Whether you’re working from home or in the office, one thing has never changed — our seemingly insatiable cravings for a snack every so often.
Snacking helps to keep your hunger levels on an even keel, especially on days when your mealtimes are spaced further apart. Having a snack one to three times a day is better than letting yourself get to the point of becoming ravenously hungry, because then you’ll tend to make poor eating choices and consume more calories.
We know the feeling of immense guilt when we reach over for a pack of cookies or a bottle of drink that’s loaded with sugar, but snacking can actually be guilt-free too! Below, we’ve gathered 12 healthy and delicious snacks that you should stock up on to satisfy those cravings throughout the day.
