Healthy, Weight-Free Desk Snacks

Dark Chocolate

A piece or two of dark chocolate with 70% cocoa or higher is a terrific daytime snack since magnesium relieves tension. The secret is not to overeat. Break a piece or two, wrap it, and put it in a desk drawer out of sight.


Popcorn is crisp and tasty. If you avoid fake butter, it's healthy! Plain popcorn is low in calories and high in fiber. For taste, add Cajun spice and a touch of salt. Or choose low-sodium, low-calorie popcorn and avoid caramel-coated.

Fresh Fruit

 Fruits include vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and provide natural sugar. Bananas, apples, pomegranate, cranberries, apricots, citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruit, clementines), kiwi, pears, and plums stay well at room temperature. 

Trail Mix

A huge bag of trail mix—store-bought or homemade—makes a great desk snack. Grazing on nuts, seeds, oats, and dried fruit during the day will protect you from overeating at lunch or supper. Maintain its freshness in a sealed bag or split it into parts to avoid eating it all at once. 

Nut Butter

Nut butter, whether you like peanut, almond, cashew, etc., contains "good" fats (monosaturated and polyunsaturated) with many health advantages. Its high protein content will fill you up. Dip fresh veggies or fruits in it or spread it over wholegrain crackers.

Nori Chips

Have you tried these crunchy, nutritious nori chips? These chips, made from baked seaweed (nori), are the sole non-animal source of vitamin B-12 and include high quantities of vitamins A, C, and calcium. Most importantly, nori chips are low in calories, so you can eat more for less!

Juice from fruits and vegetables

It's easy to confuse thirst with hunger, but drinking liters is dull. Instead of sugary beverages and processed fruit juice, drink low-sodium tomato or vegetable juice. Buy small cartons to keep on your desk and obtain vitamins and minerals while drinking. 

Seeds & nuts

Nuts and seeds are perfect desk snacks. Both are snackable and keep nicely. Seeds include protein, vitamin B, minerals, fat, and dietary fibers, whereas nuts provide protein, vitamins, minerals, and fat.
