6 Healthy Snacks to Get You Through the Work Day
You’re busy enough already, so when 3 PM rolls around and your stomach starts to growl, it’s understandable that you run to the strategically-placed vending machine down the hall. But we both know that a bag of chips or candy isn’t really going to fill you up!
Instead, try one of these healthy, energizing, and (best of all) delicious, snacks. Most of the healthy food recipes can be prepared ahead of time, so you can grab them on the way out the door, keep them at work, and be ready whenever hunger strikes.
Avocado Slices with Lemon-Soy Sauce
If you are an avocado lover like I am, you need to try this simple and delicious snack. The lemon and soy sauce really bring out the yummy avocado flavor. Arrange avocado slices on a plate (or in a jar or Tupperware if you are taking it to work), then drizzle with lemon juice and soy sauce. Garnish with scallion.
Persian Yogurt Cucumber Dish
This is a traditional Persian dish made from yogurt and cucumbers. You can use any plain yogurt you like, although I highly recommend Greek yogurt because of its creamier consistency and tangy taste
Egg and Gruyère with Tarragon on Whole-Grain Baguette
This protein-packed combination will satisfy your craving for something substantial and hold you over for hours. You can either use the entire hard-boiled egg or go super healthy and just use the whites.
Tasty Tuna with Asian Flair
You’ll never look at a can of tuna the same way again after making this five-minute recipe! Not only is it super yummy, but it’s healthy, too.
This is such a fantastic recipe to prepare over the weekend so that you’ll have a tasty grab-and-go breakfast or snack for the rest of the week. These will surely curb your craving for carbs, give you energy, and hold you over for many hours. Plus, they’re way healthier than those sugary, processed power bars you find at the store.
Honeycrisp Apple Sandwich
You don’t need to be a kid to enjoy this simple, delicious, and healthy snack. It’s so tasty that sometimes I even have it for dessert. You can use any sort of apple for this, but Honeycrisp is truly amazing.
