When it comes to office snacks, it is very easy to succumb to the lolly jar or biscuit tab when we need a little midmorning snack to get us to lunch. Without convenient pre-planned healthy office snacks, you will often find yourself making those not-so-great choices. The answers, stocking up your desk drawers with non-perishable healthy snacks to keep those hunger pains at bay until your next meal.
We have reached out to our fellow nutritionists, healthy lifestyle bloggers and internal Snacks With Bite team to bring you the 5 office snacks that you MUST have in your desk drawer.
What to look for when sourcing snacks for your desk drawer?
Avoid snacks filled with sugar, these cause sluggishness and energy crashes. Instead, look for snacks that are high in protein, fibre and healthy fats that will keep you full long into the afternoon and will boost your overall mood.
Jerky is a super filling, convenient snack that won’t derail your health kick. Beef Jerky is a popular paleo treat as it does not include any carbs and packed full of protein. What is handy about Jerky as a health office snack is that it has a long shelf life and extremely portable which means you can keep it in your office drawer until you are in need of an emergency snack. We recommend Empire Beef Jerky; they use 100% grass-fed rump beef packed full of flavour and nothing artificial.
FLAVOURED FABA BEANS
Human Bean Co faba beans are one of the best healthy chip alternatives on the market. Grown from GMO-free seeds in Australia, these better-for-you office snack is a must-have in anyone’s snack drawers. Packed full of protein and fibre, these flavoured faba beans will keep you fuller for longer and productive throughout the workday. This healthy snack is for everyone, vegan, nut-free and gluten-free. People often say faba beans have an overly beany and balance taste, but these faba beans come in a range of flavours from sea salt, salt & vinegar, pizza flavour Aussie BBQ and lime and black pepper. This snack ticks the boxes on all front.
Protein balls make a fantastic afternoon snack, as they feel like a sweet treat without setting up for a sugar crash. Perfect for stashing in the work desk as a little afternoon treat with a cup of coffee or tea. With the range of delicious sweets, choc brownie, peanut butter, and salted caramel, you won’t believe they are good for you. We love Health Lab Protein balls as they taste like your favourite dessert but are good for you.
Popcorn is a delicious morish office snack that will be sure to satisfy. Serious Food Co offers an assortment of the smaller single-serving sized pack, making them the perfect for your office snack drawer. When appropriately sealed, popcorn keeps for a long period of time and take up very little space in a desk drawer.
When are can’t decide on a healthy office snack, go for a trail mix? You can select your favourite nuts, seeds and dried fruit. If you feel like adding some indulgence, add some dark chocolate chips.
