When I have an especially active morning, I have 1/2 a quest bar mid-morning. Then I'll have the other half at my regular snack time in the mid-afternoon.
I started doing this when I felt light-headed and dizzy during my second class of the morning. I realized I needed something to tide me over when I only had 80 calories of an IP drink in me.
I do this about once or twice a week at the most. They're expensive, but very high in protein. They also have the carb boost that I need when being active. I've been using the chocolate brownie and the coconut cashew flavors.
Other than that, I have PT chocolate soy puffs, IP snacks or drinks, or even a chocolate Zone bar for snacks. Sometimes I'll just have an RTD chocolate drink. Hmmm - the theme here is that a tiny taste of chocolate makes me happy and keeps me on track.
