These days who isn’t on the run? With never enough time in the day, I am always scrambling to create a meal I can quickly eat on the go.
Anyone can grab a muffin or throw a cheese sandwich together, but ideally, I try to look for something healthy.
As a stylist and mother of three, I often eat quickly, en route, between appointments.
- For breakfast, oatmeal and berries in a “to go” cup
- I also like sliced hard boiled eggs, guacamole and jalepeno peppers layered on ezekiel bread or GG crackers
- Pastrami Smoked Salmon with a smear of light cream cheese on GG crackers
Here are a few satisfying and healthy suggestions from some friends in the know and “on the go”.

- Blanched asparagus with two hard boiled eggs and capers on top are the best breakfast to go!

- Mason Jar Salad – Pre-make a salad in a mason jar that is easy to eat on the go. Start with the dressing on the bottom: Balsamic vinegar thickened with Dijon mustard. Next, Layer non-starchy veggies like cucumber, tomatoes, radishes, bell pepper, carrots, and green beans. You can also add lentils or beans here. Last add lettuce of your choice such as kale, spinach or arugula. They go on top since they are the lightest.
- Wrap – Use rehydrated rice paper sheets to pre make burrito style rolls with cooked shrimp or chicken, shredded cabbage, carrots, and mushrooms. Make a peanut sauce with PB2 powdered peanut butter and low sodium soy sauce.
- Sesame Salmon lettuce wraps (2 ounces canned wild salmon tossed with 1 cup broccoli slaw (no mayo), and 1-2 tbsp Ginger dressing, wrapped in 4 large lettuce leaves
