Keep 'em healthy, too!
You can cut down on both costs and calories by prepping your office snacks at home. Power your way through the midday slump with these wholesome nibblers! Here are 5 ideas for easy and healthy office snacks you can make in a jiffy.
1 Make granola without an oven.
Munch on granola to curb your cravings. The best part? You don't need an oven to make a batch. Combine peanut butter and honey in a bowl; microwave for 20 seconds. Add this mixture to old-fashioned oats, cereal, nuts, and dried fruits. Stir well, allow to dry at room temperature, and crumble the mixture into pieces.
2 Give hard-boiled eggs an instant upgrade.
All you need are a couple of supermarkets finds to make eggs more exciting. Peel and slice hard-boiled eggs in half. Spoon store-bought red pesto on top and garnish with fresh basil leaves. Tada!
3 Pop some popcorn!
Did you know that popcorn is one of the healthiest snacks out there? Make sure to skip the butter, salt, and cheese powder to keep it diet-friendly. Instead, stick to herbs, citrus zest, and natural seasonings.
4 Mix up some nuts.
Spice up your afternoon with a flavor-packed nut mix. Roast pecans, almonds, walnuts, and pistachios, then coat them in a caramelized mixture of sugar, ginger, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, and cayenne pepper.
5 Make coconut balls to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Craving for something sweet? Make choco-nut bliss balls! All you need are five ingredients: cocoa powder, shredded coconut, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract. Mix everything in a bowl, form into balls, chill, and roll in shredded coconut.
