Discover 5 Healthy & Tasty Snacks You Can Keep in Your Desk to Help You Avoid Unhealthy Foods & Lose Weight Faster
We’ve all been there. We’re at work. Hunger strikes between meals and we’re unprepared. Vulnerable.
We rummage through our purse, find nothing but a piece of gum and a crumpled-up candy wrapper that reminds us of yesterday’s very similar predicament.
We walk the long hallway to the vending machine, where no good option waits for us and our self-control doesn’t stand a chance.
Or worse, we’re driving when it hits. We let hunger take the wheel and steer us well off our faithful road to health, straight into the McDonald’s drive-thru.
What To Do When Hunger Strikes: Healthy & Yummy Snacks To Keep At Work, In Your Car & At Home
It’s human to get hungry, and our most basic instinct to eat. This is why smart snacking is crucial, and planning ahead is a huge component.SPECIAL: What’s REALLY Causing Your Weight Gain, High Blood Pressure & Constant Fatigue (If You’re Over 30 You Need to See This)…
So, here are five healthy options to keep in mind next time hunger strikes, so you can feed it before it’s too late – and well before you’ve relinquished control to the beast.
Nuts & Seeds
Rich in protein and fat, these hunger-busting morsels are an excellent choice for anyone craving a little afternoon crunch. Almonds and pumpkin seeds provide a hefty helping of muscle-building protein, while sunflower seeds, rich in Vitamin E, work wonders for damaged skin and disease prevention.
Toss in some flaxseeds for their boost of omega-3 fatty acids – shown to reduce inflammation and promote a strong immune system – for a well-rounded snack bag that’ll silence your stomach’s growls.
Keep in mind that a small serving goes a long way, which means you may want to divvy portions into a reusable container beforehand.
As long as you stick to a small handful, any variety of your favorites will do the trick – without the guilt.
This popular snag-and-run option is perfect for busy days when you don’t have time to mix and match and package.

There are a lot of options out there, but a few simple steps will help prune these choices down:
Skip the fancy claims on the front and flip that bar over – here is where your decision rests. Avoid bars high in added sugars, as well as those boasting a list of ingredients so long it makes your head spin.
Don’t pay too much mind to the calorie count, either. Bars packed with protein and fat will keep you satisfied longer than those with simple carbs and are worth the extra few calories.
There are few things more entertaining to eat than a fresh bag of popcorn. Whole grain, low in calories, and high in fiber, these little kernels of joy are pretty harmless – even if you get distracted while chatting with Kathy and end up eating an entire bag.
Watch out for the pre-packaged options, however, that are high in butter and sugar. These deceptive snacks can carry a lot of added ingredients that don’t do your waistline any favors.
Stick with simple – lightly salted and lightly buttered. That way you’re keeping it light, even if you munch your way through a double serving.
If you’re craving something sweet but don’t want to be naughty, this is your best bet.

A good general rule is to munch on bars with 70% cacao or more. Also, avoid bars with added flavors, like caramel or toffee (nuts and salt are the exception – these enhance the flavor without adding sugar).
Follow that, and you can give in to your sweet tooth without letting it take control. You’ll still get all the chocolatey richness that satisfies a dessert craving without the excess sugar that usually accompanies it.
This one is for all you savory snackers out there who want something salty with sustenance and a low carb count. Tuna has just enough protein oomph to double as a light lunch with a few additional components thrown in.
Opt for the pouch package, which is hassle-free (no draining necessary!) and doubles as its own bowl.
Boring, you say? Doll it up a bit with some diced peppers, cucumber, pickles, or a light dollop of mustard or mayonnaise.
Sprinkle on the pepper or spice it up with your favorite hot sauce.
Smear the spread on a rice cracker or wrap it up in a crispy lettuce leaf for an added crunch.
Snacking should be fun, so let your inner chef take control and play around with all of the flavor possibilities you can find in your office fridge.
Remember, the simple fact is that in the dark depths of hunger, our bodies won’t readily listen to reason or respect self-control. They won’t stop nagging until we’ve given in.BRAND-NEW: 5 “Living Nutrients” That Can Trigger Rapid Fat Loss!
