We want to eat he althier, maintain the desired weight or lose weight… The basis of all this is the food we consume. We spend most of our day at work. Temptations are all around us. Even if we have had breakfast, lunch, sometimes between meals we get hungry and resort to eating unhe althy treats.
And it can be much he althier. We just need a small box to take with us for the day and a little something to eat, prepared at home. Check out some ideas for snacks between meals when you're at work.
Hummus and Carrots

Apple and Peanut Butter/Peanut Tahini
Tahini can replace a handful of raw nuts. Apples are high in fiber. Combine them with peanut butter that has no added sugar or s alt. This snack will keep you full for a long time, plus it's a great pre-workout snack.
Yogurt and blueberries or other berries
Yogurt can be an excellent addition to any diet. You provide calcium, proteins, probiotics, antioxidants. If you like flaxseed, you could complete your breakfast by adding some, but it is important that it is pre-ground or well crushed.
The snacks between meals should be small enough to satisfy our hunger, not to fill us up. Therefore, if you feel like eating a sandwich, prepare something very small. Choose whole wheat or gluten-free bread. Add tomato, cucumber, green salad to it. It is preferable not to use sausage, but to use roasted meat or canned tuna.
