Well either way, if you find yourself snacking at your desk often throughout the day – it’s not the end of the world. In fact if you are eating healthy snacks it is actually better for you! Many studies say that eating a lot of smaller snacks throughout the day versus 3 big meals is better for your metabolism.
Now don’t take this the wrong way and rush out for some chips and chocolate. If you are going to snack, you’ve got to snack right! So what are some good healthy snacks that you can keep at your desk?
I personally like anything with almonds, unsalted cashews, walnut, etc. And if you want a separate mix with a mid-day pick-me-up and to kick your sugar cravings, separate a little batch and add little chunks of all natural dark chocolate.
Tip: keep your fruit snacking to the morning, and turn to veggies in the afternoon. The reason for this, is that fruits still contain a lot of sugar – although it is good sugar, it is still sugar. Therefore, if we keep them to the morning we are giving ourselves the entire day to burn it off!
Okay I am back.
Anyways, try having some healthy snacks at your desk, and see how much more energized and alive you feel!
