1. Apples & peanut butter

Grab an apple, slice it up, and have with a side of peanut butter (1-2 tbsp is the average serving size). Give yourself a creative break and make your plate look as good as @jordankrausefit’s.

2.Mint chocolate overnight oats

The excite-mint is real with this one. Make your overnight oats ahead of time so you can be ready to go first thing in the morning. @beccasbowl’s layers it with a chocolate banana protein shake then tops it off with half a protein bar and some granola.

9. Oats & fruit 

You can’t really go wrong with oatmeal…it can be made 10000 different ways. @hummusjunkie adds peanut butter & fruit – between the fiber of the oatmeal and the healthy fats of the PB, you’ve got yourself an A level snack.
