Day 5 - 35 Healthy Snacks for Work That You Can Keep at Your Desk
All hail the snack drawer.
21 - Wasabi Peas
If you love a little heat here and there, keep wasabi peas at your desk at all times. They're crispy, crunchy, and fiery, and they're a great way to add a bit of texture and spice to a salad or a soup. Not to mention, peas are full of fiber!
22 - Applesauce
Applesauce is often sold in shelf-stable packets or cups like the one pictured above, which means it's a great snack to keep at your desk. Full of fiber and healthy carbs, it'll definitely keep you satiated, but if you want it to be even more filling consider combining it with some dried nuts you might also have at your desk.
23 - Apples and Pears
Speaking of apples, the fruit doesn't go bad easily, which means you can easily keep it at your desk and be able to enjoy for a week (and often way longer!). Ditto pears—as long as you keep them in a cool place, they should be fine, and that definitely shouldn't be a problem if your office blasts the AC!
24 - Bananas
Remember all the stuff I just said about apples and pears? Well the same is virtually true for bananas. They don't last as long, but a bunch will last you about a week. Pick up five 10 cent bananas the next time you're at Trader Joe's for a weeks' worth of cheap snacks.
25 - Fruit Leather
Fruit leather is another great, shelf-stable, dried snack to keep at your desk at all times. It's sweet and chewy, but packed with natural fiber from the fruits its made with. Eat one with a handful of nuts or seeds for a snack that'll keep you from getting hungry before lunch.
