The most traditional alternative to tea and bread is leftover food. You can make your leftovers from the previous night more exciting by recooking them.

Cook some onions; add tomatoes and grated carrots, bell pepper, and garlic. Have the sauce with your leftovers.
There are however foods that you can have on the go or when you are in a hurry. Not just because they are easy to carry with you on the go or their taste, they also have nutritious advantages.
- Eggs – boiled or fried, eggs are rich in protein and healthy fats. They have a vast range of vitamins and proteins.

Dr. Dhurandhar talks about how eggs can curb hunger throughout the day which in turn, helps in obesity cases and in reducing weight.
- Avocado. Avocados have good fats and this helps to curb sugar cravings. They contain very low saturated fat. They also contribute to hormone health. Avocados can be eaten on the go or added to a salad or a dip. The nutritional value adds to whatever it is that you wish to consume. Avocados do not contain any sodium or cholesterol. You can make a sandwich or a vegan burger with it. Using avocado instead of the common bread spread also works wonders for your calorie intake.
