Day 6 - 35 Healthy Snacks for Work That You Can Keep at Your Desk
All hail the snack drawer.
26 - Veggie Chips
Did you know: You can make veggie chips out of nearly any kind of vegetable? Here's how to do it, but if you don't feel like DIYing it, you can also find great veggie chips at your local supermarket.
27 - Freeze-Dried Fruit
Freeze-dried fruit is basically regular fruit that never goes bad. Nothing is added to it, and you can rehydrate it easily by adding liquid. That means it's great for adding to things like oatmeal or cereal. Top it all of with a bit of milk and watch your freeze-dried strawberries become real strawberries.
28 - Fruit Chips
OK so what I said about how you can make chips out of almost any vegetable, that's true for pretty much any kind of fruit, too. Again you don't need to make them yourself to enjoy them—there are plenty of pre-made options that you can easily find at the supermarket.
29 - Rice Cakes
Rice cakes may be famously flavorless on their own, but they're the perfect vessel to top with almost any kind of spread. Want something sweet? Smear a bit of nut butter and honey onto one of them. Or, try them topped with guacamole or hummus for a quick, savory treat.
30 - Canned Sardines
If you're a fish lover (and you don't mind offending the noses of some of your officemates) canned sardines are a great, high-protein snack to keep at your desk. Eat them on top of those healthy crackers that you also have stored at your desk, or throw them on top of the salad you brought from home.
