Best snacks to eat at your office desk

office snacks

Having healthy snacks for work on hand at the office is key to staying fueled and focused when you need it most.

Whether you’re in the middle of a big project or you are chained to your desk with a looming deadline, snacking will help keep your energy up and your blood sugar stable during an afternoon slump.

Here is a list of healthy options you can keep right at your desk, no jockeying for fridge space or deal with thieving coworkers.

Almonds.

They make a healthy snack that’s packed with protein, fiber, calcium, zinc, and antioxidants.

They are a source of many nutrients, which help in the development, and health of the human brain.

Sunflower seeds

Enjoying a handful of mild nutty tasting sunflower seeds with their firm but tender texture to take care of your hunger and get a wealth of nutrition at the same time.

Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, the body’s primary fat-soluble antioxidant.

Low-fat popcorn

Popcorn is a great between-meal snack. “Popped corn” is mostly air, which makes it highly effective for staving off hunger cravings without damaging your diet.

This low-calorie snack will satisfy your craving for something salty and crunchy, and it’s also a good source of fiber.

Dried fruits

It’s a healthy office snack, unsweetened dried fruit! It lasts a long time, it’s easy to eat and it’s filled with natural deliciousness.

Dried fruit is high in fiber and nutrient dense. Plus, it is a great source of energy when you need a little pick-me-up at work because they contain little to no fat while also containing a significant amount of calories.

Plain Yogurt

Plain yogurt with a little fruit -strawberries maybe- make a good combo for an office snack.

 

Nuts

Grabbing a handful of nuts from the little bag in your handbag saves you the inevitable regret later on when you realize that you have binged on something unhealthy and fattening.

Nuts are packed with proteins. While most other snacks are packed with carbs and other empty calories, nuts are one of the few snack items that have proteins and fill you up for a long time.

 

Fruits

Fruits are packed with vitamins and minerals, they have the best form of natural sweetness, and they are good for a snack if you are feeling low on energy in the office. They are also a great source of antioxidants needed for a stronger immune system and a better performance at work.

Strawberries, gooseberries, oranges, apples, bananas, and melons they’re all packed with antioxidants and vitamins.

Protein bar

Be careful with these! Some protein bars are packed with calories. Check the ingredients and make sure the one you pick has fruit, nuts, and fewer than 200 calories.
