Let’s all take a minute to honestly answer this question: how hard is it to not munch on snacks while sitting at a desk all day?
For most of us, this is a struggle. Not that munching is a bad thing- personally, I prefer snacking and small meals as opposed to eating large meals 2-3 times a day. If we are going to snack at our desks, however, it would be good to pack foods that will keep our energy up throughout the day, and promote overall health.
For this reason, we are providing you with a list of healthy sack lunches that will allow you to snack (if desired), while also actually providing nutrients that should sustain you throughout your work day. No one likes those afternoon hunger pains right before quitting time!
Lunch Option 1:
Edamame (either dried or, well, not dried)
Pretzels & Peanut Butter (for an afternoon snack)
Lunch Option 2:
Ham and Cheese Roll-ups
Nitrate-free ham is choice, as is good quality cheese. Just slice the cheese into strips, and roll up into 4 or 5 slices of ham.
Lunch Option 3:
Can be sliced or mashed- whichever you prefer!
Bell Pepper Slices
Tablespoon (or two ) of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chunks
Lunch Option 4:
Lunch Option 5:
