Michael Strahan's Snack Hacks

Plan ahead for grabbing a bite on the go with these fun ideas.

Famed football-star-turned-television-host Michael Strahan might be one of the busiest people in show business, but despite his busy schedule, Strahan makes sure to snack during the day to stay fueled up and energized.

One of Strahan’s favorite grab-and-go snacks is a simple protein salad cup. To build it, he reaches for:

  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato slices
  • Cucumber slices
  • Cooked and shredded chicken
  • Olives
  • Mozzarella cheese

You can make this your own while still keeping it healthy by adding any extra veggies you want! Strahan makes his by using a plastic cup with a lid and placing a fork in the straw hole. You can make yours with any container you have at home–just pop on a lid and stick it in your bag!

Another quick snack hack that can double as breakfast is Strahan’s egg roll and nuts. A quick way to tell if an egg is hard-boiled or not is to spin the egg. Place a finger on the spinning egg, and if the egg continues to spin, the egg isn’t boiled. If the spinning egg stops, then the egg has boiled. Prep this breakfast bite in a sandwich bag with:

  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • Handful of chopped walnuts or your choice of nuts

Have you ever gotten to the last little bit of a vegetable or fruit and thought they only thing left to do was toss it? Or maybe you didn't get to one before it looked like it should be thrown out? Well there's no need to create more food waste! Here are two foods you can regrow right at home instead of throwing out.

Leftover Ginger

  1. Fill a bowl or cup with water and place your bit of ginger root inside.
  2. After a few weeks, watch for little sprouts to form.
  3. At this point, transfer the ginger to some potted soil. Give it plenty of space and moisture.
  4. After a few weeks, harvest your new ginger root!

Sprouted Potato

  1. Note where the sprouts (or eyes) are on the potato. Cut it in half so there are sprouts on both halves.
  2. Let the halves dry out overnight on a paper towel.
  3. Plant the dried potato halves in soil, cut side down.
  4. Small potatoes will be ready to harvest in about 10 weeks, while larger potatoes will be ready in about three to four months.
