If you are a Desk Jockey and constantly on the go, then you know first-hand how hungry you can get during the workday. When the 2:00 pm munchies strike at work, do you reach for the chips, candy and/or soda? Not only are these snacks unhealthy, but they also don’t provide your body with the fuel it needs to perform well.
Ditch the processed bars, cookies, 'low calorie' snacks, gluten-free crackers, the sugary yogurt. Let’s fuel your brain and power your body.
Try storing these five simple snacks in your desk drawer to satisfy your cravings.
Organic Nut Butters
Loaded with protein, nut butter boosts your energy levels. It tastes good too. If you don’t want to eat it plain, keep snack packs of rice cakes or whole-grain crackers on hand.
Flavorful turkey jerky contains protein that fills you up. It’s also easy to store and comes in a variety of sizes and flavors. Choose low-sodium varieties, if possible, or use low-sodium soy sauce if you make homemade beef jerky.
RXBARs (Clean Energy Bars)
We are fans of RXBARs because they have a simple ingredient list and a good dose of protein. They’re great pre-and post-workout, or to stash in your desk drawer when that afternoon hunger strikes.
Not only are they easy to carry around, but they also help lower your bad cholesterol (LDL).
An apple a day truly may help keep the doctor away.
These five simple snacks offer healthy alternatives to the vending machine and are easy to store in your desk drawer.
