5 Healthy Snacks You Should Keep At Your Desk
It’s important to know that the food we consume makes up not only our health and weight, but also affects our productivity.
Sitting at a desk all day long can be challenging, especially when afternoons roll in and you’re dying to have a snack. Instead of grabbing non-sustenance foods like sweets or cookies, it’s better to go for nutritious, low-calorie snacks with lots of protein and less sugar.
Here are our top 5 healthy snacks that’ll keep you healthy and active all day long:
Almonds are a great source of protein and healthy fat. They contain nine essential nutrients, have the highest rate of protein and fiber, and have monounsaturated fats that help increase our HDL levels.
Fresh fruit is always the best option, but you can always mix things up and try dried apricots, raisins, apples, or bananas. These are high in fiber and potassium, helping your digestive system run smoothly.
String Cheese or Cottage Cheese
Eating string cheese or cottage cheese for a snack is perfect to keep your blood sugar levels steady. Just make sure you keep it refrigerated to avoid spoilage!
Vegetables and Hummus
One of our personal favourites - hummus and vegetable like carrots, provide an excellent source of healthy carbs and nutrients, keeping you full and satisfied for the rest of the day. The chickpeas in the hummus also contains a great amount of calcium, iron, protein, and fiber, preventing your blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly.
Edamame is gluten and cholesterol-free, low calorie, and contains numerous source of protein, iron, and calcium.
