We are all back on track! School is back in session, vacations are over and we are back to work with absolutely no time to binge eat. When you’re back on-the-go, do you grab a cheese stick or potato chips to add a crunch to your lunch? There are plenty of snacks that won’t add on the pounds for all different types of eaters.
The sweet tooth:
If you’ve got a sweet tooth and no time to dice fruit up into tiny morsels and pre-package them into plastic containers, don’t turn to a quick candy bar, turn to Greek yogurt with fruit at the bottom! Mix it up for a medley of nutrients, protein, and satisfaction without the empty calories. Just don’t forget a spoon!
The quantity over quality eater:
This eater doesn’t care what they’re eating, as long as they’re getting a lot of it! Sometimes cracking open a box of salty snacks can lead to destruction…of the entire box! Fortunately, we have a solution to this–popcorn! Fat-free popcorn is low on calories, low fat, and you can eat a lot of it. Add a spritz of fat-free butter spray for extra taste with no added calories.
The sucker for savory:
I’m a sucker for savory! Mid-workday I’m craving a steak, but there’s no grill in sight. What about baby-back ribs? I can’t wear a bib at work either! The way I satisfy my savory craving is crackers and cold-cuts. A quick handful of Triscuits and a couple of slices of deli cold-cuts is quick, easy and overly satisfying.
What’s your favorite snack when you’re at the office, at school, or on your way out the door?
