HEALTHY SNACKS YOU CAN TAKE TO WORK
Here is a list of tasty snacks that are perfect for work breaks:
Hummus and Carrots. Hummus is made from chickpeas and sesame oil, so it's high in protein and contains healthy fat and fiber. Carrots are high in vitamin A and potassium. This snack is balanced and satisfying!
Apples and Peanut Butter. Apples are high in fiber, and there are so many varieties to choose from. Try natural peanut butter or almond butter that doesn't have any added sugar.
Yogurt and Fruit. Yogurt can be an excellent addition to your diet, as long as it's not loaded with sugary mix-ins. Try plain Greek yogurt with fresh fruit. This will provide lots of calcium, protein and beneficial probiotics.
Rice Cakes. A plain rice cake is low in calories and relatively bland, so it makes a nice base for most toppings. Try topping your rice cakes with an egg salad filling, sliced avocado, plain yogurt and berries, or cottage cheese.
Popcorn. Popcorn counts as a whole grain because it's high in fiber. It's also low in calories as long as you don't cover it with melted butter.
Tuna and Crackers. Grab some whole wheat crackers, slice up a stalk of celery, and pick up some canned tuna. This snack is high in fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Trail Mix. Trail mix is generally some combination of nuts and dried fruit, and possibly some cereal or granola. It can potentially be in high in calories, so it might be a good idea to divide and package trail mix into individual portions.
Guacamole on Celery Sticks. You can drop several calories and unnecessary fat by spreading guacamole on crisp celery sticks rather than tortilla chips. Guacamole will provide healthy fats and nutrients to help you power through your day.
