Nuts are packed with fibre and protein and very tasty too. You can keep a small bag of almonds, cashews or pistachios in your desk drawer for when you feel the hunger pinch. This is because they are not only healthy but they are quite filling as well. As long as you eat them in moderation you will reap the rewards of this healthy snack. You should avoid nuts that are covered in oil. Opt for dry or raw nuts instead: they are less loaded with fat.
Popcorn is not just a good movie night nibble. It is a convenient healthy snack for work too. Pop them into the microwave or pot for about 5-10 minutes. Then into a plastic bag they go, and you are off. Popcorn is rich in fibre and antioxidants, and unlike some other healthy foods, it does not taste like cardboard. As long as you keep the salt and flavouring to a minimum, this should be a reliable and simple snack.
Oh, what would the world be without chocolate! Now you get to have some at work, guilt free. When eaten in moderation dark chocolate can give our bodies a good share of iron, fibre and antioxidants. Amongst its many reported health benefits are lowered blood pressure, increased brain function and protection from diabetes. So, go ahead and snack on the good stuff, your body will thank you for it.
