When 3:30 p.m. rolls around on a school day, I am famished. What to eat that will fill me up and get me to supper time? It has to be something healthy and it has to be enough calories to keep me from stuffing my face with the first thing I can find when I get home from school.
I found a good trail mix recipe that I shared with you in an earlier post. Now I have another one, that fits the bill. I’m sharing it with you so you you can enjoy it too. It’s only 251 calories and has a scant 3 grams of added sugar.
1/2 cup whole milk plain yogurt. (I use Stonyfield)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup gluten free Honey Nut Cheerios.
Put the yogurt in a 1 cup plastic container with a lid, add the raisins and stir them in. It’s best to do this the night before. They get big and plump and delicious!
Put the Cheerios in a 1/2 cup plastic container. Take it to work and when you are ready to eat, stir the Cheerios into the yogurt and raisin mixture.
*If you want less calories, try fresh fruit like strawberries or grapes instead of raisins.
This gives you just the right amount of sweetness and the whole milk yogurt will keep you feeling full until dinner time.
Try it and let me know how you like it!
