Top 10 Quick and Easy Healthy Snacks For WorkApril 24, 2017
At Berkshire Natural, we’re all about making your life easier. We understand you want to eat healthy to fuel your body for energy, but in today’s fast-paced world, it’s not easy to have access to healthy foods all the time. We’re working hard to make that possible by bringing healthy foods and snacks into local businesses around the Boston and New England area! So, we love to stock a company’s shelves with quick and easy afternoon snacks during the workday. Here are some of our favorites:
This is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up! It’s filling, delicious, and has a touch of sweetness to satisfy your palate. We love Green Mountain Greek Yogurt, which comes in a variety of flavors and doesn’t go crazy on the added sugar – no artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup. The company keeps all of their ingredients very natural, so the yogurt is just simple, pure and delicious!
Pretzels and Hummus
Hummus gives you a punch of protein to fill you up while the pretzels satisfy your salt cravings. These snack packs from Cedars are one of our top sellers for good reason. Everyone loves this satisfying snack that helps keep them going throughout the afternoon. Cedars does a great job of portion control so you get the perfect amount!
Nuts and Seeds
Nuts are a great source of protein, so they make for the perfect afternoon snack to keep your stomach satisfied while you wait for dinner. We love Blue Diamond Almonds, Planter’s Peanuts and Eden Pumpkin Seeds are also a great option for something a little different!
If fresh fruit is feeling a little blah to you in the afternoon (didn’t you JUST have an apple for lunch?) some people love the idea of snacking on dried fruit for something a bit different, which helps keep them going through the afternoon. We love love love Peeled Snacks, like these Organic Dried Mangos. They are the perfect sweet, satisfying snack while you are working through the day!
Sometimes, as part of your afternoon snack, you need a little caffeine kick, but you don’t want all of the added sugar and artificial ingredients in a soda. We love Steaz Iced Teas for the perfect amount of sweetness and little bit of caffeine to keep you going! Or, if you prefer coffee, Cold Brew High Brew Iced Coffee is a great option!
Sometimes when you feel hungry, your body is really just telling you that you are dehydrated. Start with a drink first to hydrate and then, if you are really in fact hungry, your body will tell you! To hydrate, the possibilities are endless. We love Polar Seltzer and also Purity Kale Coconut Water!
There’s just something about a granola bar that seems really substantial – like you are getting a real snack! A bar is a great option. We love Clif Bars, KIND Bars, Fig Bars from Nature’s Bakery and also Health Warrior’s Chia Bar!
Sometimes you just need a small treat to make your afternoon at work more enjoyable! Believe it or not, we found some treats that are just the right size for a little something in the afternoon. We love Home Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups also hit the spot for sure!
When you think quick and easy, you think chips. Healthy? Not so much! But, we’ve scoured the ingredient labels for you and found some great options filled with protein and in limited portions so you don’t go crazy! We love Way Better Tortilla Chips and also a local Mass. favorite, Cape Cod Chips!
Light and fluffy and salty – All Good! Some brands are better than others when it comes to this snack idea, so we’ve gone ahead and weeded through the junk, so you can grab a quick afternoon snack! Pirate’s Booty is a great gluten-free, baked popcorn snack that has all-natural ingredients. SO, it might seem like junk food, but in reality, feel free to dig in!
So, there you go! See? Eating healthy isn’t as hard as it seems! Contact us today if you’re interested in bringing these snacks into your office as an easy way to make your employees happy and help them eat healthier.
