These healthy office snacks will keep you going in the afternoon while keeping things light. Tons of easy portable recipe ideas.
Our first round up post of 2017!! I love doing this kind of post because it helps me get some recipe inspiration…I always end up with a ton of great ideas, and this post is no exception.
Today I’m rounding up 17 healthy office snacks. Criteria: must be portable, easy to re-heat (or served at room temp), and not break the calorie bank.
Aside from the actual recipes I’m linking to today, here’s some other great ideas for healthy office snacks:
- trail mix, or healthy nuts such as almonds: Be careful with portion size; 1/4 cup is around 175 calories, and should be good to give you a boost of energy to power through the afternoon lull
- fruit: my go-to is an apple in the afternoon. I love adding protein in the form of cheese or nut butter (1.5 oz is one serving size).
- smoothies: this one is hard if you don’t work at home. I love having a green smoothie (this one is my favorite) mid-afternoon to keep my energy levels up.
- hummus: it’s so versatile! Use it as a dip with veggies, spread it on rice cakes, or roll it up in tortillas (how about with some cucumber slices?).
