It’s the middle of the week and perhaps you’ve hit a rut, a wall, a slump; whatever the case there’s nothing like a midweek pick-me-up snack. They don’t call it “hump day” for nothing. Between early morning yoga classes and cardio sculpt, it is important to stay nourished and feed your body fuel that helps it produce energy, not reduce energy. Life is busy, and when we are all doing our best to stay as healthy as possible, quick and easy go-to recipes can ease stress while keeping health goals in check. Here are two snacks we are nibbling on come Wednesday, or any day really.
One slice of fresh whole grain bread. If you are gluten-free we suggest srsly ; a favorite of (O2 founder) Brittany’s.
2 tablespoons of Kite Hill cream cheese
Drizzle of honey
Top with sliced figs or fruit of choice
*For an extra boost sprinkle ground flaxseed and chia seeds on top
Toast the bread lightly so it is warm with a crisp
Spread the cream cheese
Drizzle honey on top
