20 Snacks to Munch on At Work



It’s ten in the morning or maybe around three in the afternoon on a busy workday and suddenly the hunger pangs hit you. Don’t reach for diet trap foods like protein or energy bars that can have up to 300 calories for just one bar. Instead, pick these foolproof healthy snacks that will satisfy your cravings but won’t sabotage your diet.

Ideally, you should keep snacks under 125 calories or slightly more.

  1. Hard-boiled egg - One large hard-boiled egg has 78 calories and 6 grams of protein. That’s enough protein to keep you full till lunch time or dinner. If you need more, add a serving of baby carrots.
  2. Baby carrots - One serving of baby carrots (8 baby carrots) totals to 30 calories (1 baby carrot has 4 calories).
  3. Apple slices - One medium sized apple has around 95 calories and 4.4 grams of dietary fiber. Plus, apples make great mid-morning snacks because they contain 13 grams of natural sugar. These sugars have a similar effect to caffeine without the jitters and jolts.
