String cheese and nuts
Sounds like an odd combination, doesn’t it? But nuts and strings cheese can be really helpful when it comes to those hunger pangs. String cheese is known to be healthy as it is not too high in carbs and provides you with a sufficient amount protein as well, and all of this while satiating your taste buds. Nuts have healthy fats that will keep your nutrition levels boosted throughout the day.
Greek yogurt with berries and nuts
What better thing to have at work than Greek yogurt? Take some classic Greek yogurt and add some blueberries and almonds to it. It will certainly taste like heaven. Don’t keep it out in the open for too long though as it may get spoilt. You can experiment with the berries as well, adding strawberries one day and cranberries another. This should surely become your favourite snack in no time.
Oatmeal with nut butter
If you are really health conscious, then this is the best and tastiest option for you. Oatmeal with nut butter is a snack filled with fibre and potassium that will keep your hunger pangs at bay. You can make some at home and carry it to your office with you. Right when you feel the hunger building up, you will have a healthy and a filling option ready. What’s more? It has good and healthy fats too.
Are you tired of simply sipping on water as part of your diet plan? Well, you can always try some detox water. Add some sliced cucumbers, lemon slices and mint leaves to your bottle of water and sip on this concoction with joy. Its wonderful taste will encourage you to drink more and more water. You can refill the bottle with the vegetables in them 2 to 3 times throughout the day. Make sure that you don’t keep the vegetables for too long though as that can prove harmful.
Peanut butter sandwich
This delicious sandwich will help you cut down on unnecessary cravings. Make a peanut butter sandwich and add some sliced bananas to it for that extra flavour. Peanut butter is known to be a good source of nutrients. You can use any other nut butter though if you are allergic to peanut butter. You can even keep the jar of peanut butter on your desk and eat a spoonful from time to time. All that nutty, healthful goodness in just one jar!
Crackers can often create a mess when they are being consumed but there’s certainly a lot of nutritional value in there. You can have them with either hummus butter or feta cheese or even with nut butter. They will fill you up and satisfy your taste buds at the same time. Make sure that you don’t eat too many though.
