Days at the office are long, and hunger can strike at the most inconvenient times. If your stomach is grumbling just hours after breakfast or you feel like dinner is too far away, it’s important to eat a snack. Snacking the right way with healthy fats, light protein, high fiber and appropriate portion sizes can keep you energized and focused — plus it can help promote weight loss.
But the unhealthy junk-food options in most vending machines and office break rooms aren’t always the best solution for those workday bouts of hunger. Forget the candy, potato chips and sad desk snacks and turn instead to these recipes: They’re nutritious and simple enough to make at your desk or in the shared office kitchen. Now healthy snacking can be as integral to your daily routine as checking your email.
