5 Healthy Desk Snacks
Can’t quite keep away from snacking at your desk? Get rid of all the garbage in your drawers, handbag and other compartments and try some of these healthy snacks instead. They are sure to keep you feeling fuller for longer and taste amazing!
A few pieces of dark chocolate is the best way to curb those sugary cravings when 3pm hits. Choose anything higher than 85 per cent since it’s healthier for you and isn’t packed with nearly as much sugar. Enjoy a few pieces with your green tea to unwind in the afternoon.
Not only are blueberries a healthy snack, they’re also easy to find at all supermarkets! Simply rinse them with water and keep them at your desk the entire day.
Enjoy a handful of crunchy edamame beans the next time you’re feeling peckish. They are packed with fibre, protein and antioxidants, which all contribute to a healthy body in the long-term. Sprinkle with sea salt or even use them in your salad!
Swap the potato chips for a handful of healthy pistachio nuts. Choose the variety which are unsalted since they taste even better raw and roasted. Yum!
Any type of dried fruit including mangoes, pineapple and apple is a great snack to stash on your desk or in your handbag. It doesn’t need refrigerating, tastes amazing any time of the year and is so yummy!
