What should you do when you crave a snack at work? I sometimes get an overpriced candy bar from the vending machine, but I realize that’s not the best option. I know it would be cheaper and healthier if I brought a snack from home. But I’m not much of a cook, and I don’t have the patience to mess around in the kitchen in the morning.

So I did a little research, searching for cheap, easy, healthy snacks. And I found an article on WebMD that seems to offer some reasonable options! Here’s what they suggest:

Snacks to stash in your desk

  • Trail mix (dried fruit and nuts)
  • Healthy breakfast cereal (the low-sugar kind)
  • High-fiber, low-sodium, low-fat soup
  • Instant oatmeal
  • Cans of tuna (packed in water) and crackers
  • Natural peanut butter and crackers

Snacks to store in the refrigerator

  • Low-fat yogurt with fruit
  • Low-fat cottage cheese with fruit
  • Reduced-fat cheese and crackers

Most of these snacks sound pretty tasty to me. (Especially the peanut butter and cracker option. Yum.) And I appreciate the fact that they’re healthy and don’t require a lot of effort to produce.

So what kind of workplace snacks do you prefer? Do you have any easy, healthy suggestions? Please share your thoughts in the Comments section below!
