Morning Commute Mornings are always hectic. By the time you get the kids to school and head to work, you realize you forgot to eat breakfast. Solution? Keep a bowl of bananas in your entryway, for a fast grab on the way out. And keep a Planters Peanuts multipack in your car. An ounce of peanuts is around 160 calories, and a medium banana has about 100 calories. That nutrient-dense combination can give you energy to start your day right.

Afternoon Meeting Hit a wall in that afternoon meeting? Pack a pick-me-up. If you know the vending machine at work sells only candy bars, prepare by keeping wholesome options in your desk for when your stomach starts to growl. Pack Planters Peanuts Convenience Packs, such as honey-roasted peanuts, and a bottle of water. Protein will help you feel satisfied, and water will keep you hydrated to help you get through the day.
