Eating meal replacements, sometimes up to seven of them per day, got me in the habit of having frequent, small meals. I like to have a little something to eat before leaving work and heading home in the afternoon. Accordingly, I planned an afternoon snack into my meal plan.
For this meal, I made cheese and crackers, celery sticks with peanut butter, and I added a side of granola. In practice, the granola felt a bit out of place, and I had more cheese than I knew what to do with. Next time I may just have twice as many crackers.
Each of these items is something that can be prepared ahead of time and brought into work in a cooler. Again, I used my scale to portion the cheese. As a happy accident, I learned that one of the silicone cupcake cups is about 1/4 cup. Neat.
