What are the best healthy snacks for work?
Snacking is good for you!
Snacking is good for you as long as you choose the right snacks!
We will go through why snacking is important and what snacks help you stay fit and healthy!
Why are healthy snacks good for you?
Snacking gives you an energy boost during your busy day.
When working 8 hours a day, you need energy to keep going. Choosing healthy snacks give you the nutrients you need to wait until your next meal.
What snacks should I choose?
✓ No added sugar dried fruits
They taste great and contain as much as nutrients than fresh fruits in a much smaller package! They are full of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Idea brand: Press - Top Banana Bites £3.25
✓ A handful of nuts
Nuts are really good for you, they are a good source of fibre, protein and healthy fat.
A 28 gram serving of almonds gives you 6 grams of protein!
Ideal brand: I love snacks Smoked almonds £1.30
✓ Energy balls
Energy balls give you a boost of energy as they are made with superfoods such as seeds, coconut oil and nut butter... They are high in dietary fibre and protein. it’s better to choose energy balls that contain only natural ingredients.
Ideal brand: Kitchen & Soul Chocolate Bomb - Turmeric £3.00
✓ Roasted Peas
Full of protein and fibre, roasted peas are the perfect healthy snack for work.
It’s full of nutrients such as B-vitamins and minerals.
I’ve tried roasted peas for the first time last month, and they are delicious!
They are crunchy, full of flavour and 100% natural.
Ideal brand: Brave Paprika & Chilli (12 pack) £11.99
✓ Healthy Cookies
Yes! Cookies are good for you. But healthy cookies, made with 100% natural ingredients.
You can make them yourself (Daphne shared a recipe with you a few weeks ago if you want to check it out: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Recipe)
Or if you are like me, not a great chef, you can buy them!
I recommend cookies made with oats rather than flour because they are incredibly nutritious and naturally gluten-free.
Ideal brand: Wholey Moly Cookies £1.95
