These light yet satisfying snacks are great for the whole family. Prepare any of these fun grab-and-go combinations ahead of time. You’ll need one 6-inch piece of hothouse cucumber. Slice in half horizontally and scoop out seeds using a teaspoon. You’ll have 2 hollow boats to fill with any of the following delicious choices. Fast Trackers: Try my high protein version below.
