Easy office snacks
In addition to the recipes in this post, here are some other snack ideas:
- 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 difficult 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?).
