I don’t know if they sell these in preportioned packages, but I LOVE whisps. They’re literally just parmesan cheese crackers. So obviously if you’re dairy free those won’t work. You can also make them yourself by packing some parmesan cheese (and spices if you want) on a wax paper lined baking pan and bake at 425F until it’s crispy. Then just break them apart and preportion them into sandwich baggies.

RX bars are also good, my fav are the apple cinnamon.

What about fruit? My favourite for a quick snack is honeycrisp apples.

I love to keep dried fruit or raisins at my desk. Gives me a bit of a sweet treat without being too bad.

i never graze during the day but at night if iwant a snack i have a soft spot for tortilla chipas and dip. actually right now im slightly obsessed with cape cod chips in the aged cheddar flavor. so good. its more about the crazy crunch though. love that.

and when its that time of month i ALWAYS have to have a hershey bar with almonds. that is an absolute must.

im a creature of habit though so during the day i tend to eat exactly the same thing. a banana for breakfast with coffee. bring tea to work. lunch is grilled chicken and eithe rgreen beans or brocolli. then an apple (gala) or pear around 2.

man, putting that in writing makes me feel like rain man or something

I like Boom Chicka Pop popcorn, organic, lightly salted, 80 cals in a bag. Healthier than chips!

Wow that is a lot of snacks to have on hand during a work day.  

I generally find “healthy” snacks are actually higher in calories and fat/sugar than many regular chocolate bars.  If I need something to hold me over I tend to go for a kid’s multipack bag of crisps – the ones that are puffed or something so they are light, or a kid’s chocolate bar so I can have a little chocolate fix but it is really well proportioned.  The other thing I usually have if I am actuallu hungry is a chunk of cheese as it is super filling.

I tend to keep any snacks to around 100 calories or so, if I am any hungrier than that I just have an earlier meal.  I avoid cereal bars, granola bars etc for the most bart because I don’t need 3/400 calories of nuts and oats between lunch and dinner.  

I don’t keep snacks in a desk drawer though, I just pop out if I need something.  It gives me a big of fresh air and I try to get up from my desk every hour.

futuremrss17 :  No I know you don’t eat them all in one day, I just mean that is a lot of variety!

futuremrss17 :  peanut butter and apple slices, all the way! add a half-palm-sized serving of granola on the side to spice things up đŸ˜‚ 

 

to make this work-friendly, get the Jif to-go cups of PB, and slice an apple up before work. Granola is easy to keep around. 

 

you might also like the Angie’s Boom Chicka POP sweet & salty kettle corn that dimes in the small 140cal bags. I love that stuff! Angie’s also has a new trail mix out that has chocolate covered popcorn with nuts and a few pieces of dried fruit.
