The star of this week's meal prep is the hard-boiled egg, filled with protein and good fats. By containing plenty of vitamin A and vitamin D, the egg also promotes good eye health and strong bones – and packs it all in at only 80 calories.
For a balanced snack box, include some decadent (but still healthy) cheese cubes, and add cucumbers, carrots and apples to reach your daily fruit and veggie serving goals. The entire box is under 300 calories and packed with foods that are great for the body and the soul.
As long as you have convenient, compartmentalized snack boxes to pack your noms in, filling them up is easy. Take a look at these top LIVESTRONG.COM suggestions, from 100-calorie snacks to fast convenience store options and snacks you can make at the office. It does not always have to be raw foods – Srirarcha popcorn is a great antioxidant-rich snack for the days when you're just craving a little something salty.
