Hello loves, ❤

Whether you work from home, in an office, or somewhere where you’re running around all day, it’s a great idea to keep a handful of healthy snacks at your desk or in your bag to grab whenever you’re feeling a little peckish.

I always bring my own lunch and snacks to work because it’s less expensive and I’m more likely to make healthier choices that way (although sometimes I cave and & go downstairs to Coles w/ my work colleagues). Here are some ideas to make your desk the healthiest, most delicious place in the office:

 

NUTS & SEEDS

These are some of the best snacks to keep at your desk because they don’t go bad easily and they’ll keep you full between meals. Almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, and pumpkin seeds are some of my favourites. Stick to unsalted varieties, although dark chocolate-covered almonds are fine in my books 😉

 

DRIED FRUIT

The types of dried fruit you can find are endless which means you’ll never get bored. Stock up on one or more packets of dried pineapple, mango, apricots, raisins, cranberries, apple, goji berries, figs, dates, berries, coconut, etc. Stick to unsulphured and no added sugar varieties.

 

FRESH FRUIT

Instead of having a candy bowl at your desk, why not have a fruit bowl? Apples, bananas, pears, avocado, cherries, and peaches are great options that don’t really need refrigerating.

 

RICE CRACKERS

I like to spread avocado on rice crackers with some lime juice and Himalayan sea salt on top. Another option is to top either with some almond butter, banana, honey, and cinnamon.

 

SNACK BARS

There are so many snack bars out there, but you want the kind without high fructose corn syrup. My favourites are the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Lara Bars and Dark Chocolate Cherry Kind Bars.

 

KALE CHIPS

I loooove the KALE because its delicious and very healthy for you! You can even make your own Kale chips.

 

CHOCOLATE CHIPS OR DARK CHOCOLATE

We all have those days when we need a chocolatey pick-me-up, and it’s better to have some relatively healthy options at your desk rather than having to buy whatever’s at the cafe.

 

TEA

Not a snack per se, but I always have tea at my desk to sip throughout the day. My favourites English Breakfast, Chamomile, Peach & Peppermint.

 

EXTRAS

Lemon, lime, cinnamon, honey, and chia seeds are all great for adding some variety and flavour to your snacks. If you have a fridge at work, you could also keep things like almond milk, nut butters, and coconut water in there.

 

SNACK COMBINATIONS

Here are a few ideas for combining those snacks you’ve got stashed at your desk!

 

  • Dates + Almond Butter + Cinnamon
  • Rice Crackers + Avocado + Lime Juice
  • Ezekiel Bread + Almond Butter + Banana + Honey + Cinnamon
  • Coconut Water + Chia Seeds = Chia Fresca
  • Pumpkin Seeds + Goji Berries + Chocolate Chips
  • Apple + Almond Butter + Cinnamon + Honey
  • Almonds + Sunflower Seeds + Dried Strawberries + Banana Chips
  • Almonds + Chocolate Chips
  • Green Tea + Chia Drink

 

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

      1. I didn’t think I would like raw sunflower seeds because I have always loved the roasted and salted, but I gave it a try for a healthier snack and totally surprised! Brandy was right! 🙂 You are right they are addictive! 😉

      1. Google and Wikipedia says rockmelon is cantaloupe. I think feta is cheese but I don’t know if I have ever tried it. I will ask the produce people if they will show it to me because they do make some trays with fruit and cheese. I ❤ them!
