheat bran etc. for added fiber. I like wheat bran because it doesn't add much to total calories but gives you a lot of fiber but I also use ground flax. You'll get plenty of protein from the Greek yogurt (or cheese) and milk if you use cow or soy. Add whatever fruit you like (unsweetened applesauce would work too) and spices, extracts, nuts. I add cinnamon and nutmeg to nearly everything.

Mine usually run about 200-250 cals (I eat a small breakfast because I workout in the AM) and with they added fiber, are very satisfying. If you need even more fiber, do berries.

Here's a few recipes to get you started:
