There’s no surprise that more than enough of us often get a little hungry during the workday. Whether it’s because we skipped breakfast, itching for lunchtime or it’s the afternoon slump, we’ve all felt that rumble in our stomach letting us know that we’re hungry. To combat these hunger issues, many of us bring snacks to work but it’s easy to get bored of them, especially if you’re eating them every day. Luckily for you, we’ve come up with a list of 5 perfect snacks for work that you won’t get bored of.
Carrots and hummus are one of the most versatile snacks for work. Made from chickpeas and sesame oil, hummus is high in protein and is an excellent source of healthy fats and fibre. Carrots are also an excellent source of vitamin A and potassium, making carrots and hummus a well-balanced, satisfying and delicious snack. What is great about this snack is that you can substitute the carrots and hummus with different items. For example, if you feel yourself getting bored of carrots, substitute the carrots with celery or if you feel bored of hummus, switch it out for cottage cheese or another dip. This snack is so versatile that it makes it difficult to get bored. Further, easy to transport from home and work, this snack is the perfect work snack.
A versatile food, rice cakes are the perfect snack for work. Usually made from brown rice, rice cakes are healthy as they are filled with fibre, carbohydrates and phytochemicals. Low in fat and calories, they are the perfect snack to fill you up until the next meal. The best thing about rice cakes is that you can combine them with your other favourite and healthy foods. Try spreading almond or peanut butter on them, adding hummus, smashed eggs, avocado, cottage cheese, banana or even berries. With endless topping combinations, it would be difficult to get sick of this snack.
Voted as a favourite healthy office snack by many, dried fruits are some of the most common office snacks and there is a reason for that. Packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre, on average, dried fruits can contain up to 3.5 times the minerals, fibre and vitamins of fresh fruit. What makes fried fruits so good is that there is a huge variety which make them difficult to get bored of. Further, they do not need to be refrigerated, meaning that they last a lot longer than fresh fruit. However, whilst there are many benefits to dried fruits, there are also disadvantages. Vitamin C is heavily reduced when fruits are dried, thus it is important to eat snacks with high levels of vitamin to replace the loss of vitamin C in your dried fruits.
It’s no surprise to anyone that nuts are a great source of healthy fats, dietary fibre and they contain a range of phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals. When eating mixed nuts, you not only gain the dietary benefits of nuts overall, but also from specific nuts. A handful of mixed nuts often contains high levels of vitamin E.
