When you’re sitting in the office all day, you get hungry, perhaps before or after lunch and you’re looking for a snack. Instead of heading off to the vending machine to pack yourself full of calories from a bag of chips or some cookies, why not try something that is both satisfying and healthy? Here are 10 great healthy snacks that you can take to work with you and snack on at the comfort of your desk.
1. Cucumbers with Fixings
Cucumbers taste great and are low calorie veggies, but they can also be dressed up so many ways with so many fixings. Try sprinkling them with some sea salt, red pepper and lemon juice for a tasty snack. You can also use them to dip into hummus or a yogurt based dip for a yummy flavor combination.
2. Crispy Chickpeas
Chickpeas are packed with protein and can fill you up without packing on the pounds. Try placing a can of chickpeas on a foil-lined pan, spraying them with cooking spray and tossing them with garlic powder and seasoning salt. When baked for 45 minutes in a 450 degree oven, the chickpeas will get golden and crunchy, giving you the perfect, satisfying, crunchy snack.
