When three o’clock in the afternoon rolls around, we all have a little dip in energy. We all know we shouldn’t grab that candy bar from the vending machine or a cookie from the pantry, but they’re just . . . so . . . tasty. Plus, they’re quick and convenient! To try to stick to our healthy eating plans, we need grab-and-go snacks that won’t take forever to prepare and that aren’t full of bad fats and calories.
