At the office I’m tempted to go to the vending machine or to the canteen and grab a chocolate or packet of crisps for a snack. I am looking for healthy alternatives to snacks when at the office. Please help.
Ronald says: Spending your entire day at the office shouldn’t limit your snack choices. The key to this is preparation, so come to work with healthy snacks, and you’ll improve focus, energy, increase productivity, and avoid packing on those extra kilograms. Try these options:
Health benefits: Walnuts are high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
Snack tip: Pair a handful of walnuts with a piece of low-fat cheese, your favorite fruit for a morning snack that will help you feel full longer.
Health benefits: Apples are loaded with pectin, which helps suppress your appetite.
Snack tip: Eating an apple mid-day helps control blood sugar and may aid in weight loss. Have it with a spoonful of peanut butter to add muscle-building protein and healthy fat.
Health benefits: Greek yoghurt has twice as much protein as regular yogurt. Plus, it contains healthy bacteria, known as probiotics, to keep your digestive tract healthy.
Snack tip: Mix half a cup of Greek yoghurt with ¾ cup of berries for a midday snack.
