If you’re reading this, you’re probably among the many Americans who sit in front of a computer screen for the majority of the day. And you probably spend quite a bit of time eating at your desk. Snacking at work can be one of two things: A mindless eating binge or a healthful addition to your overall diet. To prevent consuming large amounts of calories while focusing on your work and not your mindless munching, try a few of these tricks to make your desk a safe space for eating:
Keep healthy snacks on hand. The best way to eat healthy snack foods at work is to always have them on hand. A snack with an adequate amount of carbohydrates, protein, and a little bit of fat is ideal. If your office has a refrigerator, keep low-fat Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and veggies, single servings of cheese, or single-serve packets of hummus. If you don’t have an office refrigerator, don’t stress! There are plenty of snacks you can keep in your desk drawer. I like granola bars, nuts/seeds, dried edamame, or individual packets of peanut butter. Another favorite food find is roasted chickpeas from Biena. They are super crunchy and high in protein and fiber.
