Nuts and Dried Fruit

Nuts and dried fruit are some of the easiest snacks to bring to the office. Nuts provide protein and fat, while dried fruit contains the carbohydrates you need throughout the day.

Rice Cakes

Rice cakes are the perfect shelf-stable snack to store by your desk. Pair the bland flavor with toppings like fruit or avocado. The snack also comes in different varieties like chocolate, apple cinnamon and even white cheddar.

Apples and Peanut Butter

Apples are high in fiber and water. To spice things up, try having the fruit with your favorite peanut butter brand or almond butter that contains protein and healthy fats.

Granola

Granola is another amazing snack that will keep your stomach from growling throughout the day. You can choose to eat it as it is or add it to your yogurt mixed with freshly chopped fruits.

Yogurt

Packed with calcium, protein and probiotics, yogurt is the ultimate healthy snack. It comes in all sorts of flavors ranging from vanilla, strawberry to blueberry. Try mixing your Greek yogurt next time with some fresh blueberries for an added touch of flavor and texture.

Baked Chips

If you love a good bag of potato chips, try switching it up with some sweet potato or baked chips the next time you go grocery shopping. It’s a healthier alternative, but at the same time it gives you that same crunch you’re looking for in a snack.

Vegetables and Hummus
