7 Healthy Eating Tricks You'll Actually Want To Try

Lots of snacks in here, if that's your thing.

1. For a lower-carb breakfast that isn’t just eggs, try these simple four-ingredient pancakes.

Whether or not you opt for an artificial sweetener or something natural like honey or maple syrup — which will add a little sugar and, therefore, a few carbs — these flourless, crepe-like pancakes made with cream cheese have fewer carbs and more protein than traditional breakfast 'cakes.

2. Make your own summer rolls with rotisserie chicken and pretty much any vegetables you want.

It's cheaper than takeout, requires minimal chopping and ZERO cooking, and honestly it's pretty fun. Oh, and did I mention the sauce is made of Sriracha and peanut butter? Recipe here.

3. Studying for finals? Facing a looming deadline and working overtime? Snack smart, on things that will fill you up but leave you feeling energized, not lethargic.

Try packing veggies and hummus in a Mason jar, or making a healthy sweet treat out of frozen yogurt and fresh fruit. Try sticking to primarily whole foods, and assemble a snack that has protein, fiber, and a little fat. Here are 17 great examples of the perfect study snacks.

4. Freeze all of your smoothie ingredients ahead of time so that all you have to do in the morning is BLEND!
